Updating Buffalo Bills' draft position
By Mike Rodak
Despite their second consecutive win, the Buffalo Bills are still projected to select ninth overall in the 2014 NFL draft.
With a 6-9 record, the Bills are tied with the Tennessee Titans and New York Giants in the draft order. Based on ESPN.com's projection, which uses current strength of schedule (instead of projected strength of schedule) as the tiebreaker, the Bills move ahead of both of those teams.
The 2014 draft will be held May 8-10, so we'll have more than four months to discuss prospects for the Bills once their season ends on Dec. 29.
But for a team that is set to finish in last place in the AFC East, the Bills have surprisingly few glaring holes to fill on their roster. That could give them more flexibility than other teams set to pick near the top of this draft.
