Former Buffalo Bills GM Bill Polian sat down and talked about Buffalo's offseason needs on defense after finishing the year 8-8. Polian believes that Buffalo's biggest defensive need to address this offseason is the secondary.
"First of all, Rex Ryan, with his defense, can never have enough cornerbacks so start there," Polian said. "They probably could use a safety like [Calvin] Pryor, who Rex drafted, I believe, in New York."
The safety position could certainly be an area that the Bills address early in the 2016 draft. There are still some questions surrounding Aaron Williams' neck injury and Corey Graham struggled towards the end of the season. Bacarri Rambo, who saw plenty of playing time on the field in 2015, improved as the season wore on but there may be better options available to Buffalo in the draft. Polian's cornerback comment was a bit surprising. Although you can never have too much depth at cornerback, hardly anyone who watched the Bills this season would say that cornerback is a high priority for the team. Buffalo has a terrific starting duo in Stephon Gilmore and Ronald Darby, as well as quality slot cornerback in Nickell Robey. You can always add depth to compete against Mario Butler, but cornerback shouldn't be looked upon as a high priority in the draft.
Polian later added that Buffalo could also use a little help on their defensive line but never mentioned the linebacker position, arguably Buffalo's worst defensive positional unit in 2015.null
