On Monday it was Buffalo. Next stop on the Arthur Moats pre-draft tour of NFL teams: Philadelphia.

Moats, the former James Madison defensive end who won last season's Buck Buchanan award for the best I-AA defensive player in the country, was one of six NFL Draft prospects wined and dined by the Bills Monday.

"It went really well," Moats texted Tuesday before boarding a flight for Philadelphia, where he's scheduled to meet with the Eagles later this week.

The visit included individual meetings with new Bills head coach Chan Gailey and defensive coordinator George Edwards.

Buffalo is switching to a 3-4 defensive alignment this season, and Moats said "they're looking at me playing inside (linebacker)."

Moats said he was joined in Buffalo by probable top-five pick Russell Okung, an offensive tackle from Oklahoma State; another projected first-rounder, defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul of South Florida; West Virginia quarterback Jarrett Brown; Southern Cal offensive lineman Charles Brown; and defensive lineman Doug Worthington of Ohio State.

The Bills have the ninth overall pick in the first round of the three-day NFL Draft, which begins April 22.

In addition to his stop in Philadelphia, Moats is scheduled to visit the 49ers in San Francisco next week. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
