NEW YORK — As the second round unfolds and teams make their picks, overall strategies become more transparent. Such is the case for the Bills, who drafted CB Aaron Williams No. 34 overall, one day after adding DT Marcell Dareus to a defense that finished last in the NFL against the run.
NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora noted that the Bills told key players in the organization before the lockout that they were comfortable with Ryan Fitzpatrick as their starting QB and the focus of the draft would be defense. Through two rounds, GM Buddy Nix and coach Chan Gailey have been true to their word.
While the Bills could take a quarterback in the later rounds, call this job security for Fitzpatrick.
