Offensive Lineman & Tight Ends linked to the Buffalo Bills

Darnell Wright: Bills reporter Ryan Talbot, reported that the Bills hosted the Tennessee offensive tackle on a top-30 visit. Wright’s combine measurements were impressive, at 6’5″ 333lbs, and a 5.01 forty-yard dash. Wright could immediately improve the Bills’ O-line.

Payne Durham: Justin M of the Draft Network, reported that the Bills held an interview with Payne Durham. The former Purdue tight end had 126 catches, for 1,275 yards and 21 touchdowns, in four seasons with Purdue. The 6’6″ prospect could be a nice number two tight end for the Bills, plus he has a cool name.

Matt Bergeron: Buffalo Bills’ reporter Matt Parrino, reported the Bills attended Syracuse’s pro-day. He also reported that the Bills’ offensive line coach, Aaron Kromer, was putting Tackle Matthew Bergeron, through workouts on the field. The 6’5″ tackle played his college ball right down the road from Buffalo.

Darnell Washington: The Bills did not hold out on visits or interviews with top prospects. Reporter Aaron Wilson reported that the Bills hosted tight end Darnell Washington on a visit. Washington is a massive target at 6’7″ and 264lbs. The former Georgia Bulldog is loaded with potential to be a star at the next level, but it will take some refinement.

John Michael Schmitz: The Minessota interior o-lineman is viewed as one of, if not the top, center prospects in the draft. The Bills reportedly held a Zoom meeting with the 6’3 1/2″ All-American, according to Ryan Talbot.

Joe Tippman: Ryan Talbot also reported, that Joe Tippman made a top-30 visit to Buffalo. Another one of the top interior O-line prospects in this year’s draft. Tippman is a monster at 6’6″ 313lbs, and 10 3/4″ hands.

Luke Schoonmaker: Schoonmaker is one of the early middle-round tight end prospects in the draft. The former Michigan tight end has good size at 6’5″ and 251lbs and is a plus blocker. Jeremy Fowler reported, that the Bills held the tight end on a pre-draft visit.
