The NFL Draft is coming up and teams are preparing for every possible situation. Teams, their scouts and their front office personnel have been working non stop to analyze their current needs, assess their off-season strengths/weaknesses and prepare to make their appropriate selections for the draft. Given their draft choices and positional needs, every single one of the NFL’s 32 teams is going to have to be smart about whom they select in order not only to please their fans, but also to make the most of their opportunities going into next season.

    At #5 the Raiders are going to have to be ok with taking OL -G Robinson or Matthews, or trade out of the pick. As much as I would love for Clowney, Mack or Watkins to be available I don’t think they will.
    Anyone outside of the top 2 OL at that point would be a stretch. We don’t need another reach pick like Hayden, DHB etc. We need a proven player who we can depend on for years.
    I would probably prefer Mathews with his lineage and the fact that Sparano is probably the best coach we have and he can develop him into a great lineman.
    All you have to do is review our draft history to see how poor we are at drafting including Mckenzie, bottom line don’t screw this up. We will know after the first pick if Mckenzie is going to get fired with Dennis Allen at some point during or after the season. Don’t trade out of the pick and pull another “boner” like last year.
    We need real players who can contribute NOW! not projects, reaches & fantasies.
