ESPN draft analyst Jordan Reid went through all 32 teams and listed a prospect to watch for each at the NFL Scouting Combine this week.

Here's who he picked for the Bills and why:

Draft capital: First round (25th); second round (57th); one in third round; one in fourth round; one in fifth round; two in sixth round; two in seventh round

Positional needs: Cornerback, wide receiver, defensive tackle, edge rusher, backup quarterback.

Notable free agents: DE Jerry Hughes, DE Mario Addison, DE Bryan Cox Jr., CB Levi Wallace, QB Mitchell Trubisky, WR Emmanuel Sanders, WR Isaiah McKenzie, RB Matt Breida

It will be a successful offseason if: The Bills are able to add depth on the defensive side of the ball, both in the secondary and up front, and provide quarterback Josh Allen with additional downfield options. Other priorities include signing wide receiver Stefon Diggs to a long-term deal, which would ensure that Allen's top target is on the roster for years to come, and figuring out the future of linebacker Tremaine Edmunds with his significant cap hit ($12.7 million) in 2022. -- Alaina Getzenberg

Prospect to watch at the combine: Kyler Gordon, CB, Washington

Gordon could be the No. 2 cornerback opposite Tre'Davious White. He checks a lot of the boxes the Bills have looked for in the past, and he could be available late in Round 1. -- Reid
