NFL Mock Draft: The Bills select Devontez Walker of North Carolina and give Josh Allen another wide receiver.

There is a good chance Buffalo will add depth to its receiving corps via the draft this April in the 2024 NFL Draft, as the Bills have selected at least one receiver in each of the previous four drafts. This is because Gabe Davis is expected to test free agency and the receiving room has shown inconsistent play toward the end of the season, especially from star receiver Stefon Diggs.

And the Bills are predicted to do just that at No. 28 overall in a recent mock draft from CBS Sports.

According to the website, Buffalo will choose receiver Devontez Walker of North Carolina with their first-round pick. Walker would join Diggs, Khalil Shakir, and Justin Shorter, a second-year pass-catcher, in the receiving room, should Davis decide to sign with another team.

“Walker wasn’t cleared to play by the NCAA until deep into the season, and when he played, he rocked. The former Kent State standout caught 41 passes for 699 yards and seven scores in eight games, according to CBS Sports.

Walker totaled 20 touchdowns and 1,796 yards of offense throughout his time in college. Playmaker with an eye for the end zone, Walker should be able to contribute for the Bills as a WR3 in his rookie campaign, much like Dalton Kincaid became Allen’s go-to target in the latter part of the season. That’s the best case scenario for Buffalo, of course.
