The Buffalo Bills are heading to Clemson on Friday to visit with Deshaun Watson, as they continue their rounds with the top quarterbacks in the 2017 NFL Draft, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

The Bills have already worked out North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky as well as Notre Dame quarterback Deshone Kizer and Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes II. 

Watson is considered one of the top quarterbacks available in this year’s draft and has been linked to the Bills in several mock drafts. One report suggested Bills general manager Doug Whaley has a particular affinity for Watson. 

Watson threw for over 4,500 yards, 41 touchdowns and 17 interceptions during his final season at Clemson, leading the Tigers to a win in the National Championship game in the process. He also rushed for 629 yards and nine touchdowns. 

One of the lone red flags with Watson is his arm strength. His throws were clocked at 49 miles per hour on the radar gun at the NFL scouting combine, the lowest number among the top quarterbacks in the NFL draft.
