Oakland Raider Draft Needs

1. A new owner.

2. A new coach.

3. Well, the good news is the Raiders don’t have a pick until the 2nd round, thus avoiding another JaMarcuss Russell debacle.

Who will the Raiders pick? It’s anyone’s guess. They need help everywhere. And I’m not sure how any fan can get really excited about the draft as the odds are pretty good that the Raiders will have a whole new system next year.

With that said, I’d go with a big offensive lineman with my first pick. You need those cats no matter who the coach is or what system he’s using. After that, best player on the board.
