Rookie receiver Zay Jones doing 'nice job' working inside and outside at Bills camp

PITTSFORD -- The assumption since last April's draft has been that second-round pick Zay Jones will become the Buffalo Bills' No. 2 receiver.

Given that there hasn't been much in the way of strong competition, he figures to secure the spot behind Sammy Watkins.

During the process, Jones is showing coaches his versatility as they help with the big jump he's making from small-school East Carolina to the NFL.

"Zay’s done a nice job," coach Sean McDermott said. "I like what (offensive coordinator) Rick (Dennison) and (receivers coach) Phil (McGeoghan) have done with him in terms of bringing him along. He’s working at two different positions: he’s working outside and then he’s working inside in the slot.

"You don’t find a lot of young receivers that can manage the mental part of the game that way."

Jones has generally caught the ball well. He also seems to be steadily becoming more confident with his knowledge of the offense.

"I like how he’s catching the football and you watch him get better and better each day in understanding the system and understanding what it’s going to take to play at this level," McDermott said.
