Buffalo Bills host Maryland receiver D.J. Moore on pre-draft visit, per report

More is rising fast into the bottom of the first round.

The Buffalo Bills are continuing through the process of evaluating players for the 2018 NFL Draft. This weekend, the Bills reportedly met with Maryland wide receiver D.J. Moore who is fast-rising up draft boards according to the man who broke the story, Tony Pauline.

The three-year starter topped 1000 yards receiving a year ago, leading the Big Ten, with 80 receptions and eight touchdowns. His solid 4.42 forty-yard dash time and prolific final college season make him an attractive target.

Moore is only the second receiver we know has visited Buffalo in the pre-draft process, along with LSU’s DJ Chark. Despite having a need at the position, the Bills haven’t been going out of their way to look at receiving prospects.

Moore is expected to be a second round pick, but buzz has been building that his inconsistencies are coachable and he is moving up into the bottom of the first round. The Bills have picks at 22 and 53, on the edges of his expected selection range.
