Wilson tribute will be Saturday

The celebration and remembrance of the life of Ralph C. Wilson Jr. will be a walk-through exhibit Saturday at the Bills Healthy Zone Fieldhouse in Orchard Park.

Fans may attend at any time between 1 to 4 p.m. Parking lots will open at noon, and there is no tailgating for the event.

The exhibit on display in the fieldhouse will feature memorabilia and artifacts from the life of Wilson, the Bills’ founder and owner, who died at age 95 last week. Fans will be invited to sign a guest book to pay their respects to Wilson. The book will be presented to the Wilson family at a later date.

Due to the construction taking place at Ralph Wilson Stadium, fans must enter the Drive One parking lot via Big Tree Road. Cars will be parked in Lot One and the fieldhouse Lot.

Meanwhile, the Bills had three draft prospects visit One Bills Drive Wednesday. They were Bradley Robey and Ryan Shazier of Ohio State and Lache Seastrunk of Baylor.

Robey is projected to be picked later in the first round. He’s a 5-foot-11, 194-pound cornerback who made 36 starts in his college career and is known for his hard-nosed style. He ran an exceptional time of 4.39 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine. Shazier is likely to be taken late in the first or early in the second round. He’s a 6-1, 237-pound linebacker who was first-team All-America. He had 39.5 tackles for loss the last two seasons. He ran a blazing time of 4.36 seconds at Ohio State’s pro-day workout.

Seastrunk, 5-9 and 201, could be a third- or fourth-round pick. He rushed for 1,177 yards and 11 touchdowns for Baylor last season.
