NFL Draft Report

By Joe Buscaglia

Bills pre-draft visit final tally: 9 QBs

The 2013 NFL Draft is closing in, and the Buffalo Bills concluded their pre-draft visits on Friday. The team welcomed in three more draft-eligible players, bringing their total to the maximum alotment of 30 official visits.

On Friday, the group consisted of Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson, Harvard fullback Kyle Juszczyk and SMU linebacker Ja'Gared Davis. It was previously reported that LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu had a scheduled visit with the Bills, but that visit never ended up happening.

Wilson is the ninth quarterback to visit One Bills Drive throughout the process. The only players at the position who are in the perceived top-10 of this year's class to not make a visit to Buffalo were Syracuse's Ryan Nassib and Zac Dysert of Miami (OH). One could make an argument, though, that the visit for Nassib could have been deemed unnecessary considering both his head coach and offensive coordinator in college are now in the same posts with the Bills.

No offensive linemen, cornerbacks, defensive tackles or running backs were invited throughout the process. Here is the complete listing of the 30 players by position:
