Following the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft, what are the ten best available players to fit the Raiders' needs?

The 2013 NFL draft moves into the second round and as expected, there are still some good players on the board for the Raiders. They didn't originally have a second round pick but through a trade with the Miami Dolphins, were able to pick up the 42 overall pick in the second round.

With the Raiders pick coming exactly 10 spots into the second round, it makes for a nice round number to put together the top ten best players still on the board for the Raiders' needs as we head into the second round.

1. Menelik Watson, OT, Florida State
2. Jonathan Cyprien, FS, Florida International
3. Margus Hunt, DE, SMU
4. Kawann Short, DT, Purdue
5. Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford
6. Tank Carradine, DE, Florida State
7. DJ Swearinger, S, South Carolina
8. Jonathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State
9. Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee
10. Alex Okafor, DE, Texas

Keep an eye out to see if these players come off the board. There are other high ranked players that are not on here because they're not players the Raiders would be expected to choose. There should be a few names left on this list once the Raiders are set to make their selection at 42.
