Best guess on the Raider Draft Board.

If they pick at #3:

1) Fisher
2) Joeckel
3) Floyd
4) Warmack

I suppose there is an opportunity to trade. It does not seem like a lot of teams are geniunely interested to giving away draft picks for a particular player in this draft. Having said that, it would be disappointed if a player like Milliner is taken at #3. Not that he is not a good player, it is just a bit of a reach for a team with so many holes after the recent decisions.

1. fisher
2, floyd
3. l johnson
4. b werner
5. c warmack
i really want a (sack artist) as our first pick. a player that teammates play for because of his strengths and ability's and accomplishments. a player that fans can cheer for when the play starts. BUT? i gotta say, with these two fairly new (qb's) that we have, they are going to need all the protection in the world for their pro first full season start. i don't want to trade down but it also looks like it may happen being that this team is trying to build through the draft. RAIDERS are still trying to find all the right players. therefor, more competition is going t be needed with more new players from the draft. trading down they can still get decent players. so, im not against it. but i truly want that sack artist!

RT, RG, RB, WR, FS, DE. In that order of importance in my mind.

and because of this, i feel we may have a trade partner. we hosted recently (lb)kiko alonzo and (qb)ej manuel. two prospects that may not be top picks? so, maybe that's telling us we may trade down or hoping to land one of these in the later rnds? i just wrote down (ot) cause we are going to need serious protection for our (qb) to get comfortable.

there you go, and now (ss) jahleel addae. all these players aren't first rnd picks but under the radar players that could be great talent additions to compete at the position. so, we may just trade down? at least that's what it seems like to me.
i would still go with #3 floyd and pick up the next best (ot)!

We have so many holes to fill that quantity sounds better than quality at this point, but I want players that will make a positive difference. I keep telling myself that all are good prospects until they take the field & then its boom or bust. My prediction is that we trade down

I'm with Haley`s C and would prefer to trade down to fill some holes. If no suitable dance partner is found, I would pick Floyd. Beyond his physical talents, his life story and desire to be the best is truly inspirational. will be a fan of this kid regardless of who drafts him.

I've always believed quality comes before quantity, but with all the holes we need to fill, trading down for quantity may be the best option. There are some high profile players I would like but if we can get the right players to fill the right holes with more picks then HC may be right and that would be our best bet.

Why? Because the New Era plays "spreadsheet football" and there is justification to pay top-money to the LT position to meet the "acceptable wage distribution (non out of whack contracts)" throughout the roster. Top-money to a DT in a 4-3, not so much. A dominating NT in a 3-4 defense possibly. I think the world thinks Floyd because the Raiders have Veldheer. Fact of the matter, Veldheer is under contract for this season only and the Raiders are not going to win very many games this season. Likely, the Raiders will have to "overpay" to retain Veldheer, not likely. So, if RM has the opportunity to draft a LT to have for the next 4-5 years to avoid overpaying a DT in a 4-3 or overpaying to retain the LT, I think he will go for drafting the LT this year.

I just want a RT so we can begin to build a dominating offensive line. Not convinced about our skill behind Darren though.

YEA IT IS! so, if that's the case, RAIDERS are sticking with #3 pick first overall? now it's just a matter of, who?
this is the first time in RAIDERS history, they have picked the at #3 since the merger of afl/nfl. according to RAIDERS.com
