ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WKBW) — In each of the last seven NFL Drafts, at least one running back has gone in the first round. Despite the pass-happy approach that some of the league’s best have leaned into, including the Buffalo Bills, teams still value a good backfield weapon.
Iowa State’s Breece Hall demonstrated plenty of ability for the Cyclones in each of the last two seasons. He put up back-to-back campaigns of over 1,400 yards and at least 20 touchdowns while also being a threat in the passing game.
“I always say I’m slow to [the hole], and fast through,” Hall said. “I feel like that’s what makes me different from a lot of backs. I’m really patient.”
Devin Singletary’s late breakout during the 2021 season still warrants a chance to be the lead back for Buffalo in 2022. But Singletary will be in the final year of his rookie deal with the Bills.
The NFL Draft begins at 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 28th on 7ABC. You can join the 7 Sports team for a special edition of Leading the Charge at 7:30 p.m. before the first round.
