The Buffalo Bills will host former Virginia safety Juan Thornhill as a pre-draft visitor according to Andrew DiCecco of The Eagles Wire. Thornhill was a four-year player for the Cavaliers and a three-year starter.

Thornhill made a name for himself during his junior and senior season with a total of 161 tackles and ten interceptions. In his final season at Virginia, he recorded 98 tackles, six interceptions and seven passes defended.

Thornhill tested well at the NFL Combine where he posted at 4.42 40-yard dash and a 44-inch vertical while he measured in at 6’0” and 205 lbs.

The Bills are set at safety with Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde. However, with Taron Johnson coming off an injury, Thornhill would have a chance to compete for the starting nickel spot.

Thornhill is projected to be a Day 2 pick in the NFL Draft and would be a target for the Bills with the 40th overall pick.
