With the 187th pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills selected Clemson wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud. The Bills finally added a receiver in the draft, waiting until the sixth round to do so with the versatile McCloud.

At 5’10” and 190 pounds, McCloud is most likely to serve as a slot receiver if he is able to break his way into the offensive rotation. At Clemson, McCloud did most of his damage as a punt returner, returning 25 punts for 303 yards and a touchdown. He also tallied 49 receptions for 503 yards and another score as a receiver.

As a kickoff returner, McCloud averaged 31.9 yards per return during his freshman season. In the late rounds of any draft, teams are looking for versatile players, and McCloud certainly fits the bill. His special teams ability most likely appeals to head coach Sean McDermott.

The Bills have one selection remaining, the second-to-last pick in the entire 2018 draft.
