Buffalo is on the cusp of making the Super Bowl. The Bills were 13-3 last season and have Josh Allen, one of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL.

In both 2019 and 2020, the Bills drafted a running back in the third round. Those moves have been solid as Zack Moss and Devin Singletary are solid backs.

But is either special? It doesn’t appear that way and even though Singletary was solid as a receiver, it was noticeable how much Kansas City added to its offense with an elite back, so you wonder if Etienne could have the same impact?

It certainly seems like he can. Watching the Bills battle the Chiefs a year ago in the AFC Championship Game, it seemed like they were just a weapon or so short.

Etienne could be that missing piece and there’s a chance he falls into their lap with the 30th overall pick. If that happens, I don’t see how the Bills pass up the opportunity.

Running back is a position where you need 2-3 good ones anyway and with Etienne, you could be getting the Offensive Rookie of the Year.

He also could be the ticket to the Bills getting back the Super Bowl for the first time in nearly 30 years.
