Buffalo Bills meeting with Noah Spence and Shaq Lawson

Spence and Lawson will both meet with Buffalo in the near future.

The Buffalo Bills are likely to address their defensive front seven in the first round of the 2016 NFL draft. Two players that could really help improve Buffalo's front seven will be meeting with the Bills in the near future.

Edge rusher Noah Spence will meet with Buffalo on Friday night. In terms of talent, Spence is a top ten player in this draft class, but character concerns could push him down to pick 19. Spence was suspended from Ohio State for failing two drug tests, but many NFL analysts expect Spence to be selected in the top half of the first round. 

Spence is one of the best pass rushers in the draft class. In 2015, Spence racked up 13.5 sacks and 22.5 tackles for loss at Eastern Kentucky. Buffalo will certainly ask Spence about his past issues to determine whether or not he's worth spending a first round pick on if he falls to the Bills. 

In addition to Spence, the Bills will be meeting with Shaq Lawson

Lawson's draft stock is all over the place. Some NFL analysts have Lawson going in the area of Buffalo's selection, but others have him falling out of the first round all together. In 2015, Lawson made a living in the opposing team's backfield. He finished the 2015 season with 12.5 sacks and 25.5 tackles for loss. Rex Ryan isn't shy about his love for Clemson Tigers, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Bills draft Lawson in the first round.
