Rarely is it a good thing when a team has more questions to be answered in the middle of the offseason compared to when it began.
For the Buffalo Bills, their lack of a productive offseason thus far has further frustrated a fan base and created more holes than would be desirable for any NFL team. Even worse, the Bills possess glaring holes that may not be able to be filled solely through this month’s draft.
Buffalo has been one of the toughest teams to peg in a wide-open draft because its needs do not necessarily fit with the value that will be there when it selects with the eighth pick.
Quarterback, guard, wide receiver and linebacker are all major needs for the Bills, but there seems to be no consensus between those who understand the organization in terms of who Buffalo is targeting early.
Geno Smith, Chance Warmack and Cordarelle Patterson are the popular predictions as you glance over the most trusted mocks. However, there is one thing that we have learned about Buddy Nix’s term as general manager—prepare for the unexpected.
Whoever the Bills select in the first three rounds is irrelevant at this point because their thought process is so unclear, but they must hit one whoever they select if this new regime wants to turn the team around quickly.
Either way the Bills have some big questions heading into the 2013 draft, and the ball is in their court to answer them.
