Bills set to draft ninth overall in 2014

12/31/2013

After finishing with a 6-10 record, the Buffalo Bills will select ninth overall in the 2014 NFL draft.

With the draft pushed back two weeks -- it will be held May 8-10 -- it gives the Bills over four months to prepare to make their selection -- or trade it.

That's what happened last season, when the Bills traded down from No. 8 to No. 16, where they selected quarterback EJ Manuel.

Without any glaring holes on their roster -- at least at the moment -- the Bills could have flexibility in the first round in the upcoming draft.

Here is a look at the Bills' most recent first-round selections:

2013 -- QB EJ Manuel -- No. 16

2012 -- CB Stephon Gilmore -- No. 10

2011 -- DT Marcell Dareus -- No. 3

2010 -- RB C.J. Spiller -- No. 9

2009 -- DE Aaron Maybin -- No. 11

2009 -- C Eric Wood -- No. 28

2008 -- CB Leodis McKelvin -- No. 11
