The Oakland Raiders 2010 draft is over and Raider Nation should be happy.

Round 7 (251) – Stevie Brown, S, 6-0, 211, Michigan

2012 Round 4 pick – Traded for Jason Campbell

The top undrafted free agents that should be on the Raiders radar:

Tony Washington, OT, 6-6, 311, Abilene Christian
LaGarrette Blount, RB, 6-0, 241, Oregon
Ciron Black, OT, 6-4, 327, LSU
Jevan Snead, QB, 6-3, 219, Mississippi

Here are the thoughts of Mike Mayock:

“Oakland’s last two picks have been interesting. They got Bruce Campbell and Jacoby Ford, who are typical Raiders’ picks, but they got them at the right time this year. Campbell is a developmental left tackle, with huge upside. Ford is the fastest wide receiver in the draft, and he has return ability too. Also like thier first two picks, Rolando McClain and Lamarr Houston, which will instantly upgrade their defense.”

  • @FredWalkerJr All the city and county have to do is give millions of dollars worth of land to the developers? It's so simple!

  • @FredWalkerJr I don't pretend to know all the details here, but I know dysfunction when I see it. Great if true; I'm skeptical.

  • @bauce_man82 @FredWalkerJr Why would I have have any faith in Oakland's politicians? There's also a $500M funding gap & a bad A's lease.
