Mike Evans, Marcus Martin, Jerick McKinnon visit Buffalo Bills

Evans is a day one pick, Martin is a likely day two pick, and McKinnon is the fifth running back to visit the Buffalo Bills so far this spring.

Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans, USC interior offensive lineman Marcus Martin and Georgia Southern running back Jerick McKinnon are making pre-draft visits with the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday, the team announced.

Evans, of course, is the well-known likely Top 10 pick that is considered by most to be the best receiver available outside of Sammy Watkins this year (though a few would argue that another Bills pre-draft visitor, Odell Beckham, Jr., would get the nod there). The 6'5", 231-pound sophomore caught 151 passes for 2,499 yards and 17 touchdowns in his two seasons with the Aggies.

The 6'3", 320-pound Martin is considered by most to be the best center in this year's draft class, and he has the size and feet to fit into any blocking scheme at the NFL level. Because of his versatility in the pivot, he is widely expected to be selected on the draft's second day, perhaps even as early as Round 2.

McKinnon is a tad undersized at 5'9" and 209 pounds, but he has 4.41-second 40-yard dash speed and is coming off a college career in which he accumulated 3,899 rushing yards (at 6.3 yards per carry) and 42 touchdowns in his four-year career in his school's triple-option offense. McKinnon is the fifth running back to visit One Bills Drive this spring, and a sixth - Towson's Terrance West - is reportedly on the way (though not yet confirmed by the team).

The Bills have now confirmed 23 pre-draft visitors so far this spring; they are allowed a maximum of 30. Here's the full list, which we're also keeping track of in this StoryStream.
