Tyler Wilson seems destined to become the Oakland Raiders starter over Matt Flynn and Terrelle Pryor


Tyler Wilson is the best quarterback in Oakland.

With competition underway to become Oakland’s starting quarterback this autumn, rookie Tyler Wilson has made a “very big impression” on the Raiders during the first week of offseason practices.

Taken out of Arkansas with the 112th pick in last month’s draft, the 23-year-old Wilson “looks a little better than (the Raiders)” expected.

The Silver and Black acquired signal-caller Matt Flynn from the Seattle Seahawks on April 1 in exchange for a fifth-round selection in 2014 and a “conditional” late-round choice in 2015.

Removed from a 4-12 finish in the AFC West, the Raiders aren’t exactly brimming with offensive talent and Flynn doesn’t possess the type of arm that can compensate for Oakland’s shortcomings.

Battling Flynn and Terrelle Pryor for time under center, the 6-foot-2, 215 pound Wilson has a great chance to become the man in “The Town.”

Flynn and Pryor have a combined three starts and all three competitors are learning a new offensive system.

Therefore, the former Razorback should not be considered an underdog.

Tough, poised, accurate and able to throw when pressured, Wilson is more skilled than both Flynn and Pryor.

Ultimately, don’t be surprised if Tyler Wilson is directing Oakland’s attack when the Raiders open their season against the Colts in Indianapolis on September 8.
