The Buffalo Bills have seven picks on Day 3 and start the day with the selection of running back Ray Davis out of Kentucky. He played for three schools in college as he started with Temple and played two seasons there before transferring to Vanderbilt and played two seasons there. This past season was his final year in college and he played one season for the Wildcats.

In total, he had 746 rushing attempts for 3,626 rushing yards with 29 rushing touchdowns while also recording 94 receptions, including 62 in just the past two seasons. He is an older player as he will be turning 25 during the 2024 season but could make an impact as a rookie.

Updated depth chart at running back for the Buffalo Bills after selecting Ray Davis

Starter: James Cook

Backups: Ty Johnson, Ray Davis

The selection of Ray Davis doesn't change the depth chart that much as this was likely always going to be a running back by committee with James Cook leading the way. The Bills drafted James Cook in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft and after a limited role as a rookie really broke out last year.

In addition to Cook, Ty Johnson also played very well in this offense, particularly later in the season and after Joe Brady took over as the offensive coordinator. He should be continue to see 5-10 touches every game.

Meanwhile, Ray Davis should also get a chance to play but his role is going to be more as the short-yardage back. He runs with really good power and will be on the field on 3rd and short and goal line situations but with his pass-catching ability, it will keep defenses honest and not allow them to sell out on the run.
