Karl Joseph a Buffalo Bills pre-2016 NFL Draft visitor

New, comments

A quality safety prospect, Joseph has flown under the radar a bit due to a knee injury

From the looks of it, West Virginia safety Karl Joseph, a potential first-day (but likely second-day) selection in the 2016 NFL Draft, made a pre-draft visit with the Buffalo Bills earlier this week.

Joseph posted an Instagram photo of himself and former NFL safety (and current Bills assistant defensive backs coach) Ed Reed on Wednesday, which also happened to be the last day that teams were allowed to host draft prospects at their facilities.

One of the top safety prospects available this year, the 5'10", 205-pound Joseph is among several players who have seen their stock fall because of pre-existing injuries. Joseph missed most of the 2015 season with a knee injury that has prevented him from doing field work during the pre-draft process. Still, despite the injury and his lack of ideal size, Joseph has an appealing combination of physicality, aggressiveness, range, and play-making ability (he had five interceptions in his four-game senior season) should have him off the board very early.

We have added Joseph's name to our running, unofficial list of Bills pre-draft visitors this spring - a list which now includes 22 names.
