The Bills are riding the NFL's longest-running playoff drought -- having gone 14 seasons without a postseason appearance -- and own another top-10 draft pick. A top-flight tight end for last year's top pick EJ Manuel to throw to would be an option, as could adding more pieces to a promising defense.
Andre Williams, RB, Boston College
Feb. 26: Bills were first to interview BC back
Running back isn't the Bills' most pressing need, but adding depth to the position appears to be in the offing in Buffalo. At the NFL Scouting Combine, the first team to interview Williams -- who rushed for a FBS-leading 2,177 yards in 2013 -- was the Bills.
The Dolphins endured some drama along their offensive line in 2013, and figure to be looking to rebuild that area this offseason. The team also figures to be on the lookout for an every-down running back to line up behind Ryan Tannehill.
Michael Sam, DE, Missouri
Feb. 22: Sam: I'd be excited to join Dolphins
Sam, the NFL's first openly gay draft prospect, was at complete ease answering questions from a massive media contingent during his availability at the NFL Scouting Combine. One of those questions centered on the Dolphins, whose ugly locker room culture was laid bare in Ted Wells' independent report.
New England Patriots
The Patriots were decimated at the tight end position in 2013 due to injuries to Rob Gronkowski and legal problems for Aaron Hernandez. The team could be looking to shore up that suddenly sketchy position. Offensive line, defensive line and cornerback also appear to be areas of need for a team that figures to remain in Super Bowl contention in 2014.
Kenny Guiton, QB, Ohio State
March 7: Pats schedule workout with Guiton
Guiton, who filled in admirably for Buckeyes' starting QB Braxton Miller early last season, said that he has one individual workout scheduled, with the New England Patriots on March 26, according to a tweet by Bleacher Report's Dan Hope. Guiton played in 21 games with two starts at Ohio State, passing for 893 yards, 16 touchdowns and four interceptions. He threw a school-record six TD passes in a Sept. 21 start vs. Florida A&M.
Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
March 5: Patriots meet with Evans
Evans has talked to the Patriots, who have a need at the receiver position. However, Evans also believes that he will be a top-10 draft pick -- recent mock drafts on NFL.com have Evans going anywhere from No. 9 to No. 13. That would require the Patriots -- who own the No. 29 overall pick in the first round -- to make an aggressive move up via a trade.
Jared Abbrederis, WR, Wisconsin
March 5: Abbrederis seen talking to Patriots representative
Abbrederis was seen talking to a representatives from the Colts and Patriots at Wisconsin's pro day. The Patriots are on the lookout for playmakers for Tom Brady to throw to, and the two-time first-team All-Big Ten selection from Wisconsin could fill a vital role as a No. 3 or 4 receiver in the NFL.
Marqise Lee, WR, USC
Feb. 28: Lee received interest from the Patriots
Adding a dynamic receiving threat is an offseason priority for the Patriots, and one such talent that has intrigued the team is Lee. The Patriots showed a lot of interest in the receiver at the NFL Scouting Combine, a league source told NESN.com.
AJ McCarron, QB, Alabama
Feb. 21: McCarron would love to learn under Brady
If McCarron has to ride a bench to begin his pro career, he can't think of a better place to do it than New England. After all, having played for a Bill Belichick disciple in Nick Saban, and having won three national championships in five years at the school, the winning ways in Foxborough, Mass., would be far more familiar than, for instance, the weather.
Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech
Feb. 20: Amaro describes impressive interview with Patriots
As the Patriots seek to replace Aaron Hernandez as their slot tight end this offseason, Amaro's name keeps coming up as a possible answer. Most recently, by Amaro himself. Amaro revealed that the Patriots interviewed him at the NFL Scouting Combine. "It was good. They broke my tape down, and it looked like they liked me a lot," Amaro said.
Ra'Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota
Feb. 20: Mayock: Hageman also a possibility for Pats
On a conference call with reporters, NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock broke down the Patriots' options at pick No. 29 in the first round of the draft, saying, "(Ra'Shede) Hageman from Minnesota is the big question mark there. If he's still on the board, because he's an explosive kid, he could play a couple different slots and coach (Bill) Belichick likes those versatile guys."
New York Jets
The Jets feature a talented defense, but cornerback might be one area to shore up on that unit. Otherwise, the offensive line needs work as could the receiving corps. Will the team also jump back into the market for a quarterback in the 2014 draft?
Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State
March 3: King: Cooks a good fit for Jets
MMQB.com's Peter King tweeted that the Jets would be "a perfect landing spot, in value and need, for Cooks." Cooks, once thought to be a late first-round or early second-round pick, boosted his stock with a strong showing at the combine, including a 40-yard dash of 4.33 seconds, which was the best time of all wide receivers.
Feb. 20: Mayock: Jets could have pick of WR litter
On a conference call with reporters, NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock broke down the Jets' options at pick No. 18 in the first round of the draft, saying, "If you are sitting there at 18, I think you can have any one of three receivers sitting there. Marqise Lee fits in that side, then helps in the return game, versus the two big-bodied guys, (Mike) Evans and (Kelvin) Benjamin. I think all three of them are talented enough to work with that group."
Michael Sam, DE, Missouri
Feb. 10: Smith: Jets a good fit for Sam
NFL Media analyst Matt "Money" Smith says, "the New York Jets ... considering the level of talent on that unit, which includes Sam's former teammate at Mizzou, Sheldon Richardson, who just won defensive rookie of the year honors."
