So we move our 2010 NFL season preview to the AFC East, and we start there with the Buffalo Bills. So here we have a team that needs a lot of work. They have three RB’s and that is probably a problem. They just spent big bucks on CJ Spiller, the 10th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. Trent Edwards is the QB, and I think that is a problem, and even though they have new management I think this is a team that needs a big time rebuilding effort.
The offense will be led by Edwards, and I think that is also a problem. They do have Lee Evans at WR, but no one to play opposite him. With Fred Jackson, Marshawn Lynch, and Spiller in the backfield one of these guys needs to go. The likeliest candidate is Lynch as he is something of a malcontent. The O line is full of young prospects, but they need time to gel.
The defense will run a base 3-4 and I am unconvinced they have the right personnel to run this defense effectively. I do think that Aaron Maybin will have a greater impact at OLB, than he did as a rookie playing DE. Even though they took DT Torrell Troup in the second round of last April’s draft, I have to question if the have a true NT on the roster. The secondary looks to be pretty good, except for a hole at Strong Safety.
Rian Lindell is this team’s kicker, and Brian Moorman will be the punter. I think they will utilize Spiller as a kick returner and Roscoe Parrish as the punt returner. Overall I have to say that the special teams are an above average unit.
