Champs have sense of urgency
President/GM Tom Donahoe has shown patience and vision in his approach. The past two drafts have seen the Bills use first-round picks on two players (RB Willis McGahee, 2003; QB J.P. Losman, 2004) who would not make significant contributions as rookies.
But with McGahee having a breakout year in 2004 and with Losman set to take over the reigns for the departed Drew Bledsoe (Cowboys), Donahoe and the Bills are reaping the reward.
In all reality, the Bills don't have many pressing needs. There remains a strong possibility that the Bills will get a deal done to acquire OT L.J. Shelton from the Cardinals for disgruntled RB Travis Henry. If that's the case, the Bills' top need will be erased. If not, the team will probably be forced to use its first pick of the upcoming draft No. 55, second round on a replacement for the departed LOT Jonas Jennings (49ers).
