Raiders Draft Day Rumors 2011

Remember these are all just rumors…

1. Raiders are willing to move back into the first round for the right player. (Believed to be for Nevada QB Colin Kaepernick)

2. Al Davis doesn’t think the Raiders have many needs.

3. Jimmy Smith  has been removed from the Raiders draft board (This is a purely smoke and totally incorrect, but heck I’m posting rumors here.)

**Check back, more rumors are sure to fly as the day is just getting started**
