Impossible Trade

I've seen many mock drafts recently that show the Raiders trading back. However, Ive ran into a few problems while debating if this is possible.

First, I've seen many fans say that the Dolphins are willing to trade up. However, the one reason they would trade up is to draft a LT, in whom they just lost in Long's departure. So, Fisher may very well be there at 3, but, from what I've heard, the Dolphins have been trying to trade there 2nd rounder for Chiefs LT Brandon Albert. If this trade happens, in which most Chief fans believe it will, then the Dolphins are off the market.

The second team I've heard about when discussing trading at 3 is the Chargers. First off, they despirately need an O-Lineman. However, I've been on many SD sites and they are all talking about opportunities to trade out. They are also expecting either Warmack or Cooper to be around at 11, and they would take one in a heart beat. I also proposed the idea of trading up to 3 to some of the fans on their site, and they all got upset and said how much they hate it and that it won't happen.

The third team that I've seen is the Cardinals. The Cardinals despirately need a LT, and while they are hoping Lane Johnson falls to them at 7, I doubt he will, and I'm sure they'll get pretty nervous on draft day. However, I've heard lots of talk from Cardinal fans about their desire to trade back. They also might be content with Geno Smith at 7.

After all my research, I really can't figure out who would be willing to trade up with the Raiders. Please give me your opinion below.
