Ok…it is Monday April 28th, and May will surely bring flowers - and I don’t mean Richmond Flowers, either.

For this Mock #4, I have THREE options per round after all the information collected from various websites, interviews, pro-days, combines, collegiate reports and analysis, not to mention dozens of on-air media reporters, scouts and pundits.

Picking three players in each round will take advantage of any spur-of-the-moment draft-day player trades and/or trading picks up or down.Why? Because I need a little bit of guesswork flexibility. I don’t know who is going to be there when the Raiders pick and neither do any of you.

Included are short and to the point, equally researched blah-blah-blah for my treasured selections.

BOLD = my personally analyzed and unbiased, inconsequential and preferred selection.

So, for what it is worth (not so much in this economy), I offer my FORTH DRAFT to be reviewed, ripped , sliced and diced, celebrated or anointed across the Raider Nation.

My OFFICIAL DRAFT #5 will appear on Tuesday May 5th before we start stocking up on all of the necessary provisions like BBQ wings, salsa, chips and a variety of tailgate foodstuffs and finally turn our attention towards the training camps and the pre-season opener on August 8th, then onward to bust-up the Jetzoids on September 7th.
