What do the Oakland Raiders do with their 2nd round pick after making the trade to the Dolphins that landed the newest Oakland Raider CB D.J. Hayden out of Houston, a shocker in my opinion but quote on quote Tough SoB that Reggie MacKenzie has called him.
Now back to topic, what do the raiders do with the 42nd pick: Here are my options
Jessie Williams, DT Alabama (Previously Kyle Long but taken by Chicago with the 20th pick)
Williams is the 5th ranked DT in the national football post, since we passed up on floyd and lotulelei a DT is still what we need, Williams was part of the championship team this year but wasnt very lights out from what ive seen, but i think good things can come our way if we take him
Manti Te'o, LB Notre Dame
Sure his downfall came in the BCS title game, and showed flaws in his game, his 40 time was a big problem to some, but his leadership was never in doubt. People say he will go in the late 1st round however, if he drops to the 2nd round, i think he is a steal and can be used as our defensive anchor if one of our FA LB's dont work out.
Tyrann Mathieu, CB LSU
One piece of our DB puzzle is there with Hayden, now Hayden and the Honey Badger together, we could be looking at a deadly combination if it works out. Sure the honey badger does have attitude and some legal problems, but i see the fire and passion in his eyes to be one of the best, and we could always use a player that brings the drive and energy we need.
Gavin Escobar, TE San Diego State (Previously Tyler Eifert, but was taken by the 21st Pick to Cincinnati)
With Eifert gone i had to look up who else would be good, i took a look at Escobar, the number 2 ranked TE in the National Football Post, took a look at his stats and he is a decent TE, not a Eifert but i still feel he is better than our two TE's we have right now.
Josh Evans, FS Florida
I think Evans is a diamond in the rough player from Florida. He is the 4th ranked FS on yahoo and the 1st and 3rd bests were taken, theres Johnathan Crypien still available but i think Evans can bring something to the table that we need out of florida.
Well these are my 5 options available as of now, we will see how the draft plays out, leave a comment on what you'd like to see happen C-Ram Out
