Predicting the Buffalo Bills 2020 Depth Chart: Tight End
By Daniel Bruce
Practice Squad/Cut: Jason Croom
The converted wide receiver out of Tennessee was a contributor at the tight end position in 2018, where he played in 15 games, starting 3 of them.
Jason Croom produced 22 catches for 259 yards and a touchdown which was decent production for the backup to Charles Clay during that season. Having a pretty significant role, playing 37% of the offensive snaps, Croom showed flashes of what he could be in the NFL.
Last year didn’t go as planned and he was placed on the IR before the season started. Croom didn’t appear in one game, and with the rise of Dawson Knox, the former Tennessee Volunteer looks to be between a rock and a hard place. Now in 2020, undoubtedly behind Knox and Kroft, and not being a blocking tight end, the chances of him making the roster are slim to none.
Practice Squad: Nate Becker
After being an undrafted free agent in 2019, Becker spent the whole season on Buffalo’s practice squad, and was signed to a futures contract in January. With basically no chance at the roster, Becker will have to hope for a spot on the practice squad.
