Breaking News: Buffalo Bills Confirm Perfect Replacement For Gabe Davis

NFL Mock Draft: LSU’s Brian Thomas Jr. is the Bills’ selection to replace wide out Gabe Davis.
By selecting an LSU receiver with the most number of touchdown catches in the NCAA in 2023 with their first-round draft pick, the Buffalo Bills may try to bolster their offensive weaponry.
To complement WR1 Stefon Diggs, the Buffalo Bills need a clear-cut No. 2 receiver, and the most practical way to get one this offseason is probably through the NFL Draft.

Even in the improbable event that Gabe Davis decides to resign, Buffalo’s offense will gain by having more weapons in the receiving corps. For this reason, the most recent forecast from Field Yates of ESPN makes sense.

Brian Thomas Jr., a receiver from LSU, is selected by the Bills at number 28 overall in Yates’ mock draft. Under the suggested scenario, Buffalo would pass on selecting Keon Coleman of Florida State and choose Thomas as the fourth receiver taken in the first round, behind Marvin Harrison Jr. of Ohio State, Malik Nabers of LSU, and Rome Odunze of Washington, all of whom were selected in the Top 7.

Thomas’s deadly combination of size and speed makes him seem like a good match for the Bills. Although last year’s first-round pick and tight end Dalton Kincaid (73 catches) did a good job filling the “Swole” Beasley role, the Bills offense still lacks a pass-catcher who can spread the field outside and take use of quarterback Josh Allen’s explosive arm.

In an ideal world, Buffalo’s perimeter players would be quick enough and large enough to put Diggs up in the slot occasionally. Thomas could turn out to be “that guy.”

Thomas, a 6-4 prospect, has one of the broader catch radii among draft prospects, and his quickness lets him get away from opponents. Over three seasons, he participated in 38 games for LSU. Thomas made 13 appearances and recorded a national-high 17 touchdown receptions, securing a full-time starting position for 2023. 68 catches for 1,177 yards was his total.
