Buffalo Bills 2020 NFL Draft: Quick reaction grade for Zack Moss
The Buffalo Bills once again get great value with the selection of running back Zack Moss out of Utah.
The Buffalo Bills addressed two key needs with their first two selections by drafting A.J. Epenesa in the second round and then pick Zack Moss out of Utah in the third round.
The Bills needed to find a physical runner to pair with Devin Singletary, who had an excellent season as a rookie last year, and get that with Zack Moss. He is 5’9″ and 223 pounds that doesn’t typically go down on first contact. The low center of gravity, combined with his power is a bad combination for defenders trying to bring him down.

The Bills are getting a running back that was highly productive at Utah with over 4,000 rushing yards and 38 rushing touchdowns over four seasons. He also showed off some hands this past year with 28 receptions which is going to be tough for opposing defensive coordinators.
This means that they can’t assume that when he gets in the game, the Bills are automatically running the ball and he can be a weapon in the passing game.
The Buffalo Bills knew that they needed to find that complimentary back to Devin Singletary and they found that, and more, with Zack Moss. He can come in and get 10-15 touches a game, not take anything away from what Singletary brings, and the Bills now have a dynamic 1-2 punch in the run game to go along with the impressive receiving group they have.
Similar to the A.J. Epenesa pick, considering where they were selecting, the players on the board and the player they got, it is hard to find something negative about this pick.
