Oakland will either draft Donald Penn's replacement at LT, draft a cornerback, or an inside linebacker with their first pick. Those three priorities are above drafting a running back considering Oakland already drafted a running back this year. And Latavius Murray is just fine
I think they could have drafted quite a bit better. Maybe looked @ Thompson from BSU at safety. I think anyone that passed on Booker missed a chance on a RB talent steal. Alexander was rated higher than drafted, but guard seems to have a low value on a lot of teams. Cook being drafted wasn`t a horrible pick in terms of the position & need. I just think they should have waited 1 year to grab a QB prospect. I hope Cook works out, but you could almost drop each player by one round for a better value. Joseph was going late 2nd round to many scouts. The way WAS drafted I don`t think they would have taken him @ pick 22.

2014 NFL Free Agent Tracker - Kickers:
Steven Hauschka, K, Seahawks. Age: 29. Re-signed with Seahawks (3 years, $9.15 million)
Steven Hauschka went 33-of-35 in 2013. He was just 4-of-10 from 50-plus prior to this past season, but he was a perfect 3-of-3 from that distance last year.
Phil Dawson, K, 49ers. Age: 39. Re-signed with 49ers (2 years)
Despite his age, Phil Dawson remains one of the league's top kickers. He went 32-of-36 in 2013, including 4-of-6 from 50-plus. Over the past three years, he's 18-of-21 from beyond that distance.
Rob Bironas, K, Titans. Age: 36.
Rob Bironas wasn't cut because of performance issues, given that he was 25-of-29 last year, including 2-of-3 from 50-plus. Tennessee axed him because of money (saves $3.125 million). Bironas is still a very good kicker, but his age is becoming an issue.
Nick Folk, K, Jets. Age: 29. Franchised by Jets
Nick Folk was perfect on field goals this past season until a fierce wind blew an attempt wide of the uprights in Week 11.
Adam Vinatieri, K, Colts. Age: 41. Re-signed with Colts (2 years)
The ageless Adam Vinatieri is still getting it done. He was 35-of-40 in 2013, including 4-of-6 from 50-plus.

Josh Brown missed just two field goals in 2013, though he didn't attempt any tries from beyond 50.

Jay Feely has been up and down his career. He went 30-of-36 this past season, including 3-of-5 from 50-plus, but he'll turn 38 in May.
