Well, if the Las Vegas Raiders keep winning, I might have to shift our Monday morning column back to a playoff outlook. But, the Raiders are still three games below .500 and have some work to do to get back in the postseason picture even after their Week 12 win, so we'll keep taking a look at the NFL Draft order until further notice.

The Raiders currently hold the 10th overall pick according to, which would put them in a good spot to draft a defensive tackle like Clemson’s Bryan Bresee or an offensive tackle like Northwestern’s Peter Skoronski or Ohio State’s Paris Johnson Jr. Below is a look at how the rest of the Top 10 breaks down.
