'IT WAS TOUGH'
As he tumbled down the draft board, Tyler Wilson says that he was so fed up with watching the process he made a trip to Walmart. That's when he received the call.
Heading into the 2013 NFL Draft, the Oakland Raiders had seven selections to work with. But thanks to three trade downs performed by general manager Reggie McKenzie and his crew, this year’s draft class brings ten new players to the Silver & Black. Seven of those were selected during the third day of the process, which held rounds four to [...]
According to Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports, the Oakland Raiders were two minutes away from drafting cornerback D.J. Hayden with the third overall pick. Right before they pulled the trigger, the Dolphins called them to trade up to nab Dion Jordan. The Raiders ultimately took a risk by trading down, but they were still able to get Hayden. When Oakland Raiders general manager...
According to Bill Williamson of ESPN.com, there’s been a lot of chatter that the Oakland Raiders may take USC quarterback with the 42nd overall pick. #Raiders hearing a lot of Matt Barkley chatter at 42. Reggie was at his pro day. Don’t know how I feel about that one yet. — Bill Williamson (@espn_afcwest) April 26, 2013 I could see this happening. I don’t think the Raiders...
After going with cornerback D.J. Hayden in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft on Thursday, the Oakland Raiders went back to work on the second day of the player selection process with two picks to work with. Differently from what happened yesterday, the Silver & Black stayed put and did not negotiated any of the selections. Instead, they [...]
The Oakland Raiders used their 4th round pick on Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson in this year’s draft.
Wilson is a guy that can come in and compete for the Raiders tarting job with Terrelle Pryor and Matt Flynn.

The post Raiders draft QB Tyler Wilson appeared first on Pro Football Zone.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Matt Flynn will be the Oakland Raiders starting quarterback heading into next week’;s organized team actitives.
“We’re going to begin with Matt Flynn,” said general manager Reggie McKenzie. “Now, the quarterbacks who will be on the roster from that point on, they will all compete. Like I said, every position, it’s all about getting...
The Oakland Raiders took former Houston cornerback last night, using the No 12 overall selection to get him.
According to respected evaluator Greg Cosell, of NFL Films, that was a good move.
"I would make the argument that Hayden is the most physically gifted corner prospect in this draft class, with his impressive combination of sudden movement, change of direction...
The Oakland Raiders have selected Central Florida running back Latavius Murray with their second pick in the sixth round of the NFL draft.
Oakland took Murray 181st overall on Saturday with a pick acquired earlier in the day from Tampa Bay for moving down in the fourth round.
Murray rushed for 1,106 yards on 198 carries with 15 touchdowns last season. He also caught 27 passes for...
This story could definitely be taken the wrong way, but I’m just going to assume that Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson is comfortable with himself, and most importantly was tired of stressing NFL Draft politics.
Wilson was rumored to be drafted anywhere from the 2nd round to the 4th round, so instead of sitting in front of the TV stressing, Wilson continued to live his life.
Reggie McKenzie has quietly put together one of the best offseasons in all of football this spring. Few seem to realize just how big of a hole the past regime put the second-year general manager in.
In 2012, the team had very little salary cap space and didn't have a draft pick until the compensatory picks in the third round. McKenzie went to work in March...
The Raiders addressed their needs on the offensive line by drafting Florida State offensive tackle Menelik Watson with the 42nd pick of Friday’s second round of the draft.
This was the second pick Oakland got from Miami in exchange for the third pick on Thursday.
Watson played on the right side of the line at FSU, so it seems as if Mr. Universe Jared Veldheer will remain at left...
What better place for former Arkansas QB Tyler Wilson to get his draft phone call from the Oakland Raiders than at a Walmart?
Here’s a recap and analysis of the players the Raiders took in the 2013 NFL Draft:
D.J. Hayden, cornerback, Houston – first round, 12th overall – Reggie McKenzie trades down to get his guy. Seen as the cornerback of the future. Will compete with Tracy Porter and Mike Jenkins to start.
Menelik Watson, offensive tackle, Florida State – second round, 42nd overall – Extremely...
One of the more amusing connections between the players that GM Reggie McKenzie has drafted in his first two years has been that almost half of the players drafted were born in foreign countries.
Last year's draft included two such players - England's Jack Crawford and and Angola's Christo Bilukidi.
The trend continued yesterday when both of Reggie McKenzie'...
