The Buffalo Bills have selected wide receiver Gabriel Davis with the No. 128 pick in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Davis played in 38 games at UCF and produced 2,447 receiving yards and 23 touchdowns. His 23 receiving touchdown rank second in school history.

Davis, 21, is a native of Sanford, FL. He is 6-2 and 210 pounds.

1. TRAINED WITH ZACK MOSS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

Before returning to his hometown in Central Florida to watch the draft, Davis spent three months training for the draft with a group of NFL prospects, including Buffalo's second round draft pick Zack Moss.

And by working out, we mean work. He told the Orlando Sentinel about his daily workout regimen in an interview two weeks ago.

"I wake up in the morning, get into the weight room and get in a lift and then I get on the field around 11 to noon and just do a lot of agility and speed work," Davis said. "A lot of conditioning and then at night, I like to go catch some balls either in the gym or on the field — all different types of things to be ready to compete at the next level."

2. VERTICAL STRETCH THREAT

Davis brings size and another deep threat to Buffalo's wide receiving corps. NFL Network Draft Analyst Daniel Jeremiah describes him as a "pure, vertical stretch wide receiver. Everything he does is about getting down the field."

Davis finished with 152 receptions with 23 touchdowns in three years at Central Florida. And he started out fast, with 27 catches and four touchdowns in his freshman year, Central Florida's unbeaten 13-0 season.

3. DROPPED DOWN TO FOURTH ROUND?

Draft Analyst Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network thought Davis could be a second-round pick earlier in 2019. His size and good hands were the reasons why.

"I love Gabe Davis. [I] graded him as a second-round pick before the season began," Pauline said. "[He's a] big, game-controlling receiver with terrific hands. He could be a dominant No. 2 at the next level. [He's] not super-fast. [He's a] late second to early third-round pick."
