Bills hosting Cody Latimer, Troy Niklas for visits

Former Indiana receiver Cody Latimer has seen his draft stock rise over the past month.

He had an excellent Pro Day, where the 6-3, 215-pound prospect timed a 4.39-to-4.43 40-yard dash, according to The Baltimore Sun.

Adding a 39-inch vertical leap, Latimer is creeping his way up the draft boards and onto plenty of teams' radars.

Among those are the Buffalo Bills, which is hosting Latimer and former Notre Dame tight end Troy Niklas for visits on Tuesday.

Latimer caught 72 passes for 1,096 yards and nine touchdowns this past season, earning second-team All-Big Ten honors.

Niklas is a big-bodied tight end at 6-6, 270 pounds. A strong blocker on the line of scrimmage, Niklas, who backed up Tyler Eifert before becoming a starter in 2013, caught 32 passes for 498 yards and five touchdowns.
