The Buffalo Bills are hosting three more players on pre-draft visits Wednesday, the team announced.

A pair of Ohio State prospects -- linebacker Ryan Shazier and cornerback Bradley Roby -- as well as Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk are all visiting the Bills' facility.

The Bills hosted Notre Dame tight end Troy Niklas and Indiana receiver Cody Latimer on Tuesday, which were the first two visits that the team has disclosed. Each NFL team is allowed 30 visits prior to May's draft.

Shazier had an unofficial 40-yard dash of 4.36 seconds at his pro day, which would have ranked among the top performances at any position at the NFL combine. Shazier did not run at the combine because of an injury.

The Bills signed a pair of free-agent linebackers, Brandon Spikes and Keith Rivers, last month, but both have questions as pass defenders. Shazier, who is projected to be an early-round pick, would be a good fit next to Kiko Alonso in sub packages.

Roby is also expected to be an early-round pick. His role would be less certain, at least initially, as the Bills have Stephon Gilmore, Leodis McKelvin, and Corey Graham atop their depth chart at cornerback.

Seastrunk is projected to be a mid-round pick. That could be the sweet spot for the Bills to draft a running back. C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson are both scheduled to become free agents after this season, which creates a long-term need at the position.
