The Oakland Raiders signed fourth-round draft pick quarterback Tyler Wilson on Tuesday.

Wilson was selected 112th overall by the Raiders in April. He played in 37 career games with 24 starts in four years at Arkansas, setting program records with 7,765 career passing yards on 593 completions. He also totaled 52 touchdown passes, becoming just the fourth quarterback in Arkansas history to top 50 career scoring tosses.

He was a finalist for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. He became the first Arkansas quarterback to earn first-team All-SEC honors after establishing program records with 3,368 passing yards and 24 touchdowns as a junior.

The Raiders have now signed eight of their 10 selections from the 2013 NFL Draft.
