The Raiders weren’t able to trade their third- and fourth-round picks in this year’s NFL draft because they were compensatory. General manager Reggie McKenzie wasted little time pulling the trigger on a trade as soon as he got to one that was movable.
The Raiders traded pick No. 148 to the Detroit Lions for Nos. 158 (fifth round) and 230 (seventh), which gives them six picks overall in this year’s draft.
Coincidentally, the Raiders selected wide receiver Denarius Moore at No. 148 in last year’s draft. The Lions used the pick this year on Albion cornerback Chris Greenwood.
