Eric Ebron believes the Lions and Bills are interested in drafting him | ProFootballTalk

Ranking the Buffalo Bills' draft needs - ESPN
Mike Rodak outlines his draft priorities for the Bills. The only exception I would make is his valuation of defensive backs so low. The Bills have clearly made a point of bringing in cornerbacks and have a hole at safety that should be addressed before "mid-to-late rounds."

WGR 550 SportsRadio - Bills Draft Outlook: Offensive Tackle
"A suitable replacement will be necessary for Pears, and if Hairston isn’t available this upcoming season, the Bills will also need additional depth for the position beyond Glenn and their eventual draft pick. That makes finding a tackle a rather large priority for the team, and that could dictate some of their early draft plans."

DB Kyle Fuller has pre-draft visit with Bills -
"Fuller had six interceptions in his college career with four forced fumbles and an impressive 23.5 tackles for loss. He put up a 4.49 40 time at the NFL combine along with a 38 ½-inch vertical, 10-foot eight-inch broad jump and a sub-seven second three cone drill (6.90)."
