Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Bills have lined up a visit with Clemson running back C.J. Spiller for next week.
We’re also told that Spiller will participate in the Clemson Pro Day workout, running position drills and cone drills. It’s presently unknown whether he’ll rest on his 40-yard dash from the Scouting Combine, which generated an official time of 4.37 seconds, slower than both the unofficial number and the times measured by multiple scouts in attendance.
Though some regard the running back position as fungible, with few tailbacks sufficiently special to merit a high draft pick, Spiller could be regarded as an exception. There’s already talk that the 49ers could try to move into the top ten in order to get him.
Then again, the last thing that anyone will ever admit to at this time of the year is the truth.
