The Bills spent big money in last years free agency, but that didn’t equate to big production. Mario Williams didn’t live up to his monstrous contract last year and Mark Anderson didn’t show much either. They couldn’t resign Andy Levitre this offseason, which really weakens the interior of their offensive line. They also cut Ryan Fitzpatrick and didn’t sign a QB to replace him. From the outside that has to mean that the Bills are going to select a QB in the upcoming draft, now whether that is in the 1st round or if they wait till the 2nd round we don’t know yet.

Geno Smith – It’s painfully obvious that the Bills are going to have to draft a QB in this draft. Geno Smith is the top rated QB in this draft and if he falls to 8 it will be hard for Buffalo to pass him up. There are 2 questions to ask however. Does Buffalo want to take a QB in the 1st round or wait till the 2nd? Are they willing to trade up for Smith? There is a very slim chance than Geno falls to 8 and if Buffalo truly wants him, they will have to trade up.

Chance Warmack – Buffalo had one of the better young guards in the league last year in Andy Levitre, however they let him sign with another team and now they have a hole at the OG position. Chance Warmack is the #1 player on some peoples draft boards. The 8th pick may seem a little high for an offensive guard, but is it really if you get an all-pro guard who will open up running lanes for Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller? He would pair very well with young OT Cordy Glenn to give the Bills a good young core to their OL.
