The Buffalo Bills continue to take a very close look at the running back class in this year’s NFL Draft and according to Justin Melo with The Draft Network, the team met virtually with former Arizona State running back Rachaad White.

The Bills are certainly not the only team and Melo did note in his tweet that White has met with several teams virtually. It is interesting to see that the Cleveland Browns had a Top 30 visit with White when considering they have one of the top running back duos in the league in Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt.

After a few years in JUCO, White went to Arizona State University and in 2020 had 571 yards from scrimmage and six total touchdowns in only four games. He continued that strong play this past season and had 1,456 yards from scrimmage and 16 total touchdowns.

Could Rachaad White and Devin Singletary be the running back duo the Buffalo Bills are looking for?

In 2020, the Buffalo Bills drafted Zack Moss in the third round, one year after selecting Devin Singletary in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft. The thought was these two running backs could complement one another with Singletary as an elusive running back while Moss was more of the power back.

However, Moss has struggled in the past two years and at the end of the season, Devin Singletary showed he could shoulder a majority of the workload as a featured running back. The Bills may want to continue that in 2022 and adding Rachaad White could complement that, rather than take away much work.

The reason being is that White is one of the better pass-catching running backs in this year’s draft class. Last season, he finished with 43 receptions and with the Buffalo Bills he is someone that could work third downs and passing situations while Singletary keeps the run game on track with 15-20 carries per game.
