Updated Buffalo Bills Depth Chart, Post-2011 NFL Draft

With the 2011 NFL Draft in the books, we thought it was about time to take a look at an updated - and obviously projected, and very unofficial - Buffalo Bills depth chart. You'll find it after the jump, along with an explanation on why you won't find a few big names on the depth chart itself.

You'll notice several names missing from this depth chart. That has everything to do with the fact that NFL free agency has not occurred yet. Here's a breakdown of the names you'd have been looking for without this explanation.

  • Drayton Florence (CB) and Akin Ayodele (ILB) are unrestricted free agents, and will be regardless of what the new CBA looks like.
  • Paul Posluszny (ILB) and Donte Whitner (SS) were tendered restricted offers prior to the close of the 2010 league year. A new CBA is expected to render those tags moot, making them unrestricted free agents. It is also possible that the league reverts to 2010 rules if the lockout is permanently lifted, which could keep both players in Buffalo for another year.
  • John McCargo (DE), Keith Ellison (ILB) and Ashton Youboty (CB) were in the same boat as Posluszny and Whitner, but were not tendered restricted offers. This serves as an indication that regardless of what the new CBA looks like, the chances of any of these players returning to the team are slim to none.
  • Brian Brohm (QB), Quinton Ganther (RB) and Jonathan Stupar (TE) were scheduled for restricted free agency regardless of what the new CBA looks like. They did not receive tender offers prior to the close of the league year, which again serves as an indication that their chances of returning are not good.
