2014 NFL Draft Order: Buffalo Bills slide up to No. 8

The Buffalo Bills lost in Tampa, but only managed to move up one spot in the 2014 NFL Draft order as several teams ahead of them snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

Several teams ahead of the Buffalo Bills in the 2014 NFL Draft order had their opponents on the ropes. The Oakland Raiders and Cleveland Browns both held last-minute leads but found a way to lose, keeping themselves ahead of Buffalo in the draft order for the moment.

Here's a complete first-round look from our friends at SB Nation, but we'll provide you with the top nine, remembering that head-to-head play has no bearing on the draft order:

Pick Team Record Strength of Schedule
1 Houston Texans 2-11 .553
2 St. Louis via Washington
3-10 .519
3 Atlanta Falcons 3-10 .558
4 Minnesota Vikings
3-9-1 .529
5 Jacksonville Jaguars
4-9 .490
6 Oakland Raiders
4-9 .514
7 Cleveland Browns 4-9 .519
8 Buffalo Bills
4-9 .534
9 Tampa Bay Buccaneers
4-9 .572

In Dan Kadar's most recent mock draft, he has the Bills once again selecting Buffalo linebacker Khalil Mack. If the Bills continue sliding up the draft order, though, Mack may not be the right value in the Top 5.

"If it's not a player like Mack, a tight end like Texas Tech's Jace Amaro or wide receiver like Texas A&M's Mike Evans should get some attention from Buffalo as well," continued Kadar.
