If the Bills want to make the playoffs next season its pivotal they have an excellent offseason. A golden opportunity to start their offseason off the right way is the 2017 NFL Draft. With the 10th overall pick the Bills should be able to select an impact player on offense or defense. Here are the Bills best options at positions they will look to upgrade the draft.

Corey Davis WR Western Michigan

The Bills desperately need to upgrade the wide receiver position. The 6’3″ 213 pound wide receiver from Western Michigan has the physical and mental tools to be an immediate playmaker for the Bills. Corey Davis was productive and a focal point on his offense through his career at Western Michigan. Davis consistently runs great route, a massive catching radius and is lethal after the catch which is ideal in a West Coast offense. Davis is the NCAA career record holder for receiving yards and touchdowns, which validates his dominance in college football (332 career receptions for 5,285 yards and 52 touchdowns). He had 97 catches for 1,500 yards and 19 touchdowns alone in 2016, yet didn’t win the Biletnikoff Award (that honor went to Oklahoma University‘s Dede Westbrook). Davis would be a great addition to play alongside Sammy Watkins and Marquis Goodwin.

Jamal Adams S LSU

The Bills need a versatile an instinctive defender to play safety next season. Adams is fast and versatile enough to play strong or free safety in the NFL. NFL teams covet that Adams can cover running backs and tight ends, play centerfield, and tackle in the box. Adams had five interceptions and two recovered fumbles over the last two seasons. Adams also was a dynamite special teams star for the Tigers, totaling 21 tackles with no penalties. Coaches at LSU say he might be the best leader LSU has had in years. Adams is an interchangeable safety and a leader which will impact as struggling defense.

Deshaun Watson QB Clemson

The two time Heisman trophy finalist elevated Clemson’s program and led them to a national championship this past season. Watson threw for over 4,000 yards, 35 touchdowns, and ran for over 1,000 yards.Watson could be the Bills starting quarterback if Tyrod Taylor is not resigned. Watson has outstanding athletic ability and great pocket composure. Watson also has all the intangibles that include an explosive and accurate arm.

Mike Williams WR Clemson

Mike Williams was a First Team All-ACC selection after catching 84 passes for 1,171 yards and reached the end zone 10 times this season. Williams has the prototypical physical attributes NFL teams will covet. Williams is 6’3″ 225 pounds and made crucial catches to help Clemson University win the National Championship. Williams has long arms and catches the ball at its highest points. Williams also has adequate speed that can make cornerbacks miss after the catch. Williams can help the Bills receiving core playing alongside fellow Clemson alum Sammy Watkins.
