The Buffalo Bills are up next in our Reader’s Mock Draft with the 8th selection.  I had prepared a whole spiel about the Bill need to get a quarterback, but then they go and sign Kevin Kolb, so I don’t know what they’re going to do in the draft.

The Bills let quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick go and brought in Kevin Kolb.  I don’t know if that’s an upgrade or not, so it’s possible that they could still try for a quarterback at some point in the draft, but this move gives them a little more draft flexibility.  They also let guard Andy Levitre go, so is it possible that they try to replace him with a top guard in the draft class?    It’s also clear the Bills would like a wide receiver to play opposite Stevie Johnso, so with the top WR still on the board, do that make sense?

On the defensive side of the ball, could they go after a defensive end to put opposite Mario Williams?  Do they try to add a linebacker to help improve the middle of their defense?
