The Buffalo Bills made some big changes at the running back position over the past year and in fact, only one running back is still on the roster. That running back is James Cook, who the Bills took in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Over the past year, the Bills have traded away Zack Moss in a move that brought them Nyheim Hines and signed Damien Harris, away from their AFC East rival, as well as Latavius Murray. They made these moves to replace Devin Singletary, who left in free agency to join the Houston Texans.

However, the Bills weren't the only team in the AFC East to make notable changes and it is now time to rank each running back room in the division from worst to first.

4) Miami Dolphins

Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson Jr., De'Von Achane, Myles Gaskin

The margin between the fourth and first team isn't really that wide and it wouldn't be surprising to see any of these teams emerge as the best by the end of the season. However, starting off these rankings are the Miami Dolphins with Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. returning for their second season with the team.

These two running backs combined for almost 1,300 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns but the wild card is De'Von Achane, who was a third round pick by the Dolphins. The rookie out of Texas A&M has incredible speed and is a home run threat but is pretty small at 5'8" and 188 pounds.

The Dolphins have three running backs who can break off big runs at a moment's notice but also could end up struggling behind a poor offensive line. The lack of size and having a balanced running back room is what holds them in the fourth spot.
