The Bills are in dire need of a solid quarterback if they want to transition from mediocrity to a constant AFC East threat.
Ryan Fitzpatrick is clearly not the long-term answer. Ryan Nassib following Doug Marrone and Nathaniel Hackett from Syracuse to Buffalo would have been a great story, but Nassib had a disastrous Senior Bowl. He still has plenty of time to improve his stock, but he will have a extremely hard time proving he is better than Arkansas' Tyler Wilson.
Wilson is 6'2'' and 218 pounds and played in a pro-style offense in college, which will ease the transition from NCAA play to the NFL game.
He has a fairly strong arm and can escape pressure with his mobility. Wilson possesses a very strong presence in the pocket, which allows him to stand strong amid defenders and deliver passes from crowded situations. He can bounce back from hard hits and was arguably the best quarterback at the Senior Bowl.
The main issue with Wilson is that he has a true gunslinger mentality. He tends to force a lot of passes and try to squeeze the ball into very tight windows, which leads to a fair share of turnovers.
Other than that, Wilson appears to be pro-ready. He needs to be coached to tune up his game and must step into his throws and stop relying on just his arm, but every prospect has his flaws.
The Bills need a good quarterback to advance to the next level, and Wilson keeps on impressing. His stock may be quickly rising due to the weak quarterback class, but he can really make an impact for Buffalo.
Wilson owns the strong arm needed to improve the passing game and isn't a project player; he is ready for the NFL now. He could be the guy who takes the reins and thrives for a decade. He has the skill set and isn't much of a risk, providing insurance, which is exactly what Buffalo needs in 2013.
