The 2015 NFL Draft is finally here — a day teams at the bottom of the standings rejoice in every spring.

With just one pick in the first round, the Oakland Raiders sit at No. 4 behind the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars (for now). According to most experts, the Raiders decision will come down to the availability of Amari Cooper and Leonard Williams. If both are available, pundits seem split on who the selection might be.
