CBSSports.com has put together a mock draft, and surprise, surprise, they’ve got the eighth pick of the Bills being used on a quarterback.

CBSSports.com’s draft analyst Rob Rang picks Arkansas’ Tyler Wilson for the Bills at eighth overall. Here’s his reasoning as to why.

8. Buffalo Bills (6-10)
Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas: While incumbent starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is far from the team’s weakest link, few believe he is the caliber of quarterback that can lead Buffalo to a Super Bowl. Furthermore, general manager Buddy Nix has specifically stated he hopes to find the team’s quarterback of the future. Furthermore, he told reporters at the Senior Bowl that he was impressed with Wilson’s arm strength. While new head coach Doug Marrone might prefer his former Syracuse signal-caller Ryan Nassib, Wilson has the production against SEC competition to make Marrone – and the rest of Buffalo — believers.

The mock has two quarterbacks coming off the board prior to Buffalo’s pick at 8. Rang has the Chiefs taking West Virginia QB Geno Smith with the first pick, and Arizona taking USC QB Matt Barkley with the seventh pick right in front of Buffalo.
