DeForest Buckner has visits scheduled with the Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars, San Diego Chargers and Tennessee Titans, according to Aaron Wilson of NFPost.com.

The Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year and All-American selection finished 2015 with 83 tackles, 17 tackles for a loss and 10.5 sacks for the Oregon Ducks. He's 6-7, 291 pounds, ran a 5.05 40-yard dash and has a 32-inch vertical leap. But what's most impressive may be his nearly 12-inch hands. During his pro day, Buckner bench pressed 225 pounds 21 times.

Aside from the above teams, he could also go to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL Draft, in which case Buckner would play for former Ducks coach Chip Kelly.
