For the second straight year, the Buffalo Bills used their third round pick on a running back with the selection of Zack Moss. The expectation was that Moss would be the power back to compliment Singletary who is more elusive.
After he got past a toe injury that cost him three games early in the season, Moss saw his role grow seemingly on a weekly basis to the point that he was earning more snaps and carries than Singletary by the end of the regular season.
This past year, Moss had 112 carries for 481 rushing yards with an average of 4.3 yards per carry. The rookie was the primary back near the goal line and had four rushing touchdowns, including two in Week 8 against the New England Patriots. He also had 14 receptions for 95 yards and one receiving touchdown.
However, his rookie season ended on a down note as he suffered an ankle injury against the Indianapolis Colts that forced him to miss the last two playoff games. Similar to Singletary, Zack Moss’ role is up in the air but he likely has a slight edge over the veteran.
