The Buffalo Bills are expected to strongly consider drafting a wide receiver relatively early in the NFL draft. The receivers were available to reporters Tuesday morning at the scouting combine in Indianapolis and a number of them said they had met or were expected to meet with Bills officials.
Colorado's Laviska Shenault Jr., a popular choice in some mock drafts at No. 22, said he has met with the Bills at the combine.

Clemson's Tee Higgins, another popular choice at No. 22, said he has a meeting scheduled with the Bills in Indy.
Alabama's Henry Ruggs III said he has met with the Bills and noted his strong relationship with Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll from their time together at Alabama. Ruggs said he ran an unofficial 4.25-second 40-yard dash in the spring and feels like he can top that.
Notre Dame's Chase Claypool said he plans to meet with the Bills. Some analysts have suggested that Claypool would be a better fit at tight end at 6-4 and 238 pounds. Claypool did not discount the possibility when meeting with reporters.
Kentucky's Lynn Bowden, Penn State's K.J. Hamler and Miami's K.J. Osborn, who previously played at UB, and TCU's Jalen Reagor all said they met with the Bills.
Arizona State's Brandon Aiyuk said he met with eight teams already and plans to meet with 12 others but declined to identify the teams. The Bills met with him at the Senior Bowl. He sat out the game with an injury, but said he is ready to go for the combine.
LSU's Justin Jefferson said he’s met informally with the Bills talking with receivers coach Chad Hall. Jefferson said he has a close relationship with Bills All-Pro cornerback Tre'Davious White.
Baylor's Denzel Mims said he has informally met with the Bills.
