The Oakland Raiders took Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson with their fourth round pick in the NFL Draft on Saturday. They traded down 12 spots in the fourth round before taking Wilson. The pick gives Oakland three quarterbacks on the roster with recently acquired Matt Flynn and Terrelle Pryor.
The Raiders moved down after Philadelphia jumped up to take USC quarterback Matt Barkley with the first pick in the fourth round. The New York Giants then traded ahead of Oakland to take Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib. Wilson completed 62 percent of his passes with 21 touchdowns and 13 interceptions last season.
Oakland then made Colorado tight end Nick Kasa the first of their four sixth-round picks. The 172nd overall pick had 25 catches for 391 yards and three touchdowns last season for Colorado.
Central Florida running back Latavius Murray went next at 181st overall. He rushed for 1,106 yards on 198 carries with 15 touchdowns last season. He also caught 27 passes for 231 yards and 4 TD.
Oakland then selected Tennessee tight end Mychal Rivera and Oklahoma defensive tackle Stacy McGee with the 184th and 205th overall picks to cap its busy sixth round. McGee could help the Raiders, who lost Richard Seymour, Tommy Kelly and Desmond Bryant to free agency.
The Raiders then took San Diego State wide receiver Brice Butler in the seventh round with the 209th overall pick. Butler had 24 catches for 347 yards and four touchdowns last season at San Diego State. He played the previous three years at Southern California before transferring for his senior season.
The Raiders finished the draft by taking defensive end David Bass with the 233rd pick out of Missouri Western. Bass had a school-record 40.5 sacks in his career for the Division II school.
