According to San Francisco Chronicle, rookie quarterback Tyler Wilson is now fourth on the Raiders depth chart behind Matt Flynn, Terrelle Pryor and Matt McGloin.
At Sunday’s practice, Matt Flynn, Terrelle Pryor and then undrafted Matt McGloin took turns in the two-minute drill, driving the team downfield. Fourth-round pick Tyler Wilson watched and when the buzzer sounded, jogged on to the next drill. He barely threw the ball all practice, as he has fallen to fourth on the depth chart after a week and half at training camp.
“Well, I think he’s got the physical tools,” coach Dennis Allen said. “I think he’s behind from a mental part of the game, and that’s where he’s got to continue to work to improve.”
Wilson didnt look very happy after practice, but stayed positive.
“I’m throwing ball pretty well, it’s just a matter of figuring out where it’s supposed to go,” Wilson said.
I’m a little surprised that Pryor is ahead of Wilson right now.

Former backup running back Taiwan Jones is looking like an NFL cornerback so far at Oakland Raiders training camp in Napa. The hometown kid has become a favorite of the Raider Nation even though he has not seen the field nearly enough.
During the 2011 draft, Reggie McKenzie actually had Jones pegged as a cornerback not a running back when he was in the Green Bay Packers draft...
The Oakland Raiders have released their first depth chart for the upcoming season via the team’s official website, which can be seen here or in the picture above. Although training camp has just about a week and half since its opening, it is always a good opportunity to take a look at how the positional battles are developing, with eyes set […]
The Oakland Raiders once had one of the best defenses in the league, but that hasn’t been the case for a while. This offseason, general manager Reggie McKenzie did his best to fix that problem by bringing in some veteran players who can help the Raiders new and improved secondary in more ways than one.
Last year the Raiders were ranked 23rd in interceptions as they only had 11...
Rookie cornerback D.J. Hayden will be held out of the Raiders preseason opener this week after suffering a hamstring injury on Monday.
Raiders head coach Dennis Allen confirmed that they’re keeping Hayden out of this week’s game because of offseason abdominal surgery.
“We’ll see where he’s at when we come back to work Wednesday,” Allen said, via the AP. “It’s more...
Raiders CB D.J. Hayden is out for their preseason opener against the Dallas
Cowboys, according to Michael Wagaman of the Associated Press. Hayden had
noticeably pulled up with a tight hamstring during Monday’s practice, but head
coach Dennis Allen said that was not why Hayden was out for the opener.
According to Allen, the Raiders new cornerback will miss their game against...
Reviews for Raiders rookie cornerback DJ Hayden from training camp have been generally positive, kinda like that new movie with a roided up Matt Damon about Occupy Wall Street in space or something. That’s good considering he was virtually absent for all of the team’s offseason activities after undergoing abdominal surgery related to his near-death injury last fall.
We all will...
The Raiders are now a week and a half into their 2013 Training Camp, and are less than a week from seeing the field for the first time, facing the Dallas Cowboys this Friday, August 9th.
The media access becomes more restricted after the second preseason game so this is the prime time to attempt to glean what the 2013 team will become.
Here are some notes, thoughts and tidbits...
Last off-season, I had the Raiders as one of the worst teams in the NFL going into 2012, as so many years of poor roster management by Al Davis and the previous regime left new GM Reggie McKenzie pretty powerless in his first off-season with the team, in terms of cap flexibility and draft picks. Hue Jackson’s trade for Carson Palmer left them without a 1st round pick...
