Analysis of the top prospects being Raiders

Well the raiders have the no. 7 pick in the draft, and we have a stronger team entering the draft than we have had in the last 5 years. Here is what i would think of the top draft prospects(besides matt stafford) if they fell to no. 7 and my opinion one the chance that they will fall to 7 and how well they address our needs-

 

Aaron Curry-OLB-Wake Forest-Perfect fit for the raiders and the safest pick in the draft. Can play any of the linebacker spots and would give the raiders one of the top 5 linebacker cores in the league.

Chance he falls to the raiders at 7-Extremely Low

Addresses our need-Very Good

Jason Smith-OT-Baylor-The most complete tackle in the draft. has shown the ability to be a power run blocker and a great pass blocker. Great feet and long arms and the most athletic tackle, should be a pro bowler within the next 2 seasons.

Chance he falls to the raiders at 7-Extremely Low

Addresses our need-Above Average

Eugene Monroe-OT-Virginia-The best feet and footwork in the draft and has the arm length and the hold off the best pass rushers. Maybe not the most physical run blocker, but can be very god in the run game. Played in an offense that helps lineman translate into the NFL very well(Dbrickishaw ferguson, branden albert, elton brown)

Chance he falls to the raiders at 7-Low

Addresses our need-Above Average

Brian Orakpo-DE-Texas-Long arms, extremely athletic and non stop motor, looks like a more athletic version or Jared Allen. Needs to polish moves more but he is just as good of a prospect coming out of college since Gaines Adams. Has performed against great competition having a excellent game against Phil loadholt of Oklahoma. Played against alot of pass happy teams in the Big 12 and is not the best run stopper in the draft, but is the safest and one of the top athletes in this draft.

Chance he falls to the raiders at 7-Medium/Low

Addresses our need-Good

Michael Crabtree-WR-Texas Tech-Most natural receiver coming out of college since larry fitzgerald. Not as good of an athlete as top pick calvin johnson, but no one is athletic as calvin johnson(except maybe lebron james, but that is another discussion). Best hands in the draft, best at running after the catch, and has shown the ability to use his speed to pull away from defenders routinely. Did not run a full route tree, but has all the tools to be a super star on the outside.

Chance he falls to the raiders at 7-Medium

Addresses our need-Very Good

BJ Raji-DT-Boston College-A bowling ball of a man with excellent quickness, best nose tackle prospect since vince wilfork, practically a mirror image of him. Has a great bull rush and an above average swim move. Benefits from a weak D tackle class, but still a great prospect in his own right.

Chance he falls to the raiders at 7-Medium

Addresses our need-Good

Andre Smith-OT-Alabama-Punishing run blocker with the quickness to pass block, was a top pick before some questionable moves at the combine. Hands down the best run power of an offensive tackle in this draft. Questionable work ethic, but has shown the ability to be an instant pro bowler if he gets his head and motivation right.

Chance he falls to the raiders at 7-High/Medium

Addresses our need- Above Average
