Alabama's Dareus, Purdue's Kerrigan visit with Bills

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Add two defensive linemen, Alabama's Marcell Dareus and Purdue's Ryan Kerrigan, to the list of draft-eligible prospects visiting the Buffalo Bills.

The team confirmed that it hosted both players Wednesday, one day after Heisman Trophy-winning Auburn quarterback Cam Newton visited with coaches at the Bills' facility. Dareus is regarded as a top-five selection in next month's draft, putting him on the radar of a Bills team that holds the No. 3 overall pick and needs pass-rushing help.

The Bills also will travel Friday to South Carolina, where Clemson defensive end Da'Quan Bowers is scheduled to hold a workout.

The Bills currently have 25 draft prospects scheduled for visits before the three-day NFL draft opens April 28.
