These are running backs that the Buffalo Bills should target in each round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
The Buffalo Bills don’t have many pressing needs entering the NFL Draft at the end of the month but one that could be a higher priority is running back. At the top of the depth chart is Devin Singletary, who provided a big boost to this offense as a rookie last year.
Singletary finished the year with 775 rushing yards, 194 receiving yards and four touchdowns total. The 969 total yards from scrimmage was the highest total a rookie has had for the Bills dating all the way back to 2007, when Marshawn Lynch broke the 1,000 yard mark.
The concern at the position isn’t necessarily Singletary but rather the depth behind him. The Bills did not bring back veteran Frank Gore, leaving the only backs on the roster as T.J. Yeldon, Taiwan Jones and Christian Wade.
Yeldon will be entering his sixth year in the league but has only broken 500 rushing yards once, which was his rookie season with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Taiwan Jones is expected to contribute more on special teams and Christian Wade, who looked great in preseason, is still really an unknown as he transitions to football from rugby.
This is why it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Buffalo Bills come away with a running back in the NFL Draft. These would be the best options for the Bills based on the round the running backs are expected to be drafted.
