If you thought the wait between December 30, 2012 (the Buffalo Bills' regular season finale) and April 25, 2013 (the start of the 2013 NFL Draft) was a long one, this news isn't for you: the NFL has announced that the 2014 NFL Draft will take place on May 8-10, 2014 at Radio City Music Hall.
The Bills' regular season finale this year is on December 29, meaning that unless Buffalo ends its 13-year playoff drought, we'll be waiting an extra two weeks for the most exciting annual off-season event for our fan base.
The NFL's decision to move the draft into May had to do with a scheduling conflict at Radio City Music Hall; the decision to hold the draft in May is therefore not a permanent one, and nothing has been announced beyond next year's draft. Other off-season events - such as the start of the league year and the 2014 NFL Combine dates (February 18-25) - remain in their usual time frames.
Please make the playoffs this year, Buffalo.
