Showcasing Buffalo Bills' Biggest Strengths and Draft Needs

A 6-10 record in 2012 cost Chan Gailey his head coaching job, but the Buffalo Bills are hoping that changing the man at the helm will lead to a different result next season.

Taking Gailey's place will be Doug Marrone, 48, who was most recently the head coach at Syracuse. Much like his time with the Orange, Marrone will be overtaking a team that's become accustomed to losing.

The Bills had three straight losing seasons in Gailey's tenure, eight straight overall and have finished no higher than third in the AFC East since 2008. After coming into the 2012 campaign with massive aspirations, Buffalo once again settled into the bottom half of the NFL and in the basement of the AFC East.

With a ton of talent on defense, the Bills hired Marrone with the expectation that his innovative offensive stylings would carry over to the NFL.

While that ultimately remains to be seen, Marrone and general manager Buddy Nix have the future of the franchise in their hands this offseason. Most expect a retooling of the roster, but Buffalo could ultimately decide to draft a franchise quarterback at pick No. 8 and hit a team-wide reset button.

In other words, nobody's safe. With that in mind, let's take a complete look at the Bills' roster and highlight a few strong areas and others they will need to fix on draft day.
