The Buffalo Bills reportedly have worked out wide receiver Charleston Rambo, who could be a Day 3 option in the 2022 NFL Draft

The Buffalo Bills’ front office and scouts are very busy as the NFL Draft is now less than two weeks away. They are doing their homework on as many prospects as possible and that includes trying to find some diamonds in the rough.

One of those players appears to be Charleston Rambo, who according to Tony Pauline with Pro Football Network the Bills traveled to Miami to work out recently.

He played his first three seasons at Oklahoma before transferring to the University of Miami for this past year. As a Sooner, Rambo had a good year in 2019 with 743 receiving yards and five touchdowns alongside two relatively quiet years in 2018 and 2020.

However, this past season with the Hurricanes was by far the best of his college career with 1,172 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. He finished the year breaking 100 receiving yards in five of the six final games. In the one game he didn’t break that mark, Rambo would have 95 receiving yards.

Charleston Rambo could be a development player at the position for the Buffalo Bills

When looking for those diamonds in the rough, teams have to identify a few traits that they like that they can build on as well as believe they can help coach the player up in other areas to eventually become a contributor.

The scouting report on The Draft Network highlights some of those positives that the Buffalo Bills may see that they believe they can build on like his route running, blocking, and “chance to be a down-the-field threat at the next level”.

However, the scouting report did note a player who struggled with drops at times and may need to develop some strength to compete with cornerbacks at the NFL level. The Buffalo Bills are likely looking for a deep threat for this offense and Rambo could eventually be that player after a year or two on the practice squad.
