What We Should Do With The 5th Pick.

As all Raider Nation and fellow Raider fans know, the Oakland Raiders have had poor draft history in this recent decade. The only true sparks of life that have come out of these last 5 years have been Jared Veldheer and Lamarr Houston. They are now gone. This next draft class is extremely deep with talent, and we filled up some extremely important holes with free agency. Now, it's time to turn our heads to the draft.

We have the 5th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. This is HUGE. With the immense amount of talent in this years draft, we could fill up a gaping hole with one standout player. Many NFL Analysts believe we will take the likes of Sammy Watkins, Blake Bortles, or Greg Robinson. Personally, I like only one of those players, that being Greg Robinson. This man is as versatile as can be, being able to be put on the opposite side of Donald Penn. This will help our offensive line greatly. But, I'm looking to the other side of the line, the defensive side of the ball. I believe we should take Aaron Donald. This kid out of Pittsburgh will be a Top 3 Defensive Tackle over the next ten years. If you want to know what a motor looks like, look at this man. He goes 110% every single down. He plays rough nosed, no holds barred football that represents the Raiders perfectly. His hands/footwork are so fast, his get-off speed is amazing, and his raw strength is terrifying. If we add this player to our defensive arsenal, imagine how good our linebackers will be. Put him in our 4-3 set and let the old-school raiders go to work. We'll have Justin Tuck at LE, Aaron Donald at DT1, Pat Sims at DT2, Antonio Smith at RE, Lamar Woodley at LOLB, Nick Roach at MLB, Kevin Burnett at ROLB, and our secondary has already improved to Top 5. Charles Woodson and Tyvon Branch holding the back lines down, and the Tarrell Brown/Carlos Rodgers duo coming across the bay will be a PHENOMENAL defense. I believe we take Aaron Donald and round out our scary front lines and jaw dropping secondary.

With a defense like this, it will really help out Matt Schaub on the other side of the football. The likes of MJD being able to complement Schaub's Play Action style passing will be a great asset. We will be a sound and prolific team with the addition of Aaron Donald.
