08:07 PM ET 01.25 | The Senior Bowl is this Saturday, and while the game itself may not seem important to college football fans, it serves as one final opportunity for many players to show what they've got to NFL scouts. One of the players high on scouts' lists right now is Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson, and many believe he could end up being the first quarterback taken in this April's draft. One team that has been commonly attached to Wilson seems to be the Buffalo Bills, who pick eighth in the draft. Buffalo has been very vocal about wanting to upgrade at quarterback, and while free agency may still be a route they travel, it's more likely that they draft a franchise signal caller for the future. Wilson has without a doubt been the most consistent passer at Senior Bowl practice all week, and many people are starting to get even more serious about his NFL potential. NFL analyst Charles Davis told BuffaloBills.com that Wilson reminds him of former Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins, who used the Senior Bowl to beef up his value and eventually get selected by the Washington Redskins.

That would make a lot of sense but is he worth a top 10 Pick? I'd go defense and wait until 2nd or maybe third round Nassib's value is escalated by Marrone Coaching him!

At least the Raiders keep the 2013 #1 !!!!Go Raiders !!!

That's okay I expect them to take Geno Smith so it's a lost pick. He has some maturity problems

Cousins was a third or fourth round pick last year. Why is a QB that reminds a scout of him a 1st rounder this year?

Totally agree. There is no QB worth the 8 pick in this draft. Second round will have the same value choices. They could trade that second round pick , add in a fourth round pick and move into the back end of that first round if they want to get a QB.

So, he reminds some of a fourth round QB pick in last years draft.

LOL, yeah I agree, just what has Cousins done so far in his pro career??? Yes Kirk "might" be a good QB in the future, but let's not get ahead of ourselfs, or we will start comparing Cousins to Matt Flynn!!! I do think that Wilson will go in the 2 round, but only because the 2013 NFL draft is weak at the QB position. Just my opinion!!
