One of the best quarterbacks in this draft will be making a stop in Buffalo before the draft. UCLA’s Josh Rosen has scheduled a pre-draft visit with the Buffalo Bills in April, according to Sports Illustrated’s Peter King. The trip will be one of seven visits he has lined up so far, including Cleveland, the Jets and Giants, Arizona, Denver, and the Los Angeles Chargers.
Speaking with reporters at the NFL Combine, Bills GM Brandon Beane acknowledged that the team planned to schedule a visit for Rosen, and this is an indication that they followed through. This is the third notable interaction between the Bills and Josh Rosen during the pre-draft circuit; the team already held a private workout with Rosen in Los Angeles, in addition to meeting with him at the Combine.
As far as known meetings go, the only player who has spent more time with the Bills brass is Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield, who, in addition to his own private workout, pre-draft visit, and Combine meeting, also talked with the team at the Senior Bowl. While teams try to keep their player interest close to the vest, the reporting around each year’s top quarterbacks is especially well-connected, so we can get a sense of each team’s apparent interest in these players. With a little less than a month to go ahead of the draft, the early forerunners seem to be these two.
