Draft Grades: Did the Raiders Discover Treasures?


Draft Grade:  B-


The Draft

1. D.J. Hayden, CB, Houston. 

2. Menelik Watson, OT, Florida State.

3. Sio Moore, LB, Connecticut.

4. Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas.

5. Nick Kasa, TE, Colorado.

6. Latavius Murray, RB, UCF.

7. Mychal Rivera, TE, Tennessee.

8. Stacy McGee, DT, Oklahoma.

9. Brice Butler, WR, San Diego State.

10. David Bass, DE, Missouri Western.


Biggest Needs: 


DB, QB  & OL


What they did right: 

D.J. Hayden is an amazing story and Menelik Watson is just the type of player the Raiders needed to find in this draft.  If they are able to develop the promising QB Tyler Wilson, they might be good a lot sooner then most people expect.


What they did wrong:

They might regret not taking a QB earlier and only time will tell if their later choices make an impact.
