The Buffalo Bills are an up-and-coming team with a ton of talent, much of it coming from the 2013 NFL Draft class. Between E.J. Manuel, Robert Woods and Kiko Alonso, the Bills brought in a lot of good talent, but it's crucial for the team to do it again this year. With that in mind, ladies and gentlemen, here are five day two prospects the Buffalo Bills must target.
When the Bills lost star free safety Jairus Byrd to free agency, a huge hole was opened up in the Bills' defensive backfield. Terrence Brooks out of Florida State could be just the player the Bills need to help fill that void. Brooks has fantastic speed and range, however, he needs to improve his play recognition and technique. That said, Brooks could be the Bills' answer at safety.
The interior line has been a problem for the Bills since Andy Levitre left, and it's time to take care of it. Gabe Jackson is a great athlete for his size and has the potential to thrive as a power blocker -- it's just a matter of cleaning up some technical issues in his game.
Much like Jackson, Cyril Richardson would be a great addition to an interior line that has struggled. Richardson is a great pass-blocker and has surprising athletic ability for a man of his size. But he tends to be his own worst enemy at times, as he makes small mental errors more often than you would like to see. That said, Richardson would still be an effective addition.
Although the Bills have talent at the wide receiver position, they lack the type of big, red zone threat that the NFL's best offenses have. By picking up Martavis Bryant, the Bills would instantly put themselves in a position to have a greatly improved offense, as he is exactly the type of player they are missing.
Erik Pears is a liability on the ride side of the line, and it's time the Bills look for his replacement. Joel Bitonio isn't the most well-known prospect available, but he has all the talent needed to shore up the Bills' line.
