Tyler Wilson's trip to Walmart was very productive

All the former Arkansas quarterback wanted was a few snacks and an NFL future. With one trip to the big box retailer, he had both.

Famous Arkansan Tyler Wilson was at Walmart when he got word that the Oakland Raiders had used a fourth-round pick to draft him.

The former Razorbacks quarterback recounted the experience to the Log Cabin Democrat (the most perfect newspaper name ever):

"I was fed up with watching so we just got out and then get the phone call there in Walmart, of all places, but that's good being from Arkansas."

Walmart's corporate headquarters are located in the Natural State, making this the most quintessential Arkansas story since that whole "man from Hope" thing.
