Since being drafted in 2020, Gabe Davis has been forced to sit behind some veteran Wide Receivers like John Brown, Cole Beasley, and Emmanuel Sanders. However, that might not be a bad thing, considering he’s been able to hone his craft. With Beasley and Sanders no longer in Buffalo, Davis will have every opportunity to cement himself as WR2. Buffalo Bills fans really got an idea of how good Davis can be in the Divisional Round of the 2021 playoffs against the Kansas City Chiefs. So, will we see an All-Pro season from Gabe Davis?
After that game, HC Sean McDermott had high praise for Davis.

While the Bills have seen flashes of what he could be, Davis hasn’t had the opportunity to put it together consistently just yet. Davis was used as a deep threat early and often in his career. However, last year, he showed he can excel on intermediate routes. All six of his TDs last season came on such passes, which is tied for third-best among WRs.
His Work Ethic
Davis has been in the weight room a lot this off-season, bulking up to 227 lbs, up 17 pounds from his listed weight.
“He’s bigger, faster, stronger… He’s put on muscle. People say that’s too big, but he’s 23 years old. He’s just growing into his natural body. You’re going to see a big receiver.”Bert Whigham, Davis’ personal trainer, on Davis’ weight gain (Courtesy of Doug Kyed/PFF)
Sounds like a player who’s committed to this offense and winning football games. If that’s the case, the Buffalo Bills could have their very own DK Metcalf or AJ Brown at receiver.
2022 Stat Prediction
