The Oakland Raiders have taken Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson with their fourth-round pick in the NFL draft.

The Raiders traded down 12 spots in the fourth round Saturday before taking Wilson. The pick gives Oakland three quarterbacks on the roster with recently acquired Matt Flynn and Terrelle Pryor.

The Raiders moved down in the round after Philadelphia jumped up to take quarterback Matt Barkley with the first pick in the fourth round. The New York Giants then traded ahead of them to take Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib before Oakland took Wilson.

Wilson completed 62.1 percent of his passes with 21 touchdowns and 13 interceptions last season.

The Raiders added a sixth-round pick from Tampa Bay in the deal. Oakland has four sixth-round picks and one seventh-rounder left on Saturday.
