  • According to Adam Levitan, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Zay Jones appears have already solidified himself as the team’s no. 2 wide receiver. Jones was drafted in the second round of this year’s draft and joins a rather thin group of wide receivers. His ability to play both outside and inside has made it hard for him to come off the field.
  • In a record-setting 2016 season at East Carolina in which Jones broke the FBS record for receptions in a season with 158, he ranked third among draft-eligible wide receivers with a 91.0 overall grade.
  • Jones flashed a well-rounded skill set while playing in college, ranking inside the top-25 in yards per route run (2.96), drop rate (3.66), deep pass receptions (12), and deep receiving yards (429). But perhaps his most notable work came from the slot, where he ranked third in the FBS in yards per route run at 3.41 and eighth in slot receptions with 64.
