2013 NFL Draft: Geno Smith, Kenny Vaccaro, Kevin Minter visit Bills

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

Three potential first-round picks are in Buffalo on Thursday visiting the Bills.

For a third straight day, the Buffalo Bills have confirmed a set of 2013 NFL Draft prospects visiting team headquarters at One Bills Drive. Today, four players are in the building: West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith, Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro, LSU linebacker Kevin Minter and Texas A&M wide receiver Ryan Swope.

We discussed Swope this morning, and of course Geno Smith, as the consensus top quarterback available in this year's draft class, is well-known in these parts. Vaccaro, a first-round lock that has drawn comparisons to Mark Barron (the No. 7 overall pick a year ago), is a player that we've had earmarked as a potential target of the Bills for months. Minter, a junior entrant out of LSU, is considered one of the two or three best middle linebackers available this year, usually mentioned in the same breath as Alec Ogletree and Manti Te'o. Minter is considered a second-round prospect, but may sneak into the bottom of Round 1.

This is the full list of pre-draft visitors that the Bills have confirmed in the last three days; we're also keeping track of everything in this StoryStream:
