Bills General Manager Brandon Beane held a Zoom conference call with local reporters Tuesday, saying, "I don’t think either one of our backs are home run hitters, so is there an elite trait that this [potential rookie back] has and says, ‘Man, he’s got something we don’t have.’ That’s probably the conversation, versus, ‘OK, are we going to take the same type of back as Devin, are we gonna take the same type of back as Zack? Because even those two guys have different skill sets.” (NewYorkUpstate.com)
Beane added, "I’m not going into this draft going, ‘Man we got to find some back here in the top few rounds or anything like that.'" If the Bills add a home run hitter at back, though, Josh Allen's rushing touchdowns could decrease. The rookie back would be able to score from further out, potentially decreasing Red Zone trips. In this scenario, we'll have to wait until training camp to gauge if one back has a path to be the clear-cut dominator of the team's backfield touches, though.
