South Carolina defensive end Melvin Ingram will be making a pre-2012 NFL Draft visit with the Buffalo Bills this week, according to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com.

Ingram will be at least the second pass rusher to pass through One Bills Drive this week, as the team confirmed on Monday that Boise State end Shea McClellin was among a trio of defenders visiting team facilities yesterday.

Ingram, long considered a lock as a first-round pick and a potential Top 15 selection, recorded 19 sacks and 26 tackles for loss in his final two seasons in the SEC. Draft experts have talked up the 6'1", 264-pound Ingram's versatility and pass-rushing talents all spring, but Ingram's shorter stature and lack of polish defending the run have limited his draft stock a bit. Still, it's no secret that pass rushers go very early on draft day, and Ingram has a great shot at being the first rusher off the board.

Buffalo has spent gobs of money this off-season on ends Mario Williams and Mark Anderson, so while it's a longshot that the Bills' interest in Ingram as an option at No. 10 remains legitimate, as we said yesterday, don't rule out any possibility just yet.
