2017

The Bills' second-round pick, Jones has an excellent chance for targets right out of the gate, especially with Anquan Boldin abruptly deciding to retire. Jordan Matthews is locked in as a contributor, but the depth chart is otherwise thin, leaving Jones as the likely No. 3 receiver. Jones could even push for the No. 1 outside role, as Matthews is best utilized out of the slot. While the Bills are a run-first team, they lack a designated third-down back or high-volume tight end. At 6-2, 201 with 4.45 40 speed, Jones is fast for a tall receiver and a strong route runner with good hands. He's not the home-run threat of the recently departed Sammy Watkins, but rather a more athletic (133-inch broad jump) possession complement than last year's version (Robert Woods). After notching 158 catches at East Carolina in 2016, Jones could make an immediate impact in a revamped receiving corps.
