Add a receiver to the mix!

With the 128th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills selected wide receiver Gabriel Davis out of the University of Central Florida.

Davis, 6’2” and 216 lbs, made an immediate impact for the Knights, starting 13 games as a true freshman and putting together a 27/391/4 receiving slash. As a sophomore, he was an All-AAC Conference selection with 53 receptions, 815 yards, and seven touchdowns. His stats exploded in 2019, with 72 catches, 1,241 yards and 12 touchdowns, leading him to declare for the NFL Draft.

Davis has standard athleticism for a wide receiver, especially a receiver with plenty of size and length for the position. He ran a 4.54 forty yard dash, had a 35” vertical, and a 10’4” broad jump.

Davis will join the Bills as a backup, learning behind Stefon Diggs, John Brown, and Cole Beasley. He’ll compete for early reps with Isaiah McKenzie and Robert Foster. He projects as a developmental big-play downfield receiver who could step into Brown’s shoes in a year or two.
