Reader’s Mock NFL Draft – Oakland Raiders Are On the Clock


The Oakland Raiders are up next in our Reader’s Mock Draft after finishing 4-12 last season, and are facing a complete roster overhaul after many of their best free agents departed, and they’re on the verge of sending Carson Palmer out of town.


Team Needs

Defensive Tackle


Offensive Tackle




Top-5 Prospects Available

Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida

Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma

Ziggy Ansah, DE/OLB, BYU

Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama

Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah


It doesn’t appear as though DL Richard Seymour will be back next year, and DL Desmond Bryant signed with the Cleveland Browns, leaving a void as big as the black hole in the interior of the Raiders’ defense. The draft’s 2-best DT prospects will likely be on the board here, as well as the top-2 DE prospects, so they could go with a variety of players in order to address the defensive line.

After the Jacksonville Jaguars took Geno Smith at #2, it’s unlikely they’ll draft the next-best QB in Matt Barkley here, but the Raiders are notorious in reaching for players, so it wouldn’t come as a complete shock.


Who should the Browns select with the #6 pick in the 2013 draft?
