Oakland Raiders Mock Dream Draft

By Jaames6 on 4/1/2016 at 5:42 PM

The 1st Mock of 2016... My mind will change on things as the draft gets closer... #RaiderNation


1st (14th) WLB Su'a Cravens - USC

Analysis: I don't particularly care for the top portion of this draft. Reggie can afford to move down MANY spots and nab this guy..

With C-Wood's retirement, The Raiders need an impact player in the back end of that defense.. Safety that's big enough to play against these new age tight ends.. Can line up as linebacker if needed... Adequate in coverage, more than adequate against the run..

Best case scenario, he's Polamalu...
Worst case scenario, he's Darnell Bing...


2nd (13th) WR Braxton Miller - Ohio St.

Analysis: Tremendous athlete... Still fairly raw as a receiver, but showed flashes of playmaking ability once the ball is in his hands... Could potentially be a dangerous slot receiver with Amari and Crabtree on the outside.. KR is also an option...


3rd (12th) SS Jeremy Cash - Duke

Analysis: Originally, I picked Deon Bush from The U in the 5th.
However, I took a look at Jeremy Cash, and OMG!! The violence!!

Led ALL DBs in Tackles For Loss...
3 forced fumbles, 101 total tackles..

Will be great assistance in the run game... This kid is a violent hitter. Has some work to do on the coverage end, but that's what Rod Woodson is here for..


4th (16th) MLB Terrance Smith - Florida St.

Analysis: A player very familiar with Sal Sunseri..
Has the versatility to play inside and outside, so worse case scenario, he will provide valuable depth. Best case scenario, he quietly becomes a productive starter similar to former teammate Telvin Smith. Him and Telvin are similar players.


5th (4th) OC Nick Martin - Notre Dame

Analysis: His big brother is a pretty good lineman in the NFL so far...

As for Nick, he's a guy that brings versatility.. Gives up depth at the guard position and can kick in and play center just in case Rodney Hudson misses any games (God forbid). Had a season ending knee injury couple years ago that he's still getting over.


5th (15th) CB Rashard Robinson - LSU

Analysis: Has off field issues. But has on field talent... With Sean Smith, Amerson and Carrie at the top of the depth chart, Rashard won't have to be rushed out there. Unless his play is too good to leave him on the bench.
Good measurements... speed is there.. Could use a little more bulk..


6th (19th) OT Brandon Shell - South Carolina

Analysis: I was looking for Ian Seau (Junior Seau's nephew), but I stumbled on another nephew...

Massive just like Art.... Gives us young depth at the tackle. He looks like he could play guard..


7th (13th) HB Dwayne Washington - Washington

Analysis: 6'2, 220 pound Former Wide receiver turned Half Back from Washington...

From what I read of him, his big issue is holding on to the ball.. Fumbling is his Achilles heel and you can't afford that in the NFL.

From what I saw of him, he's indeed an athlete.. very fast.. Can create mismatch problems in the pass game.. He is a project that can turn into a weapon. If not, they can move him back to receiver where he can do some damage.
