The Bills are scheduled to have a top 30 visit with Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph this weekend, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Rudolph is the third quarterback reported to have such a visit scheduled with the Bills, joining UCLA's Josh Rosen and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield. Mayfield is scheduled to be in Buffalo next week.
Rudolph has the ideal size: 6-foot-5 and 230 pounds. He has the impressive production, throwing for 92 touchdowns and only 26 interceptions in 42 career starts and an NCAA-leading 4,904 yards with 37 TDs (and nine interceptions) as a senior at Oklahoma State.
Tough. Sturdy. Pretty much the prototypical package of what NFL teams want in a franchise pocket passer.
But Rudolph is well aware of what the critics are saying about him – that he's a system quarterback. He doesn’t give it any credence.
He displays a great deal of confidence in what he has accomplished and what he sees himself doing at the next level. It comes off less as bombast than self-assuredness. That, too, would seemingly fit the personality profile of a quarterback.
“I see myself right at the top,” Rudolph told reporters at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. “I think you put my skill set up with anyone in the country, in this class. I throw the ball down the field, if not the best, one of the best in the country.
“I’m very accurate with the ball. A lot of production, a lot of games, a lot of starts, durable. Kind of all those characteristics, I think, are my strong suit.”
Oklahoma State wide receiver Marcell Ateman described Rudolph this way Friday on Sirius XM Radio, "He is so poised and his leadership really comes out whether we were losing or winning and that is what I love. He was always fired up and ready to go. He has some of the best numbers out of the QBs & he is going to be a dominant QB."
