Even with the disappointing finish to last season, the Buffalo Bills still have one of the top rosters in the NFL. This certainly gives general manager Brandon Beane more flexibility heading into the 2023 NFL Draft and the opportunity to lean more into the strategy of the best player available.
However, the best player available strategy only works within reason and there are a few positions that the Buffalo Bills shouldn’t consider based on their current roster and moves they have made early in free agency.
4 positions the Buffalo Bills don’t have to worry about in the 2023 NFL Draft
The first one is obvious as the depth chart at quarterback is pretty much set at this point. The Buffalo Bills have their franchise quarterback in Josh Allen, who continues to be one of the top quarterbacks in the league. He certainly struggled down the stretch but this likely was more to the elbow injury versus a possible regression in terms of talent.
The Buffalo Bills did have to add a backup quarterback this offseason after Case Keenum signed with the Houston Texans as a free agent. They found his replacement in Kyle Allen, who played for the Texans last season, and knows Josh Allen well.
The addition of Kyle Allen, along with Matt Barkley on the roster, gives the Buffalo Bills a complete quarterback room. While they may consider a quarterback on Day 3, when taking into account the fact that they only have six picks, it seems like picks should try to be maximized with players who have a better chance of contributing.
