McKenzie says plenty of interest in No. 3 pick by other teams

General manager Reggie McKenzie is receiving plenty of “action” from teams inquiring about the prospect of the Raiders trading the No. 3 pick in the NFL draft, but he isn’t the one doing the dialing of the phone.
The Raiders are without second- and fifth-round picks in this year’s draft. Trading away the No. 3 pick is a sure-fire way to acquire additional picks, be it in this year’s draft and/or next year’s draft.
“We want some guys that want to play for the Raiders,” McKenzie said of the kind of players he seeks. “We want some guys that are going to work, that are going to do everything they can to be the best football player.”
For now, McKenzie is standing pat, and he said he has a pretty good idea who the Raiders are going to take Thursday night if they hold on to the pick.
The Raiders have plenty of needs on a team that is fresh from a 4-12 season, boasts a new quarterback in Matt Flynn and jettisoned several starters.
To that end, McKenzie said he is intent upon finding difference-makers in this year’s draft, players that can “impact” games.
Using the No. 3 pick gives the Raiders their best shot at finding one of those types of players, be it one of three highly rated offensive tackles – Luke Joeckel, Eric Fisher or Lane Johnson – defensive tackles Star Lotulelei and Sharrif Floyd, linebacker Dion Jordan or defensive end Ezekiel Ansah.
McKenzie’s first pick in the 2012 draft came at the end of the third round. He said he feels a lot better going into this draft with a first-round pick at his disposal.
“I feel much more at ease to where we are and who I have in that room feeding me information,” McKenzie said.

    Hey Genital, how far do you live from SunnyTown or wherever the heck Nob Bust lives?

    You should catch a bus to one of his practices and give Blog Nation your professional opinion on his coaching talents

    I’m sure that’d be the day Nob comes down with a bad head cold, but at least you could check out some of his NFL-ready defensive alignments

    Everybody shut up!

    A 5 technique in 4/3 base defense is crucial to that unit’s success.

    Who will play that role depends a number of factors.

    I predicted Ravens would win the SB well before they actually did.

    I also predicted who each and every playoff team would be and correctly predicted each game.

    You know why? Cuz I’m smarter than anyone else.

    I live, eat and breathe football.

    Case closed.

    Check mate.

    Eat it.

    I know football and you don’t.

    With the draft just 2 days away the difference between having Al Davis in charge and having Reggie McKenzie in charge is very evident. Each year with Al in charge the player that the Raiders were going to draft was usually obvious, now not so much.

    Harsh on the previous scouts. Was it too many “yes men” or not enough of them for Reggie?
    Good luck to us all with whatever he decides, and it is weird knowing we’re not auto-drafting the fastest 40 time.

    It would be nice if the gut can trade back 2, if not 3 times and collect a few more picks. 9-10 drat picks this year would surely fill a few voids on both sides of the ball.

  • TrueIndianaRaider

    Well I really hope Big Reg is serious an people want that pick! Need a second, big time. With that said hopefully it’s within the top 10 still? Unless he can trade back twice an really stockpile the picks(would be great) an we could still stack the lines! Really wanna build our oline.
