Raiders blog: Raiders trade down in fourth round, grab Arkansas QB Tyler Wilson

ALAMEDA - The Raiders traded down in the fourth round and used the pick on Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson.

Wilson (6-2, 218) threw for 3,387 yards with 21 touchdowns and 13 interceptions as a senior. Wilson was a first-team All-Southeastern Conference selection as a junior when he passed for 3,638 yards with 24 touchdowns and six interceptions.

The Raiders traded for Matt Flynn to be their starting quarterback earlier this month. Terrelle Pryor is the other quarterback on the roster.

Wilson is a more of a traditional dropback passer along the lines of Flynn. Pryor would appear more suited for a system that would take advantage of his ability to run so Wilson would appear to have a good chance to be Flynn's backup.
