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.”

  • Wouldn't be surprised if Lofton decision is tomorrow and not today. Depends on wording.

  • It's only a matter of time on Lofton. Heeney already stole playing time. Don't get keeping him.

  • McKenzie should be criticized for not taking the same out on Curtis Lofton's contract. Unless date is wrong, $3.5M was guaranteed today.

  • McKenzie should be applauded for smart contract structure with Allen and being willing to take the out he created.
