3. Gabe Davis (Round 4, 2020 Draft)

"Big Game Gabe" was always that type of player since his days at UCF. Scouts noted Davis as a tall player who's great at deep routes and great at tracking deep balls and high-pointing balls on contested catches. Davis was also criticized for his release and predictable routes, making it difficult for him to gain separation.

Davis got drafted to sit behind veteran John Brown, but Davis made the most of his opportunities. One of his first highlight plays would be an impressive touchdown catch against Miami. Davis would make lots of these plays whenever he got the opportunity. Eventually, later in his sophomore year, he would take the reigns at number two.

Davis failed to surpass 600 receiving yards in his first two seasons but took the league by storm after his 200-yard, four-touchdown performance in the 2021 Divisional Round against the Chiefs. Since then, his expectations skyrocketed, but hasn't lived up to the hype. Davis has immense talent as he's had great games, but is never consistent, as there are games where he's nonexistent.

Many fans are indifferent about Davis's tenure as a Bill, but there's no question that he left an impact on the Bills and that he surpassed expectations. However, there is a reason why Davis is getting paid $53 million by the Jaguars as their potential top wide receiver. Not many fourth-rounders get paid that type of money, which makes Davis a "gem" from that draft position.
