Buffalo Bills 53-man roster projection, post 2014 NFL Draft

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

The majority of the Buffalo Bills' offseason personnel moves are now in the books - so let's take a look at a 53-man roster projection to see, in one fell swoop, what has changed this spring.

The 2014 NFL Draft is in the books, and while it is certainly possible that GM Doug Whaley will continue to tweak his roster into the late spring and summer months, the bulk of the Buffalo Bills' personnel maneuverings for the 2014 offseason have happened. Why not have a Monday morning discussion starter with an insanely early 53-man roster projection?

Much like mock drafts in January, this is not meant as an actual guess; it's meant as a discussion-starter, and to take a big-picture look at the team after months of transactions. 12 names on the depth chart below are new to the team since the close of the 2013 regular season, which gives you an idea of just how much work the team has done in four-plus months.

What do you like about the new look of the Bills' roster? What are you concerned about? Who do you think has a strong chance to make the team that isn't listed below, or, alternately, who below do you consider a longshot? Training camp begins in a little over two months, friends!
