Earlier this offseason the Buffalo Bills signed running back Damien Harris to a 1-year deal. The Alabama product was a third round pick of the New England Patriots. Harris is a big and physical runner between the tackles at 5’11 214 pounds.
Damien Harris has been a menace to the Bills defense the past two years. I expect Harris to be the starting running back for the Bills this upcoming season. Look for Harris to greatly improve the team’s rushing attack and to be a 1,000 yard back.
The Bills added another interesting piece this offseason in wide receiver Trent Sherfield. Sherfield went undrafted out of Vanderbilt, but was signed by the San Francisco 49ers. At 6’1 206 pounds, Sherfield is a relatively big bodied receiver, but he’s athletic, recording 4.45 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
Bills’ quarterback Josh Allen has liked what he’s seen from Trent Sherfield, saying he’s “rolling”in mini camp. The Miami Dolphins declined to re-sign Sherfield, but the Bills quickly inked him to a 1-year deal. I expect Sherfield to excel in four receiver sets as a downfield threat this upcoming season.
