The Buffalo Bills can become a better offensive team if they land a go-to wide receiver in the 2020 NFL Draft. Here are three that could help — one early round, one mid-round, and one late-round prospect
There’s no doubt that the Buffalo Bills need to add depth to their wide receiver corps. This isn’t to say their current players need to be replaced, because they don’t.
Buffalo did a great job in the 2019 offseason landing some reliable veteran targets. They picked up John Brown and Cole Beasley in free agency and each of them has more than lived up to the expectations they had coming in.
Brown, who has been the No. 1 target this season, enters Week 17 with career-highs in receptions (72) and yardage (1,060). It’s the second time in his career he hit the 1,000-yard mark and the first since 2015. That season, he set a personal best with seven touchdown grabs, and with one more this weekend, he can tie that as well.
Beasley had his best season in terms of touchdowns with six and is also close to matching his best in receptions and yardage as he enters Week 17 with 67 receptions for 778 yards.
As good as they have been, the Bills are missing that one guy who can win the contested passes. There’s no big-bodied wideout that they can rely on week in and week out.
This isn’t to say they need someone to come in and become the No. 1 player but they need a go-to target that can become Josh Allen‘s bail-out receiver. With all that being said, we look at three players who could develop into that for Buffalo — one of which should be available early, one that should be available in the mid-rounds, and one that could be there later in the draft.
