Buffalo Bills Draft Options After Beginning of Free Agency

The Buffalo Bills started out slow with their free agency moves. But after the ball got rolling Buffalo Bills fans can now see the direction that the bills are headed and they’ve set themselves up decently for the upcoming draft in April.

With recent signings of Brandon Spikes, Keith Rivers, Anthony Dixon, and offensive lineman Chris Williams, the Buffalo Bills are now looking to either pick up another offensive lineman, like Matthews, to fill the gap of Eric Pears or a big number one receiver like that of Mike Evans or even a wide receiver that will make an impact like Sammy Watkins.

The Bills also moved away from a first round tight end draft option when they re-signed Scott Chandler who had a career year for the Bills last year. Although I wouldn’t be surprised if the Bills did not look for a tight end in the third or fourth round. The tight end that I am looking at right now with where the Bills stand would be Austin Safarian-Jenkins.

The Buffalo Bills have secured the running back position by bringing Anthony Dixon to help out with the injury logged CJ Spiller and Fred Jackson.

With Anthony Dixon coming in I wonder if Nathaniel Hackett is looking to use Spiller in more of a versatile role rather than a number one running back. This would take the two back system and move it to more of a three back system with Spiller, Jackson, and Dixon with Spiller being a more versatile player and possibly going out wide at times.

At this time I don’t see the bills making much more of a splash in the freezer market unless it’s more for depth reasons. I can see the Bills going wide receiver, offensive tackle and tight end in the first three rounds of their 2014 NFL Draft.
