Fifth Round: JL Skinner

Original Pick: Justin Shorter

Among the six draft picks, the one pick that was probably the most questionable was in the fifth round when the Bills selected wide receiver Justin Shorter out of Florida.

Similar to the pick of Dorian Williams, Justin Shorter certainly has a chance to be a productive player for the Buffalo Bills. He is a big wide receiver that can provide some size to the position on the outside and even be a replacement for Gabe Davis down the road.

However, after the selection of Dalton Kincaid along with free agent additions Trent Sherfield and Deonte Harty, the position looked to be pretty well set for this year and the front office can have some time to address it if Davis were to leave in free agency.

During the 2023 NFL Draft, one position that saw players drop was at safety after none were drafted in the first round. There were good players still available late in the NFL Draft like JL Skinner out of Boise State.

The Buffalo Bills have Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde back for this season but could have big questions next offseason. JL Skinner has the potential to be a starter in this league and after one year behind Poyer and Hyde, he could step in as a starter in 2024.
