An exciting weekend in Canton for the Buffalo Bills, highlighted by Andre Reed’s enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, has come to an end.

Sunday night’s Hall of Fame Game wasn’t quite as enthusing for the Bills, who lost 17-13 to the New York Giants, but the first preseason game should always come with its ups and downs. The good news for the Bills is that the loss, even though they tried to win, won’t matter at all when the regular-season games begin.

It’s important to remember that just one game into the preseason—there’s still four more exhibition games to go but the games that matter begin—it’s still way too early to jump to conclusions about any players. Young, inexperienced players are expected to have some hiccups early in the preseason.

With that being said, there were members of the Bills whose performances from Sunday night deserve praise, while there were others who need to be better to make positive contributions his fall.

The Buffalo Bills made seven total selections in the 2014 NFL draft. The team wheeled and dealed over the course of the three-day draft and added a wide receiver, three offensive linemen, two linebackers and a cornerback.

Buffalo’s aggressiveness in the first round shows that the team is in a win-now mode. The Bills have a clear objective this season: make the playoffs for the first time since 1999.

The theme going into this draft was getting EJ Manuel help. On paper, the draft was a success. The team added the top wide receiver in the class while bulking up an offensive line that gave up 48 sacks in 2013. In addition to their draft picks, Buffalo also traded for Philadelphia Eagles running back Bryce Brown, a player the Bills have coveted for more than a year. Manuel has all the weapons you could ask for.

We take a look at each of the Bills’ selections and assess how well the team did in addressing their needs and maximizing value.

After utilizing their first two selections on offensive players, the Buffalo Bills turned their attention to the defensive side of the ball in the third round, investing the 73rd pick in the 2014 NFL draft on Louisville inside linebacker Preston Brown.

A three-year starter in the middle of the Louisville defense, Preston Brown has been a consistent contributor. He had one of the best games of his career on the biggest stage of his career when he had 13 tackles with 1.5 tackles for loss in the Cardinals’ Sugar Bowl victory over the Florida Gators at the end of his junior season.
