Oakland Raiders
10 Most Commonly Picked Players
Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson , Jr  -  Going to the Raiders on 1174 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Raiders go after the top guy on their draft board and a physical freak in Sammy Watkins to give their young starting QB (whomever that may be) a chance. Watkins proved in the Orange Bowl he has the potential to be Calvin Johnson good, and is just as good of a prospect at Clowney.

Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M , RS Soph  -  Going to the Raiders on 586 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The first of the big three A&M picks are in and Mike Evans comes off the board. Their quarterback in 2014 needs another weapon to get the ball to and Mike Evans is a very good combination of size, strength, and speed. Minnesota robbed Oakland of Mack, but Mike Evans is not a bad consolation prize

Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn , RS Soph  -  Going to the Raiders on 581 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Recently mocked Watkins here but after further evaluation Mackenzie should realize Robinson will be an 8-10 year starter at LT and is worth picking over Watkins.

Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo , RS Sr  -  Going to the Raiders on 502 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Raiders need a quarterback, but they can get one in the second. They go with Mack, who is the second-best defensive prospect in the draft. He and linebacker Sio Moore would be a force to be reckoned with.

Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M , Sr  -  Going to the Raiders on 459 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Matt McGloin and Terrelle Pyror shed a tear as the Raiders refuse to reach for Carr and decade that B1G QB's a better than David Carr's brother. The Raiders are more excited for free agency this year than the draft.

Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State , RS Sr  -  Going to the Raiders on 445 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Reggie McKenzie has shown that his show will be run in a variety of ways. Whether that is a positive or negative is to be determined, but the Raiders will take Derek Carr here to develop under the tutelage of Matt Schaub. It will save face for McKenzie to have Carr behind Schaub in case the incumbent plays badly.

Blake Bortles, QB, UCF , RS Jr  -  Going to the Raiders on 409 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
This is likely the last chance that Reggie McKenzie and Dennis Allen will have to turn things around in Oakland, and to hopefully save their jobs they pick a potential franchise QB. Bortles isn't really worth it here, but the value of QBs will drive the Raiders to make this pick. The Raiders have cap space to build a roster around him as well. If Clowney falls, maybe they select him and try to go after Michael Vick as their QB. But with their jobs on the line, I don't think they will want to trust either Vick, McGloin or Pryor. The Raiders are a pretty solid bet to draft QB.

Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M , RS Soph  -  Going to the Raiders on 401 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The non-QBs that the Raiders would covet the most would probably be Watkins and Clowney. With them gone as well as Bortles and Bridgewater gone, the options are interesting. I think in this situation the Raiders would take Manziel and talk about him as the best QB of the draft. OC Greg Olson could be Manziel's biggest gift rather than getting stuck in a situation like Cleveland or Jacksonville where QBs have struggled.

Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina , Jr  -  Going to the Raiders on 375 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Raiders are a tough call as they have a lot of holes to fill, but whoever they draft can be sure that they aren't starting their career off on the right foot, heading into the black hole. They could very well trade this pick to St. Louis to get a top QB. Oakland needs a lot of things, QB being one, however they lose out on the top 3 in this draft and they can't see taking Carr this high up, so they don't go QB here. The experts say the Raiders need WRs, but I think WR, along with RB, is actually a strength for them. The take best player available here, Jadaveon Clowney.

Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville , Jr  -  Going to the Raiders on 356 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Bridgewater is kind of the "blah" quarterback prospect of the top 3 QB's. He is accurate, but not much of a scrambler and not a huge arm nor huge stature. However, he is better than anything the Raiders can put on the field in 2014 and thus he is the pick.
