Hey - you just figured out that a "must-win" situation teams were 0-2, and you are doing exactly the same with Cowboys! I know Romo returns, but given Panthers' strength, I don't think Cowboys will cover at +1, let alone PK.
The Raiders have some solid building blocks on defense, but they still need lots of help on this side of the ball, particularly at linebacker. Jaylon Smith would provide a big boost in the lacking middle of Oakland's stop unit, and he also happens to be one of the best prospects available at this juncture, so he makes sense for multiple reasons.
Pick change; previously A'Shawn Robinson, DT
Rd. 2, Pk. 19
Carl Nassib, DE, Penn State
The Raiders are getting decent play out of Aldon Smith, but trusting him for the long term is probably not a good idea, so here's some insurance.
Pick change; previously Darian Thompson, S

Karl Joseph, S, West Virginia
Despite his age, Charles Woodson is somehow playing like one of the top safeties in the NFL. As remarkable as this is, Woodson can't last much longer, so here's a future replacement.
Oakland needs a lot of upgrades to its secondary. The Raiders need a No. 1 cover corner and a safety to replace Charles Woodson. Here's the latter.
White has 27 tackles with three passes broken up and a punt returned for a touchdown this season. He had some struggles with a big receiver in Mississippi State's De'Runnya Wilson. The 5-foot-11, 191-pounder is fast with the ability to prevent separation.
White played well in 2013 and 2014 with two picks in each year and solid run support. He had 55 tackles as a freshman and 33 stops as a sophomore. White has shown steady ball skills while batting away seven passes in 2013 and six as a sophomore.
Oakland grabs more defensive line talent to disrupt the inside with Khalil Mack coming off the edge.
Day has 37 tackles, 13.5 for a loss, three sacks, one forced fumble and two passes batted so far in 2015. He has been very impressive and disruptive for Notre Dame. The 6-foot-2, 285-pounder was a disruptive presence for Notre Dame in 2014, totaling 40 tackles with 7.5 for a loss, one sack, two forced fumbles and two passes batted. He played better than the numbers indicate, too. Day has some natural strength and athleticism to him.
Pick change; previously Spencer Drango, OL
Rd. 3, Pk. 18
Cassanova McKinzy, ILB, Auburn
The Raiders traded away Sio Moore and have a lot of veterans starting the middle, but lack a dynamic starter. Here's a potential leader for Oakland's defense.
McKinzy (6-3, 253) is a tough run defender who has shown good instincts. In 2015, he has 66 tackles with 10 for a loss, five sacks and a forced fumble. McKinzy put together quality tackles totals as a junior (91) and sophomore (75).
Justin Tuck and Kahlil Mack are listed as the DEs on the First Depth Chart. By Drafting Joey Bosa,Mack will shift back to the STUD Linebacker that he is.With Bosa's Versatile speed and size The Raiders Defense will start looking like a success.Oakland will likely not have a top ten pick if cooper is a first year success
