Bills GM leaves options open at 19

It’s an obvious question for any NFL GM this time of year. What is the biggest need for your team with your top draft choice in round one? When Bills GM Doug Whaley was asked that question this morning in an appearance on NFL Network he left all his options open.

“We’ve lost some defensive players that’s true,” said Whaley. “But if you look up and down our roster there’s not a position on our squad where we wouldn’t have a chance to pick a guy at 19 and people would say, ‘Oh I can see why they did that.’ We need some depth in a lot of areas and we need some starters in a few areas. We’re going to look at every possible position and not limit ourselves.”

Many believe the Bills will lean heavily to the defensive side of the ball in the 2016 NFL draft. Whether that increases the likelihood of Buffalo taking a defensive player in round one largely depends on what comes off the board in front of them with the first 18 selections.
