Going into the season, BBD editors Dan Hope and Ryan Talbot ranked the Buffalo Bills’ training camp roster from top to bottom, and at the midseason mark, they went back over the 53-man roster at the time to evaluate the first half of the season. With the 2013 Bills season now completely in the books, it was time to take one more look at the 2013 roster and determine which players were the most, or least, productive this year.

The 53 players ranked are based on the team’s final roster with the exception of wide receiver Cordell Roberson, who was signed prior to the team’s last game to replace strong safety Aaron Williams, who was placed on injured reserve for the final game only. These rankings were intended to evaluate the players only on their performance in the 2013 season, and not to predict which players will be back with the Bills or make the biggest impact on the team in 2014.

Confession: I’m obsessed with numbers.

Perhaps it’s the Math teacher in me, but numbers intrigue me. Whenever there’s an opportunity to look at things using numbers, count me in.

A few months back here at Buffalo Bills Draft, I examined the draft success of each AFC East team between 2008-2012. Now three weeks into the season, I wanted to evaluate each roster’s 53-man rosters. How many players were actually drafted by their teams or signed by them out of college as undrafted free agents? What’s the breakdown of players by draft round? Which players have provided the most value to their teams?

Let’s take a look at each AFC East team and how their current 53-man roster was built.

The Buffalo Bills set their initial 53-man roster on Tuesday when they filled their final roster spot with the signing of kicker Dan Carpenter. While the Buffalo Bills could make more changes, even before their season-opening game versus the New England Patriots on Sunday, the Bills have built the framework of what their roster will look like for the 2013 NFL season.

Also on Tuesday, the Bills released an unofficial depth chart in their weekly media release, which gives at least a framework on how the lineups will be structured for Sunday’s game.


Buffalo Bills Fill 53-Man Roster By Signing Dan Carpenter

The Buffalo Bills’ 53-man roster will almost certainly have changes from week to week throughout the regular season, but at least for now, the Buffalo Bills have set their first 53-man roster of the season. They made the final move to fill their roster Tuesday with the signing of recently well-traveled kicker Dan Carpenter.

The move to sign Carpenter came as a surprise when initially reported, as rookie sixth-round pick Dustin Hopkins had an impressive preseason to beat out longtime veteran Rian Lindell in training camp. The move came as a necessity, however, after Hopkins suffered a groin injury in practice, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.


Ryan Talbot’s Final 53-Man Buffalo Bills Roster Projection

The Buffalo Bills’ preseason is over and after numerous injuries, it’s safe to say that Bills fans are ready for the regular season. Before we look ahead to Buffalo’s Week 1 matchup with the Patriots, the team needs to trim its roster from 75 to 53. Buffalo has until 6 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 31 to make their roster moves.

My roster projections below are based only upon the team’s current roster. That said, it’s almost a certainty that the Bills will add a few players that are released from other NFL teams.
