After making a one of the biggest splashes of the first round in trading up to select Clemson WR Sammy Watkins, the Buffalo Bills enter Day 2 of the 2014 NFL draft set to select with the 41st and 73rd overall selections on Friday. Surprisingly, none of Buffalo’s 2014 draft picks were used in the move up to select Watkins.

Over the previous five drafts from 2009 to 2013, the Bills have had a great deal of success with their second-round picks, having selected Kiko Alonso, Robert Woods, Cordy Glenn, Aaron Williams, Jairus Byrd and Andy Levitre over that span. There is plenty of talent available that could help the Bills find another gem and fill needs with their Day 2 draft choices.

I’m never quite sure whether I should consider myself a member of #DraftTwitter—I’ve probably been branded in whether I like it or not—but I do enjoy participating in the online community mock drafts I get invited to participate in each year.

After two additional weeks of speculation, through which many have expressed agony and anxiety, the eve of the 2014 NFL Draft is finally upon us. And yet, even with the extra 14 days to figure it all out, it still seems as though no one—even the teams themselves—really knows what’s going to happen when the draft begins Thursday night at 8 p.m. ET.

Despite everyone’s best efforts, there will ultimately be trades made and players picked throughout the draft at spots no one saw coming. Nonetheless, here is my final shot at educatedly projecting who will go where with all 256 picks of this year’s selection meeting.

Using the latest draft talk and look at team needs, I put together my first and only full first-round projection for the 2014 draft.
