Raiders | Tyler Wilson highly regarded

Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie likes the ability of QB Tyler Wilson to "move around the pocket and toughness to hang in there and see the field." Wilson isn't expected to initially compete for the starting job, or even the primary backup job to either QBs Matt Flynn or Terrelle Pryor, but he could eventually start at some point down the round. "I want him to learn the playbook first," McKenzie said, "make sure he gets behind the center and not the guard."
Wilson struggled in 2012 after head coach Bobby Petrino was fired at the University of Arkansas, as Wilson's numbers were down across the board. Still, he is viewed as having a decent arm and he has an ability to throw on the run. He is a prospect, and not worth drafting except in the deepest of long-term keeper fantasy formats.
