We're now getting to the point of the pre-draft process between pro days and the 2012 NFL Draft itself, which means that high-profile prospects will begin making visits with pro teams at a more frequent pace. The Buffalo Bills, for instance, will be visiting with Stanford offensive tackle Jonathan Martin in the near future.

The news comes from Martin himself, who disclosed at the Stanford pro day that he'd be spending some time with the Bills, Minnesota Vikings and Cleveland Browns.

Martin, a 6'5", 312-pound junior entrant, is a light-footed left tackle that has taken some lumps from the draft community for a finesse style of play that leaves something to be desired in terms of physicality. This seems to be especially disconcerting to most because of Stanford's pro-style offense. Still, Martin unquestionably fits the athletic requirements to play the blind side in the NFL, and falls into a second tier of first round caliber tackles that also includes Iowa's Riley Reiff and Ohio State's Mike Adams.

As most of you are aware, with Demetrius Bell poised to depart via free agency, the Bills are in the market for a left tackle that, at minimum, can push second-year pro Chris Hairston for the starting left tackle job next season.
