Oakland Raiders: NFL Scout Expects Tyler Wilson to Be Starting Quarterback, Says 2014 is 'Raider Time'

Next season may be another difficult one for the Oakland Raiders, but 2014 is “Raider Time.”

That is according to former Cleveland Browns scout and current ESPN analyst Matt Williamson, who believes Tyler Wilson will be a stud.

In fact, he expects Wilson to be the Raiders starting quarterback in the not-so-distant future.

Very strong words, considering that they traded for Matt Flynn earlier this offseason, and Flynn is currently No. 1 on the depth chart at quarterback.

However, we’ve seen this story before with Flynn. After he signed a three-year, $19.5 million deal with the Seattle Seahawks last offseason and was expected to be their starter, some guy named Russell Wilson beat him out in training camp, and Flynn is now wearing the Silver and Black a year later.

Will another “Wilson” take his job, this time in Oakland?


Some other notes from Williamson, who did a Q&A chat on Twitter on Wednesday morning:

    No one knows what will happen this year. For all we know, Pryor wins the starting job and takes us to the playoffs! The same goes for Flynn, Wilson and McGloin. Quarterback play will definitely determine the outcome of this coming season, and I feel we have the talent to do just that. We will not be a mediocre team this year by far, and we will prove all these analysts wrong.
