Bills GM: Surrounding EJ Manuel with as much talent as possible is a high priority

The Buffalo Bills are coming into the 2014 NFL Draft feeling confident in their roster and feel like their isn’t a pressing need. That will allow the Bills to take the best player available instead of focusing on addressing a need. Bills general manager Doug Whaley did suggest that they’d look at drafting an offensive player to help second-year quarterback EJ Manuel.

“It’s a quarterback-driven league, so we’re going to” look at “every avenue and every piece of the puzzle to surround EJ and make him as successful as possible,” Whaley said, via USA TODAY. “What we did this offseason affords us the opportunity to go any way and every way in this draft. Our main focus is making sure EJ progresses.”

The Bills went out and acquired wide receiver Mike Williams to pair with Stevie Johnson, and they have running back C.J. Spiller on the roster. They could be looking at a wide receiver like Texas A&M’s Mike Evans at their No. 9 draft spot.
