This is the time of year when optimism surrounds just about every NFL team. On these teams, certain players have received plenty of hype from their teammates, coaches, and the media coming out of minicamp. It's too early to tell if the hype surrounding these players is legitimate, but Robert Klemko of MMQB took note of players who generated the most buzz from their respective teams to create an All-Minicamp Hype Team. Klemko's "team" included two current Bills players and one former player.
WR: Dezmin Lewis, Bills — “For my money, Dez Lewis is the guy that stood out,” says Rex Ryan.
LB: Preston Brown, Bills — “Gonna be a star,” says Bills assistant coach Rob Ryan.
CB: Leodis McKelvin, Eagles — “The guy that's really stood out the most to me,” says Doug Pederson.
Lewis still needs to prove himself at training camp to see a significant role in this year's offense. With the top two wide receiver spots locked down (Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods), Lewis will look to fend off Greg Salas, Leonard Hankerson, and others for the No. 3 wide receiver job.
Brown, on the other hand, is penciled in as a starter at inside linebacker so it won't take long to see if the hype surrounding the third year player is legitimate.
Last, McKelvin, the former Bills CB, is making waves in Philadelphia. The cornerback has the intangibles you look for in a starting CB, but he never put it all together in Buffalo.
