OAKLAND (CBS Sports) — Tyler Wilson answered the biggest call of his life while posing for a picture with a fellow Walmart shopper in Greenwood, Arkansas.

The former Arkansas Razorbacks quarterback had grown restless waiting to hear his name called in last weekend’s NFL Draft, so Wilson did what any Arkansan worth his salt would do: He headed to Walmart.

While there, a fan asked for a picture with Wilson, who got the call about being drafted in the fourth round by the Oakland Raiders as the two posed.

“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,” Wilson said.
