Buffalo Bills NFL Draft: 3 receivers to target on Day 3
There has been some talk about this year’s NFL Draft not being very good in terms of wide receivers, but I do think this year’s class is relatively deep. There may not be a Justin Jefferson or Ja’marr Chase in this draft but there is some real talent. The Buffalo Bills might be looking to add some of that talent by the time the 2023 NFL Draft concludes.
The Bills just signed wide receivers Deonte Harty and Trent Sherfield via free agency and Isaiah McKenzie recently signed on with the Indianapolis Colts. I do like these two new signings, but I don’t think the Bills are done adding more receivers to their roster; however, at this point, I don’t think that will come in the way of a trade and I don’t think it comes high in the draft either.
The Bills have been busy adding some pieces to their offense this free agency but not so much on the defensive side of the ball, outside of signing their own, such as re-signing Jordan Poyer and Dane Jackson, among others.
My gut feeling is the Bills are going to go heavy with the defense in this year’s NFL draft, but I also see them grabbing a receiver in the later rounds. Someone that could come in, learn and develop, while not being expected to contribute right away. Gabe Davis is on a contract year, Diggs isn’t getting any younger and we have no idea if Cole Beasley or Jamison Crowder will re-sign with the Bills.
So who are some wide receivers the Bills could target later in the draft? I’ve put together three guys here who are all projected as fifth or sixth-rounders, with some potential and upside.
