The Buffalo Bills have been at the forefront of many conversations during the NFL offseason thus far.
Stefon Diggs has been largely absent from team activities, a cause for concern for many around the league.
While Diggs’ absence has been noted and could become a larger deal, another player has been able to shine in minicamp.
The team devoted first-round draft capital to Dalton Kincaid, a tight-end prospect that’s making a real name for himself.
As Mina Kimes recently pointed out in an episode of NFL Live, “He’s the type of player that Week 1 is going to have an immediate impact on this team.”

After Diggs, the Bills’ receiving depth is somewhat limited.
Gabe Davis hasn’t necessarily been the consistent player that the team has craved, and Khalil Shakir is entering his second year in 2023.
If the hype around Kincaid is warranted, the Bills could have an elite player on their hands for the years to come.
Players like Travis Kelce, George Kittle, TJ Hockenson, and Mark Andrews have completely changed the tight end position.
They’ve established themselves as some of the best pass-catchers in the league, a departure from the traditional, blocking-only tight ends.
This has paved the way for others at the position to succeed, including Kincaid and Kyle Pitts, the highest-drafted tight end in NFL history.
Whether Diggs will play week 1 for the Bills remains to be seen.
Regardless, Kincaid is getting valuable reps at minicamp, which will continue to drive his relationship and chemistry forward with Josh Allen.NEXT: Josh Allen Has High Praise For 1 New Bills WR
