CBS Mock Draft

No Bullshit. Just Real Oakland Raiders Talk!

CBS Mock Draft

Postby Tenebrous » Fri Apr 03, 2015 2:43 pm

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers — Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State — His pro day did nothing to change Winston's status as the No. 1 pick. Tampa is just hoping he doesn't do anything silly/stupid between now and the time the Bucs are on the clock. The Bucs don't need any real reason to pull the trigger.

2. Tennessee Titans — Leonard Williams, DT, USC — The safe choice once again, with a hypothetical Philip Rivers trade not materializing in this hypothetical draft. Williams feels like such a safe choice (even though such a thing doesn't exist), he can improve this defense immediately and it keeps Ken Whisenhunt from being under the gun with a high-profile quarterback taken at the top of the draft. You have one of those and your clock is ticking.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars — Dante Fowler, Jr., OLB, Florida — In this scenario, Dave Caldwell is in love with the local Florida product and wants to bring in a LEO for Gus Bradley's defense. Fowler is a dangerous pass rusher and has versatility after the way the Gators used him all over the field last season.

4. New York Jets (via MOCK TRADE Oakland Raiders) — Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon — The Jets fall for the smokescreen, get aggressive and leapfrog Washington to grab Mariota. The cost isn't prohibitive because they're only jumping two spots and they lock down their quarterback of the future who could theoretically play right away in a Chan Gailey offense. Cannot fathom a world in which Mariota falls out of the top five.

5. Washington Redskins — Vic Beasley, OLB, Clemson — Washington is fine with whatever because they can still nab a guy who gives them a pass-rushing threat to pair opposite Ryan Kerrigan. Beasley isn't a perfect three-down fit but when he gets after the quarterback he gets after the quarterback.

6. Oakland Raiders (via MOCK TRADE New York Jets) — Kevin White, WR, West Virginia — Finding difficulty not projecting White as a money fit for the Raiders. Derek Carr needs weapons and White has the talent, size and speed to be a guy who can impact at the next level right away.

7. Chicago Bears — Amari Cooper, WR, Alabama — Back-to-back wideouts here, with the Bears re-loading after the trade of Brandon Marshall to New York. Cooper is a different weapon but he's a nice compliment to Alshon Jeffery and is polished enough to start and produce for Chicago early.

This would be a pleasant turn of events for the Raiders.
