The Bills have one of the better receiving backs in football with Fred Jackson. They have one of the most powerful and talented backups in Marshawn Lynch.
But they don’t have any other running backs on the roster, and that’s why Chan Gailey wants to draft one. He has a specific type in mind.
“The guys that are coming out now, there’s a bunch of those 5-9,
185-pound or 195-pound, quick-as-a-cat water bugs that are running
backs-slash-receivers that might give you a little bit of a punch on the
field, maybe make a big play,” Gailey told reporters Tuesday morning.
Gailey used the spread offense in Kansas City and knows how to use versatile, explosive players. Lynch’s future with the team after 2010 remains uncertain, so drafting some depth at the position is on Gailey’s to-do list.
