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.

The wide receivers, running backs, and quarterbacks took center stage on Day 2 of the on-field portion of the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine on Sunday, with the receivers’ light shining the brightest of the trio of positions.

In one of the deepest wide receiver classes in recent memory, several top prospects solidified their draft status, second-tier players made a push up the board, and some late-round guys had excellent on-field showings.

With version 1.0 of my Buffalo Bills mock draft being more than one month old, it’s time for another look at how Buffalo’s draft could stack up. It’s early February, so it’s safe to say there’s still plenty of uncertainty when it comes to the 2014 NFL draft. In general, teams will have a better ideas of how their draft boards stack up after some of their roster holes get filled via free agency.

For the sake of this mock draft, I’ll make a few free agency predictions. First, I think the Bills will resign Jairus Byrd long-term or replace him with a fellow free agent (T.J. Ward and Chris Clemons are two solid options that come to mind). Buffalo could also add a left guard in free agency along with a veteran defensive lineman.

If they can address those needs with veteran signings, here’s one way they could continue building their roster with their seven picks in this year’s draft.

Big Targets Produce Big Results: Potential Bills Wide Receivers in 2014 NFL Draft

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.
