Kiper: Bills got a steal in Moss


ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper, Jr. believes the Buffalo Bills got tremendous value when they selected running back Zack Moss in the third round of last month’s NFL Draft, but called another one of their picks the most “underrated” for the team.

Appearing on the network’s First Draft podcast with Chris Sprow, Kiper was asked to give his most underrated draft pick for all 32 teams. When it came time for the Bills, Kiper mentioned both Moss and wide receiver Isaiah Hodgins, who the team took in the sixth round.

“I think Isaiah Hodgins gives them that length at wide receiver that Josh [Allen] likes,” Kiper said of the Oregon State product. "Throw it up and let him go get it.”  

But the draft analyst couldn’t stop gushing about Moss.  

“We thought he was a second [round pick],” Kiper said of the Utah running back. “He certainly has all the production. He’s got the versatility. In the third round last year, they got Devin Singletary out of Florida Atlantic, who had a really good rookie year. He was a key element in that offense for Josh Allen. Really was a key to them getting as far as they got. I think [Moss] will be a really good one-two punch with Singletary. I like the sixth round pick Hodgins, but I do think Moss in the third round was a steal by about a round. I thought he should have gone in the second round.”
