Post-Draft Roster Analysis – Fullback

You won't see Corey McIntyre doing this very often.

Now that the dust of the 2011 Draft has settled, it’s time to analyze the current state of Buffalo’s roster. We’ll be taking a look at one position at a time. Today: FB.

Players Under Contract (2): Corey McIntyre, Jehuu Caulcrick

Possibly Departing Free Agents: None.

1) Corey McIntyre

2010 stats: 4 carries, 5 yards, 1 TD; 4 catches, 32 yards; 15 tackles

McIntyre will be entering his fourth year with the Bills in 2011, and I think he’ll last for at least a few more. While he’s not really a big part of the offense (as his eight touches in 2010 attest) he’s a serviceable blocking fullback and a very good special teams player.

It’s clear the Buffalo front office is pleased with McIntyre’s work, as he was rewarded with a two-year contract extension in September of 2010 that put him among the league’s highest-paid fullbacks.

It’d be pretty shocking to see McIntyre not listed as Buffalo’s starting fullback on the opening day of the 2011 season.

2) Jehuu Caulcrick

2010 stats: 1 carry, 2 yards

I listed Caulcrick as a running back during my analysis of that position, but he could be a fit here. Caulcrick’s a large man who has played some fullback during his other stops around the league. If McIntyre gets hurt, Caulcrick could get the nod.

In any case, Caulcrick has a shot to stick around as a fourth running back/second fullback, especially in case of an injury.
