ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders have signed fourth-round pick quarterback Tyler Wilson to a contract.

General manager Reggie McKenzie announced the move Tuesday, three days before the first training camp practice in Napa.

The Raiders still have two unsigned draft picks in first-round cornerback D.J. Hayden and second-round offensive lineman Menelik Watson.

Wilson was selected 112th overall by the Raiders in April out of Arkansas. He completed 62 percent of his passes in 37 college games for 7,765 yards, 52 touchdowns and 26 interceptions.

Wilson is competing with Matt Flynn and Terrelle Pryor for the starting job in Oakland.
