When the Buffalo Bills opted not to select a single offensive lineman in the seven-round NFL draft last April, it signaled to many that the Bills may be content with their current offensive line situation despite the loss of guards Andy Levitre and Chad Rinehart.
Since the draft, however, the Bills have signed free-agent Doug Legursky from the Pittsburgh Steelers to compete for the starting left guard job, a position where the Bills have an open competition for the starting job. With the offensive line in a state of transition, I feel that the Bills are poised to select an offensive lineman as early as Day 2 of the 2014 NFL draft.
One 2014 draft prospect to keep an eye on this upcoming season is Notre Dame’s offensive tackle Zack Martin. Martin plays left tackle at Notre Dame, but projects better as a guard in the NFL. He has several qualities that make him an ideal fit for Buffalo.
