Raiders trade fifth-round pick

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.

    Backstage,

    Burris is 6-2 246lbs, benches 225 31 times and 1rm at 455lbs. He is on the record as saying he uses that strength to shed blockers. How is he undersized?

    3 to go and the 2 best DT’s are still available.

    If McK goes LB again, he can look at high energy, hard working, 4 year starter T Lewis from Oklahoma

    CorkOnTheNFL:
    Reggie McKenzie traded away a draft pick the first time he got the opportunity. #Raiders couldn’t trade 3rd- and 4th-rounders. Wants picks.

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    thinking Reggie’s board doesn’t align with BSPN’s board.

    Reggie saw the player he wanted was safe, thus he traded back.

    Raider_D, I think you will be surprised at the difference in the attitude on defense in 2012. We will soon find out.

    And we have LB’s….but our DB’s aren’t equipped to deal with Peyton Manning and Phillip Rivers for 4 of our division games this season (as it stands) if we have to watch Huff play Nickle one more snap I’m going to puke!

    We needed a DB….a versatile one….and didn’t get one…instead we got an undersized versatile LB…..suitable for a hybrid college 3-3-5 defensive system….

    As I said….not knocking Reggie….but we made a mistake…and Raider Nation should know it!

    ***************************
    Are you serious? DVD or Chimeda can blow out Norman. You have got to be kidding me. You are being sarcastic right??? We picked up 4 FAs to shore that up plus we need to see how DVD and Chi – can’t spell his name work with real def. coordinator then go CB next year as needed.

    Fins got Kaddu.

    You beat Peyton by getting to him, same for Rivers. That’s how NE and SD used to beat Peyton. Who the heck did they have playing db in NE when they owned Peyton?

    Nice….I try and be there on Thursdays for Happy Hour for at night.

  • xraided

    51. yea doesn’t sound undersized to me. shedding blockers and making tackles, something a Raider LB hasn’t been able to do consistently for how long now?

  • backstageatapuppetshow

    AIG-You may be correct.

    Maybe he isn’t too small….for the outside….but that isn’t my point….we likely could have gotten him at 148 and our area of need was a starter in the Nickle not depth at linebacker!

  • DKnight007

    Kaddu gone to Miami.

  • RaiderRockstar

    I think we can get Fangupo or NJB at #168

    I like Winn, Sammy Brown, Cam Johnson or Massaquoi with this pick!!

    Oh I dont disagree at all. I was more agreeing with your point in that you cant judge Reggie off of a couple picks in his first draft given the mess he walked into.

    I hope that the change in defensive mentality with the players we have and the quality character people we’re adding will make a huge difference on the field.

  • lefty12

    our pick is coming up-time for a commercial.

    Who is our Nickle Corner….???? Huff???? LOL…. Norman could have fit that perfectly….

    All I’m saying is we need someone to cover the slot when we play Denver and San Diego….and we don’t have that person!

  • http://ibabuss.com antispy3

    Burris is an overachiever that has problems dropping in coverage. Looks like a base defense, situational, two down LB. Had some success rushing the QB

    And the Lions, the recipient of the Raiders fifth round pick took Chris Greenwood, my draft favorite in that slot. Talk about irony!

    Like the Raiders third round pick, not really on board with Burris. Hopefully Reg has something in mind with subsequent pick.

  • DKnight007

    T Lewis, Winn, Mossaquio or Johnson the next pick for Raiders?

    Or Marvin Jones?

    Our starter in Nickel is a FA aquistion from GB. You really think Norman was better than our FA?

  • priesttj

    I just hope CB Chris Greenwood, 6′1 192, 4.42 forty and a consensus “Draft Sleeper” does not turn into a steal for the Lions.

    Jake Crawford???

  • Kirk

    Jack Crawford

    StrengthsCrawford has an amazing frame for defensive end. Taller than 6-foot-5, he is going to get his hands up and disrupt passes at the next level. Even if he has to develop early on, he can contribute right away in this aspect. He is athletic for his position and it shows when he is running down cross-field plays. He is adept at shedding blocks and getting to the ball. For a raw player, he has a surprising feel when working against the run game. He struggles against the pass and is still developing his technique to be more effective there, but his frame gives him plenty of potential.
    WeaknessesCrawford is still developing as a football player. It is obvious at times that he hasn’t been playing the game very long; he has difficulty reading offensive lines and reacting to plays against the run. Once there, he is disruptive and effective, but he could be a deer in headlights early on at the next level. He is not very quick off the ball and will need to continue to develop his speed and burst. He looks nice but can’t really burst in short areas to get to the quarterback and finish the play.

    Crawford has a Twitter handle. ” Sack Religious”

    By taking Crawford you are indicating you are going to run a 4-3 defense. 275 lbers (this guy has Howie Long’s height/weight measureables) can’t play the five technique. This guy won’t be able to drop in coverage, so he’s not going to play olb. I prefer the 4-3 but i thought Allen was a proponent of the 3=4. So what’s going on?

  • http://ibabuss.com antispy3

    # 49 & #79, your fears will become reality. . .unfortunately.

    As far as Crawford; does he love football? Sounds like a developmental pick. . .
