The Buffalo Bills will head out west on Monday to workout two USC Trojans in the hopes of adding some more weapons to their offensive attack. Matt Barkley and wide receiver Robert Woods will have a private workout with team officials, per James Walker of ESPN.com.

We've known for a while now that the Bills would be working out Barkley but the date wasn't reported. He will be the seventh quarterback that Buddy Nix and company have worked out privately joining Washington State's Jeff Tuel, Arizona's Matt Scott, West Virginia's Geno Smith, Florida State's E.J. Manuel, Tennessee's Tyler Bray and Oklahoma's Landry Jones.

Woods is a receiver who could come in an start for the Bills on opening day, says Mocking the Draft's Dan Kadar. He had an excellent Pro Day last week but is somewhat of an injury risk with a foot injury that has consistently nagged him during his time at USC. He was an All-American two years ago when he grabbed 111 passes for 1292 yards and 15 touchdowns. His production dipped in 2012 when he hauled in "only" 76 catches for 846 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Barkley and Woods are both seen as late first round or second round picks in April's draft.
