Rookie QB Tyler Wilson Signs with Raiders


It is official, rookie fourth round pick Tyler Wilson, from Arkansas, whom the Raiders selected with the 112th overall pick is now officially a Raider. The Raiders have now signed 8 out of their 10 draft picks. Number one pick cornerback DJ Hayden, a projected starter, is still unsigned. But with Wilson having his contract finally done and training only a day away, the rookie can start the 2013 camp on time and get to work on becoming the Raiders starting QB, yes that is right I said starting QB. Believe it or not but I do believe Tyler Wilson will be the Raiders starter by the 2014 season if not at some point through this season. Tyler Wilson played for Arkansas from 2008-2012 where he threw for 52 touchdowns and only 26 picks and at one point was projected to go in the first round. Wilson has looked great at OTA’s and I seriously do not believe that there is anything that Matt Flynn can do that Tyler Wilson cannot. It is going to be interesting to see if Matt Flynn loses the starting QB job for the second season in a row and to a rookie QB with the last name Wilson! Ironic isn’t it? I do not see that happening for one reason only and that is Reggie McKenzie. Reggie brought Flynn into Oakland to start week 1 and that is what is going to happen. But there is a great chance come week 1 that Tyler Wilson will be the No. 2 QB bumping Terrelle Pryor down to No. 3.

What do you think? Is Tyler Wilson the QB of the future for the Raiders?  Is Matt Flynn the real deal? Or should the Raiders give Terrelle Pryor a chance to start?

    Let them compete first and see what happens.

    We have been watching lousy football decisions for 10 years. We are finally entering an era that we have real leadership who have the ability to manage and evaluate talent. I say let Reggie and Allen make the call on who they want to start and make the adjustments when they feel it needs to be made. They have shown management skills to take apart something that wasn’t very good and are now trying to put together a group of players who must have an attack attitude and hopefully the skill set to show improvement of a terrible run organization. I don’t expect the Raiders to make the superbowl but I can live with a team that is competitive and will hussle every week. Once we begin to read or hear that coming to Oakland is no longer a give me game then we know the organization is making the correct decisions. If the Raiders can show improvement we will see the tarps come off the seats. Most of us have been Raider fans when we filled the stadium. You put a winning or competitive team on the field the fans will come. It hurts all of us to hear the jokes every year about the Raiders and how the organization is run. We are use to the local media and their love for across the bay. When improvement is shown the “national media” will begin to recognize the Raiders. The local media will not, but it really doesn’t matter what they think or say. We have learned not to watch local TV sports because they do not cover the Raiders except for a few seconds, so you watch NFL Net,ESPN or read print media from outside the bay area for Raider news. It places like here ( give us Raider information. Thankfully we have our computer to keep up with the Raiders. Just win Baby…

      Right on, Jocko!!

      There is one thing we really do need here, though: a new stadium. I believe the field at his stadium, two feet below sea level, is responsible for many football injuries. I can’t say that I have EVER seen an RB turn the corner like Run DMc. So to make him play on High Ankle Sprain Field (The is criminal.

      Tyler Wilson is a gamble, too. Like most of our recent moves. Reggie seems particularly gifted at recognizing talent. Let’s hope he can someday be a quality NFL QB.
