2024 NFL draft team needs: Depth chart holes, prospect fits


There was a whirlwind of activity during NFL free agency last month, as hundreds of players have switched teams since the new league year began on March 13. But as seasoned NFL observers know, team building is far from over.

The NFL draft is fast approaching — it will take place April 25-27 in Detroit and be broadcast on ESPN, ABC and the ESPN app — and teams can address remaining roster holes there. As front offices firm up their draft boards in preparation, we asked our NFL Nation reporters to identify the three most glaring positional needs for all 32 franchises entering the draft, ordered from biggest to smallest. Then we had NFL draft analysts Matt Miller and Jordan Reid name a prospect who could fill one of those needs outside of Round 1.

Let’s get started with the Bills, who need an influx of young talent after facing salary cap issues heading into this offseason.

SEA | TB | TEN | WSH

Top three needs: WR, S, DE. The Bills addressed most of their needs in some capacity early in free agency, but those moves don’t mean the Bills’ biggest draft needs have changed much. Adding to the wide receiver room to replace Gabe Davis, who signed with the Jaguars, is key for the offense — even after signing Curtis Samuel. General manager Brandon Beane described Samuel as a versatile player who can “play outside, inside, backfield.” Getting an infusion of young talent at safety and defensive end will be important for the future, as well. — Alaina Getzenberg

Prospect to fill a need outside Round 1: Austin Booker, DE, Kansas. The 6-foot-4, 240-pounder has a devastating first step to his pass-rush moves and could learn from one of the best ever in Von Miller with the Bills. — Miller
