Raiders 2011 Draft Wish List

So, with the majority of the media and some fans denouncing the Oakland Raiders decision to let Tom Cable go,  I've been spending sometime looking at Hue Jackson and reflecting on the explosive offense he's brought back to Oakland. Granted, Cable did bring the team together in a way we haven't seen in sometime but I see Jackson as being the most capable person of leading the Raiders to potential playoff contention in 2011, and the beginning of a new era for the Raiders. From what I've gathered, Jackson and Davis share the same ideology regarding the Raiders past 8-8 season and while the change at HC has upset some veteran players in the locker room, I think it's important to realize that without Jackson we wouldn't have seen the boost in offense and overall camaraderie that comes with winning games as a team. With Lechler being one of the big names vocally distraught about Cable, losing him would definitely alter our team but it wouldn't by any means render us helpless. Come next season we'll be facing an onslaught of teams that are currently in the 2010 playoffs, they include the Patriots, Bears, Jets, Chiefs and Packers. It's no shock to us die hards' that our seasons aren't getting any easier and I believe there's no better time for the Raiders then right now to start making changes and that begins with having another successful draft. So while it's fresh in my mind, who do you think the Raiders will bring to Oakland in 2011? These following players are my "current" Silver & Black Draft Wish-list; in no particular order, and completely going off the hunch that Davis trades up for additional picks in the earlier rounds.
