The football season may be over for the Oakland Raiders players however Silver and Black management alongside owner Al Davis are still working on making the team even better than it was last season. Last season the Oakland Raiders had a bit of controversy at QB, yet the team went 8-8 and defeated the AFC West with determination and power. The Raiders are working to restore greatness and with free agency around the corner and the 2011 NFL draft, the Raiders should become the playoff team they need to be.
Al Davis has thus far released former coach Tom Cable after a four year venture wit the the Silver and Black. Prior to his release Tom Cable brought the Raiders back from a dismal pit. Enter Hue Jackson, Al Saunders and even former Oakland Raider Steve "The Wiz" Wiszniewski ( which makes me wonder if the Raiders are going after his son?) The Oakland Raiders have a new coaching staff and will be looking to fill gaps.
Simply put the Oakland Raiders are removing the weakest links and replacing them with top coaches and elite players.
Although free agency is sure to bring in some big names for the Oakland Raiders ( I am really hopping the Raiders get Logan Mankins for the offensive line) there are some pretty good prospects for the team in the 2011 NFL Draft. The following is a group of six players that help the Oakland Raiders immediately.
Some you may have not heard of, while the others are simply the best in the nation !
