Dalton Kincaid’s Middle Name is Unique and Awesome
By now, you probably know that the Buffalo Bills have a brand new weapon in the passing game.
The Bills used the 25th overall pick in last night's first round of the 2023 NFL Draft, to take Utah tight end, Dalton Kincaid. The Bills traded up two spots to draft Kincaid.
He's a pure receiving tight end. The Bills won't ask him to block and will likely line him up in the slot, basically being used as a slot wide receiver. You see this often with players like Travis Kelce, who is slot receiver in the Kansas City Chiefs offense.
Kincaid is 23 years old, so a little older than most rookies, but that's because he transferred and spent five years in college. Still, he was far and away the best receiving tight end in the class.
Kincaid's middle name is also pretty great. It's a name I don't think I have seen before.
Dalton Mosser Kincaid.
Is "Mosser" like Randy Moss? That would be pretty cool but we don't know how it's pronounced.
The Bills will have to use more two-tight end sets and run 12 personnel, which they have simply not done since Josh Allen became a star in Buffalo. You could say that was by choice, but the Bills haven't really had a tight end worthy enough to run that kind of offense.
Now, they can leave Kincaid in the slot and have Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis play out wide. Knox can stay on the line and either block or run out. It opens up more for the offense, if used properly.
