CBS Sports give Bills surprise playmaker in Round 1

The Buffalo Bills might quickly enter the instructions of a playmaker for their offense at the 2023 NFL draft.

But CBS Sports cleans off a name that captures attention.

When the word “playmaker” is thrown out there concerning the Bills, many believe pass receiver. If not there, possibly the mind goes to Buffalo’s backfield.

What about tight end? That’s the case made. The name sent out to the Bills at the No. 27 total choice in the preliminary of the upcoming draft is Notre Dame’s Michael Mayer.

By now you’re considering Dawson Knox.

Knox has actually had his reasonable share of ups and downs in the NFL. Look no even more than last season. He began bad, however completed the year strong as he scored in five-straight trips.

But this choice may not have to do with an absence of contributions from Knox.

Last offseason, Buffalo had a look at possibly leaning on their tight ends more. The group signed OJ Howard, however it didn’t work out. He was cut at the end of training school.

In a situation where Buffalo draft Mayer, they get their hands on the leading tight end possibility in the 2023 draft as he’s the very first of the board in CBS Sports’ mock.

Teaming him up with Knox might have an appealing causal sequence to the receiver space, too.

Mayer, a 6-foot-4 junior created appealing back-to-back seasons for the Fighting Irish. He went beyond 67 receptions and had at least 800 backyards the previous 2 seasons. In overall, he taped 18 goals in his college profession also.

Here’s how CBS Sports breaks down the choice:

Michael Mayer is more Gronk than Kelce, however that’s not a bad thing. And in Buffalo, he’ll get a lot of opportunities.
