Brian Thomas Jr - LSU

We've talked a ton about Brian Thomas Jr., and he's been mocked to the Bills on several occasions but after a stellar NFL Combine performance, Buffalo would likely need to execute a draft day trade to move up for Thomas. I'm not opposed to such a move, but given where the team is right now, I would prefer Buffalo stay put at 28, draft the best available receiver, or move back a few spots and still get a solid, potentially elite receiver.

This wide receiver class is exceptionally deep and I think that is part of why the Bills felt comfortable making this move now. They will have an opportunity to fill out the receiver room with excellent talent through the draft, whichday-one may not be as deep next year. But Thomas has outstanding athleticism, speed, and size. He could potentially step onto the field as a day one starter and fill that void, but despite the recent rookie success, it's still a lot to ask of a rookie from the start.
