Dalton Kincaid - Tight End

Dalton Kincaid was the Bills' first-round selection, trading up to make him the 25th selection of the draft. Many fans were hoping for a wide receiver at this spot in the draft and had some of the options fallen to the Bills, maybe they would have gone that way but when Kincaid was still there at 25, Brandon Beane made the move and grabbed him. Kincaid has more than proven his worth as the 25th overall pick.

He's already set the Bills' record for receptions and yards by a rookie tight end, as well as receptions for a rookie, regardless of position and also the record for most receptions by any tight end in any season. He finished his first NFL regular season with 73 receptions on 91 targets, 673 yards, and two touchdowns. The receptions are the fourth most by a rookie tight end in league history and he finished top ten in both yards and receptions by a tight end this season.
