In last year's NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills hit the jackpot. Not only did they add their franchise quarterback in E.J. Manuel, but the team also added talent at a number of other positions. That said, if the Bills want to continue developing, they need to keep hitting on their draft picks.
Ladies and gentlemen, here is a ranking the Buffalo Bills' five biggest draft needs.
Erik Pears simply isn’t getting it done on the right side of the Buffalo offensive line, and it’s time the team starts looking for his replacement. This year’s draft class is extremely deep along the offensive line, and right tackle needs to be a priority.
Although the Bills went out and signed guard Chris Williams in free agency, the fact is, Williams isn't really an NFL starter. With someone like Cyril Richardson hanging around in the third round, the Bills would be wise to pull the trigger.
On one side of Buffalo’s defense, Mario Williams is running around taking down opposing passers at will, however, the other defensive end spot is a concern. Alan Branch is fine as a backup, but miscast as a starter, and the Bills should definitely target the position in the draft.
Scott Chandler is nothing more than average, and to be honest, if the Bills really want their offense to take the next step, Chandler should be replaced by a younger option. With Eric Ebron likely available at No. 9 overall, the Bills shouldn’t hesitate to snag him.
Losing Jairus Byrd to free agency was a huge blow to this Bills secondary, and it’s crucial now that the team addresses the position in the draft. If somebody like Terrence Brooks or Dion Bailey is available after the first couple rounds, the Bills should be sure to target them.
