ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — The Bills took another wide receiver in the draft, selecting Isaiah Hodgins from Oregon State with the 207th overall pick.

Hodgins is the second receiver the Bills took in the draft, after selecting Gabe Davis from UCF in the 4th round.

Hodgins is no stranger to the NFL. His father James had an eight-year career, playing with the Rams, Cardinals, and Jets. Jams was a fullback and won Super Bowl XXXIV with the Rams. He finished his career with three receiving touchdowns and one rushing touchdown.
From what Isaiah Hodgins has seen of Josh Allen, Hodgins is impressed. He says he seems like a leader and loved the emotion he showed last year in the playoffs.
