The Raiders were the only team in the 2012 NFL draft to receive a third-round compensatory selection, as a result of the loss of star cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha to free agency. They were lucky that the NFL granted them this selection, or they would have had no selections on either of the first two days of the draft.

The Raiders actually received compensatory selections in each of the third, fourth and fifth rounds, but came into the draft without five of their seven original draft picks, including their picks from each of the first four rounds.
