The Oakland Raiders have been awarded three compensatory picks, a third, a fourth, and a fifth-rounder, along with the fifth and sixth-rounders the team already held. Reggie McKenzie seemed to be all smiles on Monday, and frankly, so was I, when the news was released.

I suspect they do not want them to stockpile them all and try to move up.

Now in OAK dEfense they would be to stupid to pick anyone worth a crap with them and if they did thy would over pay them and fail to be able to resign them after the rookie contract expired.

Have way to much invested in morons and have no cap space each year.

Main article: 2003 Oakland Raiders season (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oakland_Raiders)

Callahan's second season as head coach was considerably less successful. Oakland finished 4–12, their worst showing since 1997. After a late-season loss to the Denver Broncos, a visibly frustrated Callahan exclaimed, "We've got to be the dumbest team in America in terms of playing the game."[32] At the end of the 2003 regular season Callahan was fired and replaced by former Washington Redskins head coach Norv Turner.

Main article: 2004 Oakland Raiders season

The team's fortunes did not improve in Turner's first year. Oakland finished the 2004 season 5–11, with only one divisional win (a one-point victory over the Broncos in Denver). During a Week 3 victory against the Buccaneers, Rich Gannon suffered a neck injury that ended his season and eventually his career. He never returned to the team and retired before the 2005 season.[33] Kerry Collins, who led the New York Giants to an appearance in Super Bowl XXXV and signed with Oakland after the 2003 season, became the team's starting quarterback.

Main article: 2005 Oakland Raiders season

In an effort to bolster their offense, in early 2005 the Raiders acquired Pro Bowl wide receiver Randy Moss via trade with the Minnesota Vikings, and signed free agent running back Lamont Jordan of the New York Jets. After a 4–12 season and a second consecutive last place finish, Turner was fired as head coach.

On February 11, 2006 the team announced the return of Art Shell as head coach. In announcing the move, Al Davis said that firing Shell in 1995 had been a mistake.[34]

Under Shell, the Raiders lost their first five games in 2006 en route to a 2–14 finish, the team's worst record since 1962. Oakland's offense struggled greatly, scoring just 168 points (fewest in franchise history) and allowing a league-high 72 sacks. Wide receiver Jerry Porter was benched by Shell for most of the season in what many viewed as a personal, rather than football-related, decision. Shell was fired again at the end of the season.[35] The Raiders also earned the right to the first overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft for the first time since 1962, by virtue of having the league's worst record.[36]

On January 22, the team announced the hiring of 31-year-old USC offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin, the youngest coach in franchise history and the youngest coach in the NFL.[37] In the 2007 NFL Draft, the Raiders selected LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell with the #1 overall pick. Kiffin coached the Raiders to a 4-12 record in the 2007 season. After a 1-3 start to 2008 and months of speculation and rumors, Al Davis fired Kiffin on September 30, 2008.

Tom Cable was named as his interim replacement, and officially signed as the 17th head coach of the Oakland Raiders on Tuesday, February 3, 2009.

Their finish to the 2008 season would turn out to match their best since they lost the Super Bowl in the 2002 season. However, they still finished 5–11 and ended up third in the AFC West, the first time they did not finish last since 2002. They would produce an identical record in 2009; however, the season was somewhat ameliorated by the fact that four of the Raiders' five wins were against opponents with above .500 records. At the end of their 2009 campaign, the Raiders became the first team in NFL history to lose at least 11 games in seven straight seasons[citation needed] .

In 2010, the Raiders became the first team in NFL history to go undefeated against their own division yet fail to make the postseason (6-0 in the AFC West, 8-8 overall, three games behind the New York Jets for the second Wild Card entry). On January 4, 2011, owner Al Davis informed head coach Tom Cable that his contract would not be renewed, ending his tenure with the organization. Many Raider players, such as punter Shane Lechler, were upset with the decision.

On January 17, 2011, it was announced that offensive coordinator Hue Jackson was going to be the next Raiders head coach. A press conference was held on January 18, 2011, to formally introduce Jackson as the next Raiders head coach, the fifth in just seven years. Following Davis' death during the 2011 season, new owners Carol and Mark Davis decided to take the franchise in a drastically different direction by hiring a general manager. On New Year's Day of 2012, the Raiders played the San Diego Chargers, hoping to go to the playoffs for the first time since 2002, the game ended with a 38-26 loss. Their season ended with another disappointing 8-8 record.

On January 6, 2012, the Raiders named Green Bay Packers director of football operations Reggie McKenzie as the team's first general manager since Al Davis. Given full autonomy over personnel decisions by the Davis family, McKenzie, in his first day on the job, fired head coach Hue Jackson after only one season on January 10, seeking to hire his own head coach instead. In the process, the Raiders lost their sixth head coach in the past ten seasons, none of whom lasted more than two seasons. Two weeks later, McKenzie hired Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen as head coach.

Big difference between drafting in the first 5 picks of the first round, like the Raiders have done more often than not, and drafting towards the end of the first round, like the Broncos have done. The few times the Broncos have actually selected early on in the first, they've nailed their picks.

while I'm not going to add them all up and average it out, it looks like we have had alot more under #16 picks than over 17 or over..

the vast majority of those players were busts. I called it DAFT day while mikey was here because no one ever knew what the hell he was going to do..

Only mobley, wilson and DJ ever got a second bronco contract after or before their rookie contract expired and frankly DJ's was a HUGE mistake monetarily in most folks eyes..

now the jury is still out on DT, Moreno and Ayers. But Clady seems to be getting one..Not so sure in my mind that he is what he seemed to be before the injury.. Time will tell..

They would produce an identical record in 2009; however, the season was somewhat ameliorated by the fact that four of the Raiders' five wins were against opponents with above .500 records. At the end of their 2009 campaign, the Raiders became the first team in NFL history to lose at least 11 games in seven straight seasons[citation needed] .

In 2010, the Raiders became the first team in NFL history to go undefeated against their own division yet fail to make the postseason (6-0 in the AFC West, 8-8 overall, three games behind the New York Jets for the second Wild Card entry). On January 4, 2011, owner Al Davis informed head coach Tom Cable that his contract would not be renewed, ending his tenure with the organization. Many Raider players, such as punter Shane Lechler, were upset with the decision.

On January 17, 2011, it was announced that offensive coordinator Hue Jackson was going to be the next Raiders head coach. A press conference was held on January 18, 2011, to formally introduce Jackson as the next Raiders head coach, the fifth in just seven years. Following Davis' death during the 2011 season, new owners Carol and Mark Davis decided to take the franchise in a drastically different direction by hiring a general manager. On New Year's Day of 2012, the Raiders played the San Diego Chargers, hoping to go to the playoffs for the first time since 2002, the game ended with a 38-26 loss. Their season ended with another disappointing 8-8 record.

On January 6, 2012, the Raiders named Green Bay Packers director of football operations Reggie McKenzie as the team's first general manager since Al Davis. Given full autonomy over personnel decisions by the Davis family, McKenzie, in his first day on the job, fired head coach Hue Jackson after only one season on January 10, seeking to hire his own head coach instead. In the process, the Raiders lost their sixth head coach in the past ten seasons, none of whom lasted more than two seasons. Two weeks later, McKenzie hired Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen as head coach.

im happy you got 3 extra late round picks;D see happy wappy perhaps you can get the next jamarcus russel with the extra picks

No, with those 3 late round picks, they won't have the pressure of having a stud player. They will be hidden unlike that epic failure of a 1st pick in the draft for JaMarcus. That pick is up there with Ryan Leaf.

Orton already has a team..



schucks...

That was my point, maybe the butt-pirates could make a TRADE for Orton for their 1st round picks in 2014 and 2015, that would give them 4 years without picking in the 1st round.
