The Buffalo Bills had a busy NFL draft last week, selecting 10 rookies to join their roster. But the work doesn't stop there, as their scouts turn their page and look toward the most intriguing prospects in the 2025 NFL draft.

Most importantly, which prospects could be a fit for the Bills.

While things will certainly change ahead of next year's draft, here are a few players whose names could be called when the Bills take center stage during the first round in Green Bay next April.

Emeka Egbuka — Wide Receiver, Ohio State

I understand that Buffalo just selected a wide receiver with their first pick last week, but in today's game, especially with Josh Allen as their franchise quarterback, the Bills can afford to have too many pass catchers.

While playing under the shadow of Marvin Harrison Jr., dealing with a nagging ankle injury, and battling some bad quarterback play, Egbuka had a disappointing season for Ohio State in 2023. After recording 1,238 scrimmage yards and 12 total touchdowns in 2022, Egbuka followed that up with only 540 scrimmage yards and 4 total touchdowns last year.

As a result, he decided not to declare for the 2024 NFL draft, despite having the tools to be a first-round selection.

At 6'1", 206 pounds, Egbuka's game is elevated by his unique blend of size and speed. With a reported 40-yard dash time in the 4.3-second range, Egbuka has the chance to explode without Harrison Jr. in his corner in 2025.

If he's available at the end of round one in 2025, and the Bills retooled receiver room doesn't show flashes of greatness this season, he could stand as a legitimate option for Buffalo.
