Buffalo Bills remain at 28th overall: Adonai Mitchell

If the Buffalo Bills remain at 28th overall, it came down to two wide receivers and both were former teammates. While Ladd McConkey is going to be a good wide receiver, he doesn't fit really well with the rest of the position when considering the Bills already have Curtis Samuel and Khalil Shakir.

McConkey would bring a similar skill set and the Bills need someone with speed, size, or both. Adonai Mitchell certainly has his questions but physically he checks those boxes.

Mitchell spent two seasons at Georgia before transferring to Texas this past season. It was clearly the right choice as he had his best season with 55 receptions, 845 receiving yards, and 11 touchdowns. The biggest concern with Mitchell seems to be that effort is not always consistent but if the Bills can improve that, this would be a great pick late in the first round.

Similar to Brian Thomas Jr., he has a great combination of size and speed at 6'2" and 205 pounds. Adonai Mitchell is far from a finished product but the potential is there that he could be one of the best wide receivers from this draft class if everything comes together.
