Welcome back to One Bills Drive
By Mike Rodak
Welcome back (again) to One Bills Drive, where the Buffalo Bills will make their final selections of the 2014 draft (noon, ESPN).
Here's what to know:
Four picks slated: The Bills have four picks remaining in this draft: No. 109 (fourth round), No. 149 (fifth round), No. 153 (fifth round), and No. 224 (seventh round).
Top needs: At this point in the draft, teams aren't drafting to fill holes in their starting lineup. They're drafting to add depth to their roster and that could come at virtually any position. However, if the Bills were to target specific positions, two stand out above any other: running back and defensive end. Boston College's Andre Williams and Baylor's Lache Seastrunk are among the top running backs available. Alabama's Ed Stinson and Virgina Tech's James Gayle are some of the top names left on the board at defensive end.
Faster pace: Teams will have five minutes on the clock in the final four rounds. The draft is expected to wrap up around 5 or 6 p.m. Once it ends, the undrafted free agent frenzy will begin. The Bills will have some roster space that they can fill out with college free agents.
