The Buffalo Bills had three huge needs in this draft.

A quarterback.

A reliable outside receiver.

And a linebacker.

By the 16th pick of Round 2 on Friday night at Radio City Music Hall, the Bills had filled all three.

After taking quarterback E.J. Manuel on Thursday, the Bills selected wide receiver Robert Woods of Southern Cal with the 41st overall pick.

Five picks later, with a selection they obtained in Thursday’s Round 1 swap with the St. Louis Rams, the Bills took talented but problem-child-in-college linebacker Kiko Alonso of Oregon.

The Woods pick glitters. Right out of the box, the 6-foot, 201-pounder should be able to provide a legit outside, field-stretching threat the club has sorely lacked for years.

Woods ran the 40-yard dash in 4.42 and 4.43 seconds at the scouting combine, and caught 32 touchdowns as a Trojan. NFLdraftscout.com ranked him as the No. 3 wide receiver.
