The Buffalo Bills – and every other team in the NFL – are allotted 30 pre-draft visits ahead of the 2022 NFL Draft.
A top-30 visit allows teams to get to know potential targets, whether it’s someone the Bills could be targeting in Round 1, a mid-to-late round pick or even a potential UDFA. For the players, it’s an opportunity for them to see the facilities, meet the coaching staff and front office personnel.
League insiders have been reporting top-30 visits over the past few weeks. Here’s a look at the players who have reportedly visited the Bills or will visit the Bills ahead of the 2022 NFL Draft.
Note: This list will be updated as more top-30 visits are announced.
Clemson CB Andrew Booth Jr.
Andrew Booth Jr., a potential first round target, recently visited the Bills according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
In his three seasons at Clemson, Booth Jr. recorded five interceptions and nine passes defensed.
With Tre’Davious White coming off of a serious injury and the team losing Levi Wallace in free agency, the Bills could be in the market for a cornerback early in the draft.
Ohio State OT Nicholas Petit-Frere
Dan Hope of Eleven Warriors reported that Ohio State OT Nicholas Petit-Frere would be making a top-30 visit with the Bills. The offensive tackle
Petit-Frere started at tackle with the Buckeyes and has the potential to become a starter at the position in the NFL.
Buffalo already has Dion Dawkins and Spencer Brown as their starting tackles, but Petit-Frere could be a swing tackle as a rookie and start in the event of an injury.
Texas A&M RB Isaiah Player
Isaiah Spiller will be making a top-30 visit with the Bills according to Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network.
Buffalo could be in the market for a running back despite having Devin Singletary, Duke Johnson and Zack Moss on their roster. Spiller rushed for 5.4 yards per carry or more in all three of his seasons at Texas A&M and finished with 25 rushing touchdowns on the ground. Spiller can also catch the ball out of the backfield. He had 74 receptions for 585 yards in three seasons with the Aggies.
Georgia RB James Cook
The Bulldogs running back shared that he was in Buffalo for a top-30 visit by sharing a story on his Instagram.
James Cook, brother of Vikings RB Dalvin Cook, has good speed and is viewed as one of the draft’s better pass-catching running backs. Last season, Cook rushed for 728 yards and seven touchdowns on 113 carries. He added another 284 yards and seven touchdowns on 27 receptions.
Coastal Carolina TE Isaiah Likely
Jordan Schultz of The NFL Game Day reported that Isaiah Likely will be visiting the Bills on April 13th.
Likely is viewed as one of the top tight ends in the draft class and is coming off of a 59-912-12 season at Coastal Carolina.
Dawson Knox and OJ Howard are the Bills’ top two tight ends, but the latter is just on a one-year deal with Buffalo. If new OC Ken Dorsey plans on running a lot of two-tight end sets, adding Likely could be in Buffalo’s plans.
Georgia S Lewis Cine & Maryland S Nick Cross
An Instagram story by Nick Cross revealed that both safeties were in town for top-30 visits with the Bills.
Lewis Cine is viewed as a late first, early second round prospect in the draft. He has excellent film from his time with the Bulldogs and is viewed as someone that could start immediately in the NFL.
Cross is viewed as a day two prospect in the 2022 NFL Draft. He started 13 games with the Terrapins in 2021 and recording three interceptions and two forced fumbles.
Buffalo currently has Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde as their starting safeties, but Poyer is entering the final year of his contract and the Bills could ultimately let him go as you can’t pay everyone in today’s NFL.
