What If: The Buffalo Bills Drafted Mike Evans?



What If: The Buffalo Bills drafted Mike Evans, instead of Sammy Watkins in the 2014 NFL Draft?

As history goes, Buffalo with the 9th pick, traded up five spots to grab Sammy Watkins at #4. In hindsight, the move should have been for now Chicago Bears’ DE Khalil Mack. Mike Evans, who’s having a considerably better career than Sammy Watkins would have been drafted to a team with E.J. Manuel and Kyle Orton at the helm. You could also (obviously) make the case for OBJ though at the time he wasn’t as highly touted as the previous mentioned.

Would Mike Evans still be on this 2019 team?

Ultimately the 2014 NFL Draft class was absolutely stacked with talent such as Aaron Donald, Dee Ford, Jadeveon Clowney, Ryan Shazier and more.
