Buccaneers Trading Mike Williams To Bills Still Might Not Be Enough To Drop Mike Evans To Steelers
On Friday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded wide receiver Mike Williams to the Buffalo Bills for a sixth-round draft pick and as a result, it could wind up shaking things up a little bit in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
Now that Williams is out of Tampa Bay, the Buccaneers very well might be targeting a wide receiver with the seventh overall selection in the draft and that very well could wind up being Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins should he still be on the board.
Should the Buccaneers indeed land Watkins, then one could easily speculate that the Bills, if given the opportunity, would pass on Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans now that they have acquired Williams. In addition, being as the St. Louis Rams recently signed troubled wide receiver Kenny Britt, they might also be inclined to also pass on Evans with their second pick of the first round as well.
Heading into this week, it was popular speculation that the Pittsburgh Steelers would have no shot at drafting Evans 15th overall and in reality they still might not as the Jacksonville Jaguars or the Cleveland Browns could very well wind up drafting Watkins which would then leave Evans for the Buccaneers.
If, however, Evans makes it past the Bills, the New York Giants then would likely decide whether or not he makes to the Steelers at 15th overall. The Giants currently only have wide receivers Rueben Randle and Mario Manningham to go along with Victor Cruz, so it might be very tough for them to pass on Evans.
