AFC Notes: Bills, Broncos, Titans, Dolphins

In an interview with NFL Network this week, Bills head coach Rex Ryan admitted that his roster isn’t particularly deep at several positions. As Mike Rodak of details, though, Ryan is confident that Buffalo will be able to replenish those spots in the draft.

“We don’t have a whole lot of depth right now, so we’re going to have to do a great job in the draft, which we will,” Ryan said. “[Bills GM] Doug Whaley is an outstanding evaluator of talent. We have to hit in the draft, there is no doubt, but I think there are some opportunities there to help us.”

Let’s round up a few more items from across the AFC…

  • Despite the departures of Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler, it’s not time to panic for Broncos fans, according to Jason La Canfora of, who writes that GM John Elway still has plenty of quarterback options available. As La Canfora outlines, Denver ranked in the bottom 10 in the NFL in most passing categories in 2015, meaning the team doesn’t have to land a star QB to match or exceed last year’s production.
  • Ohio State director of player personnel Mark Pantoni announced today (on Twitter) that Titans head coach Mike Mularkey, GM Jon Robinson, and defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau were at the school to work out five Buckeyes prospects. Albert Breer of the NFL Network tweets that Tennessee was getting a closer look at DE Joey Bosa, LB Darron Lee, S Vonn Bell, S Tyvis Powell, and DL Adolphus Washington
  • As they prepare for the 2016 draft, the Dolphins‘ top priority in the first two days of that draft will be landing a starting cornerback, writes Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald. According to Salguero, cornerback is one of two positions – along with running back – that is a “must-have” for the team.

  1. Any traction on trading a 6th for Brian Hoyer to compete with Mark Sanchez while they sit Dak for a year?

  2. jason

    Miami needs….. A corner a rb 2 guards and 3 line backers.

  3. Sam Robinson

    The Broncos bringing back nine defensive starters reminds of the Seahawks and will be a boon for whomever takes the snaps next season, especially when the Broncos’ schedule includes eight games against the Southern-division teams. Hoyer seems like he would be a good short-term fit. Won’t come in at close to Fitzpatrick’s price and showed some promise in a difficult Texans situation last season. Save for Brock Osweiler’s two prime-time games, and Manning’s midseason peak against the Packers, Hoyer was a better quarterback than what the Broncos deployed last season. He’d be a safer and cheaper option than Kaepernick, obviously.
