Bills work out Trubisky, Deshaun Watson to visit 49ers, Cardinals

With just two-plus weeks before the NFL draft, team evaluations of the draft's top quarterbacks are still ongoing.

The Buffalo Bills conducted a private workout of North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky on Sunday, attended by coach Sean McDermott and club owner Terry Pegula, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. A day earlier, Pegula was also on hand for a Bills workout of Notre Dame's DeShone Kizer. Other activity involving some of the draft's top quarterbacks:

» The Kansas City Chiefs hosted Trubisky on a pre-draft visit Friday, per Pelissero.

» San Francisco 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed he will meet with Clemson's Deshaun Watson Tuesday morning, a visit first reported by NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

» Watson will follow his 49ers meeting with a visit to the Arizona Cardinals Wednesday, while Kizer has a Monday visit with the Cardinals, Rapoport reported.

» Shanahan also confirmed a meeting with Trubisky last week, per Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.

Of those four clubs, the 49ers have the greatest immediate need for a quarterback, though the Bills, Cardinals and Chiefs could be interested in a rookie quarterback to develop as a starter for the future. Clubs are known for misdirection at this time of year to cloud their draft intentions, but Pegula's presence at the workouts of Trubisky and Kizer would suggest a credible level of seriousness in the former Tar Heels star by the Bills.

The NFL draft will be held April 27-29 in Philadelphia.

Watson, Trubisky, Kizer and Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes are regarded as the draft's top four quarterback prospects. Which will be selected first, however, is a tough projection. analyst David Carr wrote last week that Trubisky is the most pro-ready quarterback in the draft. NFL Network draft expert Mike Mayock ranks Kizer, because of his long-term potential, as the best of the group, while NFL Network analyst Charley Casserly projects Watson as the first QB selected, to the Chiefs at No. 27 overall.
