Barring any trades, Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane will have six selections in the 2023 NFL Draft, which kicks off Thursday from Kansas City, MO.

The Bills’ first draft pick occurs at No. 27 late in the first round, and includes selections in the second (No. 59), third (No. 91), fourth (No. 130), fifth (No. 137) and sixth rounds (No. 205).

Today’s edition of Buffalo Rumblinks leads off by breaking down what positions rank as Buffalo’s biggest areas of need heading into the draft.

Ranking Buffalo’s NFL Draft needs
