The Buffalo Bills have had a rough offseason, perhaps more so than any other team in the NFL. From losing a star safety, to losing Ralph Wilson, the legendary owner, the Bills have had a rough ride as this offseason has went along. That said, making sure they nail the 2014 NFL Draft could go a long way toward making this offseason much better. With that in mind, here are five NFL Draft prospects that Bills fans should know.

Despite trading for Mike Williams, there is still a need for a big target in the Bills’ receiving core. Kelvin Benjamin is a huge target and at 6-foot-5, would add the size the Bills need.

4. Joe Don Duncan

Although he played at tiny Dixie State, Joe Don Duncan is a legitimate NFL talent. He’s probably too raw to contribute much in his rookie season. However, with a year or two behind Scott Chandler, Duncan would provide the Bills with a solid target.

3. Terrence Brooks

One of the better safety prospects in this year’s draft, Terrence Brooks is a hard-hitting free safety, capable of filling the void left by Jairus Byrd’s departure. The only question is if Brooks will be available for the Bills in the third or fourth round.

2. Dion Bailey

Another safety prospect, Dion Bailey has gone through the entire draft process as a very underrated player. Bailey won’t wow you with any one thing he does, but he’s a reliable, smart, and instinctive player that would do well in the Bills’ defensive scheme.

Erik Pears isn’t awful at right tackle, however, there is no doubt that the team should bring someone in to develop, and eventually take over for him. Matt Hall is an enormous player at 6-foot-9, 323 pounds, and could be a solid successor to Pears down the line.
