Bills host pair of LB prospects -
"The Bills pre-draft visit schedule was focused on the defensive side of the ball Thursday as they hosted a pair of linebackers on St. Patrick’s Day. Buffalo welcomed in Texas A&M pass rusher Von Miller and LSU inside linebacker Kelvin Sheppard. Miller is widely seen as a top five draft choice and has been projected as a possible pick for the Bills at three by several mock draft prognosticators. Sheppard is expected to be more of a middle round choice." Blogs: Gabbert answers questions about accuracy
