Wide Receivers linked to the Buffalo Bills

Jaxon Smith-Njiba: The 21-year-old is viewed as the consensus top receiver in this year’s draft class. He made a top 30 visit to Buffalo, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport. The 6’1″ 196lbs receiver had a monster 2021 season for Ohio State, posting 1,606 yards, and nine touchdowns, on 95 catches. He played 3 games in 2022 before being injured for the year, and only has 15 catches outside his monster 2022 season.

Jordan Addison: The USC receiver is another one of the top guys in this draft at his position. As of late, he’s become a popular mock draft choice for the Bills at the 27th pick. The 5’11” 173lbs receiver made a top-30 visit to Buffalo, according to Ian Rapoport. His best season came as a member of the Pittsburgh Panthers, where he posted 100 catches, for 1,593 yards, 17 touchdowns, and won the Biletnikoff award.

Zay Flowers: After an impressive combine performance where he ran a 4.42 forty-yard dash, Flowers has given an argument for the top receiver in the draft class. The Boston College product has 200 catches, 3,056 yards, and 29 touchdowns in four seasons. Flowers reportedly had dinner with the Bills and had an official top-30 visit with the team, according to Tom Pelissero. The 5’9″ receiver would be a dynamic option out of the slot for star quarterback Josh Allen.

Jalin Hyatt: Hyatt was last season’s Biletnikoff award winner, after he posted 67 catches, for 1,267 yards and 15 touchdowns. Hyatt has really nice speed with a 4.4 forty-yard dash, and could help the Bills take the top off of opposing defenses. He visited the Bills on a top-30 visit, according to Jordan Schultz.

Justin Shorter: According to Bills’ content creator Peter Diblasi, Shorter shared on his Instagram story that he was visiting the Bills. Shorter is a bigger receiver at 6’4″ and 229lbs, and ran a 4.55 forty-yard dash, with a 35.5″ vertical. If the Bills want to add size to their receiver room, Shorter is an option.

Tank Dell: Ryan Fowler of the Draft Network reported that Dell had a top-30 visit with Buffalo. The Houston wideout has been creating a buzz since he put his route running on display at the senior bowl. In three seasons in Houston, Dell posted 228 catches, for 3,155 yards and 32 touchdowns. At only 5’8″, he projects as a slot receiver and could be a really nice weapon for Josh Allen.

Andre Iosivas: Damond Talbot of NFLDraftDiamonds, reported that the Bills were in attendance for Princeton’s pro-day. All eyes were reportedly on wide receiver Andre Iosavis. He is a bigger receiver at 6’3″ and lit up the combine; running a 4.43 40-yard dash, with a 39″ vertical jump, and 19 bench press reps.
