Ohio State QB Cardale Jones said on Sirius XM NFL Radio that he’ll be paying the Bills a pre-draft visit.

The news comes at little surprise. The Bills intend to add a quarterback to the roster this offseason and there are a good deal of developmental prospects in the draft. Jones is one of them. Blessed with tremendous physical tools, there isn’t much game tape to work off of knowing he has thrown just 269 passes at the collegiate level.
A hamstring injury also kept him from throwing at the NFL Combine. Bills offensive coordinator Greg Roman and quarterbacks coach David Lee were both at the Ohio State pro day earlier this month. But having him meet with them and work on the board is something they clearly want to do with the physically gifted prospect to better assess his mental processing of the game knowing how voluminous Roman’s offensive playbook is. The private workout will also give the Bills the opportunity to have Jones execute elements of their passing game to see how he fares.
