Right Tackle: Cam Robinson, Alabama
Robinson would be an interesting pick. He played left tackle throughout his career at Alabama, but some scouts suggest Robinson may be a better fit at right tackle in the NFL. With Cordy Glenn in place at left tackle, the Bills need to address right tackle.
The Bills re-signed Jordan Mills, but his struggles last season suggest that may have been a move made to fill some depth. Seantrel Henderson is in the middle of his second suspension (10 games) and Cyrus Kouandjio is recovering from hip surgery in January.
Robinson could solidify the line at right tackle and give the Buffalo Bills some options and youth moving forward. The Bills have a couple starters on the line over 30, Richie Incognito turns 34 in July and Eric Wood just turned 31.
Hopefully they can both turn in a few more seasons, but the Bills still need to address the future of the offensive line.
Tight End: OJ Howard, Alabama
As crazy as it seems to draft a tight end with the tenth overall pick, drafting Howard could be well worth the risk. If the Bills line up in a double tight end set, OJ Howard and Charles Clay could provide match-up nightmares for opposing defenses and give the coaches some play calling flexibility.
Having two tight ends on the field at the same time, who can block and make plays in the passing game, would make the league’s best running offense even more dangerous.

Howard could also give the Bills a long term starter at tight end if the Bills eventually decide to move on from Charles Clay, who recently turned 28, has lingering knee injury concerns, and is averaging a $7 million per year salary.
The Buffalo Bills have their work cut out for them in the draft. There are many roster needs to fill and only 6 picks to fill them with. In an off-season full of changes, one change I would personally like to see is a reversal in draft futility.
The Bills have the lowest draft retention rate in the league and that needs to change, starting with this year’s draft. So far I like the moves that have been made this off-season and the seeming change in culture coming to One Bills Drive.
There are many different directions the Bills could go in the draft. If this trend of smart off-season moves continue, they could take a big step in the right direction. Success in the draft is still one of the most important keys to building a championship team.
