How will the RB workload be split? -
It’s a question that has been extremely popular since C.J. Spiller was drafted ninth overall by the Bills in late April. With a game breaking talent like Spiller added to an offensive backfield with Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch, how will the rushing workload be divided?

Who will start at quarterback? -
"Close because none of the three candidates convincingly separated themselves from the other two in the competition. Brian Brohm, Trent Edwards and Ryan Fitzpatrick all had their fair share of opportunity through the course of the spring and were all new to Gailey’s offensive scheme. The only signal caller who saw his reps cut back toward the end of the spring practices was rookie seventh-round pick Levi Brown, who is very much in the team’s plans down the line."

Pitts visits Buffalo
OL Pitts visits Bills -

"Pitts (6'4" 308) is an eight-year NFL veteran that has spent his entire career with the Houston Texans, where he has been a starter since the club made him a second-round pick in 2002. He's played primarily left guard for the Texans, but has also spent time at left tackle."

Pitts a proven player – Inside The Bills
"What should be noted here is that the Bills likely see Pitts as veteran depth for the interior of their offensive line, not starting material. The club has a lot of faith and stock in Levitre and Wood at the guard spots."
