Most of the Bills' moves in the 2013 NFL draft were players who will improve the team's passing game in some capacity.

1st round - QB EJ Manuel

2nd Round - WR Robert Woods

3rd Round - WR Marquise Goodwin

7th Round - TE Chris Gragg

Undrafted Free Agent - WR Da'rick Rogers (who was a potential first two-day prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft)

Manuel will join quarterback Kevin Kolb on the quarterback roster and compete for the starting position. Tight End Chris Gragg will join Scott Chandler and Lee Smith during the course of the season. Chandler had knee surgery this winter and Smith is mostly a blocking tight end, so Gragg will see a lot of targets during the course of the season.

The three aforementioned WRs will join Stevie Johnson on the quest to making the Buffalo Bills a more dangerous passing team. We all know the Bills have a great rushing offense, but RBs C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson are versatile enough to include in the passing game as well.

Dar'rick Rogers had a monster OTA and will probably be one of the key contributing players as the season moves on. Wide receiver Robert Woods is expected to make a case for the number one receiver spot over current primary receiver Stevie Johnson, and Marquise Goodwin will be a very good slot receiver.

It seems that the Bills have all of their bases covered in their offense, aside from their O-line. They have two great RBs for versatility and back up for  injury, plenty of deep talented receivers to have spread packages and to sustain the impact of injuries, and two qualified quarterbacks who head coach Doug Marrone feels fits into his offensive scheme.
