With their seventh-round pick (No. 234 overall) in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills have selected wide receiver Dezmin Lewis out of Central Arkansas.

If Lewis' name rings a bell to you, you probably saw him on SportsCenter making this ridiculous catch last season.

Lewis ended his four-year career at Central Arkansas with 197 receptions, 2,668 receiving yards, and 24 touchdowns. In Buffalo, he brings a dimension to Buffalo's receiving corps that it lacked: namely, size. Lewis is just under 6'4", weighs in at 214 pounds, and has go-up-and-get-it ability with a 33.5-inch vertical leap. He clocked in with a 4.58-second 40-yard dash at the Combine (a figure he dropped to 4.46 seconds at his pro day).

Buffalo's receiving corps is in pretty good shape; Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, and Percy Harvin will see the lion's share of the snaps, and special teamers Marcus Easley and Chris Hogan have strong cases for roster inclusion, as well. Lewis will compete with the likes of Marquise Goodwin, plus the special teamers, for a roster spot, and at bare minimum, he'll end up being a sensible addition to the team's practice squad this year.

The Bills have now used all six of their draft picks, so we're moving on to undrafted free agent signings. What do you think of the Lewis pick specifically?
