Bills Draft Needs
QB, DE, OT, TE, OLB, CB
1 round, 3 pick Buffalo Bills Select: DT Marcell Dareus
This is the guy I would have taken if I was the Panthers or the Broncos because he can make an impact in the running game. It all starts up front and this is a much needed, addition for the Bills defense. This group has been solid against the pass for a few years now but with Marcell Dareus they have a shot to be a sleeper fantasy defense going forward.
Overall Draft Grade: A
34. Cornerback Aaron Williams
This is a nice addition to a defense that is expected to lose some veteran help in the secondary. The Bills have added two quality players to the defense to start the draft.
Fantasy – If Aaron can land a job as a starter he could find some instant success as the Bills secondary has been friendly to IDP fantasy football leagues.
68. Inside Linebacker Kelvin Sheppard
Good inside help for the Bills as they have improved their defense to stop the running game.
100. Defensive Back Da’Norris Searcy
122. Offensive Lineman Chris Hairston
133. Running Back Johnny White
169. Linebacker Chris White
206. Defensive Back Justin Rogers
245. Defensive Tackle Michael Jasper
