The Raiders traded for Flynn after he spent last season riding the pine behind Russell Wilson in Seattle. The Seahawks traded him in part to give him a shot at a starting job. The Raiders went on to draft Tyler Wilson in the third round, and he has been blowing people away in spring minicamps.
Obviously, it's way too early to be anointing Wilson the starter, but he's showing off all the traits that got him noticed at Arkansas. We'll see how this competition develops once they put on pads. It's more likely that Wilson is competing for the No. 2 spot with Terrelle Pryor. On the other hand, this wouldn't be the first time Flynn lost the starting job to a third-round rookie named Wilson, so we'll keep an eye out on this situation.
