The reactions on Twitter was once again positive with the Buffalo Bills selection of Zack Moss out of Utah in the third round.
The Buffalo Bills didn’t have a first round pick, however they may more than made up for it on Day 2. They used their first pick on Friday night to select A.J. Epenesa and followed it up with the pick of Zack Moss in the third round.
Moss was a highly productive running back at Utah and is small in stature at 5’9″ and 222 pounds but is a powerful back. He is one that is not afraid of contact and in an interview after being selected said he likes to make defenders have to make a “business decision”.
While he has incredible power that allows him to run through tackles, he also has some wiggle in his game. Pro Football Focus described Moss as a back who “has been consistently elusive to a level we’ve never quite seen before.”
The addition of Moss to the backfield with Devin Singletary gives this offense an incredible 1-2 punch at the running back position. Both are good receivers out of the backfield while Singletary is more of the home run hitter while Moss is more of that power, between the tackles back.
The one thing that really sets this pick apart is that Zack Moss could step in, if the need arises, and be the team’s featured back because of his skill set. The Buffalo Bills not only have a player that compliments Singletary but is an insurance policy if Singletary misses extended playing time.
