In putting together our State of the Buffalo Bills Roster series, we asked the Buffalo Rumblings community to vote for the biggest offensive and defensive needs the team has entering the 2012 off-season. Now it's time to continue voting to merge those two lists into one community-developed needs list.

Bills fans are clearly still worried about the team's defense, as a pass-rushing defensive end and a 4-3 strong-side outside linebacker sit atop this community's collective needs list. Today's poll for the No. 3 position on the list comes down to wide receiver and cornerback.

At receiver, the Bills need a legitimate No. 2 receiving option to complement Stevie Johnson, who just happens to be an impending free agent. If the team can't retain Johnson, they'll need two starting receivers. At cornerback, the team has two young players they like (Aaron Williams most specifically), but also a trio of veterans that played poorly in 2011 and will make good money in 2012. Depth is needed, and better talent atop the depth chart is, as well.

Will the offense finally get some love on the needs list, or will the defense continue to reign supreme? You decide!
