For the Bills, the biggest draft question is simple: offense or defense? The answer isn't so straightforward. Buffalo has needs on both sides of the ball and could use an influx of young talent at several positions. Based on their 2010 season, it would seem the bigger need is on defense, where the Bills ranked 24th in the NFL in yards allowed and 28th in points allowed. Picking third overall, the Bills could take a top-flight cornerback such as LSU's Patrick Peterson, a pass-rushing outside 'backer like Von Miller of Texas A&M or a versatile defensive lineman in the mold of Alabama's Marcell Dareus. Yet it seems the team is interested in taking an offensive player, specifically a quarterback. Head coach Chan Gailey was asked about the team's chances of taking a QB with their first-round pick and said that the Bills would not rule out taking a player at any position, but followed that up by saying there would be no problem if Ryan Fitzpatrick was the Week One starter next fall. Bills executives dined with Auburn QB Cam Newton and his agents on March 7, the night before the Tigers' pro day, though Gailey did not attend the workout on March 8.
