The Buffalo Bills were the busiest team in free agency, adding 11 players while addressing many of their biggest areas of need, among them: bolstering the offensive line, improving the wide receivers, adding a tight end, a cornerback, and a kickoff/punt return standout, and potentially bringing in running back help.

On the latest episode of Billieve: A Buffalo Bills Fan Podcast, now that the initial wave of free agency has passed, host John Boccacino and co-host Anthony Marino discuss what the Bills should do with the No. 9 overall pick in this April’s NFL Draft.

The Bills have been linked to Houston’s Ed Oliver, a talented and disruptive edge rusher. Oliver would most definitely boost a pass rush that ranked 26th in sacks during the 2018 NFL season.

Buffalo has also been associated with Ole Miss wide receiver D.K. Metcalf, the freakishly talented wide receiver, as well as Iowa’s sensational tight-end duo of T.J. Hockenson and Noah Fant.

Or the Bills could focus on protecting second-year quarterback Josh Allen by selecting one of the draft’s talented offensive linemen, specifically tackles Jonah Williams (Alabama) and Jawaan Taylor (Florida).

What do you think, Bills fans? Should Beane focus on an edge rusher with the No. 9 pick, or should the team target a receiver like Metcalf, Fant, or Hockenson? What about the offensive line, should Buffalo add someone like a Taylor or a Williams to protect Allen?
