[Editor's note: The following is our first in a series of NFL Draft team needs by division.]
1. OT: Bills fans don't want to hear it, but Dick Jauron overachieved considering this roster. There are gaping holes everywhere but the secondary and running back. Fixing the tackle spot is a nice place to start.
2. QB: I'm one of the few people left that believes Trent Edwards could be capable with the right group around him, but no one in Buffalo seems to share that optimism. Including Chan Gailey.
4. WR: James Hardy, ostensibly the team's second receiver, has ten career catches and wasn't impressive as a rookie before ACL surgery. Roscoe Parrish, the team's third receiver, is always on the trade block. Steve Johnson, he of 12 career catches, might pass them both. That's not good.
4.(tie) LB: The defense needs to make a fast transition from light, quick, and injured to stout, versatile and healthy. Paul Posluszy and Aaron Maybin are the only two current linebackers that should be on the team in '12.
2. S: A rookie free safety may not be much better than Gibril Wilson was last year, but he should be a lot cheaper.
3. WR: This group is better than you think, but it has too many Indians without a true Chief. Davone Bess, Greg Camarillo, and Brian Hartline can make tough catches, but don't have speed. Ted Ginn can blaze, but can't make tough catches. (Or easy catches.) Dez Bryant makes a lot of sense.
4. DT: Miami's defensive line may be the most underrated in the league, but they still need a long-term replacement for Jason Ferguson. Paul Soliai is better as a part-time player.
1. OLB: This is supposed to be a defense defined by its linebackers. But that last decent outside pass rusher Bill Belichick drafted was Tully Banta-Cain. The last one before that was in Cleveland.
