Raiders trading down?

Several reports mention the Raiders as the team being targeted by other teams interested in moving up in the first round of the NFL draft’s first round today so that they can get their hands on Oakand’s No. 3 pick.
It’s important to note that none of the reports cites named sources and that Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie gave no indication Tuesday in a news conference whether he wants out of No. 3.
Of course, it makes sense for teams to call the Raiders because the Raiders are in dire need of adding a slew of players to a roster in the midst of a major overhaul, and not just one top-teir guy.
Teams mentioned as being interested in trading up to No. 3 include the Detroit Lions at No. 5, the Cleveland Browns (No. 6), the Arizona Cardinals (No. 7) and the Miami Dolphins (No. 12).
The thinking goes, the Browns and Lions are high on Brigham Young defensive end Ezekiel Ansah and the Cardinals and Dolphins want to make sure they get one of the three offensive tackles expected to go within the top 10 — Luke Joeckel, Eric Fisher and Lane Johnson.
If the Raiders bite, they surely could recoup a second-round pick, which they are without as a result of the trade for quarterback Carson Palmer in 2011, and possibly more, especially if they get multiple teams vying for the third pick.
McKenzie said he has a pretty good idea on which player the Raiders are going to get at No. 3 if they opt against a trade down. He just might be able to get a comparable player at, say, No. 5, No. 6 or No. 7, as well as one or more additional picks in this year’s draft.
So, let the speculation begin, as the first round nears — it starts at 5 p.m. PDT — and McKenzie’s time for contemplation runs out.

    Red Hot Baby… “Long shot to keep the pick”

    Where do these guys get this stuff? is this buzz from Agents talking to one another?

    From RotoWorld:

    NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports the Raiders’ pick at No. 3 is “red hot” with trade action.
    The rest of the NFL seems to have determined Eric Fisher and Luke Joeckel will be the Nos. 1 and 2 picks. That would leave Oklahoma’s Lane Johnson as the consensus top tackle left, and he’s known to be coveted by not only Arizona but potentially Detroit and Baltimore. If the Raiders sit at No. 3 — which at this point seems a long shot — they’re tentatively expected to draft Sharrif Floyd.

    I think Ziggy Ansah counts as a “difference maker” AND a player with “good high character” and talent with big upside IMO.

    Attributes that McK says he values in a player.

    Hunter

    Do not think you are a racist but wonder who you like in Draft. Maybe a fast CB like Al is the Raiders? Maybe a freakish project at #3 overall like Anash or Johnson that had good combine? Or do you think we should trade up and actually not get the player we are targeting?

    Those are all AD classic moves over the last 15-20 years.

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

    Hunter won’t tell you. He doesn’t want to close off any of his hating options, you see.
    ***************************
    Oh I forgot one, lets trade it to a team for an aging veteran on the downside of his career (is that a move you would like maybe trade to Baltimore for Dumbmerville or something like that)?

  • itzSteve

    This is gonna be a fun day! Come on Reggie…it’s time to play “Let’s make a deal!” I say Reggie trades back three times in the first round, collecting a couple of 2nd and 3rd round picks for this year, and a couple more 2nd and 3rd round picks next year along with possibly a 1st rounder…
