Buffalo Bills Ideal WR in Round 5 of NFL Draft: Michael Wilson (Stanford)
This is a great year to need a slot receiver as a majority of the receivers in this year’s class are smaller and will fit that role well. However, if the Buffalo Bills want to add some size to the position, and potentially draft a player to replace Gabe Davis on the outside, Michael Wilson out of Stanford could be a great selection in this round.
However, Wilson is not limited to just outside and could also play inside as a bigger slot. He drew a comparison to Mack Hollins in his scouting report on NFL.com who is coming off an excellent season with the Las Vegas Raiders.
In five seasons at Stanford, Wilson had 134 receptions, 1,662 receiving yards and 11 receiving touchdowns. However, he hasn’t played a full season since 2019 and over the past three seasons has played only 14 total games due to injuries.
The talent is certainly there with Michael Wilson and at this point in the NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills may be willing to overlook the injury history in hopes of finding a steal on Day 3 if Wilson can stay healthy.
