The Buffalo Bills are expected to meet with all the top quarterback prospects going into the 2018 NFL Draft. We know for sure they've met with two thus far. Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph confirmed early this week that he met with the Bills. Now Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield has done the same. 

In an interview with MMQB's Robert Klemko down in Mobile, Alabama, Mayfield says he's met "at length" with the Bills, Dolphins, Jets, and Saints. The Jets and Dolphins pick ahead of the Bills at 6th and 11th. The Saints pick behind the Bills at 27th. 

If the Bills want Mayfield, they'll likely have to trade up to get him. The Denver Broncos are a favorite to land Mayfield at the 5th pick. They're coaching staff is one of the two coaching at the Senior Bowl. Director of the Senior Bowl Phil Savage has said that the Broncos requested to have Mayfield on their team, adding fuel to the perception that they could take him at five. 

Mayfield was the best player in college football last season, winning the Heisman Trophy and putting up just under 5,000 yards and 48 touchdowns. He measured at the Senior Bowl at 6 feet 3/8 inches tall, with a hand size of 9 and 1/2 inches. The exact same hand size as Mitchell Trubisky, who went 2nd overall to the Bears in 2017, and similar to Drew Brees and Russell Wilson's. 

Mayfield and Wyoming's Josh Allen will be focal points of the Senior Bowl, which is Saturday at 2:30pm.
