Brown notes that, at West Virginia's pro day last week, Smith mentioned having the Bills penciled in on his calendar for "something" on Friday, March 22, and that a private workout with the team is definitely going to be that something.
Smith alludes to this in Brown's report, but the quarterback -- ranked 18th overall on SB Nation's big board of 200 prospects and widely considered the 2013 NFL Draft's top signal-caller -- will probably go through more than a few of these private workouts with interested teams. The Philadelphia Eagles have already conducted their own, for example.
Another important point raised by Brown: Private workouts are not pre-draft visits. The latter are held at official NFL team sites and limited to 30 per franchise, whereas private workouts cannot be hosted by NFL teams, instead typically taking place at a venue closer to either the prospect's hometown or college.
