Raiders made their first round 7 in the 2013 draft. They used that pick on little known wide receiver, Brice Butler out of San Diego State.

Butler earned ESPN Pac-10 All Freshman first team after pulling down 20 catches for 292 yards as a freshman at USC. His numbers tailed off the following two season before transferring to SDSU before last season after totaling 41 catches for 541 yards over three seasons with the Trojans.

He totaled 24 receptions for 347 yards and 4 TDs in his one season with the Aztecs good for second on the team. Yes, he wasn't even the best receiver on his own team.

At 6-2.5, 199 pounds, he has average to good size. He is listed as having a 4.5 40-yard dash although San Diego State has him listed as having run a 4.36 40-yard dash at his Pro Day last month.

"I feel like I had a really good day and I wowed some scouts today," Butler said after this Pro Day. "Before I came here, they were saying (I'd go in) the sixth or seventh round or not get drafted. But hopefully with my 40 and the way I weighed in, and my measurables and how I can run routes and get in and out of cuts, it'll get me up to get drafted period, or a mid-round guy."

He has flashed good hands, route running, and leaping ability which he also displayed at his Pro Day and earned him a look from the Raiders.
