With BYU Football’s Pro Day today, NFL teams have lined up visits with a couple BYU football players prior to next month’s draft. Fred Warner is the only surefire draft pick in the 2018 draft, but Jonah Trinnaman has been receiving interest as well.
Here is what is going on in the BYU sports world:
- Fred Warner’s has been a popular name around NFL circles, and the Buffalo Bills used one of their 30 allotted pre-draft visits to host Warner at their facilities. NYup.com says that the Bills have a “pressing need for athletic linebackers”, something they hope Warner can provide.
In addition to the Bills, the Dallas Cowboys’ official website highlighted Warner as a “possible pick” with a breakdown and video of Warner. The Philadelphia Eagles also tweeted a video showcasing Warner’s abilities.
