On the heels of a mid-February report that claimed the Buffalo Bills visited the Arizona State campus to take in four football games this past fall comes this tidbit: the Sun Devils' quarterback, 2012 NFL Draft prospect Brock Osweiler, met with the Bills at the 2012 NFL Combine in Indianapolis.
Osweiler, who only started one full season at Arizona State (he had 15 career starts in college), is just a hair under 6'7", weighs in at 242 pounds, and is coming off of a junior season in which he completed 63.2 percent of his passes for 4,036 yards with 26 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Physically, he is quite close to the prototype, but he is a raw prospect that will need plenty of time to season as he transitions from Dennis Erickson's spread offense.
Keep in mind that the Bills, like every other team, will be visiting with dozens of prospects this weekend; that's just part of the Combine process. Osweiler's physical gifts will likely make him a second- or third-round pick, so if the Bills' interest lies beyond getting to know him - and their persistent presence in Tempe may indicate just that - it will take a fairly serious investment to land him.
