Buffalo Bills Team Needs and Offseason Headquarters Page


The Buffalo Bills I thought had one of the more intriguing draft classes in 2013, and I think this team is well on its way to providing someone to compete with New England in the AFC East.

Buffalo used its first round pick last year on E.J. Manuel, the Florida State quarterback who struggled through injury in his first year with the team. They also drafted guys like Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin to give the team some athleticism and speed offensively.

I like where the Bills are heading, and with Jim Schwartz calling the shots defensively I think this team could be a really tough out in 2014.

Player Movement

Players Lost

  • QB Kevin Kolb (released)
  • S Jairus Byrd (UFA Saints)
  • LB Arthur Moats (UFA Steelers)

Players Added

  • OG Chris Williams (Rams)
  • CB Corey Graham (Ravens)
  • LB Keith Rivers (Giants)
  • TE Scott Chandler (re-signed)
  • LB Brandon Spikes (Patriots)
  • RB Anthony Dixon (49ers)

Bills Team Needs

1. Guard

Andy Levitre left last offseason and needs to officially be replaced. Chris Williams was brought in from St. Louis, but he’s not overly reliable at this point. The Bills would be wise to invest one of their top three or four picks on a player who can play guard.

2. Tight End

I like some of the fliers the Bills have taken on guys like Tony Moeaki or Chris Gragg (2013 7th rounder) but getting a true dynamic playmaker at tight end could be huge for this offense. Scott Chandler is a solid player but the Bills could upgrade.

3. Safety

Anytime your best player leaves, or one of your best players, you have to find a way to replace him. The Bills tried to keep Jairus Byrd but he left for New Orleans. Safety has to be a priority for them at some point in the draft depending how confident they are in their mid-round picks Da’Norris Searcy, Duke Williams, and Jonathan Meeks.

4. Front 7 Depth (defense)

5. Right Tackle
