Most CBSSports.com draft experts see the Bills grabbing a quarterback at No. 8 overall, either USC's Matt Barkley or West Virginia's Geno Smith.

But they could address another glaring need, offensive line, and draft a quarterback (or two) later to compete with Tarvaris Jackson and Aaron Corp -- the only QBs on the roster. To that end, the Bills are conducting a private workout with Oklahoma's Landry Jones on Monday.

Projected as a third- or fourth-rounder, Jones will follow Smith and Florida State's E.J. Manuel as QBs the Bills have worked out privately.

Bills officials attended Jones' pro day March 13, when he completed 66 of 70 throws.

“I like his junior tape better than his senior tape,” NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock told the Bills' official website. “I know he can make all the throws. I've seen him make all the throws, but like a lot of this year's quarterbacks, it's consistency.”

Buffalo, which released 2012 starter Ryan Fitzpatrick, also could be looking at Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib. New Bills coach Doug Marrone came over from Syracuse, and NFL Films' Greg Cosell recently called Nassib his top QB in the draft class.
