2013 NFL Draft: Tyler Wilson Received Call From Raiders at Walmart


If you’re like the average American, Walmart is the place to buy everything.

For Tyler Wilson, it was the place where he heard about his dream coming true.

On Saturday, Wilson was tired of waiting for his name to be called in the NFL Draft, so he took a trip to Walmart.

Once he got there, a fan asked permission to pose in a picture with him. According to the Log Cabin Democrat, that’s when the Raiders came calling.

“I kind felt like everybody in the store at that point had kind of figured out what’s going on,” he said. “That was fun. We ended up getting out of there without too much harm and ended up getting back and celebrated with friends and family.”

The Raiders selected Wilson 112th overall in the fourth round, a quarterback out of Arkansas.
