Najee Harris NFL Draft photo
Only five teams rushed less often than the Bills in 2020. In the bottom 7 teams, you find the Super Bowl winner (TB), the runner-up (KC), the team that kicked us out last year (HOU). Obviously, being one-dimensional isn't as bad as it used to be. I don't think it's the plan, however.

Since the Bye, including playoffs, Josh Allen was our top rusher 6 of 13 times, Singletary 5, and Moss and Yeldon 1 each. Our four RBs combined for 1301 yards this year. Najee Harris had 1733, and led the SEC in Yards From Scrimmage, Rushing TDs (26), and put up 19.8 YPC through the air. Najee is the fastest of the over-230 RBs: 4.4 speed at 230 pounds. Harris had the second-most Missed Tackles/Touch since 2018 (min 250 rushes). Number 2 in that time span was Zack Moss, and Number 2 in 2019 was Devin Singletary!

Pat Freiermuth NFL Draft photo
The Bills top TE, Dawson Knox, was 33rd in the league in fantasy football points scored in 2020, and we're not going to let that happen again. The Bills need a Gronk. I'd start with Pat Freiermuth, whose nickname is ..."Baby Gronk". PFF loves Freiermuth's "vise-grip hands, barn-door catch radius, and NFL-caliber inline blocking", and that pops on film. I've seen the Bills run this play before. This Nittany Lion was responsible for .64 TDs per game, tops in the scouted class.

The Bills scouts sniffed around Terry Pegula's alma mater more than once. DL1T Marvin Wilson (#60 pick), LB Jabril Cox, EDGE Patrick Jones II, and DL1T Tyler Shelvin are also getting hard looks.

BILLS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
