While running backs, offensive lineman, and special teamers were on the field at the combine on Friday, the quarterbacks were meeting with the media. Brandon Beane said this week he wouldn't release which quarterbacks would make visits to Buffalo, although he did say Rosen would. Today both Baker Mayfield and Lamar Jackson shed some light on interviews.

Mayfield says he will meet with the Bills on Friday night, Jackson says he's already met with the Bills. If the Bills want Mayfield at the draft, they'll most likely have to trade up. It could be the same for Jackson, although if you believe draft experts, there's a better chance he'll be there at 21.

Jackson was the headliner of the day in Indianapolis. A report says multiple teams asked him to work out as a wide receiver. Jackson said today "I'm strictly a quarterback... Whoever likes me as a quarterback, that's where I'm going." He also dismissed possibilities of playing wildcat.

Saturday, the quarterbacks will be on the field. Most of them will be throwing, although USC's Sam Darnold will not. Lamar Jackson will not be running the 40-yard dash.

Stay tuned to WGR for the latest on the Bills, the combine, and the NFL Draft!
