4. Dalton Kincaid wasn't the sexy pick, but the Bills got it right

When the Bills traded up to draft tight end Dalton Kincaid, all of the first round wide receivers had been taken. A wideout was off the table for that first-round selection. But, Brandon Beane stood by what he said during pre-draft media time and opted to land his offense a playmaker.

Sure, Buffalo already had Dawson Knox. But, what some fans may not realize is that Kincaid fits exactly what the Bills tried to do at times in 2022, which is to run more 12 personnel (two tight end sets).

Kincaid and Knox immediately become one of the top tight end duos in all of football, and both give Buffalo some enticing receiving threats at the position. With those two on the field and garnering attention, it might open things up more for guys like Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis. Let's hope it does so for the latter, especially because we've been waiting on that Davis breakout for two years now.

Kincaid was by far the best tight end in this draft, and can stretch the field like a vintage Zach Ertz was able to do in Philadelphia. He might not have been the shiniest, most exciting pick. But, the Bills definitely upgraded their offense by drafting him. They got it right.
