Bills pre-draft visitor list will soon include Odell Beckham, Jr.

Beckham is one of the hottest names in the draft, and seems very likely to be selected sometime in Round 1 on May 8.

Gil Brandt of NFL Network reports that LSU wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. is scheduled to visit the Buffalo Bills (and the New York Jets) next week.

Beckham's is one of the hottest names on the NFL Draft circuit at the moment. A 5'11", 198-pound player with 4.43-second 40-yard dash speed, the redshirt junior declared for the draft following a break-out 2013 campaign with the Tigers. He caught 59 passes for 1,152 yards (that's 19.5 yards per reception for the mathematically disinclined) and eight touchdowns.

Buffalo has already hosted Indiana wide receiver Cody Latimer, a day two (or early day three) prospect, this spring - but they also swung a trade for former Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams on Friday, so it's not exactly clear how that will change the priority they're placing on the position moving forward.

The Bills have already confirmed 10 of their 30 allowed pre-draft visitors this week. Here's the full list, now including the reported Beckham visit, which we're also keeping track of in this StoryStream.
