Most fans know the Buffalo Bills are searching for a quarterback through the draft, free agency or trade.

According to one mock draft completed by the Sporting News, the Bills will find their next quarterback in the draft.

The Sporting News has the Bills selecting Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson with the eighth overall pick. Wilson threw for 3,387 yards and 21 touchdowns this season with Arkansas. He had a 62.1 completion percentage and a 143.8 quarterback rating.

Vinnie Iyer, who conducted the mock draft, said he believes Wilson will be the best quarterback available when the Bills make their selection. Iyer said quarterbacks Geno Smith and Matt Barkley will be picked before the Bills.

"The Bills are ready to move on from Ryan Fitzpatrick and would like to break in a new quarterback along with their new coach,” Iyer said. “It looks like Wilson or North Carolina State's Mike Glennon will be the third QB picked."
