Reggie McKenzie Pulls Shrewd Move; Trades Down In First Round

All along it was looking like the best move Reggie McKenzie could make on draft day was to trade down from 3rd overall to acquire more picks. After keeps his cards close to the chest McKenzie finally showed his hand by making a move while the Raiders were on the clock.

McKenzie swapped first round picks with the Miami Dolphins as the Silver and Black fell back to the 12th spot in round one. In addition the trade netted Oakland a second round pick lost in the Carson Palmer trade. It’s almost as CP3 never happened. Almost…

Now all that remains is to see what McKenzie does with those picks acquired from Miami. No matter what though it was the best move he could have made.
