The Buffalo Bills have selected FAU running back Devin Singletary in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Singletary, 21, was a three-year starter at Florida Atlantic University. The diminutive rusher is a big-play machine, as he averaged six yards per rush throughout his collegiate career. His best season was his sophomore year in 2017, where he rushed for 1,918 yards and 32 (yes, you read that correctly) touchdowns.

Singletary managed to score 66 touchdowns on 714 rushes in college. He was not used much as a receiver, managing only 51 catches for 397 yards and one touchdown over his three years at FAU. His speed and toughness profile well for Buffalo’s offense.

Singletary is easily the youngest member of Buffalo’s backfield, which is currently topped by 31-year-old LeSean McCoy and 36-year-old Frank Gore. With both players nearing the end of their storied NFL careers, Buffalo needed to add young talent to the position. Singletary joins 25-year old T.J. Yeldon, who signed last week, as that young talent for the future.
