Raiders' draft needs? Many

Apr 23, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Petaluma360

Faced with a defection of talent this offseason and constrained by the salary cap, with a paucity of draft picks, Reggie McKenzie couldn't have picked a worse time to become the Raiders' first general manager since the young Al Davis joined the team as coach and GM back in 1963.

I don't see LB as a big need. Rolando McClain and Aaron Curry were not top 10 draft picks for nothing. These guys were thought of as "Can't miss" players and With Dennis Allen and Reggie McKenzie both highly defense oriented, I look for these two to break out...The loss of DC Chuck Bresnahan was a MAJOR improvement. If there is a need on defense it is corner.

With what we have available to us, this is how I'd draft for now:

3. DT Nick Jean Baptiste from Baylor
4. CB Chase Minnifield from Virginia
5. RB Terrence Gannaway from Baylor
5. Best available OL
6. Best available OL

Then sign some undrafted LBs, DLs, and DBs.

you know, there's a lot of football players out there to choose from. the bright side is that we don't have to pay for a top pick when there is no big money anyways. the not so bright side is most of the high-end picks will be gone! BUT? they are all going to be a bust!, all of them! until we pick!(lol). but there will be plenty to choose from. we just gotta be a little more selective thats all. i guess it's just the fact of watching everyone pick and choose and we have to wait till the next day, at the end of the day!
