2013 NFL Draft: Raiders Select QB Tyler Wilson in Fourth Round


With the 112th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Oakland Raiders selected quarterback Tyler Wilson out of Arkansas.

In his senior year, Wilson completed 249/401 passes for 3,387 yards, 21 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

Here are some of his qualities, according to NFL.com:

  • Good size and overall strength for a pocket passer.
  • Tough player who bounces up after hits.
  • Steps up into the pocket and stands tall to deliver the ball under duress -– which is just part of outstanding leadership qualities.
  • Arm strength is very impressive in the intermediate game.

The Raiders traded down from pick No. 100 with the Buccaneers to acquire this selection and an additional sixth round pick.
