Bills GM Doug Whaley attended West Virginia's Pro Day.

West Virginia's top three prospects are all defensive backs.

Buffalo Bills GM Doug Whaley was spotted at West Virginia's Pro Day earlier in the week. The West Virginia Mountaineers have a handful of players who are projected to be selected in the 2016 NFL draft. Among that group, the top trio are all defensive backs. 

Whaley knows a thing or two about the position after playing as a defensive back in college at Pitt, so it's entirely possible that Whaley was there to look at West Virginia's trio of defensive backs.

Safety Karl Joseph is expected to be the first Mountaineer drafted. He's projected as a day two pick. Joseph wasn't able to do much at West Virginia's Pro Day because of a knee injury. He did take part in the bench press and put up 19 reps of 225 pounds. 

K.J. Dillon, another safety, is expected to be drafted on the third day of the draft. Here's a look at Dillon's pro day results, courtesy of NFL.com

Vertical: 28-inch

Short shuttle: 4.43-second

Three-cone time: 7.27-second

Last, cornerback Daryl Worley is also viewed as a day three pick in the draft. Worley ran a 4.54 second 40-yard dash at the pro day. 

It's entirely possible that Whaley was at West Virginia for another player or perhaps to look at possibilities for UDFAs. However, Joseph, Dillon, and Worley could all be on Buffalo's radar.
