Raiders get picks in 3rd, 4th, 5th rounds

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Monday, March 26th, 2012 at 1:25 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders significantly added to their draft Monday with the announcement at the NFL owner’s meetings they would receiver compensatory selections in the third, fourth and fifth rounds.

Oakland’s picks, as announced on its Twitter account, are No. 95, No 129 and No. 168 overall.

The Raiders had picks in only the fifth and sixth rounds before compensatory picks were announced.

Compensatory picks come at the end of the round around and cannot be traded, not that general manager Reggie McKenzie is going to be doing much dealing with such a limited draft.

    Burfict’s career will be shorter and more useless than Jamarcus Russell’s.

    He wasn’t even that good in the first place. 3rd best LB on his own team according to most reports. Was picked on and gameplanned to be isolated.

    Than he flopped at the combine with the interviews.

    He will be lucky to be drafted.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Burfict is similar to Kimbo Slice.

    All youtube clips, but in reality, he is not anywhere close to ready to compete with the pro’s.

    on 3rd downs…the smaller the better…

    Look at the success of all the tiny RB’s in the NFL:

    Jones Drew
    Ray Rice
    Darren Sproles

    Does this kid have the skills?
    $$$$$$$$$$$$

    He has skills, but we need a bigger back IMO. We have T Jones.
    Go Aztecs!!

  • Ghost to the Post

    This is great news. I was hoping we would get three picks. Nice..

  • JLofty

    Can’t trade next year’s No.1 pick. It is in limbo as a condition of the Palmer trade. Can’t trade conditinal picks. Reggie’s going to just have to make do…

    =====================================

    Speaking of Kimbo Slice, anyone see that dive Brian Green took against him Friday night?

  • The Oracle

    I would guess a CB at pick 95…it is etched in stone…almost.

    Look at Flemming from OU. Big frame with speed to match top round picks, comparable vertical, good reach plus some huge 9 1/2 inch hands…

  • RaiderRockstar

    was Reggie showing his inexperience as GM by stating we need a STARTING olb in his last interview, on the record?

    and saying we have no money …

    if there are many good LB’s left in picks 84-94, expect teams to trade up to grab one because they know Reggie wants one at #95 and he ain’t gonna let a good one slip by him

  • DKnight007

    Another player:

    Nick Provo, TE, Syracuse
    Height: 6-3 Weight: 245

  • Just Fire Baby

    I like Casey Hayward from Vandy.

    Super smart, great ball skills, played against elite talent in the SEC, and competes. Did well at the Senior Bowl.

  • DKnight007

    Rhett Ellison, TE/FB, USC
    Height: 6-5 Weight: 251

    ^^^^
    This guy would be a good late round pick. Play some blocking fullback and can block as a TE and can catch the football.

    I don’t think Reggis will take a CB with that 3rd round pick and I hope he doesn’t. We have enough corners on the roster already.

    They can get a corner in the later rounds if need be.

    This team needs some OLB’s/DE’s and a NT ahead of another CB….again! Ugh

  • Just Fire Baby

    Went against Alshon Jeffery, potential 1st rounder, and bagged two INT’s.

    Also two picks in his bowl game.

    Great instincts and smarts, not elite speed.

    Perfect player for the new era.

  • Just Fire Baby

    How do we not need a young DB?

    We got two cheap, vet FA’s, and two incredibly green youngsters.

    Can’t imagine that we are set there with that, after the misery that was our pass defense last year.

  • RaiderRetribution

    Raiders recieved the only 3rd round compensatory pick;

    the 2nd of the 4th round compensatory pick;

    and the first of the fifth round compensatory draft pick,

    excellent!

  • RaiderRetribution

    SMU OL Beachum would be great selection with our 3rd or 4th round, but I do not think he will last that long.

  • DKnight007

    Of course I think they will be looking at Ganaway also in Round 5 or 6 possibly.

    Terrance Ganaway, RB/FB Baylor
    Height: 6-1 Weight: 238

  • DMAC

    I think we are set at the CB position. What good are CB’s and secondary, if you don’t have a pass rush?

    Let’s draft a LB or DE w/ our 3rd rounder.

  • DMAC

    I’m sure Reggie will find an udrafted RB in this years draft.

    If Ta’amu is available, we should take him. What good is a pass rush if the other team can just run up the middle all day?

    Here we go again. We drafted two DB’s last year in Rounds 3 and 4 and have signed 3 CB’s/DB’s so far.

    Why do the Raiders need to draft another CB in Round 3 again?

    Lets get some OLB’s/DE’s and some NT/DT’s on this team!

  • Just Fire Baby

    Spencer, Bartell, DVD and Chekwa are EASILY one of the worst set of DB’s in the NFL, at least for 2012, unless Bartell and Spencer waaaaay exceed their career’s so far, and DVD and Chekwa take massive leaps in year 2.

    We will draft a DB, hell maybe 2.

    Just don’t want a CB or RB taken w/ our 1st pick.

    Gonna have to put a lot of Faith in Reggie and Allen ….we’ll findout what kinds of Wheeler Dealers They are….

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

    Because you need at least 2 if not 3 good corner in today’s NFL. I am not sure we even have one good corner right now.

    You don’t think ALL AFC West teams are going to load up on DB’s now that Peyton is in the division?

    Yeah, hope we don’t draft those two CB’s until Rounds 5 and 6! haha

    DVD and Chekwa are still young and to early to give up on already. Jesus, they were 3rd and 4th round picks and still need time.

    Why draft and 3rd Round CB and to just add him to the rotation and hope he stands out among the rest?

    We need some beast football player LB’s/DE’s and a solid NT/DT to evantually replace Kelly and or Seymour to to help stuff the run.

    The draft is deep at OLB/DE and DLine this year. There will still be good football players at those positions when the Raiders draft in Rounds 3 and 4.

  • Just Fire Baby

    I don’t think The Reggie will factor in what has happened here in the past, as far as previous drafts and what not.

    You saw it with some of the waives and roster moves already. He is starting over.

    He will draft whatever player he wants, and not worry about whether we drafted DVD or Pryor or McClain or whoever previously.

  • aig-raiders

    I love our comps. Now we will give RM something to do his magic.

    Money has been spent in FA adding players to the CB/DB position. They may not be high end superstars, but it still has been money spent on that position, whether you like those players Reggie signed or not.

    Reggie won’t throw away a draft pick on another CB at the end of Round 3.

    Count on it!

  • DKnight007

    There will be much better football players available at a number of different positions, than at freakin CB with that end of Round 3 pick!

  • Just Fire Baby

    DVD and Chekwa are still young and to early to give up on already. Jesus, they were 3rd and 4th round picks and still need time.

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

    Not giving up on them.

    I do think Chekwa will be a starter.

    I am OK if the DB’s are later, I just think we need to keep trying to get some quality DB’s, because in reality, we may not have any right now.

    I don’t think we will draft anyone for the D-line, besides a nickle pass rusher like a Brooks Reed or something. A speed-rusher type. We got a lot of moving parts there, and Seymour and Kelly ARE CLEARLY going to be prominently involved again this year, since we did not release either.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Money has been spent in FA adding players to the CB/DB position.

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

    CAn’t really count on Bartell with his injuries, and Spencer is not a great option as a starter at this stage in his career.

  • DKnight007

    That Round 3 pick should be going towards at OLB/DE versatile 4-3, 3-4 player or a beast two gapper NT/DT.

    Maybe even a DT/DE type 5 technique.

    We need a big running back and defense, defense, and defense.

    It’s great that the adults are now in charge.

    Re tight budget, McKenzie said he is “learning on the fly through adverse situations” and he thinks it’s going well
    ————————————

    Well it looks like even Reggie thinks he’s getting some on the job training.

    I don’t think this is a bad thing, I have faith in Reggie, but sombody called me out when I said Reggie was going to have some on job training

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

    we already have a lot of players who can do that. Lamarr Houston, Desmond Bryant, plus Seymour and Kelly in a 3-4

  • RaiderReggie

    We need to go out and try to aquire QB Drew Stanton from the NY Jets as Palmer back-up. Stanton wants out since the Jets got Tebow.
