It’s evident some of the Bills positional needs are more pressing than others, but head coach Chan Gailey in one-on-one interview with NFL Network made it clear that there are some positions in addition to the more urgent ones where they believe the talent in the draft can help them.
“Offensive line. I think you can never have enough along the offensive line,” Gailey told NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora. ”I think we’d also look at a running back and a receiver. And then defensive linemen, this is probably the deepest draft for defensive linemen that we’ve had in quite a while, so you hope you may be able to do something there as well.”
With only four receivers currently on the roster, it’s obvious they’ll have to add to that talent pool in some way shape or form. And Gailey has mentioned that a back fitting of a third down role whose skill set might be a bit different from that of Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch might be in order. The depth of the defensive tackle class has been well documented and Gailey’s comments make you wonder if they feel they could still get a quality nose tackle talent as late as round three.
