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.

After trading out of the top 10 in last year’s NFL draft, the Buffalo Bills might be looking to move up this year.

At least that’s what longtime NFL reporter Dan Pompei is hearing. In this week’s “Read Option” column for Bleacher Report, Pompei wrote that the Houston Texans are “trying hard to deal the first pick in the draft,” and that “they might have a trade partner in the Bills, who appear interested in moving up.”

Monday’s on-field portion of the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine featured the draft’s best defensive line and linebacker prospects as the depth of the draft continued to prove itself in workouts. While no prospect was able to officially record a sub-4.5 second 40-yard dash, there was plenty of speed and athleticism on display alongside a few disappointments.
