That limits his role to just one phase, and in special teams he has stood out throughout his NFL career.New Buffalo Bills special-teams coach Heath Farwell has taken notice in his short time in Western New York and brought up DiMarco during his press conference Thursday morning.“It’s always been unbelievable in my meetings and on the field there’s leadership but Pat DiMarco,” said Farwell when asked about leaders other than Lorenzo Alexander on special teams . “I think [he] has covered a million kicks and has played for a long time. He’s been huge in the leadership, in the meeting rooms, on the field Womens Kyle Williams Jersey , and all that stuff. He’s giving me feedback, you know; what’s going on out there and what can I work on. He’s been great and I rely on those guys big time. My relationship with those guys is unbelievable and I hope that they would agree.”DiMarco was fourth on the Bills in special-teams snaps in 2018 under former special-teams coach Danny Crossman. At 400 combined snaps on offense and special teams, he has carved out a role on the team that often flies under the radar.This could just be the start for DiMarco. When current Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll was with the New England Patriots, fullback Joe Develin was a fixture of the offense, playing 350 snaps in 2016. Tom Brady and Bill Belichick have both praised Develin for his offensive and special-teams contributions, noting his importance.While DiMarco only played 168 offensive snaps in 2018 under Daboll http://www.thebillslockerroom.com/authen...lls-jersey , the Bills had a rather sub-par offensive line, as evidenced by the great effort to overhaul each and every position this offseason. Also, LeSean McCoy doesn’t prefer playing with a fullback, but Frank Gore or Devin Singletary might. He played 265 offensive plays in 2017 under Rick Dennison, 324 in Atlanta in 2016, and 366 during his Pro Bowl season in 2015. His value as a leader on special teams and as an offensive player could rise in 2019. The Bills have been one of the busiest teams in the league this offseason as they’ve added 17 free agents to the roster over the last couple of months.Many of those signings have been on the offensive side of the ball as the Bills are working to put together a more competitive unit than the one they fielded on their way to a 6-10 record last year. On Monday Tre'Davious White Jersey , General Manager Brandon Beane said that all of those moves leave the team in position to take the best available player heading into next week’s draft.“I don’t feel like we have a glaring hole on the roster,” Beane said, via Joe Buscaglia of WKBW. “Not saying that we don’t have needs, but we don’t have a glaring hole this year. At least we’ve accomplished that.”With the No. 9 pick in the first round, the Bills are well positioned to add an impact player regardless of which direction they opt to take early in the draft.
