Raiders trade fifth-round pick

By Steve Corkran
Saturday, April 28th, 2012 at 11:38 am in Oakland Raiders.

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.

    I think we wanted Menzie and traded down to regroup

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

    My theory as well.

  • http://www.addictedtoquack.com RaiderDuck

    Pick #230 basically means Reggie can lock up one his PFAs before the draft is even over.

    You forgot about Suh. They traded Megatron and Suh for our 5th.

    +++++++==

    hahahahahahaha…yeah thats value

  • Dakota

    wow, a 7th rounder…..so what.

  • backstageatapuppetshow

    Regroup?

    WTF are you talking about…

    If these guys don’t know what they are going to do by now a couple hours isn’t going to help figure it out…

    Sell crazy someplace else…..we are all stocked up here!

    i agree

  • guest123

    A 7th rounder is one less person to have to recruit in post draft free agency. That’s of some value.

  • RaiderRockstar

    I think we can get Fangupo or NJB at #168

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

  • Plunder

    Reggie drafted Driver in the 7th.

    Can’t really complain about an extra pick. When was the last time Al traded down? haha

  • YoungAmerican

    If the guy you want isn’t there, and other guys you like will be around later, why not get an extra pick?

  • mcfadden20.

    ReG will trade 148 for 2 6 round picks and 1 7th

  • Al_is_theraiders

    reggie is not ready for this….

  • SharkCatcher

    Still think we are going secondary this next pick ..l be surprised if we don’t draft a Punter

    Very true given the last few years how certain players had multiple offers.

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    Reg going DT on both picks…

  • mcfadden20.

    CODE BLACK

  • YoungAmerican

    Starting to weird me out that Marvin Jones is still on the board. Something’s up. Or he’s this year’s Denarius Moore.

  • Autumn Rising

    Appreciate the info as always, I remember now why I hated watching the draft past the second round. They start ranting and just gloss over half of each damn round! I had no idea what just happened there

    We should have waited on Burris til 148 and taken Norman with 129….

    WRITE THAT DOWN!

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

    Obviously, Reggie didn’t think we could wait without losing the player. Besides, we have CBs (although their quality is yet to be determined). We don’t have LBs (and Burris helps a lot).

    _____________________________________________________

    Well, Raider Duck….Reggie was wrong. Not knocking him….we are all going to be wrong from time to time….but I was right….this time!

  • http://000 Bob Marley

    Moved down just 10 spots for the 23rd pick in the 7th round, right in the middle (there are 46 picks in the seventh round).

    Ok move.

  • aig-raiders

    The key is who was the guy that Reggie wanted and someone else took that made him drop down? I’m thinking it was a CB, either Menzie or Norman.

  • mcfadden20.

    I think Reg will trade 148th for Julies (sp) Peppers of chicago bears and their first rd pick next year

  • J Hill

    S is clearly a need position.

    Allen will get him a physical DB with one of these picks.

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    MCf,

    Man, after the last few days, it wouldn’t surprise me if Reg ‘could’ do that…

  • SharkCatcher

    This next pick will be a d linemen ..write it down ..take a picture.

  • Thec

    I would not take a WR however. Criner and streeter are interesting

  • elraidmanhattan

    Wow can we get this al is the raiders moron out of here. Reggie is doing a great job like both picks and an extra pick is a plus

  • beach

    13. Al is gone and Reggie is ready for this! He is picking talented players with character!

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    @ 30…it’s MR from his i-pad.

  • Autumn Rising

    Reg obviously knows more than I but isn’t there a thin line between a mid seventh rounder and a UFA?

  • xraided

    BigMac won’t get a DT with his remaining picks.. BOOK IT!

  • Thec

    I effin hate the chefs….menzie was right there…

  • aig-raiders

    We should have waited on Burris til 148 and taken Norman with 129….

    WRITE THAT DOWN!
    ——————-
    I’ll take a LB over a cb any day. We had an impact CB here in #21 and he couldnt help us at all on the D.

  • beach

    SharkCatcher, it better be Massaquoi (or Winn).

  • ohioraider

    DL or Safety.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Backstage

    #22 Seriously you need to look what the Jags did – they picked up a LB with similar profile to Burris before the 13th pick in the 5th and Marshall was not as good as Burris. I graduated from Nev Reno and know those two programs. Burris would have been gone to Jags and you can write that down. You are wrong.

  • backstageatapuppetshow

    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!

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

    The big difference is UDFAs you have to compete for. A 7th-rounder is ours, period.

    Mossaqiuo sould still be there at 158, hope Winn is.

    Johnson could still be there or Kaddu. On offense maybe…Polk or Jones?

    Who knows?
    If the scouting did its job, who knows?

    I just keep telling myself that D. Moore was the #148th pick last year and he catches every fuk’n in sight and some that’s not.

    Lol. Al is turning in his grave, so you know Reggie is doing something right.

  • backstageatapuppetshow

    I don’t care where you graduated or what the Jags did…are you trying to convince me or yourself?

    Thec,

    I like the tall kid from Miami. He had size and speed, but no college production.

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    Huff @ Nickel = Harvey Williams @ TE.

    Like Kell’s prom date, it’s ugly.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    *ball!

  • http://000 Bob Marley

    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.

    I believe you have to give Reggie at least a few years before you can judge that. Especially with the limited number of picks he was given and the cap situation he walked into. Remodeling a franchise does not happen in one offseason.
