2024 NFL Draft Team Needs: Depth Chart Holes, Prospect Matchups

Last month was a whirlwind of activity during NFL free agency, as hundreds of players switched teams since the new league year began on March 13.

The NFL draft is fast approaching — it will be held April 25-27 in Detroit and will be broadcast on ESPN, ABC and the ESPN app — and teams can address the remaining roster holes there. As front offices continue to prepare their draft boards, we asked our NFL Nation reporters to identify the three most obvious positional needs for all 32 franchises entering the draft, ordered from largest to smallest. NFL draft analysts Matt Miller and Jordan Reed have a prospect who could fill one of those needs outside of Round 1.

Let's start with the Bills, who need an influx of young talent after facing salary cap issues heading into this season.

Go to a team:
ARI | ATL | BAL | BUF | car | CHI | CIN
CLE | Valley | The | It | GB | HOU | IN
Jacks | KC | LV | LAC | LAR | MIA | N
NE | No | NYG | NYJ | PHI | PIT | SF
sea ​​| TB | Ten | WSH

AFC East

The first three requirements are: WR, S, DE. The Bills addressed most of their needs at the start of free agency, but those moves don't mean the Bills' biggest draft needs have changed much. Adding wide receiver room to replace Gabe Davis, who signed with the Jaguars, is key for the offense — even after signing Curtis Samuel. General manager Brandon Beane described Samuel as a versatile player who “can play outside, inside, in the backfield.” Infusing young talent at defense and defensive end will be important for the future as well. — Alaina Getzenberg

Opportunity to fulfill requirement outside Round 1: Austin Booker, DE, Kansas. The 6-foot-4, 240-pounder has a devastating first step for his pass-rush moves, and the Bills could learn from the best in Von Miller. –Miller
