Raiders trade with Dolphins

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Thursday, April 25th, 2013 at 5:45 pm in Oakland Raiders.

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.

    Why a gamble with this pick? Somebody help me understand.

  • rediaR

    I hope Carridine slips to 42.

  • boss01

    This pick absolutely stinks if this kid doesn’t turn out to be the next Revis Island

  • McFaddens_Sneakers

    I like the hayden pick, we get a corner and the two corners we already have will compete for a contract next year. we can only keep one

    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.
    …………………………………………

    Knapp, Dennis Allen, and now this.

    Reggie really is incompetent.

    Ron Wolf recommended Reggie to ruin the Raiders.

    floy or start might still be there tomorrow

  • beach

    They had to have asked the doc if this can happen again right?

  • rudegruden

    Reggie loves his previously injured players.

  • dr_robert

    F’in Reggie sucks. First he gets hosed in the trade down and then let’s his ex-CB coach make the pick! WTF!!! I’m with Hunter, “Fire Reggie Now!” What a joke the Raiders are going to be for at least another year or two. What a F’in joke!!! D linemen on the board Star, Floyd, Tank, Bjoern, Williams, Moore now who we going to start? Houston, Sims, ??, ?? WTF!!! I’m going to take 40mgs of percocet and call it a night!

  • Raider D

    Ron Rivera gets la estrella

    All week we heard how this guy was a player and moving up boards now all these waiting to jump on Reggie come out thrashing. How do you do this and call yourselves raiderfans. Come on WE SUPPORT OUR GUYS! Reggie is a raider and his skill is picking players. He said he was gonna pick a difference maker. He saw something and im not a gm.

    Nice watching the star highlights……what……not us?

  • Que

    and we have a second round pick

  • beach

    A fast corner. Hayden can play. Any doctor in the house? Was it a freak injury?

  • RNOraiderFan

    Manning, Rivers, & Smith going to feel real comfortable sitting in the pocket for 10+ seconds when theyplay the Raiders this year. Not going to matter who we got at CB.

    It’s shocking but I’m on board. One more piece to stop Manning

  • RNOraiderFan

    Hayden couldn’t tackle before his injury, now after his injury he’s scared to tackle too! What a joke!!!

    lol that shait is kicking in

  • SnBG

    Break out the blitzes

  • realtruraider

    I absolutely love the pick, ya’ll need to watch his film before acting a fool, the guy is hands down the best CB in the draft and he will prove it the minute he takes the field.

    LOL at anyone that thinks CB’s aren’t difference makers, thats just foolish and uninformed just like your hate for this pick, educate yourselves, several GM’s had Hayden #1 and some say it wasn’t even close.

    Rumor is Falcons were in talks with Jets to move up to #13 but when Raiders took Hayden they backed off

    Deion hardly tackle and he did ok

  • canadianraider

    how long has it been since we had a good defense?….about the same time we last had a good cb…weve had lineman with bad db and our defense still sucked…i like it….go reggie

  • RNOraiderFan

    Someone anyone show me a highlight where this kid makes a tackle. Please!

  • ESETERIK78

    I can’t even pretend to know how good this kid is, but ANY heart defect/injury would be a red flag for me.

    But, looking optimistically, this kid must have a fire inside to be great after what he went through. But, he’s 5’11″. IDK I’m skeptical. I figured Reg would look for a trench player. Surprised, and not in a good way.

  • RNOraiderFan

    CB’s make a difference??? Oh yeah we were in the playoffs every year when we had Aso.

  • ESETERIK78

    A lot of draft to go. COME ON REG!!!

  • 00tt00

    Kid is going to be scared to hit….especially after cashing the check

  • RNOraiderFan

    DL’s make a difference, QB,s make a difference, sometimes RB’s and LB’s too. Inside out not outside in.

  • McFaddens_Sneakers

    EJ manuel is the first QB off the board

  • Que

    Theres so many more picks we have. Again make your mark reggie

  • RNOraiderFan

    Kid was scared of the hit before the injury. This kid is no Deon Sanders.

  • 00tt00

    I would have preferred geno

  • RNOraiderFan

    F Reggie! Goodnight!
