I prefer to get a stud QB rather than a stud LB.  I don't think the prospects available when we pick will have a good chance to become great.  Hence my vote for LB.  If it were a great QB draft, then my vote would be QB.  Both are needed.  QB is much more important in turning this team around.

Yeah its a tough draft there seems to be a lot of QB's in 2-5 Barkley, Nassib, Bray, Dysert, Manuel etc. but not a lot in the 1st.

But it lloks to be very defensive heavy in the 1st

I agree, but I don't think that guy is in this draft, so why not grab the impact LB?

We can get our QB after the coming 3-13 season.

By impact LB do you mean a 3 down guy who can do it all or like a pass rusher coming off the edge

QB, but we need 2 or 3 LBs very badly (pending FA pickups).  WR is needed too.

I wonder how many votes "Fire Buddy Nix before the draft" would have got if added to this thread
at the start?

Drafting for need, at certain positions is one matter. Having a competent successful GM  doing the evaluations is
even more critical.

We need LB's badly!! bar far the worst group on the team, we also need another receiver. Titus Young just got released he would definitely be a nice pick-up!

I used to believe that you can win in the NFL with a solid team and a mediocre QB. I no longer believe that. I think that the QB is the most important position and Fitzpatrick cannot be the starter. Until the Bills find the guy that can, everything else is pointless.
