LSU LB Kelvin Sheppard wasn’t shy about making his morning pre-draft visit to One Bills Drive known. Here’s his twitter post about it.
Shepp_LB11 Morning!! Early morning in Buffalo then off to airport and back to the boot.
Sheppard is referring to Louisiana with his boot comment, since the state is shaped like a boot. The LSU LB, who visited along with Texas A&M LB Von Miller, already knows Buffalo’s coaching staff well having run the defense for the South team at the Senior Bowl for defensive coordinator George Edwards. He’s forecast by most draft services as a third or fourth round pick, and would be an excellent fit as an inside linebacker in a 3-4 behind veterans like Paul Posluszny and Andra Davis. Miller was also on the South team roster for the Senior Bowl.
