There is virtually no chance Southern California quarterback Sam Darnold will be available when the Buffalo Bills are scheduled to pick 12th overall in the NFL Draft later this month.
There is still a chance the Bills could trade up, though, which could put them in a position to select Darnold, who has been taken in virtually every mock draft within the first few picks. Perhaps in preparation for that exact scenario, the Bills' decision makers will head to Los Angeles on Friday to conduct a private workout with Darnold, according to a report Monday from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Darnold completed 63.1 percent of his passes for 4,143 yards and 26 touchdowns in 2017, leading the Trojans to a Pac-12 championship.
The Bills have previously had private workouts with UCLA's Josh Rosen, Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield and Wyoming's Josh Allen.
Rosen, Mayfield and Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph are among the Bills' 30 pre-draft visitors to Orchard Park.
