The Buffalo Bills have had a pretty decent off-season and free agency all be told, with their offense getting significantly better.
The Bills managed to bring in one of the best running backs in the entire National Football League in LeSean McCoy, explosive wide receiver Percy Harvin and up and coming tight end Charles Clay, to go along with the exceptional Sammy Watkins.
But one area that the Bills have struggled with for some time now is the quarterback spot. But that could be set to change at this year's draft.

Bills General Manager Doug Whaley indicated that the Bills could take a quarterback in the second or third round of this month’s draft, according to ESPN. And Whaley said he doesn’t think the drop-off at quarterback after the top two — Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota — is as great as people are making it out to be.
“I think there will be a run on some guys maybe in the second and third round that are a little lower. But, again, I don’t think the drop-off is as big as a lot of people are saying,” Whaley said.
The Bills don't have a pick in the first round of this year's draft thanks to the trade that saw them net Sammy Watkins in the draft last year, and would have to wait until the second day of proceedings to pick up a quarterback.
After Mariota and Winston there is a whole host of players who cold be the third quarterback off the board and all of them could be available when the Bills are finally on the board.
Brett Hundley from UCLA seemed like the stonewall third best quarterback but recently Garret Grayson of Colorado State and Bryce Petty out of Baylor have worked themselves in to the conversation thanks to their strong arms.
The Bills brought in Matt Cassell from the Minnesota Vikings during free agency, but neither him or E.J Manuel are real long term solutions at Buffalo and it seems that a new QB could be under center at Ralph Wilson Stadium in 2015.
