Raiders Draft Recap

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

The Raiders selected productive football players early and saved projects with potential for the later rounds.

Round 1 (8) – Rolando McClain, LB, 6-3, 254, Alabama
Round 2 (49) – Lemarr Houston, DE, 6-2, 305, Texas
Round 3 (69) – Jared Veldheer, OT, 6-8, 321, Hillsdale
Round 3 (85) – Traded to Cleveland for Kamerion Wimbley
Round 4 (106) – Bruce Campbell, OT, 6-5, 310, Maryland
Round 4 (108) – Jacoby Ford, WR, 5-9, 181, Clemson (Acquired by trade for Kirk Morrison & a 5th)
Round 5 (138) – Walter McFadden, DB, 5-11, 175, Auburn
Round 5 (153) – Traded to Jacksonville for Quentin Groves
Round 6 (190) – Travis Goethel, LB, 6-2, 240, Arizona
Round 7 (215) – Jeremy Ware, CB, 5-10, 180, Michigan State
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.”

  • @tyschalter Going to see a lot of 3 safety alignments this year. Reaction to rise of the tight end.

  • To have teams mathematically spaced in value so perfectly seems unlikely. RT @eamonfitzgerald: @ChrisHansenNFL why?

  • Yeep. RT @ThomasGower: @ChrisHansenNFL I regard them as fun approximations, not to be taken seriously in the real world.

  • Correction: NFL teams values are on a near perfect power curve. That seems strange. I'd assume more gaps in the values.
