Under general manager Brandon Beane, the Buffalo Bills have completely changed their roster and turned their franchise around. They have worked their contracts strategically, found their franchise quarterback and surrounded him with talent and youth.

Not only are they prepared for the future, they are also capable of contending right now, and that is because they have so much youthful talent.

With that in mind, here are the three best Bills players under the age of 25.

3. Dawson Knox, TE (23)

Dawson Knox underwent the struggles that most rookie tight ends suffer from, since they are matched up with bigger, faster defenders than they have ever seen. Still, Knox showed some great potential as a receiver. He caught a pass of at least 20 yards in seven different games last season, proving his can be the athletic, big, downfield threat for Josh Allen. At 6-foot-4, the hope is that Knox can also develop into a solid red zone option this year as well, and that he can develop as a blocker to make him more of an every-down player.

2. Devin Singletary, RB (22)

Averaging 5.1 yards per carry as a rookie, Devin Singletary showed last season that he has the potential develop into one of the best running backs in the league. He is incredibly quick and shifty, which is why his injury last season took such a toll on his play. Still, he finished the year with 775 rushing yards, and he will look to break the 1,000-yard mark this year now that he's in line to be the feature back in the offense.

1. Josh Allen, QB (24)

This shouldn't be a surprise. Josh Allen is the franchise quarterback that was alluded to earlier, and the team as committed to building around him. He made significant improvements in his passing from his first to second season, and he'll look to take another jump in 2020. That will be made easier now that the Bills have given him a star receiver to throw to by trading for Stefon Diggs. Aside from his big arm, Allen also makes plays with his legs, running for 510 yards and 9 touchdowns last season. If he takes the next step this season, his team will follow.
