State of the Bills Roster

WR overview: young guns

The Buffalo Bills need more size and talent at wide receiver, but don't let that distract from the fact that the talent on hand is quite good - and still very young.

How stable are the Bills at CB?

With just six cornerbacks currently on the roster, the Buffalo Bills will be adding bodies - and potentially quite a few of them - to their defensive backfield this spring.

Bills DE/OLB overview: 'tweeners galore

Mario Williams sticks out like a sore thumb among the Buffalo Bills' current group of pass rushers, for more than one reason. Here's our overview of the position.

Bills QB overview: all in on Manuel

Will the Buffalo Bills look to complement EJ Manuel with a veteran backup this offseason, or are they content with their current crop of young guys?

Bills have two big questions at QB

Our pre-training camp State of the Bills Roster series concludes with a quick overview of the team's new-look quarterback position.

"Edge defender" tough to define for Bills

The Buffalo Bills have some big decisions to make with their pass rushers; divvying up playing time will be the biggest among them.

Big year ahead for Bills RBs?

The Bills had the NFL's sixth-best rushing attack in 2012, and there's a very good chance they could be even better in that area in 2013.

Alonso headlines young Bills LB group

Doug Marrone and Mike Pettine decided to add two linebackers coaches this off-season; they'll have their work cut out for them coaching up a very young Bills linebacking corps.

Young, talented Bills OTs have durability concerns

Buffalo didn't make any personnel changes at offensive tackle this off-season, rolling the dice on the young talent on hand - and that the group's durability concerns will be more manageable.

Bills young, unproven or both at cornerback

Thanks largely to a new coaching staff, the Bills will look different at cornerback in 2013 - even without making major personnel moves at the position.

Bills have several candidates to replace Levitre

The Bills need to replace the departed Andy Levitre at left guard - and in doing so, they'll likely be promoting from within.

Bills' safety makeover needs a Byrd deal next

The Bills have enviable depth and versatility at safety - and they shouldn't let it affect negotiations with star defender Jairus Byrd.

Chandler injury the lead story at TE

If the Bills are still worried about Scott Chandler's injury, they may be relying on a highly unproven player to start the 2013 season.

Bills' D-Line still starts with Kyle

Buffalo's defensive line conversation still begins with Kyle Williams - and that should affect the team's schematic plans defensively.

Bills need Stevie to be a leader

Remember when Stevie Johnson was the young up-and-comer three whole years ago? Now he's the grizzled vet when it comes to Bills receivers.

Hopkins, Powell, Sanborn: from FSU to Buffalo

There is a very distinct possibility that the Buffalo Bills could have an all-Florida State trio of specialists in 2013.

Levitre may be hard for Bills to keep

Buffalo Bills left guard Andy Levitre has started 64 straight games in Buffalo. Bills fans should not be surprised if consecutive start No. 65 comes in a different uniform.

Bills have major questions at linebacker

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone added two linebackers coaches to his staff, indicating that the team will place more importance on a position at which the Bills have struggled mightily of late.

Bills have good young prospects at OT

Doug Marrone - a former offensive lineman and NFL offensive line coach - has a young group of Buffalo Bills tackles to work with entering his first season as head coach.

It's Gilmore, then questions at CB for Bills

The Buffalo Bills have one certainty at cornerback: Stephon Gilmore is their top cover man. A minimum of three major questions (plus eight players) lie beyond him on the depth chart.

Will Bills seek more impact at TE?

Buffalo Bills tight end Scott Chandler had ACL surgery in January, which could affect his training camp availability. He's the least of the team's problems at the position.

Re-signing Jairus: Priority No. 1

With Jairus Byrd in tow, the Buffalo Bills are in a good spot at safety. Without the impending free agent, they're in a world of hurt.

2013 should be Spiller's year to shine

Ascending star C.J. Spiller has overtaken reliable veteran Fred Jackson at running back for the Buffalo Bills. While the team plans to feature Spiller more in 2013, they should also take a hard look at their depth situation.

Depth the big question for Bills at DT

The Buffalo Bills have two quality defensive tackles that play a majority of snaps, but there are still questions to be answered when it comes to depth at the position.

Bills lack clarity at receiver position

As the Buffalo Bills transition out of Chan Gailey's offense and into one put together by Doug Marrone and Nathaniel Hackett, getting a read on the receiver position will prove quite difficult.

Bills players with special teams considerations

With the Buffalo Bills transitioning to a new coaching staff and roster changes forthcoming, these 10 "core" specialists from the 2012 Bills are worth keeping in mind over the next few months.
