Summary

The East Carolina product could come in to a fair share of targets this year. Sammy Watkins has had health issues the last two years and is still struggling with his foot problems as of mid-May. The Bills seem to be hedging their bets on Watkins a little long term, since they didn't take advantage of his fifth year option. Jones was insanely productive in college, breaking reception records for both single-season and career at the FBS level. Speed was a concern prior to the Senior Bowl and Combine, but he showed he had some at both events. The real question is whether or not he can translate speed in shorts to speed in pads. On tape he didn't get the receptions he did at East Carolina because he separated from defenders - he got them in large part because he saw a massive volume of targets. Still, at worst he should see a ton of work as a possession receiver and his upside could be far more if he can play at the speed he showed in workouts. One hiccup as of mid-May - Jones has a knee injury and is week to week. Every snap is critical for a rookie, especially a receiver who is expected to start early on. So every snap Jones misses is a setback and a concern. (May 22)
