ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders have added another unproven quarterback to the mix, selecting Arkansas' Tyler Wilson after trading down in the fourth round of the NFL draft.

Wilson joins a quarterback room that already has Matt Flynn, acquired earlier this month in a deal from Seattle, and third-year pro Terrelle Pryor. Oakland traded former starter Carson Palmer to Arizona after acquiring Flynn as the rebuilding team has turned to the future.

Oakland also added Colorado tight end Nick Kasa, Central Florida running back Latavius Murray, Tennessee tight end Mychal Rivera and Oklahoma defensive tackle Stacy McGee in the sixth round Saturday, and San Diego State receiver Brice Butler and Missouri Western defensive end David Bass in the seventh round.
