There are  plenty of positions of need for the Bills heading into the NFL Draft: Wide receiver, linebacker, cornerback, safety, offensive lie -- the list could go on.

Buffalo, as it stands now, only has six selections heading into the first round on Thursday.  The only way to get more?  Find a partner and trade down, and it appears that's the path the Bills are on.

According Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, the Bills are one of four teams to have all ready started to make trade calls.

The more picks you have, the better.  However, with the needs the Bills have on both sides of the ball, it only makes sense to trade if they believe they can still get the same value further down the board.

The first round of the draft is Thursday, April 27, in Philadelphia.  Here is a list of the Bills selections in this year's draft.

Round 1 - 10th overall
Round 2 - 44th overall
Round 3 - 75th overall
Round 5 - 156th overall
Round 5 - 171st overall
Round 6 - 19th overall
