Default On the eve of the draft...

Could you Imagine a team with Aaron Rodgers throwing to Larry Fitzgerald AND Megatron... or turning around to hand off to CJ Spiller running behind an offensive line that had Nate Solder & Eugene Monroe?! Then facing their defense that had Glen Dorsey, Dre Kirkpatrick, and Donte Whitner!!! Super Bowl(s)? Probably! This team COULD have been the Oakland Raiders.

Here is the 1st Round Picks for the Raiders in the last 10 years and the player selected immediately after the Raiders selected.

2012
17. Pick traded to Bengals for Palmer (Traded to Cards for 6th Round Pick)
This pick ended up to be Dre Kirkpatrick CB form Bama

2011
17. Pick traded to New England for Richard Seymour (RELEASED)
This pick ended up to be Nate Solder OL from Colorado

2010
8. Rolando McClain (RELEASED)
9. NEXT SELECTION: Bills selected CJ SPILLER

2009
8. Darrius Heyward-Bey (RELEASED)
9. NEXT PICK: Jags selected Eugene Monroe

2008
4. Darren McFadden (Played 57 of 80 games 72%)
5. NEXT PICK: Chiefs selected Glenn Dorsey

2007
1. JaMarcus Russell (RELEASED)
2. NEXT PICK: Lions selected Calvin Johnson.
ALSO passed on Adrian Peterson

2006
7. Michael Huff (RELEASED)
8. NEXT PICK: Bills selected Donte Whitner

2005
23. Fabian Washington (traded to Ravens for 4th rnd pick)
24. NEXT PICK: Packer selected Aaron Rodgers

2004
2. Robert Gallery, OT, (RELEASED)
3. NEXT PICK: Cards selected Larry Fitzgerald.

2003
31. Nnamdi Asomugha (RELEASED)
32. Tyler Brayton ( RELEASED)

Out of the 11 1st round picks the Raiders owned, they released 8 of those players they selected or traded for. They have kept only 1 on their current roster. They traded away 2 for lower value draft picks. They actually get to pick in the 1st round this year at 3rd overall.

I am curious who the Eagles will select at 4th overall.

We could have had Aaron Rodgers. But we liked Jake too much.

If they would have gotten any one of those players, they most likely wouldn't have been in position to get any of the rest.
