Can the Buffalo Bills break their three-year 6-10 streak? The answer to that question will likely depend on the answer to another question: Can the Buffalo Bills hit a home run in the 2014 draft?
It is the second draft for head coach Doug Marrone and general manager Doug Whaley. Marrone was brought over from Syracuse in advance of the 2013 NFL calendar, and Whaley took over after former Bills GM Buddy Nix stepped down. The two men began to put their fingerprints on the roster last offseason, and that process continues this offseason.
The Bills have six selections in this year's draft, one short of their seven stock picks after trading a sixth-round pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for wide receiver Mike Williams in April. With fewer picks than usual, the Bills could elect to trade back from the ninth overall selection to acquire additional picks, as they did last year when they moved down to the 16th overall pick.
That being said, the Bills have not made any major noise in the first round since 2006, when they traded back into the first round to grab defensive tackle John McCargo 26th overall.
So, in an effort to get everyone up to speed on the players to watch and the team's selections, let's take you through all the information you need to know before the draft, including a look at some names to watch in each round.
