As the NFL Draft draws closer, many teams are looking to meet some of the prospects they have been scouting.
The Buffalo Bills are a team that will be looking to add some talent in hopes of a Super Bowl run in 2021.
According to Sal Capaccio, the Bills held a virtual meeting with Cincinnati safety James Wiggins.
The Bills had a zoom/virtual meeting recently with 2021 draft prospect James Wiggins, a safety from Cincinnati, according to a league source.
James is a freakish athlete. Missed the entire 2019 season with an ACL injury but rehabbed and returned to play in 2020.

Wiggins missed the entire 2019 season when he tore his ACL.
The COVID-19 short season of 2020 gave him a limited chance to bounce back.
But, he was effective when he returned to the field.
He had 32 tackles, 6 passes defended, and 1 interception in 2020.
He should be a middle-round pick for many teams who are looking for safety help.
In his career, he finished with 87 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 1 sack, and 5 int’s.

At 6-5 and 205 pounds, he was a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award in 2020, an award that is given yearly to the best defensive back in college football.
He also earned 2nd-team All-AAC in 2018.
According thedraftnetwork.com, Wiggins is smart in coverage and has fluid mobility in all directions.
He is a hard-hitter and playmaker, but can be inconsistent.
Wiggins’ injury history is likely going to have an impact on his draft stock.
