Predicting the Buffalo Bills 2020 Depth Chart: Running Back
By Daniel Bruce
Backup: Zack Moss
This seasons third-round selection of the Buffalo Bills was brought in to form an exciting duo alongside Singletary. Spending another Day 2 pick on a running back, the Bills now have a stable investment over the next few years at the position.
The star out of Utah had a great collegiate career where he had over 1,000 yards in each of his last three seasons. Moss was a touchdown machine, accumulating 36 touchdowns on the ground through those seasons.
Moss is the perfect compliment to Singletary, he brings a ton of power and is an intimidating presence for defenders especially when he reaches the second level. Despite running poor at the combine with a 4.65 40-yard dash, he has more straight line speed than Singletary, but doesn’t play with the burst and elusiveness of his counterpart.
Moss shows some elusiveness in the backfield at times, above he runs over a tackler then proceeds to show off his deceptive speed for the 91-yard touchdown run.
Look for Moss to take on the role Frank Gore played late in the season, running in a lot of 21 and 22 personnel against stacked boxes. Moss can also be relied on as a receiver unlike Gore, so defenses will be guessing when he steps on the field, unlike when the veteran back played for the Bills last season.
