Bills drafted Zack Moss after a Combine interview that stood out

The 15-minute interviews that players and teams do at the NFL Scouting Combine turned out to be a bigger deal than usual this year, as the coronavirus pandemic shut down player visits shortly after the Combine. And in the case of Bills rookie Zack Moss, the interview made a very big difference.

The Bills have released some behind the scenes footage of their draft preparation, and it shows the team being particularly impressed with running back Zack Moss, who was asked in the interview if there’s anything he dislikes about football.

Nothing,” Moss said, via Syracuse.com. “You gotta take everything with gratitude, you know what I mean? I thought the game was pretty much ripped away from me. You know, I tore my meniscus. I missed the last five games of my junior year and that was really hard for me.”

Bills General Manager Brandon Beane liked that.

“Man, just like that,” Beane said. “Just like our lives. Look at what’s going on in our world right now? Healthy today to being in bad shape tomorrow. I thought Zack’s answer was great. ‘Man, I appreciate everyday I’m able to put my helmet on and be with my teammates.’”

Obviously the interview wasn’t the only thing the Bills liked about Moss, who was the 2019 Pac-12 offensive player of the year. But the right answers at a job interview can’t hurt.

  1. I bet if you talked to all 32 teams and asked about every player they drafted, they’d all tell you they liked the kid’s interview. I mean, these kids didn’t have anything else to do except prepare for phone interviews.

  2. endless stories every year after the draft . how kids over came all kinds of issues. as a Browns fan at least a couple of the Draft or UDFA players have stories like this. they get there 15 min before most are out of the game with in a yr or 2.

  3. Boy, the Bills get fooled by words utter by people easily. No wonder they are in the bottom every year.

  4. AFC Offensive Rookie of the Year. Book It

    Not with Singletary there. He wont get enough touches. Besides, I dont believe they give out a conference award anymore, its a league award now.

  5. Kid: I love football. Its my entire life
    Team: we love his dedication to the game. We GOTTA draft him.

    Kid: I donate some of my time to public service. I also have a few interests outside of football to keep my mind fresh.
    Team: we love how mature and diversified he is. We GOTTA draft him.

  6. Great draft pick by Beane. Now Moss has to come in and earn playing time just like Singletary did last season.

    Unless if you’re Myron Rolle, whose D coordinator at Florida State told him he spent too much time studying… Class A program!

    He would start at any position on the Raiders Joe, including QB

  9. I know it may seem weird to you all that I have 17 user names to bash the Bills, who made the playoffs again last year after my Raider team again didn’t, and choked at the end of the season in the process.

    Also, you may find it weird that I rip on Josh Allen, who is already better than Derek Carr and comes at a fraction of the price. But I’ll do that too because, reasons.
