Expected to be a plug-and-play receiver when the Buffalo Bills drafted him with the No. 41 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Robert Woods had a strong rookie season and developed immediate chemistry with the team’s first-round pick, quarterback EJ Manuel. In his second season, in which he will take over for Stevie Johnson as the Bills’ slot receiver, he has a chance to be an impact player.

Put the ball in Marquise Goodwin’s hands and big things can happen. The speedy wide receiver only made receptions in seven Buffalo Bills games as a rookie, but five of those games included a receiving play of more than 20 yards. There are certainly a few defensive backs that tried to cover Goodwin in 2013 who would attest that speed kills.

If you don’t think there’s a place and demand for small explosive receivers in the NFL, you haven’t been paying attention to the first rounds of the last two drafts. In 2013, the St. Louis Rams traded up with the Buffalo Bills to acquire the No. 8 overall pick and select Tavon Austin, a West Virginia product who is listed at 5’8” and 176 pounds. In similar fashion, the New Orleans Saints traded up seven spots to the No. 20 overall pick in this year’s first round to draft 5’10″, 189-pound Oregon State wide receiver Brandin Cooks.

Listed at 5’9” and 175 pounds by Duke’s official athletics website, senior wide receiver Jamison Crowder is built similarly to Cooks and Austin while possessing a comparable skill set to the recent first-rounders.

One year after signing Mike Williams to a contract extension that would have kept him on the team through the 2018 season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded Williams to the Buffalo Bills for a sixth-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. The most experienced and proven receiver on the roster, Williams figures to be one of Buffalo’s most targeted weapons during the 2014 season.

The Stevie Johnson era is over in Buffalo. The Bills traded Johnson to the San Francisco 49ers on Friday for a 2015 fourth-round pick that can be bumped up to a 3rd.

This article isn’t about the trade or how Buffalo’s offense will look without him in 2014. No, this is about one of the most underappreciated and overcriticized players in recent memory. The majority of fans were positive about Johnson, but there was a small yet vocal group of people who bashed Johnson whenever they could.
