Buffalo Bills GM Buddy Nix and head coach Chan Gailey have made it clear this off-season that their goal with the team is to create competition for as many roster spots as possible. Our (first) question for you on this fine national holiday: how many of the team's new faces that, as of today, have a legitimate crack at a starting job will actually wind up as starters for the team next season?

We count five new players that have a very good chance at landing a starting job this summer (in no particular order): wide receiver T.J. Graham, left tackle Cordy Glenn, defensive ends Mario Williams and Mark Anderson, and cornerback Stephon Gilmore. This should not be particularly surprising to anyone, as we're talking about the team's two prize free agent acquisitions and its top three draft picks, after all.

Most of these players will face direct competition for their jobs, with the only exception being Williams - he's the highest-paid defender in NFL history, so he's a shoo-in to start. How many of these five players do you foresee being opening-day starters, Bills fans?
