Wide receivers the Buffalo Bills can draft, making Gabe Davis expendable: Zay Flowers, Boston College

Real quickly, before we get into the details on Zay Flowers and his physical ability, this might be the only guy on the list who doesn’t necessarily make Davis completely expendable. That’s due to the fact that Flowers is more of a slot receiver than anything, standing 5-foot-9.

But, drafting Flowers, trading Davis and potentially signing another outside receiver still out there in free agency could be an option. Think more along the lines of a Julio Jones or someone like that, looking to win right now at this stage of their career.

Now, Flowers is one of the most electric players in this draft class. He’s a possession guy. With the ball in his hands, and just a little bit of open field, he’s dangerous. He has 4.42 speed which is plenty fast, but he’s more shifty and slippery with the ball than anything else. He’s also got the ability to work past man coverage and beat his man deep.

The Bills offense would improve a whole lot with someone like Flowers on the field with Diggs. Both of them are great with the ball in their hands, but the threat of a home run from Flowers ensures the defense is always on their feet. If the Bills wanted him, they’d have to take him at 27 for sure.
