The month of July is upon us, which means that we are finally within a month of the opening of Buffalo Bills training camp. While the final weeks until training camp can be the most boring weeks of the football calendar, we here at Buffalo Bills Draft will try to whet your appetite for football season with a continued emphasis of unique and thought-provoking content previewing the Buffalo Bills season and 2014 NFL draft classes.
Before we move forward into our July content, let’s take a look back at the NFL Draft, Bills and AFC East content that made up the final week of June here at BBD and around the NFL Draft Sites Network.
2014 NFL Draft Prospects to Watch
- In the spirit of last week’s NBA Draft, I fully broke down the game of Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins. He is set to be the NFL’s next “basketball prototype” tight end and is a likely first-round selection should he declare for the 2014 NFL draft.
- Joe Marino explained why Stanford inside linebacker Shayne Skov, once considered an early-round draft prospect, may not even be a draft selection if he fails to bounce back from a disappointing junior season.
- Joseph Curtis brings your attention to the top sleeper prospects in the Big Ten. Let us know what other Big Ten prospects we’re still sleeping on!
- One of the Buffalo Bills’ top priorities in the 2014 NFL Draft is likely to be adding another edge rusher for their new hybrid defense. Detroit Lions Draft’s Darren Page broke down the 11 best senior edge-rushing prospects in the draft class.
- Justin Higdon of Draft Browns took a terrific look at Ohio State’s top eight prospects for the 2014 NFL draft.
Examining the AFC East
- Glenn Gifford ranked the Bills’ top five offensive skill-position players. Check out Glenn’s choices, and let us know which players would make your top-5 list!
- Eric Samulski examined the two biggest questions facing each AFC East defense this summer.
- With former Patriots star tight end Aaron Hernandez jailed and charged with murder, and Rob Gronkowski recovering from back surgery, NE Patriots Draft’s Oliver Thomas took a closer at New England’s depth at the tight end position.
Looking Back at History
- Ryan Talbot ranked the top five Buffalo Bills legends who have not yet been inducted into the team’s Wall of Fame.
