Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

Texas A&M has had at least one player drafted among the top 10 picks in each of the past three drafts, including two offensive linemen. Another lineman, senior offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi, could extend that streak in 2015.

Saturday, March 22nd, 2014

The Buffalo Bills have been active in free agency, adding starters and/or depth at running back, tight end, offensive guard, linebacker, cornerback and special teams. The team might still be actively pursuing free agents, as evidenced by Kenny Britt’s recent visit to One Bills Drive, but any signings now will be few and far between, which should mean is adjusting its needs and determining who it should target in this year’s NFL draft.

2014 Buffalo Bills Draft Projections: “3 for 3″ Post-Combine Mock

As the name would suggest, Pro Football Focus’ “3 For 3” mock draft series is to consist of three projections, each three rounds, of the 2014 NFL draft. In a more accurate and realistic simulation than one person writing a mock draft on his own, the selections are made by 32 football writers, one representing each team, who select each of their respective team’s picks in the first three rounds.

I have the privilege of selecting for the Bills in each of the three mocks, the first of which was held over the past week following this year’s NFL Scouting Combine. Personally, I came away thrilled with all three of my selections for Buffalo, as I feel as though I got terrific value on all of them, but I’ll have to let you the reader be the judge.

The National Football League is officially in its 2014 offseason, meaning that the entire league (well, maybe not quite yet for the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks) is shifting its attention to how it can make its team better for next season.

While free agency and possibly trades will be an important step, there is no bigger opportunity to improve a roster than the annual NFL draft, which will be held May 8-10 this year. The Buffalo Bills, by virtue of their 6-10 record, hold the No. 9 overall selection in the first round of this year’s draft.

A top-10 pick is always a valuable commodity, and the Buffalo Bills sit in a good position. The Bills should have the opportunity to draft a very good talent who provides an immediate upgrade at that slot, and although they have some needs, they have a roster well-rounded enough to have the flexibility to draft for the best player rather than the biggest roster hole.

We won’t know for sure who will be available at the No. 9 overall pick until the No. 8 overall pick has been announced on May 8, but there will be no shortage of speculation around the pick nonetheless. The Bills should be able to come up with nine worthy candidates to be their first-round pick; the following nine options (plus one, see end of page 2) might be their best.

Jake Matthews vs. Greg Robinson: Who is the 2014 NFL Draft’s Top Offensive Tackle?

Friday, January 31st, 2014

Is Texas A&M’s Jake Matthews the top offensive tackle in the 2014 NFL Draft? He has some serious competition from Auburn’s Greg Robinson. (Photo: Thomas Campbell — USA Today Sports)

BBD Staff Writer: Joe Marino

Until Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson declared for the 2014 NFL draft as a redshirt sophomore, Texas A&M senior offensive tackle Jake Matthews was the consensus top offensive tackle in the class. Now there is an apparent split among scouts and draftniks as to who should be the first tackle off the board.
