Just when I thought I was done with all forms of mock drafts, they pull me back in. The 2014 NFL draft is just one day away, so to celebrate in a sick and twisted way, I mocked the first round of the draft. 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.

With seven players graded in the first round and 11 in the first two rounds, this is one of the best wide receiver classes I have ever scouted. Quality prospects with exciting playmaking potential can be found in each round of the 2014 draft.

Sammy Watkins is the premier talent in the group. He has a bright NFL future ahead of him. His value rivals that of top-tier prospects like AJ Green and Julio Jones, who were both selected in the top six of the 2011 NFL draft.

36 receivers in this year’s class have draftable grades, making this the year for teams to add weapons to their offenses.

I don’t recall a draft with more mixed opinions, projections and grades than this year’s, which should make for an exciting draft in May that is full of unpredictability. With one of the deepest draft classes I have evaluated, there is talent to be had in every round and ample opportunity for teams to fill holes and acquire talent.

The Buffalo Bills made a concerted effort to improve their wide receiver corps last year by drafting two players at the position in the first three rounds of the 2013 NFL Draft. In their rookie seasons, Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin both showed diverse, NFL-ready skill sets as pass-catchers and route runners.

Goodwin is a deep threat who also shows the ability to create in the open field and work underneath. Woods is a pure possession receiver who has great hands and knows how to get open. Despite their relative success, however, the Bills still do not have a wideout who provides the physicality and large target emblematic of a true No. 1 receiver.

The Bills could go a long way towards remedying the struggles they had offensively this season if they can land a safety valve and reliable red zone target for quarterback EJ Manuel. The following receivers could bring the size and physicality the Buffalo offense needs.
