I've made a recent mock draft for the Oakland Raiders where I think the Raiders will draft Trent Williams with the 8th pick, but now all the trade rumors surrounding Jared Gaither makes me think that we don’t need to draft a tackle first.

Recent news shows that the Ravens want to get Eric Berry and are willing to trade up for him. They are looking for a replacement for Ed Reed due to him wanting to retire because of injuries and he probably want be in Baltimore for more than two more years.

I predict that Eric Berry will be on the board at the 8th pick for us. I feel that we can draft Eric Berry and trade him to Baltimore for Gaither and get their first round pick at number 25 and draft the best player available or a player at a position they need.

I feel like the Raiders will draft defensive tackle Lamarr Houston out of Texas in the second round base on his speed and potential. So if the Raiders draft Lamarr Houston in the second round, who will they draft with the 25th pick from Baltimore?

 I think defensive end Carlos Dunlap out of Florida. He has top 10 talent, but his stock has dropped some because of his off field issues. He is the type of player Al Davis likes with his great athleticism and skills.

Raiders have yet to offer Richard Seymour a long term deal which means they may not want to keep him around for another 1 or 2 years. This will drastically change the D-line with Carlos at 25 and Lamarr at the 39 pick.

Tell me what you think about this Raider Nation!
