Even though the Buffalo Bills went a disappointing 6-10 in 2013, they had an abundance of talent on the roster, much of which is returning this season. With the team looking towards a long awaited return to the playoffs, here are the five most likely Buffalo Bills to make the Pro Bowl in 2014.

Ever since joining the Bills as a first-round pick in 2009, Wood has quietly been one of the most consistent interior linemen in the league the past few seasons. After struggling to stay healthy early in his career, Wood finally played in all 16 games in 2013. A revamped offense could lead to a first Pro Bowl appearance for Buffalo’s center.

Spiller’s talent has been obvious from his first day in an NFL uniform. He is one of the fastest players in the league and is a threat to score every time he touches the ball. Spiller earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl after a breakout 2012 season, but he took a step back last season. Even though he will be splitting carries with Fred Jackson, Spiller should reassert himself as one of the premier running backs in the NFL.

A relatively unheralded second-round pick out of Oregon in last year’s draft, Alonso took the NFL by storm in his first few weeks, making big play after big play. While he didn’t make as many big plays towards the end of the season, he still finished with a whopping 159 tackles and four interceptions, all while playing every snap of every game. If that’s what Alonso was able to do as a rookie, then the Bills must be ecstatic about the future.

Kyle Williams is without a doubt one of the most underrated players in the NFL today. If he played for a team like the Cowboys or the Jets he would be universally recognized as one of the best defensive tackles in the game. The former LSU standout is coming off of his third Pro Bowl appearance in the past four years after recording 10.5 sacks in 2013. He will look to be equally dominant in 2014.

The Bills had one of the league’s best defenses in the NFL in 2013, setting a franchise single-season sacks record in the process, and Mario Williams was one of the biggest reasons for that success. Though he has faced criticism, Williams has posted double digit sacks in both of his seasons with the Bills. He should thrive in new defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz’s scheme and continue to be a dominating force.
