After drafting Sammy Watkins in Round 1, the Bills must turn their focus to Day 2 of the draft.

Draftniks around the country began tearing up their mock drafts when the Buffalo Bills traded up to the No. 4 overall pick Thursday night to select Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins. But now, after a wild first round of the 2014 NFL draft, the Bills must get refocused and continue bolstering their roster with their second- and third-round picks on Day 2.

If there was any question that the Bills were focused on making a playoff push in 2014, they made that clear Thursday night by trading their first- and fourth-round picks in the 2015 draft to make the move up from the ninth overall pick.

With pressure to start winning more games immediately, and fewer draft picks to work with in the future, the stakes have now been raised on the rest of Buffalo’s 2014 draft selections. If they fail to find productive players in key rounds of this year’s draft, they won’t have as much to work with next year to make up for it.

Who can the Bills land in the draft’s next two rounds to make this year’s selection meeting one to remember? In a draft class that has consistently been hailed as deep, there’s plenty of enticing talent still on the board.
