The 2014 NFL Draft will be a big weekend in Reggie McKenzie and Dennis Allen’s rebuilding process for the Oakland Raiders franchise.
With so many needs throughout the roster, they will look to add as much instant-impact talent as possible, establishing a solid foundation to build around moving forward.
The biggest debate will surround which direction the Raiders should lean with their first-round selection at fifth overall, be it a potential franchise quarterback or a dominant pass-rusher.
With far more options in free agency for pass-rushers than for quarterbacks, targeting a signal-caller in the first round could make much more sense value-wise.
Either way, a lot can change before draft day, but the Raiders will have a number of different directions they can go with the selections at their disposal.
Complete with pro-player comparison profiles, here is the most recent 2014 Oakland Raiders’ NFL mock draft.
