Buffalo Bills Mock Draft: Round 5, Pick 134 – DeWayne McBride, RB, Alabama-Birmingham
Since Devin Singletary’s time with the Buffalo Bills could be coming to an end, it might be time to look for a new running back to have alongside James Cook.
Cook found a way towards the end of the season to turn the page on what started to look like a bad decision of a draft choice.
There were fumbles, as well as a lack of coagulation among the offense. More recently, however, Cook and the Buffalo Bills’ offense has started to click.
The run game is still a part of this offense that doesn’t exist hardly outside of Josh Allen.
That’s a bit of an exaggeration, however, as previously mentioned, Allen finished the season 57 yards behind the first running back on the depth chart: Devin Singletary.
Singeltary’s career with the Buffalo Bills hasn’t been all-too impressive, as Singletary failed to reach 1,000 yards in all four of his seasons with the Bills.
With 88 fewer rushing attempts, James Cook had only 312 fewer yards.
And with that, the Buffalo Bills get DeWayne McBride out of UAB.
The way McBride runs is like he absolutely hates every person coming after him. There’s just so much nastiness in the way he runs a football, that he’d be perfect for the Buffalo Bills.
McBride is a guy who will probably gain some draft stock once the pre-draft process gets closer to finishing, however, seeing him on the board was an immediate draft.
