Cam Johnson is probably best hybrid DE/OLB prospect that figures to be on the board when the Oakland Raiders pick in between the 3rd and 4th rounds today.

Johnson moved to Defensive End this year after playing at OLB for his first three seasons at Virginia. This move produced good results as he tallied 6 sacks and 14.5 tackles for loss.

This is the type of player that i envision the raiders selecting. Johnson is a big body that can contain the edge from the linebacker position or pt a hand on the ground and rush the passer.

In most years, he may have been a second round or early third round pick and he represents great value IF he is still there.

Of course, I am hoping that Trumaine Johnson or Ohio State OT, Mike Adams, slip to this pick, but, realistically, I will be content with seeing Cam Johnson in the Silver and Black in 2012 and beyond.

So, who is on your realistic list and who is on your wish list?
