As the Buffalo Bills prepare for the 2014 NFL Draft, they are allowed to bring up to 30 players to One Bills Drive for on-site pre-draft visits. Though it’s dangerous to read too much into those visits for projections, they can be a good indicator into not only what prospects the Bills want to get to know better, but also what schools, positions or types of players the team might be keeping a close eye on.
The Buffalo Bills could target a pass-catcher and offensive lineman in the early rounds of this year’s draft, as evidenced by their pre-draft visits. On Wednesday, the team hosted two potential first-round picks—Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins and Notre Dame offensive lineman Zack Martin—along with one of the draft’s most intriguing sleeper prospects, offensive tackle Laurent Duvernay-Tardif from Canada’s McGill University.
The Bills currently stand at 26 official visits, and will likely use their remaining four by the end of this week.
