The final position that has great long term stability is at tight end. The Buffalo Bills last year drafted two tight ends with Dawson Knox out of Ole Miss in the third round and then Tommy Sweeney in the seventh round out of Boston College.
During last year’s training camp, the Bills were hit hard by injuries at the position which created an opportunity for Sweeney and he certainly has the talent to fill the role as the second option at the tight end position in future years.
However, the position really hinges on Dawson Knox and whether he can develop into that top tight end for this offense. He has tremendous physical gifts for a tight end and can create mismatches for this offense. He didn’t have a lot of experience after his time at Ole Miss and will need to learn the position more to reach that full potential.
These two players though give the Buffalo Bills a great foundation that really the only piece missing is a blocking tight end that could take over for Lee Smith. This could be Nate Becker, who spent last year on the practice squad and will most likely be released but could return to the practice squad if he remains with the Buffalo Bills.
