NFL Analyst Rips Into Bills’ Selection Of Dalton Kincaid

Dalton Kincaid, Bills

One of the more surprising selections in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft was made by the Buffalo Bills. It was no secret that the Bills were on the lookout for some more weapons on offense this offseason. They added one with their first-round pick, but not at the position many expected.

Buffalo made a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars, moving up from No. 27 to No. 25 after Jacksonville traded back from No. 24 to No. 25 with the New York Giants. The Bills traded a fourth-round pick, No. 130, to the Jaguars to jump up two spots.

With the No. 25 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, the Bills selected Utah tight end Dalton Kincaid. In need of some more consistent pass catchers on offense, Kincaid certainly fits the bill. Some people loved the selection, feeling that he has Rookie of the Year potential in a high-powered Bills offense.

Other people, however, were not so high on the pick. One of the people that weren’t a fan of the selection was Pete Prisco of CBS Sports. Prisco didn’t hold back when sharing his opinion, as the C grade that he gave the Bills was the third lowest of the first round, tied with the Los Angeles Chargers selecting wide receiver Quentin Johnston.

“This is a strange pick when you consider they have Dawson Knox and have a few more pressing needs. Kincaid is a good player, but the position doesn’t make sense and they traded up to get him.”

This selection is a classic case of a good player, a questionable pick. A tight end wasn’t anywhere near the top of their list of needs heading into the draft. In fact, it may not have been on there at all.

The Bills already have a very good tight end entrenched as the starter in Dawson Knox. Having another versatile tight end on the roster will open things up from a formation standpoint as the Bills pass the ball as much as anyone in the NFL.

With a run on wide receivers occurring from pick No. 20-24, the Bills likely saw this as their best opportunity to add to their receiving corps in the first round. The Dallas Cowboys were rumored to be targeting a tight end at No. 26, so moving ahead of them was imperative.

Buffalo could have tried to jump up to get in on the run of wide receivers, but you have to find a willing trade partner. Those teams all liked the position they were in, leaving the Bills to select a tight end to fix their pass-catching woes.
