The Bills wanted to trade up to draft Moss but couldn’t pull the trigger and fortunately for Bean and company, the other NFL clubs didn’t catch on to who they wanted to target.
In a way, the Bills were probably fortunate that teams didn’t have to give up multiple picks to move up and grab Moss because he would get to Buffalo in the third round. It was a clear need for a team that has wanted to run the ball more but also knew that Devin Singletary would need some support.
The Utah running back probably wasn’t the initial plan by Buffalo considering they were looking at signing Melvin Gordon during the off-season. Instead, they had to go with Plan B and it’s not a bad one considering the team can now ensure that they don’t need Josh Allen to run with the ball more than they would like.
