State of the Bills Roster: Depth Chart

As we've progressed through our State of the Bills roster series, breaking down each position in advance of an important off-season for the Buffalo Bills, I've received several requests via email for a running depth chart. That's not a bad idea; hence this post.

After the jump, you'll find a depth chart that essentially outlines everything I've said in the "If I were a betting man" chunk of the series. Basically, it's how I believe the Bills should - and, hopefully, will - project their depth chart heading into the off-season. As you'll see, there are quite a few holes, and this exercise should clearly define the areas that the Bills need to address.
