According to an analyst on Fox Sports, the Buffalo Bills should be able to find value at running back in second round.
The Buffalo Bills won’t have a first round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft with that pick going to the Minnesota Vikings as part of the Stefon Diggs trade. However, they could still find a great offensive playmaker in the second round, according to Charles Davis of Fox Sports.
Davis was recently on WGR550 AM, and Maddy Glab tweeted out a quote from Davis about the running back position and where the Bills could go with their pick at 54.
Davis does call out the Buffalo Bills two biggest needs at this point, less than two weeks out from the NFL Draft which is defensive end and running back.
The Bills did add Mario Addison in free agency but at 33 years of age, he is not a long term answer, and the Bills will need to add some youth. As Davis notes though, the top edge rushers are going to be long gone by the time they pick at 54.
However, the running back position is something that has been devalued over the past 10 years which pushes some excellent running backs down teams draft boards. It seems that the consensus top running backs in this class is D’Andre Swift, Jonathan Taylor, J.K. Dobbins and Clyde Edwards-Helaire.
It wouldn’t be surprising when the Buffalo Bills are on the clock that two, or even three of those running backs were still available. The front office could make one of these running backs their pick and really solidify a position with young talent.
The combination of Devin Singletary with any of these backs would give this offense a formidable combination and also be an upgrade over the depth they currently have with T.J. Yeldon, Taiwan Jones and Christian Wade.
