Is Gabriel Davis heading for a breakout season in 2022? Emmanuel Sanders believes so.

While it remains to be seen if Emmanuel Sanders is going to continue his NFL career, the Buffalo Bills passing game could have a new star if Sanders’ prediction comes true. The former Pro Bowl wide receiver was on Good Morning Football on Monday morning talking about the Buffalo Bills.

He certainly may be a little biased since he was just playing for Buffalo last season but had a number of predictions that included Josh Allen winning the MVP next season and the Buffalo Bills being Super Bowl champions.

Sanders also said that Gabriel Davis is going to have a breakout season and he is on his way to a Pro Bowl:

"“I have been around a lot of good wide receivers. He is a Pro Bowl caliber player.”"

He would go on to name wide receivers like Antonio Brown, Demaryius Thomas, and Michael Thomas and said Davis could become that caliber of wide receiver.

Gabriel Davis expected to enter the season as the starter opposite Stefon Diggs

After a promising rookie season, Gabriel Davis was primarily a backup for most of the season with the team adding Emmanuel Sanders last offseason. However, Davis got a chance to step into a starting role towards the end of the season with Sanders and played very well.

He played so well that he set an NFL record for most receiving touchdowns in a single playoff game with four against the Kansas City Chiefs.

With the team only re-signing Isaiah McKenzie and signing free agent Jamison Crowder, the job opposite Stefon Diggs on the outside looks to belong to Gabriel Davis. With a chance to be a starter for a full season, with Josh Allen under center, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Gabriel Davis have a breakout year and even earn a Pro Bowl nomination in 2022.
