Add LSU junior cornerback Patrick Peterson to the list of 2011 NFL Draft prospects that will be making a pre-draft visit with the Buffalo Bills.

Peterson, regarded by many as the best prospect available at any position this season, disclosed his visit to Orchard Park in an interview with the National Football Post. According to Peterson, he's got visits lined up with every team in possession of a top six pick this April - including not only Buffalo, but Carolina, Denver, Cincinnati, Arizona and Cleveland, as well.

The 6'2", 219-pound defensive back is perhaps the best pure athlete available this year, having run a 4.32-second 40-yard dash at the Combine despite being one of the biggest defensive backs in Indy. The star corner is also one of the most dynamic return threats in this draft class, adding to his already excellent value.

The Bills have also reportedly set up pre-draft workouts with Auburn QB Cameron Newton, Wisconsin OT Gabe Carimi, Arizona DE Brooks Reed, Purdue DE Ryan Kerrigan and Texas A&M OLB Von Miller.
