Pre-draft visits planned or in the books

Each NFL team can bring in up to 30 prospects before the NFL draft. So far, the Bills have or are scheduled to meet with 16 prospects, based on reports here at The News, the Bills' official website, and other national outlets.

Here's the list of who has/will visit:

RB Trent Richardson, Alabama

QB Kirk Cousins, Michigan State

OL Cordy Glenn, Georgia

QB Russell Wilson, Wisconsin

WR Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State

WR Brian Quick, Appalachian State

LT Jonathan Martin, Stanford

DE Whitney Mercilus, Illinois

LB Tank Carder, TCU

DE Andre Branch, Clemson

LT Matt Kalil, USC

QB Brock Osweiler, Arizona State

CB Dre Kirkpatrick, Alabama

DE Chandler Jones, Syracuse

LB Bruce Irvin, West Virginia

LT Mike Adams, Ohio State

This list may very well not be all inclusive, as some teams prefer to keep their interest in certain prospects quiet.

With that in mind, a few thoughts:

-- The two names most often pegged for the Bills in mock drafts, offensive tackle Riley Reiff of Iowa and wide receiver Michael Floyd of Notre Dame are not on that list. That could mean a a few things: 1)As mentioned above, the Bills have already had Reiff and Floyd in for visits, and asked them to keep quiet, 2) the visits simply haven't yet, 3) the Bills "know what they have" and don't need to schedule a visit, or 4) they simply don't like them.

-- The Bills are clearly doing their due diligence on the quarterbacks in this year's class.

-- By far the most interesting name on the list is running back Trent Richardson. He plays a position that's clearly not a "need," but if he was to be available at No. 10, it would put General Manager Buddy Nix's theory of taking the best player available to the test.
