The Raiders have been mocked and ridiculed by many over their first round selections over the past couple of years.
Jamarcus Russell and Darius Heyward-Bey appear to be bad selections over the past three years.
It is early to call Heyward-Bey a bust, but he was selected way to high to ever have a real chance of proving his skills based on draft positioning.
Still, this year's pick, former Alabama middle linebacker Rolando McClain, is a solid pick for the Raiders.
He was projected as a mid-round pick in the first round. He went a little earlier then that, but he is better than another throw away pick by Davis and Co.
He will be around an average defensive unit and can help them immediately in his rookie season.
