2016 NFL Draft results: Kolby Listenbee to Buffalo Bills at No. 192 overall

The Bills add another speedster to their wide receiver depth chart

With the No. 192 overall pick in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills have selected Kolby Listenbee, a wide receiver out of TCU.

Listenbee, who made a pre-draft visit with the Bills, is a tantalizing athlete coming off of two solid seasons' worth of production as a starter with the Horned Frogs playing opposite of first-round pick Josh Doctson. He's a 6'0", 197-pound wideout with excellent straight-line speed (4.39 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the Combine) and explosion (10'9" in the broad jump) that can win jump balls (35.5-inch vertical jump). In his four-year career at TCU, Listenbee caught 74 passes for 1,432 yards (that's 19.4 yards per reception) and nine touchdowns.

The Bills find themselves in a spaghetti-at-the-wall situation at wide receiver, where they're accumulating talented prospects in an effort to find a second or third contributor at the position, and Listenbee has the physical traits to factor into that race, if not right away. At minimum, he'll give the Bills some deep-ball insurance if Marquise Goodwin's Olympic career takes off this summer. Ironically, Listenbee was also a track star at TCU, as a four-time All-American sprinter.

Buffalo has one more pick to make in this draft, coming in at No. 218 overall. Stay tuned.
