24. Buffalo Bills
Assuming LeSean McCoy is able to play this season, the Bills should lean heavily on their running game to move the ball. That’s good, because they don’t have a quarterback who projects to be anything other than below average in 2018.
Whether it’s A.J. McCarron, Nathan Peterman or Josh Allen, the Bills are going to be erratic throwing the football. A big receiver like Kelvin Benjamin can help cover up some of those errant throws, but he has to get somewhat open first. That’s not the former Panthers strong suit. Expect the Bills to find weapons for Allen next offseason.
The defense profiles as a unit that can be average, but will struggle to really be anything more. Buffalo spent big money to bring in Star Lotulelei this offseason but he’s not a very dynamic player in the middle. He can take up space, but the Bills need first round pick Tremaine Edmunds to be good right away. He lacks the instincts to make a quick transition to the pro game.
In the secondary, the Bills can count on Tre’Davious White, but Vontae Davis really fell off last season. If he doesn’t bounce back, teams are going to pick on anyone White isn’t covering on a play-by-play basis.
The Bills roster just lacks the star power to really be good. They need to add big-time talent through the draft to go with the rank and file players that fill their roster.
