Isaiah McKenzie

Buffalo has tough decisions to make at receiver when they trim their roster to 53. Isaiah McKenzie must be a part of their plans. McKenzie, again, flaunted speed and hands and provides Buffalo’s offense with a dimension they could profit off in the regular season.

McKenzie caught seven of his eight targets for 72 yards. And although he muffed a punt, he returned one for 35 yards, which set up the Bills for another scoring drive. With his return ability and offensive diversity, Isaiah McKenzie is a lock to make the Bills’ roster, especially after the team signed him to a one-year deal this past offseason.
