BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – First the Bills added youth to their defensive end mix and then they added a running back to pair with Devin Singletary drafting Utah’s Zack Moss with the 86th overall pick in the third round.

Coming into the draft, the Bills didn’t really have any glaring holes or needs that had to fill considering Brandon Beane addressed many positions in free agency and the offseason. But this was an area they certainly needed help in because after Singletary, they only had T.J. Yeldon and Christian Wade on the practice squad. Taiwan Jones was brought in primary for help on special teams.

Moss elected to go back to Utah for his senior season and boy did it pay off as he shattered not one, not two but six school records.

Last season, Moss became the new recorder holder in total carries, total rushing yards, career 100-yard rushing games, rushing touchdowns, all-purpose plays and total touchdowns.

Moss, 22, ran for 1,416 yards and 15 touchdowns as a senior for the Utes in 2019. He was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year and added nearly 400 yards receiving and two receiving touchdowns.

The NFL is also very familiar in the Moss family as Zack is cousins with Santana Moss and Sinorice Moss.
