Jones is listed as the starter on the Buffalo Bills depth chart with both Hagan and Nelson as primary backups at the wide receiver position.
This is far from etched in stone, as teams must report a depth chart throughout the preseason. In reality it is mostly procedural at this point.
With that in mind, things can definitely change during the final week of the preseason.
Jones has impressed Bills head coach Chan Gailey thus far in training camp; he said of Jones, "He's had a very good camp. He looks quicker and faster than I remember him last year." The third-year receiver recorded just 23 receptions and one touchdown in eight games last season.
This left the Bills with a void opposite Steve Johnson—a void they were unable to fill via free agency after flirting with Robert Meachem, among others.
Derek Hagan, who was a standout for the Oakland Raiders in training camp last year, was brought in as an under-the-radar free agent in the offseason. He has also impressed the Bills this summer. That being said, he has just one catch in six targets during the preseason.
The real wild card here is rookie third-round pick T.J. Graham from North Carolina State. He has caught eight passes for over 130 yards in three preseason games. The real eye-opening statistic as it relates to Graham is the fact that he has nabbed over 60 percent of the passes thrown his way.
It seems that Jones has the inside track to retain the starting job opposite of Johnson. I can, however, envision a scenario where Graham takes that spot from him in rather short order. Either way, you can expect Buffalo to trot out a ton of different receivers as the season gets going. The Bills have the depth, however unproven it might be.
