1.055Teddy Bridgewater, QB
from Louisville
Trading down is/will be a legitimate by the approach Oakland Raiders, and one they should take. But when a QB with the demeanor, stature and ability that of Brigewater, this was too good of an opportunity to pass on. The Raiders have been lacking an identity on the offensive end for years. Teddy thus stabilizes one of the worst teams in the NFL, wipes away the past memory of JaMarcus and now allows the Team to focus on building around their new Franchise player.
2.2052Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB
from Georgia Tech
The Raiders desperately needed an edge rusher to compliment the additions of Justin Tuck & LaMarr Woodley. Attaochu fits Tarver's scheme like a glove. Will fill (departed) Lamarr Houston's role in Hybrid Buck role. Can play WDE/SLB/WLB. Hard-working player who will add versatility, speed and stability to a sub-par Defense lacking such.
3.0367Jarvis Landry, WR
from LSU
After selecting Bridgewater 5th overall, the Raiders now need to add weapons around the heir to the Black Hole Throne. Landry can immediately make an impact inside at the Y. His catch radius, quick footing and physical nature (even for his size) is most appealing in Oakland. A WR Corp of James Jones, Rod Streater, Andre Holmes, Denarius Moore and now Landry, is now "star stuttered", but certainly talented for the grooming of a young QB.
4.07107Christian Jones, ILB
from Florida State
Like Reggie McKenzie, we are clearly building for the future. Staying true to the Board, Jones was just too good of an athlete to pass up here. Oakland lacks severe talent at almost every position, including the Linebackers, where Jones will play the bulk of his snaps. Christian versatility was key to his selection; has experience at all 3 LB spots, and WDE as well. Depth is key to constructing winning programs....and Oakland has virtually none.
4.20120Dexter McDougle, CB
from Maryland
Bit surprised to see McDougle to be available in the 100's. His ability to close, willingness to hit and ball skills will earn his immediate PT on the field via ST and field corner situations. Has vital experience on the Boundary. With Tarell Brown, D.J Hayden and Carlos Rogers already in the fold, McDougle won't be immediately forced into heavy duty as he recovers from shoulder surgery. His #34 CB positional ranking does not do justice to Dexter. Watch. The. Tape.
