With exactly four weeks to go until the NFL Draft, it's nearing crunch time for teams and prospects.
The next part of the process involves prospect visits. Every NFL team is permitted to bring in up to 30 prospects for a visit to their facility. Sometimes, those visits are a smoke screen. Other times, they are a sign of genuine interest.
Either way, it's time for those visits to begin. The Buffalo Bills will host BYU linebacker Fred Warner, according to a report from Sirius XM NFL radio host Alex Marvez.
.@BYUfootball LB @fred_warner tells @SiriusXMNFL that he has pre-draft visits set with @Broncos @buffalobills & @nyjets. Already had private workouts for @Saints @HoustonTexans & @dallascowboys. Intriguing WLB/hyrbrid prospect.

Warner, 6-foot-3 and 227 pounds, is projected a fourth- or fifth-round draft pick, according to his scouting report on nfl.com. He led the Cougars with 87 tackles, including nine for losses, and also had one interception and five passes defensed in 2017.
He ran a 4.64-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine and would provide some much-needed athleticism to the Bills' group of linebackers. Warner's 60-yard shuttle time of 11.77 seconds at the combine ranked among the top linebackers. Most scouting reports project Warner as an outside linebacker, noting his strength in coverage.
