2013 NFL Draft: Tyler Wilson to visit Buffalo Bills, per report

The Arkansas quarterback only has one visit scheduled at this point, and it's to Orchard Park, NY.

Jim Corbett of USA Today reports that Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson, one of the top signal callers available in the 2013 NFL Draft, has just one visit lined up with an NFL team at this point - and that the team is none other than the Buffalo Bills. That visit will apparently take place next Friday, on April 12.

A productive passer in the tough SEC over the last two years (62.3 percent completions, 7,025 yards, 45 touchdowns and 19 interceptions), the 6'2", 215-pound Wilson has nonetheless flown well under the radar during the pre-draft process. In fact, the lack of buzz surrounding Wilson is the focus of Corbett's article, which is a worthwhile read if you're interested in Wilson as a prospect (or even if you're not).

There are two main reasons that Wilson has fallen out of favor a bit in the last few months: he had the smallest hands at the Combine, leading to questions about ball security at the next level; and durability, as he's coming off a season in which he was routinely battered behind a bad offensive line on a 4-8 football team. Still, Wilson comes from a pro-style system and checks off the production and character check boxes with ease; there's a lot to like about him as a prospect.

Wilson is the latest in a very long line of quarterback prospects that have visited, or will visit, One Bills Drive this spring. Four players have already been in town: Geno Smith of West Virginia, E.J. Manuel of Florida State, Mike Glennon of North Carolina State and Landry Jones of Oklahoma.
