It's no surprise that Reed was interested in seeing cornerback Artie Burns in person. Burns is Miami's top prospect and is expected to be drafted on the second day of the 2016 NFL draft. On Wednesday, Burns didn't disappoint. Here's how the cornerback performed, courtesy of NFL.com:

Pro Day Results 

Short shuttle: 4.3 seconds 

3-cone: 6.96 seconds 

Vertical: 33 inches 

Broad: 10 feet, 4 inches 

Bench: 7 reps of 225 pounds

Burns did not participate in the 40-yard dash on Wednesday, but he recorded a time of 4.46 at the NFL combine. 

Although many draft analysts expect Buffalo to address their front-seven early in the draft, Burns would be an intriguing option for Buffalo on day two. Buffalo has two outstanding cornerbacks in Stephon Gilmore and Ronald Darby, but are looking for depth behind the duo. Currently, Nickell Robey and Mario Butler are projected as the team's next two corners. 

In addition to Burns, safety Deon Bush is another draft possibility for Buffalo. He's viewed as a day three pick in the draft.

Entering his first season as a coach, it's possible that the Bills give Reed a Hurricanes player to work with in the secondary.
