Another Oregon State alum may be catching passes next season in the National Football League.

Isaiah Hodgins appears to have made the 53-man roster of the Buffalo Bills ahead of his rookie season in the league.

The former Beaver posted a congratulations letter and football from the NFL Player's Association on his snapchat account congratulating him on making the final roster. 

The Bills kept six wide receivers on roster Saturday. Joining Hodgins is Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley, John Brown, Isaiah McKenzie and fellow rookie Gabriel Davis.

Davis and Hodgins are the only wide outs taller than 6 feet and could be used in the redzone. As a junior, Hodgins had 12 redzone targets which produced 12 catches and nine touchdowns.

Earlier this week, the Buffalo Bills tweeted Hodgins making a contested catch from Jake Fromm. 

Buffalo selected Hodgins 207th overall during the 2020 NFL Draft.

The Biltkinoff Award semifinalist had 86 receptions for 1,171 yards and 13 touchdowns as a junior, single-season numbers which rank 5th, 9th, and 2nd in school history, respectively.

Throughout his career, he received 156 targets with only three drops.

The Bills are getting a playmaker that can make big plays downfield and move the sticks as a possession receiver. And he'll get to learn from Stefon Diggs how to get it done at the next level.
