Chase Claypool vs. Mack Hollins vs. Justin Shorter

The final depth chart battle is at wide receiver where there is a lot of moving pieces with 13 players on the roster. It really is anyone's guess at this point how this might shake out but at the top seems pretty much set with Keon Coleman, Curtis Samuel and Khalil Shakir with Marquez Valdes-Scantling not far behind.

It remains to be seen how many wide receivers the Bills will end up keeping on their 53-man roster but at a minimum it is probably five but could be six. If it is five, the three players with the best chance to earn that spot is Mack Hollins, who was signed as a free agent early in free agency, Justin Shorter, who was a fifth-round pick last year, and Chase Claypool.

Claypool has the most intrigue as the former second round pick looked great as a rookie with the Steelers but hasn't been much of a factor the past few years. He has an incredible size that is tough to find at the position and he has shown he has the talent to be a top wide receiver for an offense.

With how competitive this position battle is expected to be, most of the players at this position can't miss out on any opportunities. That starts this week at Buffalo Bills minicamp.
