Buffalo Bills host six Ohio State Buckeyes on pre-draft visits.

Six Ohio State Buckeyes were in Buffalo for pre-draft visits on Thursday.

The Buffalo Bills hosted six Ohio State Buckeyes on pre-draft visits according to Peter Schrager of FOX Sports. On Thursday night, Buffalo was spotted dining with the following players.

CB Eli Apple, LB Darron Lee, and OT Taylor Decker are all projected as first round options in the 2016 NFL draft.

SS Vonn Bell and DT Adolphus Washington are projected as day two picks and Cardale Jones could be drafted on day two or early on day three.

Where did the Bills brass take the Buckeyes prospects? The same restaurant they took Tyrod Taylor last season.

Giancarlo’s is a Sicilian steakhouse and pizzeria in Buffalo, NY.

Among the first round prospects, Lee would provide the most immediate impact. In Buffalo’s 3-4 defense, Lee could assume the Will LB role next to Preston Brown. Apple would certainly add talent and depth to Buffalo’s cornerback position, but with two outstanding cornerbacks currently under contract, depth can be added in the middle rounds. Decker, a talented offensive linemen, isn’t necessarily a good fit for Buffalo’s offensive line.

In round two, Bell and Washington both make sense. Bell could compete for a starting safety job and at the very least get added into the rotation. As for Washington, he projects as a 3-4 defensive end.

 Last, Cardale Jones is a legitimate possibility to be drafted as Taylor's backup.
