With the 2013 NFL Draft on the horizon, official visits have teams around the league trying to get as much information as possible about the prospects they're considering drafting. Teams still have questions about medical issues, personal questions, and a few that can only be answered through workouts, so getting in as many visits as possible is a must for any team.
A rundown of some recent visits:
- The Jacksonville Jaguars have reportedly hosted Syracuse offensive lineman Justin Pugh. The Jaguars do have big needs on the right side of their line, as Jaguars blog Big Cat Country points out, and is an All-Big East lineman.
- On the other side of the ball, the Buffalo Bills reportedly had a visit from Georgia pass rusher Jarvis Jones. Jones' draft stock took a big hit following his pro day, but he has a ton of potential for whatever team lands him. The Bills are also looking at offensive options, and Bills blog Buffalo Rumblings considers where Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson might fit in with the team.
- The Pittsburgh Steelers had previously hosted some offensive prospects, but more recent reports have them looking at defensive options. Penn State's Michael Mauti and Clemson's Malliciah Goodman both visited the team, reports Steelers Depot. The Steelers have some history with defensive lineman in the draft, not all of it good, and Steelers blog Behind the Steel Curtain has a detailed look at why things haven't worked out in the past.
- The Philadelphia Eagles looked at Oklahoma offensive tackle Lane Johnson, reports CSN Philly. They may be looking that way because better offensive line prospects will be off the board, speculates Eagles blog Bleeding Green Nation, and they consider what Johnson might be able to contribute to the team.
