The Buffalo Bills have some roster groups that are among the best in the NFL, and others that need some serious upgrades this offseason.

The Buffalo Bills have some great position groups on defense. Not so much on offense.

ESPN’s Mike Clay recently went through every NFL team and broke down each roster by position. His weighted system then came up with overall grades for each team.

See for yourself below:

As you can see, the Bills come in at No. 29 overall. The team also has the lowest graded offense in the NFL, although the defense is fifth overall.

There should be no surprises with these grades. The good news is that these are grades before free agency. Assuming Brandon Beane doesn’t go off and hibernate, the roster will get better.

The other good news is that the grades show just how well the defense stacks up against other units in the NFL. The Bills just need to add someone to step in for Kyle Williams and all the holes will be filled before training camp even begins. The team may even look at that position at No. 9 overall in the draft.

The obvious concern for the Bills heading into 2019 is the offense. The low grade given to the quarterbacks is alarming, but it makes sense considering Josh Allen is coming off his rookie year. I think he did well with the talent that was around him, but if one only looks at his stats then the numbers weren’t great.

Next. 5 wide receivers to consider in free agency. dark

These grades give fans an idea of what position groups need to improve. Yet the key will be to look at the grades once training camp is set to begin and the roster has all its pieces. If the grades are still low, that will be a major problem.
