Plugging the holes: AFC East
Explorations of need in New England, New York, Buffalo and Miami
As we near the draft, Football Outsiders is taking a look at the major holes in the roster of each NFL team by division. Here now: the AFC East.
Biggest hole: Offensive line
The surprising retirement of offensive tackle Brad Butler at age 26 left a bad Buffalo line in complete shambles. The Bills currently have 11 offensive linemen on the roster, only four of whom have started as many as 10 games in a season.
Conventional wisdom says Buffalo might take Clausen at No. 9. Does this article say he might get his head ripped off behind that O-line? Kinda. Read on -- and learn more about the whole AFC East and their needs in the process. Ya gotta be an ESPN Insider, tho.
