Buffalo Bills to hold private workout with Reggie Ragland

The Bills certainly need an inside linebacker after losing Nigel Bradham in free agency.

The Buffalo Bills are expected to address their front seven in the 2016 NFL draft. Inside linebacker is certainly a pressing need for Buffalo after losing Nigel Bradham in free agency so it's possible that the Bills address the spot early in the draft.

One of the top inside linebackers in the 2016 draft class is Reggie Ragland of Alabama. In the first round of the draft, Ragland is a realistic possibility for Buffalo. 

The Bills are certainly doing their homework on the linebacker. GM Doug Whaley was in attendance at Alabama's Pro Day and NFL.com reports that the Bills are one of four teams that have set up a private workout with Ragland.

Ragland, who's projected to be a first-round pick, spoke with College Football 24/7 at Alabama's pro day on Wednesday. He said that he's already scheduled private workouts with the Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars, Baltimore Ravens and Minnesota Vikings, with more than that in touch with his agent to find open dates. The Vikings and Bills, picking at Nos. 19 and 23, respectively, could find Ragland available at his projected value.

The Alabama linebacker is on Buffalo's radar and if he's available at pick 19, the Bills may have a hard time passing on Ragland.
