The Bills are quickly ramping up the QB visits as now word could be coming out that former Wisconsin and NC State QB Russell Wilson is in town for a visit. This is all based on a tweet from the aforementioned Mr. Wilson saying he just landed in Buffalo. Now while we all love our dear city to death most wouldn’t think of it as an ideal vacation spot in the middle of the NFL Draft season.
Wilson brings playmaking ability from the QB spot with both his arm and his legs. He’s a bit of an unconventional QB and has drawn comparisons to a certain former Bills QB who once wore the number seven and had a brand of cereal named after him. He has more than enough arm strength to make all the necessary throws and his ability to escape the pocket and make plays happen is up their with the tops in this class.
What you have to worry about with Wilson is mainly his height. If he was two inches taller he’s a first or second round pick but as it is questions exist about how well he could perform in the league where every player is bigger, and faster. He has to be able to see and find the passing lanes in order to make it work at his size.
We currently rank Wilson as the #7 QB in this year’s draft class. We currently put his stock at 4th-5th Round.
It’s also interesting to note that we have confirmed that the Bills have either brought in or attended the pro day of the following QB’s in this draft class;
Robert Griffin III*-Baylor
Ryan Tannehill-Texas A&M
Brandon Weeden-Oklahoma State
Kirk Cousins-Michigan State
Ryan Lindley-San Diego State
EDIT: We have since confirmed Wilson is in Buffalo visiting with the Bills today.
