Position Needs for Buffalo
Running Back: Willis McGahee is gone via a trade with Baltimore leaving Anthony Thomas and Shaud Williams has the 2 running backs on the roster. If they don't acquire a proven back via freeagency before the draft this position is in serious trouble and a pick will be needed to fill the void.
Linebacker: Buffalo was terrible against the run in 2006 and now they have traded Takeo Spikes (Philadelphia) in return for a defensive end Darwin Walker. Angelo Crowell and Josh Stamer are both coming off season ending surgery and Keith Ellison is undersized and a liability to hold up for a grueling 16 game schedule.
Cornerback: Nate Clements is gone via free agency (49ers). Adding a CB to play with with youngsters Terrence McGee and Ashton Youboty looks like a smart decision.
Draft Outlook for the Buffalo Bills
With the exception of the 2002 draft, the Bills have done an adequate job selecting college players. Possible candidates for the 12th pick include Michigan defensive tackle Alan Branch (if he is still there), or teammate cornerback Leon Hall.
Adrian Peterson would be a great pick if the Bills can use some of their acquired draft picks from the Willis McGahee trade to move up high enough to snag him. Although it is unlikely they will be able to get high enough without giving away too much, a more probable scenario is going after Cals Marshawn Lynch later in the draft.
