As it stands, the Bills are going into training camp with a whopping 13 wide receivers on the roster. Atop the list, obviously, is Stefon Diggs, who saw his fair share of drama over the past month or two. But, things appear to be settled and Diggs will be there when it matters.

Buffalo also has Gabe Davis going into a contract year, so fans are hopeful he finally busts loose in a consistent manner. From there, it's kind of a myriad of different receivers making up the rest of the guys likely making the cut.

In the slot should end up being Trent Sherfield, who was signed this offseason. Last year's fifth-round pick, Khalil Shakir, should have no problem earning a spot either. Then, there's another 2023 free agent signing, Deonte Harty, who gives the Bills five wideouts.

Buffalo drafted Justin Shorter in the fifth round, this year, as well. So, that gives the team six receivers. After Shorter, there are four more veterans and three undrafted rookies sitting on the depth chart. One of those veterans, KeeSean Johnson, hasn't played NFL football since 2020. It's pretty easy to see why he has no shot at making the final roster.
