Raiders trade with Dolphins


The Raiders traded the No. 3 pick in the NFL draft Thursday night to the Miami Dolphins.

The Raiders received Miami’s 12th pick in the first round and a second-round pick, No. 42. The Dolphins used the third pick to select Oregon outside linebacker Dion Jordan.

The Raiders entered the draft without a second-round draft pick, having sent it to the Cincinnati Bengals in exchange for quarterback Carson Palmer in 2011.

Considering most draft analysts felt there wasn’t a big disparity in talent from the first half of the first round to the second, it was worthwhile for Oakland to get the second-round pick lost in the Palmer deal.

  • Dakota

    Hope that heart tape holds up.


  • Al_is_theraiders

    Lmao…. They needed it.

  • rediaR

    Best corner in the draft. Not a DT. Not Geno. I am more than fine with this.

  • OH MY SCIENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • IGAG

    I like Hayden as a person, but Reggies scouts suck balls.

  • Al_is_theraiders

    Only problem is….. They already had this guy….dvd

  • JT

    Oh my god, nooo…. nooo. Bad pick.

  • Marks hair

    better than milliner

  • PlunkforHOF

    I’m undecided.. We have been weak at CB

  • Chris in NY

    Meh. I think Hayden’s a good player, but CBs are not difference-makers and the fact this guy almost died a few months ago is a little worrisome.

  • This is a fumble pathetic not getting any of my money next year.

  • WTF?!?!?!

  • beach

    OMG. Why?

    I am so angry

    How can you leave Star and Floyd there
    Floyd is average and Star has questionable love for the game. Plus DT isn’t a position of high need.

  • say goodbye to Star…

    Al Davis dies and Reggie spends his very first 1st Round pick on a Speedster CB.

    Jesus H Christ… the more things change the more they stay the same.

  • ElkGRaider

    First all the Reggie haters talk about our “backup” CB’s…now we take one and its terrible…

  • morilla

    Shocked people are upset, that’s a Al pick right there.

  • aig-raiders

    glad we passed on geno but Star will not be there SUCKS!!!!

  • to the posts

    what,, star’s still there,,, wow this is a disgrace

  • nwr8r

    I need more to drink. Is Al running this?

  • This reminds me of when Al took Mike Mitchell way too high!


  • 00tt00

    You may run through a wall and doo all you can when when your poor and someone is hanging 20M in front of you…….once you cash that check your health becomes the priority…… Reggie BLOWS

  • RaidingTexas

    A fuggin nearly dead, height-challenged CB. Just stinks. This is an absolute disaster. You can’t spin it any other way. Just awful for a #12 pick.

  • RaiderFan-n-KC

    As long as it’s not Geno, I’m happy

    CB is the most useless position in the NFL now…

    I swore we were done with this crap when the old man passed.

    Not even Tyler Eiffert.

  • Thec

    TRENCHMEN draft and you take a CB????

  • nwr8r

    I hope he can cover a receiver for at least 7 seconds

  • SilverAndBlackBleeder

    not gonna knock the pick ’cause I’m not gonna act like I’ve watched one minute of Houston college football; and it is a passing league now…would’ve liked Floyd, Jones or Star, but it is what it is…. hope Big Mack knows what he’s doing…at least we have a starting corner worth getting excited about

  • hellsbells

    Oh well

  • Purvisman/Intrepid/Eternal Optimist

    Didn’t JFB want us to trade UP to get Geno?

  • nwr8r

    Reggie is looking at Peyton, Alice and Phillis. Does no good if we can’t collapse the pocket or get to them.

  • Dakota

    Who will be our next GM?

  • 00tt00

    Even eifert would have been a nice consolation

  • Cervantes


    We give up Jordan for a guy that almost FUGGIN DIED at CORNER


  • RaiderFan-n-KC

    We have a corner worth starting now, now we need a pass rusher in the 2nd

  • Jackie Bibby

    Where is hunter? FIRE REGGIE NOW!

  • Kirk

    Golden opportunity wasted.

    The Raiders really are the dumbest team in football.

    Flynn will be injured by game 4 because of no pass protection.

  • dr_robert

    best corner in the draft.

    impact player.

    star was NEVER in consideration.

    Don’t pull your punches.

  • Well a little stunned but we sucked against the pass and d-line is real deep in this draft. and if C.B not coveted look at Revis

  • dr_robert

    pass rusher coming in 2nd.

  • SnBG
