The weekly FanSided NFL Mock Draft continues to roll along. This week the only difference for the Raiders is that they’ve slid one spot back to 4th overall. But I’ll take that in a draft with no clear cut #1 talent. I’ll also take more wins no matter how they come or at what expense it means to Oakland’s draft status.
While they are one spot down from the previous week the FS mockers still have Oakland locked in on Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei.
Given all the holes on the Raiders roster it would not be shocking to see them go in any direction on draft day including trading their top pick to gain more later. In fact that seems to be the popular opinion around Raider Nation these days.
But we’re still months away from any real draft talk. In fact, if Lotulelei’s (wait for it) ‘Star’ keeps rising the way many predict then he could be the first to come off the board in April. With the Chiefs slated to pick first that’s not too far of a reach considering all the D-lineman they’ve drafted in recent years.
