Scenario One

The Raiders select Michael Crabtree, WR, Texas Tech. The Raiders need receivers.

Russell cannot unleash the rock if he does not have anybody to throw to. Due to recent surgery, Crabtree will now likely fall to the Raiders.

The Raiders also just signed Khalif Barnes, a left tackle from Jacksonville, who is competing for the starting spot.

 

Scenario Two

The Raiders select B.J. Raji, DT, Boston College.

Countless times, I have seen running backs running straight through the middle into the second level. Terdell Sands and Gerard Warren are not worth the money they are given.

We could take some pressure off of Tommy Kelly and Derrick Burgess. We could sign a veteran wide receiver like Torry Holt from the Rams or Amani Toomer from the Giants

They could also get a wide receiver in the second round like Derrius Heyward-Bey from Maryland or Percy Harvin from Florida.

 

Scenario Three

The Raiders trade down for Lions #20 and #33 or Eagles #21 and #28.

If I was Al Davis, I would go for the Eagles. We can get Alex Mack, a center from California, who would be a big boost. Our new offensive line coach is from California, so Mack knows the system and he knows the zone-blocking scheme. With #28, we need to pick a wide reciever or defensive tackle. I think Derrius Heyward-Bey would fit here, and with the 39th pick, we could pick Evander "Ziggy" Hood from Missouri.
