Early-Round Target: Laviska Shenault, Jr., Colorado
This is a name that has been linked to the Buffalo Bills in more than one mock draft. Laviska Shenault, Jr. of Colorado has made a name for himself as the best offensive player for the Buffaloes and could possibly be on the board when the Bills draft in the first round.
There’s really not much chance at all he will be there when Buffalo picks in the second, so this would have to be a day one selection for them. And they should really do their homework on Shenault because he could become the playmaker their offense needs in order to take that proverbial next step.
Shenault is more than just a receiver in the Colorado offense, which makes him even more enticing. He lines up out wide, in the slot, as a halfback, and an H-Back. In addition to all these positions, he even takes snaps as a Wildcat quarterback.
His best season came in 2018 when he had 86 receptions for 1,011 yards and six touchdowns. He added another five touchdowns on 115 yards rushing. This season, he’s seen a dip in production as he has 925 yards from scrimmage with six total touchdowns.
Even with that being the case, the 6-foot-2, 220-pound receiver is one of the better prospects in this draft and could really help Josh Allen and the rest of the offense when they’re struggling.
