The Bills got a fantastic value pick, taking Central Arkansas wideout Dez Lewis with the 17th pick of the final round of the draft. Lewis was projected by many analysts to go in the fourth or fifth rounds.

Lewis is now the tallest receiver on the Bills' roster. He stands at 6'4" and runs a 4.46 40, which is pretty remarkable for his size. The most plausible reason for his fall was his level of competition-- many teams were likely skeptical of drafting a FCS receiver who won't be able to use his size to bully defensive backs like he did in college. But Lewis certainly has the physical tools to compete in the NFL.
