Bills host Matt Kalil, Dre Kirkpatrick - AFC East Blog - ESPN
"Buffalo isn't projected to take either player at No. 10. But this is most likely a case of Buffalo gathering information in the event it trades up or down the draft board. The Bills are in search of a left tackle to protect starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, and Kalil is expected to be a top-five pick. Buffalo also could use a top cornerback. But Kirkpatrick is expected to go in the middle or late first round."
