Raiders DE Tyree Wilson struggles again in Week 2

When the Raiders selected Tyree Wilson with the No. 7 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, the expectation was that he would be brought along slowly behind Maxx Crosby and Chandler Jones. Coming out of Texas Tech, Wilson was a big, athletic defensive end who needed time to perfect his craft.

It didn’t help that Wilson missed most of training camp and the preseason with a foot injury that slowed his progress. But the loss of Chandler Jones has elevated Wilson into the starting lineup and the results haven’t been great.

According to Pro Football Focus, Wilson has recorded just one pressure on 43 snaps through two games. He did not record a single pressure on 38 snaps against the Bills in Week 2.

There is no reason to panic when it comes to Wilson, but the Raiders need to find a pass rush opposite of Maxx Crosby soon. The Raiders are hopeful that Wilson can speed up his development. But that just hasn’t happened yet.

He’ll get a chance to go up against a less-than-average offensive line in Week 3 when the Raiders host the Steelers. Maybe his breakout game will happen under the lights on Sunday Night Football.
