Devin Singletary Write-Up

Perhaps it shouldn't be surprising Buffalo opted for a younger version of LeSean McCoy as the potential heir apparent at the position. Singletary pretty much carried the Florida Atlantic program over his last two seasons, piling up 562 carries while rushing for 3,266 yards and 54 touchdowns under HC Lane Kiffin over that span. He did this despite checking in at 5-7 and 203 pounds. Singletary is similar to McCoy in that he has very good lateral agility and can run inside more than one might expect from a player his size. His wear-and-tear isn't the same as other back either since he doesn't often take solid shots and hit the ground as often as someone with his kind of workload usually does. The concerns with him include his career workload (714 career carries), lack of receiving production (six catches in 2018, 25 over the last two seasons) and below-average speed (4.66). Given the age of McCoy and Frank Gore, it would appear Singletary is going to get his shot at taking over the starting job in 2020, which makes him well worth a late first-round pick in rookie drafts. Redraft owners can probably ignore him as long as McCoy and Gore remain upright.

Can he be a younger version of McCoy and also have lack of receiving skills? That seems a bit of a contradiction, no?

He's a bit like McCoy in terms of running style. I also think he's a capable receiver, but he just wasn't used much in that regard in college.
