Wide receivers the Buffalo Bills can draft, making Gabe Davis expendable: Jordan Addison, USC

Like Flowers, another first-round talent the Bills could look at is USC wide receiver Jordan Addison. The one-time Pittsburgh standout turned-Trojan playmaker enters the draft as one of the top three wide receivers in many minds, and he would undoubtedly make Davis expendable.

Addison stands 5-foot-11 and has the ability to play both outside and from the slot. Some of his best attributes include the ability to run crisp, sudden routes as well as slip past defensive backs on the outside, beating them along the sideline.

Draft expert Lance Zierlein compares Addison to Tyler Lockett of the Seattle Seahawks, and if the Bills were to land a talent like that, watch out. Diggs excels in just about every area of the field and is a much more balanced wide receiver. But, if the Bills got someone like Lockett, in Addison, the field would open up a whole lot.

Addison’s ability to run any route in the book takes a lot of pressure off Allen, and that’s something which Davis cannot do, unfortunately. Over the last two seasons, Addison has gone for over 2,400 receiving yards and 25 touchdowns.
