Post-Draft Review: Buffalo Bills

The Bills had numerous pre-draft needs. They came out of the draft with still too many issues.

Pre-Draft Needs: OLT, DT, WR, QB, OLB, DE

Players Added

Round 1-C.J. Spiller/RB - While this position wasn't a need, getting more explosiveness on offense was imperative for Buffalo. Spiller should yield 10-12 touches on offense each game while returning kicks on special teams.

Round 2-Torell Troup/DT - They needed to get bigger on the inside of their defense. Troup should fit in well as a NT.

Round 3-Alex Carrington/DE - He'll likely be asked to put on more weight to play with his hand down in Buffalo's 3-4 defense.

Round 4-Marcus Easley/WR - Before his final collegiate season, Easley was off the radar of the NFL. However, he put up huge numbers last season and followed that up with a strong NFL Combine performance. Easley has a shot to get into the top-four of the receiver rotation this season.

Round 5-Ed Wang/OT - He projects to play left tackle or guard, but Wang is more of a developmental prospect at this point.

Round 6-Arthur Moats/LB - Moats has drawn comparisons to Pittsburgh Steelers OLB James Harrison. Moats played DE in college, but will play standing up at the next level.

Round 6-Danny Batten/LB - The small school prospect will transition to OLB at the next level. Because Buffalo is in need of a few developmental prospects at OLB, Batten has a good chance of making the team as a backup.

Round 7-Levi Brown/QB - Buffalo had a higher grade on him than most teams. Brown has a legitimate chance to make the team as the third quarterback.

Round 7-Kyle Calloway/OT - He projects to be a backup left tackle at the NFL level.

Post-Draft Needs

Left Tackle - This position was the biggest need entering the draft. Left tackle remains a huge need for Buffalo. That's why the rumors of acquiring LT Jared Gaither from the Ravens makes sense.

Wide Receiver - They decided not to re-sign veteran WR Terrell Owens, but Buffalo seemingly doesn't have his replacement.

Quarterback - They waited until the seventh round to address this position. The quarterback position remains one of issue as this team reshapes their 80-man roster.

Outside Linebacker - With two aging DEs moving to OLB, it remains to be seen if Buffalo has what it takes from a pass rushing standpoint to stifle opposing offenses.
