Raiders Nation has seen better days but there's still hope ahead as they have the third pick in this years draft and a few very good pieces to build on. Check out our ideas for them for 2013.
2012 Record: 4-12
- - QB Carson Palmer threw for over 4,000 yards and 22 TDs
- - 8th ranked passing offense
- - Craziest fans in the league, which should count for something
- - Darren McFadden had his worst year as a Raider (707 yard, 3.3 per carry avg)
- - 28th ranked rushing offense
- - 31st ranked defense in sacks
- - First Draft Position #3: DT Shariff Floyd or NT Star Lotulelei
- - Free Agent Targets: NT Glenn Dorsey, DB Dominique Rogers-Cromartie, and G Louis Vasquez
- - Trade For: Veteran DB Darrelle Revis
- - What IF: They switch to the read-option offense and start Terrelle Pryor at QB?
