The Buffalo Bills hit nearly all their marks and filled nearly every need they had going into the 2016 season especially with Reggie Ragland in the second round, which the Bills traded their original 2nd round pick and two fourth round picks to move up to get him. Ragland is undoubtedly one of the, if not the top linebacker prospect.
Their first round selection, Shaq Lawson, the 19th overall selection and Ragland give them two players that will make an immediate impact on the team.
“We had some holes. We had to make it over. If we didn’t, we’d be going into the season with nobody,” GM Doug Whaley said. “And we’re very excited with how we filled those holes.”

The Buffalo Bills dispatched of the Minnesota Vikings 20-16 Saturday to go to 2-0 in the preseason. Over that span the Bills offense have put up 64 points to their opponents 36.
Rookie QB EJ Manuel, who went 10-12 for 92 yards was injured but the coaching staff and Manuel himself are not sure when that occurred. Manuel woke up Saturday with a swollen knee. The injury may give slotted backup QB Kevin Kolb a chance to take the reins of the team.
“He will miss the remainder of the preseason and then be re-evaluated at that time,” Head Coach Doug Marrone said in a statement. “Kevin Kolb will be our starting quarterback for this weekend’s game at Washington.”
“There are a lot of variables that go into that: how Kevin is doing, how he is playing, how EJ comes back from the time off, a lot of speculation on that,” Marrone said. “I think I’ll be able to answer that question once we get to the day-to-day (part) and he’s out here practicing.”
The Bills next face the Washington Redskins on Saturday the 24th. Tickets are still available.
