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)

    146. Gotta disagree with you, Frank Hawkins was a little Beast! The dude was as thick as he was tall & was a helluva blocker for Marcus (I’m gonna whine & moan because Bo is better than me, then become an Effing Chief) Allen… Could even catch a swing pass once in a while… Hubbard and Martin were no slouches either…

    haters, honestly ask yourselves, how many games does this team win with out JC? this is speculative, but i would venture to guess we would be around 3 possibly four wins.

    Things were not going well in san diego, or kc & Jc played a major roll leading us to huge wins.

    For the record, i said hu jack, dmac & JC were the biggest reasons for our turn around on offense. i give extra credit to hu jack city & JC because they were not with this team before last season.
    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    JC deserves more credit than he’s gotten. He showed me a hell of a lot in that 1st San Diego game, a game we had no chance of winning if Bruise had stayed in, even being spotted 12 points. Guess I shouldn’t have been surprised after he kicked our ass in Oakland in 2009. But he definitely benefited from several changes on offense, most importantly the addition of Hue. Cable, Tollner and Whackit were clowns who destroyed the offense in 2009 after we let Knapp leave. Plus we had two new starting tackles and the addition of Jacoby Ford, who also made an impact in the return game. The revamped front seven on D didn’t hurt either. JR would have benefited from these changes as well. I would have liked to see him compete with JC for the job.

    I think we’re all gonna see that Al will prove all the speculation as false, I dont see him letting his most prized CB and model citizen get away!! Remember that it was Al who converted Nnamdi to CB to begin with.. I’m sure he is still patting himself on the back for that… That crap statement he made in the Jackson presser about the value of two or three guys for Nnamdi’s salary was smoke and mirrors… Just watch, Coach will prove ‘em all wrong if/when this CBA debacle gets cleared up… Then sit back and laugh…

    Doubt it with the money he gave Routt. We’ll see though. Kind of interested to see our D without him.

    Let’s give it a try.
    2nd – Wiz (trade back a few spots and get another pick)
    3rd – Chekwa
    4th – Matthews
    5th – Moffit (use extra pick from above and this 5th to move up and select Moffit)
    6th – G or T prospect
    7th – Jeff Maehl or Lockette

    ^^^^^^^^
    Rd 2- RT/G Cannon or C/G Wiz or OLB Brooks Reed
    Rd 3- C Kirkpatrick or RT/G Marcus Gilbert
    Rd 4- OLB Casey Matthews
    Rd 5- DT/DE Cedric Thornton or a CB
    Rd 6- WR Lockette or a TE

  • DKnight007

    My main concerns are losing BOTH Nnamdi and Huff.

    I don’t trust Routt and I don’t trust Eugene or S Brown to be able to fill the high safety spot on a full time basis….especially after Huff finally developed and showed he can handle it last year.

    Keeping Nnamdi would be good…because if necessary he may be able to convert to FS when he gets older.

  • CJ Legend 34

    DKnight – I could not agree with you more. Before last year they could have traded Routt and I would not have even thought twice about their move. I think both ROutt and Eugene are decent role type players in the backfield but that is about it. Teams don’t fear those guys ability on the ball. You know?

  • CJ Legend 34

    OK let me say it!!!!

    JC “helped” turn us around. He played the best at QB since Gannon. The defense actually respected his QB play. The #1 way he was able to turn this team around was by getting the ball to the playmakers to make plays. He is a timing QB. Once he is in rythm he is a good QB. When he got demoted he stood up like a real leader and was ready to go when Grads went down. He took the opportunity like he was suppose to do. Sorry he was not like Russel fellas. : )

  • DKnight007

    Another concern is Bruce Campbell. Is he going to be moved to RG or RT and is he ready to step in and contribute?

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    Again JC turned our offense around
    ***********
    JC definitely helped the Raiders improve but to say he was the guy to turn us around is about as reasonable as saying Tom Cable was instrumental in making Nnamdi Asomugha a superstar. Our offense was drastically improved last year on the strength of our running game. Teams did everything possible to stop us, and were largely unsuccessful. Our passing offense was still dismal (except for when our Rbs took 5 yard passes and turned them into 50+ yard gains). I expect Hue to improve on that aspect this year, and with some solid improvement from our WRs I am sure JC can put up some pretty decent numbers. JC is the type of QB that if everything around him is right he will be ok, but he isnt the guy who is going to make a shoddy team better.

  • CJ Legend 34

    You are right Al will sign Nnamdi. You know why? A) Al saw what happened with Woodson, he plays like a Raider in Green and Gold now. B) He likes to keep those possible hall of fame players. Nnamdi has been the closet thing in the last 10 years. C)Your defense runs man to man 99.9% of the time and you trade one of the top 3 best man to man DBs in the game? D) Hall was enough to show you that every DB can’t play man to man. It is not easy to pick up a DB and have him on that island 1 on 1 the whole game. Takes a special DB to be a Raider DB.

    Nnamdi Will BE Back!!!! I said it first!!!!

    Now then, Raiders 2nd rnd DP?

    DT Marvin Austin.

    I know he was suspended (Robert Quinn should’ve been too) and has been called selfish but Austin and Houston would be a nightmare for opposing O’s.

    His Combine work out was impressive and to see a guy 312 lbs gaining speed and high stepping as he crosses the 40 is truly impressive.

  • RaiderRockstar

    JC isn’t even the biggest weakness on this team.

    Its the 28th ranked run defense and a secondary that is actually “excited???” about Stanford Routt, Walter McFadden, Tyvon Branch and Hiram Eugene

    The defense is my big concern. Gotta stop the run and without Nnamdi, I am worried that the pass defense becomes a weakness too.

    ***

    SnB,

    agree with you about JCamp. the Run D is ranked 29th and there will be no new starters on the defensive front seven. So you’re basically hoping that Chuck B from the UFL & Greg Biekert with no experience as a full-on position coach can do a better job teaching these guys about leverage, angles, gap discipline and sure tackling than Marshall & Haluchak

    Also, I think that Mitchell & CJ37 will start in the secondary ahead of Eugene & Walter Mac

    I’m not even worried about the secondary.

    Stuff the run + rush the passer = excellent secondary, regardless who is on the field back there!

  • RaiderRockstar

    Bruce Campbell and another rookie on our O-line may be great in 2013, but it will be an unmitagated disaster next year.

    ***

    Agreed JFB #65.

    Veldheer, Loper, Satele & Campbell are locks to start imo

    I think Walker, Barnes or Henderson will end up with the RT job unless Cooper Carlisle stays (he’s under contract) at RG and they move BCamp out to RT

  • GoodOle00

    169. RR you don’t understand how the Raiders D philosophy works at all

  • RaiderRockstar

    I don’t trust Routt and I don’t trust Eugene or S Brown to be able to fill the high safety spot on a full time basis

    ***

    I don’t understand all the drama regarding the potential loss of 1 or 2 players in the secondary. Nnamdi has been with us since 2003 and Huff has been with us since 2006. We have NEVER had a winning season with either player. Not saying it’s their fault, but I would not be a bit upset to see a little more focus placed on stuffing the run, rather than Al Davis’ back loaded defense full of overpaid trackstars!

    CJ37-Mitchell-Branch-Routt = good enough

    Stop the run & rush the passer. You’ll see!

    Allowing a QB to survey the entire field can also be a bad thing. More options to check. I get tired of seeing Nnamdi locked on 1 side of the field. Then we play KC and Routt is covering Bowe anyways. OC’s move their best WR to the side Nnamdi isn’t on. Who cares if Chambers goes without a catch when Bowe and Moeaki have 6 each? You see what I’m saying? Maybe if we had a decent DC that didn’t have to take orders from Al and Nnamdi could be used properly he would be worth $15 million per season in Oakland. Until then, let the man walk and sign with a team that has a chance to compete for a SB championship. He’s earned it

  • GoodOle00

    170. RR says: “CJ37-Mitchell-Branch-Routt = good enough”

    =======

    What makes you say that? CJ has had 2 major knee surgeries and has been inured most ofd his career (like last year) Mitchells from a smaller college and inexperienced, Branch was f’ing horrible in coverage last year and Routt had his best season because it was a contract year.

    Again you have little concept of how Davis’ Raider D shceme is supposed to work and you have questionable reasoning skills.

    There are 6 people in the entire world who think Jamarcus Russell is anything other than a lazy POS who took advantage of the Raiders and soaked them for every penny he could get without putting any effort into improving the team, and this jabrone (priestj) is one of them. I dont give a crap what the Raiders gave him in a coaching staff. They didnt overfeed his punk a$$, they didnt give him Ambian before meetings to make him sleepy, they didnt give him Codein to make ‘drink’. What they did was hire a guy, pay him the most a player had ever been payed as a rookie (at the time) and told him we expect you to do your best to be instramental in turning this franchise around. Everything that has happened to Jamarcus Russell since that day in April of 2007 is Jamarcus Russells fault.

    —————-

    That is true. But what I don’t get and it still baffles me today is, did not he and his agent know what they were getting into? That by coming to Oakland as a 1st pick should have been a flag unto itself. A franchise looking for a franchise player to turn the team around. And it was not coaching he needed, but a life counselor. He took the money after holding out for more, and thus he became liable for his actions. He defaulted on his contract by not honoring Coach Davis, who paid him in advance to perform. If anyone is blame other than JR it has to be his agent. Yes his agent is closely behind him for the failure. Blame it on immaturity or what ever if you like, but he had the network and resources to get direction but probably chose not to. If he had dedicated himself to his lavishly paid commitment, he might have or perhaps maybe could have, maybe been average to good. But he didn’t.

    Byron Bell has been a chronic underachiever, but he has ideal size and athleticism. The book on him out here as a Lobo is that he struggled academically to get into school and was kind of a screwoff, but he got hurt for a year and it refocused and matured him. Who knows.

    But playing left tackle for a terrible offense like the Lobo’s were,in the Mountain West is no easy task. I think he is a 5th-7th round type of pick, and I wouldn’t be mad at taking him in the 6th round.

  • edward teach

    *************
    Its really no different than any other year. When you draft a player you are claiming their rights. Thats it. You negotiate a contract afterwards, which will not happen until there is a new CBA. The big difference is that you wont see any blockbuster trades this year. Only picks can be traded, no players can be moved.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Interesting story on Cam here, with this writer blasting him. The Sporting News had an article kind of ripping him after the combine as well (in it they cited the old unnamed source who reported that Cam was caught stealing cash from teammates lockers during games at Florida). In the Sporting News they also said that some teams loved him in the interviews, and other teams felt he was very disingenous, but also added that all the teams could have been spinning things to help their draft desires.

    I don’t think he will last past #12 to Minny, and I wouldn’t be suprised if he went #4 to Cincy. Just goes to show how important all the off the field, and rah-rah stuff is FOR A QB. This guy clearly is the most talented and accomplished QB in the draft, with one of the higher ceilings ever for a QB, but is nowhere near regarded the consensus #1 (he still may go #1 but I doubt it) and may not even be the top QB to be drafted.

    As Hue Jackson said last year, his number one characteristic for a QB is the ability to lead men. He isn’t the only one in the league who feels that way.

    Really! The league approves and reviews all contract and trades in the NFL. So you think that the option/bonus year was not a selling point for the Browns when they offered the trade? The Browns wrote the contract, the league approved the contract and the Raiders are left holding the bag and the consequences.

    Good point Dutch. They do review all contracts etc….

  • Just Fire Baby

    I was always of the belief that in the first round, you don’t pigeon-hole yourself into a position, and take the best value in the draft. (unless of course you are holding the elite player at a position, like the Colts aren’t going to take a QB in the first round, the Steelers won’t take a FS, etc)

    I.E. I would take the #2 rated DE prospect over the #4 rated LT prospect, even if LT was more of a need. The Raiders have/had plenty of holes, so just get the best value. I thought they executed this flawlessly by getting RoMac (#1 ILB prospect) instead of taking the #3 or #4 LT prospect (the guy the 49ers got) last year.

    Tougher to do in the second round, as the value is not as skewed as it is in the top half of the first round. Even still, I think you have to consider that approach, and not just grab an interior O-lineman because you need one.

    Wouldn’t be suprised if some players were suprisingly available (Maybe Locker, Leondard Hankerson, Jimmy Smith) that the Raiders might take, even though it is not the biggest position of need.

    Ole,

    CJ37 has missed 9 games in 4 seasons with the Raiders

    Chaz Schilens has missed 19 games in the past 2 seasons and you haven’t said anything about him!

    Mike Mitchell played pretty well last year when given the opportunity and Branch looked good in some games and awful in others. You don’t expect most strong safeties to cover like Troy Polamalu

    Routt had his best season because he finally learned all the little nuances of the game and perfected his craft. He was a friggin track star when Al Davis drafted him out of Houston! He didn’t do that much on the football field to warrant being drafted in RD2, but AD saw something in him – same with Missile Mike

    Get Over It!
