The Oakland Raiders have had an incredible start to the 2014 NFL Draft. Khalil Mack and David Carr were both steals in the first and second round. But the Raiders did not stop there. They decided to trade the 67th overall pick to the Miami Dolphins for a third and fourth round selection. With that pick, the Dolphins took North Dakota State offensive tackle Billy Turner.

It was expected that Reggie McKenzie was going to want his fifth and sixth round picks back. In swapping third round picks with the Dolphins (81 overall) the Raiders picked up another fourth round selection (116 overall).

This way, the Raiders can fill more holes with their extra pick. There are still some top talents that could slip to the Raiders.

Wide receiver, offensive guard, defensive tackle and cornerback are potential target areas. A couple of names that could potentially fill those holes are David Yankey (OG, Stanford), Bashaud Breeland (CB, Clemson), Louis Nix III (DT, Notre Dame) and Martavis Bryant (WR, Clemson).
