Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix understands that the team he now runs has needs at a number of positions.
And his hope over the next couple of days is that he can find some players in the NFL draft who will fill those spots.
But when it came time to execute the ninth overall pick in the first round Thursday night, Nix could not ignore what he believes to be the most pressing issue for the Bills.

Ryan Miller was the Buffalo Sabres’ difference maker all regular-season long. Turns out his role hasn’t changed in the playoffs.
Miller was remarkable in making 38 saves — including 23 in the second period — in the Sabres’ 2-1 playoff-opening victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night
“When he’s at the top of his game, we’re a very, very difficult team to play against,” captain Craig Rivet said. “Tonight, Ryan showed when he’s playing well and he’s confident, I think you see the confidence you see the team plays with.”
That confidence was apparent in Rivet’s performance.
After Miller helped the Sabres weather the Bruins’ offensive storm for most of the second period, Rivet regained the momentum by scoring on a slap shot from the right circle to break a 1-1 tie with under 6 minutes left.

For most teams, starting pitching is the top item on the shopping list every winter. The Red Sox hope to be stocked for years to come.
“You can’t have an elite organization without starting pitching,” general manager Theo Epstein said after signing Josh Beckett to a four-year, $68 million contract extension Monday. “And for us, there’s the added expectation of having starting pitchers who can succeed in the AL East. It’s hard to acquire. It’s hard to draft and develop.”
Now that Beckett, who turns 30 on May 15, is signed through 2014, the Red Sox have signed or control their top four starting pitchers, including John Lackey, Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz, through 2014.
“I guess I look at things differently that most people,” said Beckett, who made the deal possible by not insisting on a fifth year. “A lot of people look at what they lost, or what they didn’t get. I’m looking at what I gained here — four more years of stability, four more years with an organization that you know is going to put a competitive team on the field. That can’t be underestimated. A season gets long when you’re losing 90 games.”
