The Buffalo Bills brought in their first offensive lineman today and will not stop there. They are also bringing in their second offensive lineman and first top 10 prospect later tonight.
The Buffalo Bills will play host to Jake Matthews this evening while he meets with the coaches.
Matthews is a top ten prospect in this year’s draft and can is considered to be a plug and play player. He will be able to be put at either right or left guard and be able to start immediately. Rumors have it that if Buffalo does draft Matthews at the 9th spot they may look to place him at left tackle and move Cordy Glenn to right.
Either way Matthews is a guy that I think the Bills would be happy to bring in and it will just strengthen their offensive line tenfold.
With the addition of OL Chris Williams during free agency, the Bills are still in need of a tackle to play opposite Glenn. Pears is the other tackle and struggled at times last year. Glenn will also be a free agent at the end of this year, so having Matthews might not be a bad idea.
Buffalo has used 10, with Matthews, 11 of their 30 pre – draft visits. Buffalo does have another visit reported to be set with WR Odell Beckham out of LSU. No date has been set with Beckham yet.
