Armed with a clean bill of health, Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones continues to make the pre-draft rounds.
Next up? A team that has been spending most of its time eyeballing quarterbacks.
Per a league source, Jones will visit with the Bills on Friday, at a time when they seem to be far more interested in guys who run the offense, not the defense.
But the Bills need to be ready at No. 8, in the event someone else takes quarterback Geno Smith before Buffalo is on the clock. The options at that point will include: (1) taking a different quarterback; (2) trading down for a different quarterback; (3) using the pick on someone else.
That someone else could be Jones, who could play outside or inside linebacker in the Bills’ new 3-4 defense.
Of course, that assumes Jones would also be available at No. 8. At this point, no one really knows where anyone will or won’t be in the top 10.
