ORCHARD PARK, NY (WKBW) — He's expected to be a contributor and a big part of the Bills offense and Zack Moss is ready to be that and more.

"I definitely enjoy being in this offense," he said. "I'm trying to find my rhythm, find my role in this offense, and ways to help the team this upcoming season."

The rookie, who was taken 86th overall in the 2020 NFL Draft, is finally in Orchard Park and is ready to show what he can do. After rookie mini-camp and OTAs were canceled, Moss had to find a way to learn the Bills offense. He says his girlfriend helped him learn plays and read note cards while they were out in California. He also got in touch with quarterbacks Josh Allen and Matt Barkley.

"We just continued to run through some plays and continue to try and learn this offense so that when we got to this point in the year, we can be at a faster pace," he said.

Similar to Devin Singletary during his rookie season, Moss is expected to contribute right away. He joins an offense that finished sixth in rushing attempts and eighth in rushing yards per game last season.

"I think it's very good for the team to have two guys who can do a lot for this team," Moss said about himself and Singletary. "Keeping guys fresh during the season is very important."

Moss is known as a "bulldozer" who doesn't go down easily, and has the ability to pick up some extra yardage. He's an athlete, in fact during Thursday's interview with media, he mentioned he's able to squat 600 pounds for a few reps. But he's more than that, already showing promise when it comes to being a factor in the passing game [see Matt Bove's tweet below].

"I was able to do a lot of good things in college when it came to catching the ball out of the backfield," he said. "I continue to grow in that aspect of the game so I can be another weapon on offense."
