The 2023 NFL Draft is officially here with the first round set to kick off tomorrow from Kansas City. This is a pivotal draft for general manager Brandon Beane and the Buffalo Bills after they saw their season end in a disappointing fashion to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Unfortunately for the Bills, the conference is still just as competitive but the AFC East has gotten much tougher with the New York Jets trading for Aaron Rodgers. This team is still the best in the division but it is no longer a foregone conclusion that they will win another AFC East title.

The Buffalo Bills enter this year’s draft with only six draft picks, beginning with the 27th overall pick but Brandon Beane has been a general manager that is not afraid to make a trade or two over the three day event. With that in mind, this is the final mock draft before the 2023 NFL Draft and what I believe could happen for the Buffalo Bills.

This year there is no consensus number one wide receiver although it has seemed that Jaxon Smith-Njigba has pulled slightly ahead of the rest of the group recently. However, the wide receiver that I believe is the best fit is Jordan Addison, who falls to the Bills in this mock draft and their patience is rewarded.

Jordan Addison is an excellent route runner that is able to create separation from defenders and is a player that can play in the slot but also plays outside. This versatility is one of the reasons that I believe he is the wide receiver the Buffalo Bills need to get with questions about whether or not Gabe Davis will be with the team past the 2023 season.

Addison would fit in seamlessly into this offense as it is currently constructed and make an impact immediately as a rookie. However, he also would be an excellent complement to Stefon Diggs as he develops in the NFL as a number two wide receiver.
