Buffalo Bills have too many needs to move up

The Buffalo Bills have far too many needs to be moving up in the draft.  This would almost certainly require giving up an extra pick, along with giving up the 27th pick.

The Bills only have six picks to begin with in this draft and will need everyone one of them to fill needs.  I’m not saying there are glaring holes on this Bills roster but they need more depth on the offensive line, or even a possible starting caliber player or two on the line.

As of now, the Bills have no defensive tackles under contract past the upcoming 2023 season.  It would be a good idea to pick one up in the draft, someone that can learn the ropes of the NFL behind the current vets on the team.

Another area of need is at safety.  Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer are both north of 30 and despite the free agent signings of Zayne Anderson and Taylor Rapp, if there is a solid rookie that falls to the Bills at some point in the draft, it would be good to pick one up to learn behind one of the best starting safety duos in the league.
