Bills undrafted rookie RB Kendall Gaskins got a lot of work in the spring practices. During his preparation for training camp, Gaskins went back to his University of Richmond campus to train and sat down for an interview with Spiders TV, where he revealed what the coaches have planned for him position-wise at camp.
Gaskins laid out how the latter rounds of the draft unfolded and that the Bills called him long before the draft was over.
“I got a call around the fifth or sixth round from the Bills and it was Tyrone Wheatley the running backs coach and he was telling me that running back wasn’t a position of need, but they really wanted me,” Gaskins told Spiders TV. ”It’s a good fit for me. Tyrone Wheatley likes big backs and I’m only going to be playing running back, not fullback as well. So it was an overall good choice for me and a good fit for me.”
It’s interesting that Gaskins will not be used as a fullback at all. That essentially leaves a fullback role if Buffalo deems it necessary to have one to Frank Summers, essentially the only true fullback on the roster. Gaskins was one of the eight training camp sleepers listed in our Top 25 Countdown to Training Camp feature on the unknown players to keep an eye on.
