3. Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills have one of the best wide receivers in the NFL in Stefon Diggs. The offseason drama between the two sides has threatened to derail any positive momentum the team might have, but there's no denying Diggs' talent.

He's fresh off a 2022 season that saw him finish with 108 catches for 1,429 yards and 11 touchdowns. Diggs is a borderline top-five wide receiver — if he's on the field, there are few that match his production.

The issue starts and ends with the depth the Bilsl have behind Diggs. Gabriel Davis is set to enter the 2023 season as his team's de facto WR1 once again, but it's become increasingly apparent that he's probably better suited for a more complementary role.

Davis is a legitimate red-zone threat who is coming off the most productive season of his career, but drops remain an issue. He dropped a whopping nine passes last season and finished with a lackluster 51.6 percent catch rate.

Behind him, the depth gets even worse. The likes of Trent Sherfield, Khalil Shakir, Deonte Hardy, and fifth-round rookie Justin Shorter do little to strike fear into opposing defenses.

There's a reason the Bills have remained active in the market for DeAndre Hopkins. The Bills desperately need a true WR2 to pair with Diggs.

Unfortunately for Buffalo, unless they find a price that works for both them and Hopkins, they'll be one Diggs injury away from boasting one of the worst wide receiver units in the NFL.

Diggs is a phenomenal player, but the Bills' lack of depth is why they rank third in the AFC East when it comes to the wide receiver position.
