OT Matthews makes visit to One Bills Drive



(WGR 550) -- The man that has been linked to the Buffalo Bills in many a mock draft officially made his visit to Orchard Park on Wednesday. Texas A&M offensive tackle Jake Matthews, regarded as one of the top prospects available in the 2014 NFL Draft, made his pre-draft visit at One Bills Drive.

According to a league source, Matthews got into town on Tuesday and had dinner with members of the organization. On Wednesday, he's touring team facilities and meeting with coaches.

Matthews is the son of Pro Football Hall of Fame offensive lineman Bruce Matthews, and turned a successful career at Texas A&M into a likely top-10 selection in the draft. The offensive lineman checked in at the NFL Combine at 6-foot-5 and 308-pounds.

He started 46 games throughout his collegiate career, starting at left tackle during his senior season. As a sophomore and junior, Matthews played right tackle while 2013 first-round pick Luke Joeckel played on the left side.

The team announced that they also brought in Louisville linebacker Preston Brown for a pre-draft visit.

Brown is a senior linebacker that has been a three-year starter for the Cardinals. In 2013, he had 98 total tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks on the season. He measured in at the NFL Combine at 6-foot-1 and 251-pounds. He's projected to be a mid-round selection.

The Bills have used 13 of their 30 official pre-draft visits for non-local prospects. Click here to see a full list of who has visited to this point.
