Predicting the Buffalo Bills 2020 Depth Chart: Tight End
By Daniel Bruce
With a young promising player in Dawson Knox at the position, and a productive veteran Tyler Kroft, it looks like tight end is as strong as its ever been for the Buffalo Bills.
The Buffalo Bills have long struggled with getting production from the tight end position. However, now with a young promising player in Dawson Knox, they could be set at the position for a while.
Knox took over for the injured Tyler Kroft, who was signed in last year’s free agency and was initially brought in to be the starter. After going through a number of injuries to start the year for Kroft, it was actually Knox who solidified himself as the starter. Now Kroft can be a reliable backup at the position and be a safe option for Allen.
With Lee Smith and Tommy Sweeney likely battling for the third position, it will be interesting to see if Sean McDermott leans to the veteran or the young tight end.
Buffalo hasn’t had a capable young tight end in what seems like decades and the best they’ve had in the last decade has been mediocre tight ends like Scott Chandler and Charles Clay. Now with Knox and all of the potential he possesses, the Bills are at a seemingly great position at the spot.
