Bills News: Who Will Start at Fullback in 2008?

The fullback position for the Buffalo Bills hasn't been stable since the departure of Sam Gash after the 2003 season. 

The Bills have had Damion Shelton and Ryan Neufeuld at the fullback position since the Gash's deperature . 

Right now the Bills have two fullbacks under contract: journery man Darian Barners and youngster Jonathan Evans.

But the two have failed to be productive on a consistent level. 

And this upcoming season the Bills are going to have to get the fullbacks involved in the game to support running back, Marshawn Lynch, and open up the offense. 

Barnes is the more solid option between him and Evans.  Barnes outplayed Neufield last season but I still see the need for the Bills to get a proven starting fullback this offseason. 

The Bills were entertaining ex-Falcon fullback, Corey McIntyre, this week. 

The other option I see the Bills bringing in at fullback is in the upcoming draft—West Virginia fullback, Owen Schmitt.  He would be a great upgrade at the fullback position for the Bills. 

Schmitt and Gash have similar styles of play.  Both backs are energetic players to watch, and they are fun to watch.  Schmitt shows great power at his position.  He can block and he's a very powerful runner when he breaks loose. 

If the Bills sign McIntyre or draft Schmitt, it would be a huge upgrade for them at the fullback position.
