The Buffalo Bills are a team on the rise. The team absolutely nailed the 2013 NFL Draft, but if they really want to continue to improve, they will need to nail this year’s draft. Ladies and gentlemen, here are five 2014 NFL Draft sleepers who fit perfectly with the Bills.

Scott Chandler has been largely ordinary over his time with the Bills, and it’s time the Bills search for someone who can develop behind him and take over in a few seasons. Joe Don Dixon isn’t NFL-ready as things stand right now, but he has the potential to develop into a starter one day.

Cordy Glenn is firmly entrenched as the Bills’ left tackle, but the right side of the line is a different story. Buffalo could use an upgrade over incumbent Erik Pears, and in Ja'Wuan James they would get just that. On the right side of the line, James has Pro Bowl potential.

Mario Williams has one side of the Bills’ defensive line locked down, but Alan Branch is a liability on the other side. Enter Demarcus Lawrence, a pass-rushing monster with excellent potential, and the Bills could have one of the NFL’s best defensive lines.

After losing Jairus Byrd to free agency, a big hole was opened up in the Bills’ secondary. Ed Reynolds isn’t quite on Byrd’s level, however, there is no doubting Reynolds is NFL-ready and could be a solid producer from day one.

Despite the acquisition of Mike Williams from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Bills still need to add size to their receiving corps. Brandon Coleman is a 6-foot-6 target with good hands and solid potential, and he could develop into one of E.J. Manuel’s favorite targets.
