Raiders DE Tyree Wilson gets 'B' grade in first NFL game

The Raiders got the win in Week 1, but it wasn’t all pretty. There were a handful of players that did not perform up to expectations and the Raiders will need them to be better in Week 2 upset the Bills in Buffalo.

One such player is rookie Tyree Wilson, who was selected with the No. 7 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. After missing most of training camp, Wilson did appear in one preseason game (10 snaps) before getting on the field against the Broncos.

In a recent article by Pro Football Focus, they graded all 31 first-round picks after Week 1. Wilson was among the lowest-graded rookies of the week with a grade of 40.5. Here is a snippet of what the site had to say about the former Texas Tech pass rusher:

Wilson had a rough Week 1, posting a team-low 40.5 overall grade. Used primarily in passing situations, he recorded just a single hurry on 32 pass-rush opportunities.

Despite his length, Wilson struggled to shed blocks regardless of his matchup. He’ll likely stay in a rotational role going forward until he can consistently improve that facet of his game.

Wilson is a pretty raw player, so it’s not a surprise that he struggled in Week 1. Plus, with the thin air, it’s not hard to understand why he didn’t have a strong game. But with the status of Chandler Jones still up in the air, the Raiders need Wilson to be better in Week 2.
