2. Josey Jewell, LB

Normally, the Bills' linebacker core would be in great shape. As long as Matt Milano is out there, they are perfectly fine. However, since Milano went down to injury, Buffalo has struggled at the position. Rookie Dorian Williams was someone we thought could come in and start after he was drafted, but Sean McDermott has taken him out a couple of times already.

Tyrel Dodson is fine, but he also has not been anything special. The Bills need a playmaker there. This defense is used to having a strong, consistent, veteran presence. Broncos linebacker Josey Jewel is also rumored to being available on the trade block, and he'd come relatively cheap in comparison to a player like Surtain.

Jewell is 28 years old and his contract ends this season. But, he's played well this year. Jewell is a linebacker who excels in coverage, which is something Milano is great at. He'd give the Bills a familiar type of play style who could come and plug right into this defensive scheme.

I would assume the Bills can get Jewell for somewhere along the lines of a 5th or 6th rounder, and possibly even a conditional.
