Raiders get compensatory pick at No. 240

The 240th pick in the this year’s NFL draft is unlikely to change the fortunes of the Raiders, but it adds a seventh pick to their stash this year for a fringe player or something to add in a trade if they want to move up.

Oakland was one of three teams awarded a sole compensatory pick because, in the words of an NFL release, “even though they did not suffer a net loss of compensatory free agents last year. Under the formula, the compensatory free agents lost by these clubs was ranked higher than the ones they signed (by a specified point differential based upon salary and performance).

And if you’ve figured that out, leave a comment and explain it to us.

The Raiders are scheduled to have picks in the second (No. 48 overall), third (No. 81), fourth (No. 113), fifth (No. 148), sixth (No. 181), and seventh (No. 218) in addition to No. 240.

(Clarification: The Raiders cannot trade the compensatory pick, but having it makes it easier to deal No. 218)

So what are we talking about at No. 240 or below overall?

Some recent and distant history of Raiders you may have heard of (Drafts were shortened to seven rounds in 1992):

2010_S Stevie Brown (seventh round, No. 251 overall)
2007_WR Jonathan Holland (seventh round, No. 254 overall)
2004_TE Courtney Anderson (seventh round, No. 245 overall)
1991_TE Andrew Glover (10th round, No. 274 overall)
1982_WR Mervyn Fernandez (10th round, No. 277 overall)
1981_FB Frank Hawkins (10th round, No. 276 overall)
1979_OT Bruce Davis (11th round, No. 294 overall)
1979_NT Reggie Kinlaw (12th round, No. 320 overall)
1977_LB Rod Martin (12th round, No. 317 overall)
1971_DE Horace Jones (12th round, No. 305 overall)
1968_FB Marv Hubbard (11th round, No. 277 overall)

    Not interested in ANOTHER old arsse DT.

    Being realistic, Kelly-Seymour-Henderson will be 1, 2, 3 in the DT rotation. Might as well draft a rookie for the 4th spot and get him ready to take over later in the year when an injury happens or next year when Henderson is off the roster.

    With the departure of Rich Gannon the Raider offense went into a steady decline. The passing game became virtually non-existent. The ‘bed and breakfast’ offense was abysmal and the Raids became incapable of scoring points. It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that the Raider passing game, and ability to score points during the JaMoron years was the worst in the NFL.

    Suddenly in 2010, the Oakland Raiders became one of the higher scoring teams in the NFL.

    How does one account for this and are the 2011 Raids likely to be as productive ?

    Here are my offensive grades by position for 2010:

    QB: C-
    Although JaJason sucks, he did just enough to earn a passing (no pun intended) grade. Didn’t make many big plays, had 5 absolute stinker games, but managed some games well and avoided making alot of JaMoronesque turnovers.

    RB: A+

    DMAC was fantastic. Bush shows flashes of greatness. Reese is explosive. Unit lacks a great blocking FB, but this is a stellar unit and the definite strength of the team on offense.

    OL: C

    Inconsistent. Pass protection issues. Not a dominant power rushing group. Overwhelmed vs. Tenn, Pitt, and Miami. Lots of room for improvement here, but this unit did show some improvement with the addition of V, and wasn’t as horrific as years past.

    WR: C-

    With the exception of Jacoby Ford, this unit did virtually nothing. DHB more of a threat on reverses than anything else. Has yet to show he can make an over the shoulder catch. Murphy missed time with injuries, shows big play capability, fine blocker but inconsistent hands. Chaz, another missed year due to injury, doubtful he will ever be able to stretch field but still could be a good posession rcvr. JLH, non productive. NMiller, non factor. Thank the Lord for Jacoby Ford.

    TE: C

    Yeah, I know Zach made the pro bowl, but he also had some drops and his blocking was substandard. Played through injury, not a great year. Meyers was decent in limited time and contributed on special teams.

    So overall, we can see with the exception of DMAC, the offensive components just get a marginal grade.

    How then, do we account for the fact that this was one of the higher scoring teams in the NFL ?

    Easy schedule ? Abysmal play by opposing defenses ? Great scheming and play calling by Hue Jax ?

    What are the chances for continued point production in 2011 ?

    Losing BOTH Nnamdi and Huff and not getting anything in return would be a freakin DISASTER for the secondary and will stunt the defenses development from last year IMO.

    Especially with Chuck B as the DC!

    ***

    @DKnight #231,

    You wont know the difference between CJ37-Mitchell-Branch-Routt and Asomugha-Huff-Branch-Routt if the Run Defense finally gets fixed for the first time since Chuck B was Defensive Coordinator (previous stint) and the pass rush looks anything like last year

    Dumps all of your eggs in 1 basket if you’re Hue Jackson. How can you “build a bully” when you’re giving up 130-150 rushing yards per game?

    Asomugha & Huff will cost a fortune to keep and wont help the Run Defense one bit. I want to see the Raiders become a physical football team. Paying a combined $25 million per season for these 2 players and ignoring more pressing needs doesn’t prove to Raider fans that we’re serious about winning. Business as usual doesn’t go anywhere when the business has been bankrupt for the better part of a decade!

    ^^^^^^^
    Nah. You act like CJ and Routt can handle their own full time and I am VERY skeptical about that and VERY skeptical about Branch or Mitchell or Eugene being able to play the high FS spot? Branch for sure can’t, Eugene can’t and hoping Mitchell is prayer. S Brown might be able to…..in maybe 2 or 3 years, but not next year.

    You aslo fail to address about losing one or both those players and getting ZERO in return?

    Exactly! Drafting a powerful and explosive DT that is 310 and over is a need.

    Big John might not even make it through camp this upcoming year, whenever the hell that starts. Need to draft a young stud to learn from Seymour, Big John and Kelly and eventually replace one of them.

    Hiram Eugene & Stevie Brown are not quality NFL starters. Not starting material anyways. If one of these guys end up starting over Missile Mike & Ty Branch we’ll have a safety that can’t tackle OR cover

    Stuart Schweigert, anyone?

    CJ37 & Routt are solid starting CB’s in the Raiders man2man system. That’s proven. They aren’t Nnamdi, but nobody else is either and #21 wasn’t being used to the best of his ability in Oakland. He’s gone. Move on bro

    throw that $25 million at a proven WR that isn’t injury prone. That’ll make a bigger impact in the W/L column!

    ‘Sup fellas.

    Regarding the secondary, I would like to see Huff re-signed. I think he is playing at or near probowl level right now. I’d hate to see him go to Dallas and become a star.

    With that being said, since the Raiders didn’t bother to tender him, it may mean that AD is ready to move on. It seems most assume it will be between Stevie Brown and Hiram Eugene to replace him at FS. I’m not so sure that’s the case.

    If rumors were true that AD overruled the coaching staff about cutting Mike Mitchell, then Davis may think he has the next Jack Tatum ready to patrol the deep secondary. And I think he might be right.

    The general concensus around here seems to be that MM34 is strictly an in-the-box SS type. That he is too stiff or has tight hips and can’t play FS. I don’t nescesarily buy that.

    It was rumored right before the draft that Mitchell opened the eyes of scouts …Bears, Browns and obviously Raiders by running a 4.43 40 at 220 lbs. That not Taylor Mays 4.2, but it’s moving for a safety.

    I think the guy has the speed, the instincts and anticipation to play FS. If you don’t believe me, go back and watch his now infamous Youtube highlights (just turn down the cheesy music). The guy is impressive. He has range, ball skills and seems to time his big hits perfectly.

    You can say yeah, but that was college and the MAC at that. Look at MM34′s body of work in the pros. He didn’t have as many of the highlight big hits (slobberknockers, Madden calls em), as I’d like. Although he did tag the kid from Seattle pretty good in the preseason.. I thought he held up pretty well in coverage, especially against some of the better TE’s in the game including Gates.

    Like I said, hopefully the keep Huff, and MM34 pushes Branch for playing time. It’s time to get this kid on the field as a starter. If Huff leaves via FA, I wouldn’t discount MM34 moving to deep safety. He might be the most intimidating presence the Raiders have had back there in awhile.

    I don’t see DT as a need this year, unless you feel Seymour and Kelly are on their last legs. They already have a nice rotation there with quality backups. And, Lamar Houston may wind up there.

    Get O-line players in the Draft, sign a Big FA WR, and get busy.

    ^^^^^^^
    Getting a BEAST OLB type who is around 260, whis athletic, can fly to the football and can rush the passer and tackle is a need also. It’s a tough find though.

    Clay Matthews is a mini version of his brother and would be a good pick in Round 4 IMO.

    The Raiders do need another LEGIT TE to pair with Miller.

    Having two TE who are legit weapons would make the offense more deadly and unpredictable.

    Look what the Pats did by utilizing Hernandez and Gronkowski properly last year.

    So tell me Mr. GM. How would reports that Cam has a “fake smile” impact your decision to draft/not draft him? Or that “he knows where all the cameras are”? Those things matter more to you than game tape and mesurables, right?

    ****************************************

    Those things matter more to me as far as QB’s, yes.

    DE’s and RB’s, don’t matter, they can be as hood or as rednecked as they want.

    Hue Jackson feels the same way, he wants his QB’s #1 attribute to be his “Ability to lead men”.

    That’s just the phase of the league right now. Great heady QB’s, with supreme egg-head coaching staffs, mixed with a great pass rush on defense.

    That’s what’s winning right now in the league. Mike Vick hasn’t won a playoff game in 7 years, and the league didn’t wait for Jamarcus Russell and Ryan Leaf to figure it out.

    Meanwhile unathletic stiffs like Kurt Warner take teams to the playoffs and Super Bowls.
    =========================================================

    This is absolute crap.

    1.) most division one football stars have huge ego, its part of what makes them great on the field. The nfl is full of promotion Hungry ego maniacs, brett favre & payton manning both come to mind.

    2. the article names “an un named source”. meaning it could be someone with an agenda, or may not exist at all. journalism isnt exactly chok full of integrity first guys is it?

    3. The guys that played with him at auburn loved him followed him as the leader of the team, anything outside of that is speculative at best.

    4. The nfl is still dominated by “nonathletic qbs” mainly because of sheer numbers. in other words there are less vick, mcnabb, young types in the league so by percentage they dont have the same opportunities as their counter parts.

    5. why does athleticism negate intelligence? Steve young was as smart as anyone and he was very athletic.

    These double standards are weak and obsolete.

    310. Newton is OVER RATED.

    Athletic? Yes. Very much so but he’s a theif who was kicked out of Florida for stealing lap tops. He ran an exrtemely pared down offense at Auburn. Mostly one read and throw.

    There are serious and legit questions about this guy being able to become an NFL caliber QB.

    Theres copious tape of him not only making bad reads but worse, no reads at all.

    Aside from the legitimate concerns over his attitude and off field flags he’s not an NFL caliber QB.

    Most people know he’ll need tons of work to become one. Thats why its a huge deal to find out if he has the attitude and fortitude to study lead and become one.

    I’m betting no but stranger things have happened.

    If he slides out of the 1st round, he can partially thank Jamarcass

    Jim Mora Jr. just said on NFLN that he expects the Raiders to take a big step back this year. They fired Tom Cable who was doing an excellent job, and hired Hue Jackson who’s “mostly smoke and Mirrors”.

    To hell with him. Didn’t AD call him a chickensh*t lil biotch a couple of years ago?

    He predicts San Diego to reclaim the division. WRONG. Their window is now CLOSED.

  • RAIDERMAN99

    Kim Newton was a terrifying force when he broke containment and scrambled through collegiate secondaries. Looked like a man amongst boys.

    Will he be able to dominate like that in the NFL ?

    No.

    But he will still remain a terrific threat to scramble and break long runs at any time. Additionally, he should be able to convert 3rd downs with his running ability alone, and extend drives.

    Will he put in the time and effort to master all the intricacies of being a top notch NFL QB ?

    He has excellent arm strength. Whether he’s going to be very accurate or develop ‘touch’ at the next level is debatable.

    Only time will tell.

    If I’m an NFL GM the only way I pass on Kim is if I’m certain he’s not going to be dedicated and I’m convinced he can’t develop into an accurate thrower.

    There’s no way in hell I miss the opportunity to draft a potentially dominating franchise QB.

    You bet there’s a huge risk of Kim being a bust, but also remember there’s no sure thing in this or any other draft.

    After the JaMoron debacle it’s understandable why Raider fans would be especially dubious about Kim and lean towards not drafting him, but I don’t share that mindset.

    If the Raids had a premium pick and Kim was available, I think they’d be foolish not to take him.
