The Buffalo Bills are the next team on the clock for the Pride Of Detroit Community Mock Draft. Mort Neff is the acting general manager for the Bills and with the 10th pick in the draft, he has selected wide receiver Corey Davis out of Western Michigan. Below is his rationale for the pick:

We've seen defense dominate the first nine picks of POD's glorious annual mock draft, and the Buffalo Bills couldn't be happier. Since Buffalo's biggest draft need is a receiving threat to pair with Sammy Watkins, my pick came down to three choices... and I felt like a kid in a candy store.

Mike Williams WR Clemson

O.J. Howard TE Alabama

Corey Davis WR Western Michigan

Honestly, you could flip a coin to make this choice because any one of them would be a great pick for the Bills, in my opinion. I picked Corey Davis and here's why:

Measuring out at 6-foot-3 and 209 pounds, Corey Davis is considered the most complete, polished and pro ready WR prospect in the draft. On tape, his impeccable route running, fluid athleticism and strong hands are obvious, but his strongest trait may be his dynamic ability to produce yards after the catch. This, more than anything, makes him a perfect fit in Buffalo's west coast offense. Pairing Corey Davis with Sammy Watkins should also allow Watkins to do what Watkins does best: wreak havoc and torment DB's in single coverage.

Personality-wise Davis exhibits a fiery competitiveness and a natural alpha attitude. He had outstanding college production for four straight years garnering first-team All-American honors in 2016 by ranking in the top 10 in three major receiving categories- 97 catches (eighth), 1,500 yards (seventh),and 19 touchdowns (first).
