Buffalo Bills looking at tall wide receivers at Senior Bowl

The Buffalo Bills lost their defensive coordinator to the Cleveland Browns, but Mike Pettine’s position isn’t the only one the Bills are looking to upgrade this offseason. With the team developing a quarterback in E.J. Manuel, the Bills are looking at some of the incoming wide receivers at the top of the draft this year at the Senior Bowl.

According to the Bills official site, the team has been spending some special attention on the taller receivers coming out in this year’s draft class, meaning they could look to take one of the top receiving prospects with one of their first picks.

Bills GM Doug Whaley and his college scouting department have taken note of the fact that six of the receivers on the North and South team rosters at the Senior Bowl stand 6-2 or taller.

This doesn’t mean that the team is for sure going to spend a top draft pick on a receiver, but given the need for targets in Buffalo, it could be an option.
