NEW YORK - Of the 23 top draft prospects who accepted invitations to attend the NFL draft, six had official visits with the Buffalo Bills.

Here’s what four of them told me about how those visits went:

E.J. MANUEL, quarterback, Florida State: “I think Buffalo’s probably going to take a quarterback, and I think they’re going to take one early. So I hope I impressed them enough that they believe in me, and that I’m their guy … We went over the offence and things like that, which was really good. And I had really good meetings with the head coach (Doug Marrone) as well.”

BARKEVIOUS MINGO, defensive end, LSU: “It went really well. I had a really good time up there. Coaches seemed to like how I play and stuff, so it was good … We went over a lot of stuff (about how he might fit into their hybrid defence). But mostly it was just trying to meet me as a person. Very little football. But it was a pretty good day.”
