The Buffalo Bills added two wide receivers in Day 3 of the NFL Draft with the selection of Gabriel Davis in the fourth round and then Isaiah Hodgins in the sixth. Both players are big pass catchers for Josh Allen but bring different skill sets.
Davis is probably going to be utilized more as a big play threat down the sidelines while Hodgins is an excellent pass catcher who doesn’t have that speed but that will win in smaller, contested areas.
One of the storylines as the 2020 season approaches is what impact of a lack of practices and workouts has on players, especially rookies. The learning curve going from the collegiate level to the NFL is always steep and not having these times in practice with coaches likely will make it tougher.
If Hodgins wants to win this final spot, he is going to need to demonstrate more value outside of just being a receiver. He will have to show he can contribute on special teams to help his case that he should make the final 53-man roster.
