There are a million ways that the Raiders could have their draft impacted from now until the draft, but none of them can effect their choice at four more than trades. In this article I will cover five potential trade ideas that can drastically alter the approach that Reggie and company will take.

1. Mariota Falls, Browns Trade Up

Mariota is the first pressure point for any trade in this draft, but the primary question is who trades for him and when? The Browns are perpetually looking for a quarerback and especially after Manziel belly flopped his way into rehab this offseason, the Browns making a big move for a quarterback makes perfect sense. In this case I would expect the Browns to give up both of their first round picks and a pair of mid round picks to make this move happen.

Although the Raiders would be passing on the top tier talents, they would be in a nice spot to grab Davante Parker and a solid 4-3 left defensive end, or even trading back again with their second first round pick. The sheer amount of picks the Raiders could reap in this situation makes it an interesting move and there is a decent possibility this could happen.
