WR Beckham headlines three pre-draft Bills visitors



(WGR 550) -- The Buffalo Bills have crossed the halfway point of their pre-draft visit schedule for 2014. On Thursday, the team welcomed in three more NFL Draft prospects to tour team facilities and meet with the coaches and the rest of the staff.

The team announced that LSU wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr., Rice cornerback Phillip Gaines and Cumberlands running back Terrance Cobb all made their visits to Orchard Park.

Beckham is the second wide receiver to visit the Bills through the pre-draft process. The LSU wideout entered the 2014 NFL Draft as a junior, posting big numbers as both a pass-catcher and a return specialist. Beckham caught 59 passes for 1,152 yards and eight touchdowns in 2013. Listed at 5-foot-11 and 198-pounds, he's projected to be a borderline first-round pick.

A senior cornerback, Gaines excelled in his final year with the Owls to warrant draft consideration. In 2013, he had 36 tackles, four interceptions and four tackles for loss. Gaines is 6-feet and 193-pounds and ran a 4.38 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine.

The relatively unknown running back, Cobb, carries high hopes coming from the Kentucky-based NAIA school at the University of the Cumberlands. During his junior season in 2012, Cobb rushed for an impressive 1,991 yards and 26 touchdowns in 12 games. During his senior season, however, he played in only 6 games and gained 529 yards and six touchdowns. Cobb is listed at 5-foot-11 and 218-pounds.

The Bills have now hosted 16 prospects on pre-draft visits. Each team in the NFL are allowed a total of 30 non-local visits. To see a full list of who has visited One Bills Drive, click here.
