NFL Draft 2014: Lache Seastrunk will make pre-draft visit to Buffalo

The Bills could be planning ahead at running back, where Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller may both be free agents after the 2014 season.

Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk told reporters at his pro day on Wednesday that he has scheduled a pre-draft visit with the Buffalo Bills.

The 5'10", 209-pound Seastrunk spent the first year of his college career buried behind star runners on the depth chart at Oregon. A five-star recruit coming out of high school, Seastrunk transferred to Baylor prior to the 2012 season, and in two years as the Bears' top tailback averaged 7.6 yards per carry while accumulating 2,189 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns. (He only caught nine passes in his two seasons at Baylor.)

As most Bills fans are aware, both Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller could become free agents next offseason. Jackson's contract expires after this season, while Spiller has an opt-out clause that would make him a free agent. Seastrunk fits the Spiller profile as a runner - he's a speed-first guy - but he is not nearly as developed in the passing game as Spiller was coming out of Clemson.

Seastrunk is the second draft prospect to tell reporters that he'll be visiting One Bills Drive. News broke on Wednesday that North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron will be making the trip to Orchard Park, as well.
