Our #1 pick will be a high pick, perhaps even #1 overall at this rate.

What do you think we should do with it?

Now with the new CBA the #1 pick is a more valuable commodity, much easier to dangle to other teams.

The Raiders are missing their 2nd round pick and their 5th round picks for 2013. One traded for a player who is an utter piece of garbage, the other traded for a guy who is not on the team anymore already.

I say trade that #1 pick for more picks down the line. The Raiders desperately need to build some depth, and don't need another #1 pick bust.

What are your thoughts?

I think we have to trade for more picks. Pretty sure there will be major housecleaning at the end of the season causing more holes to an already swiss cheese roster. Will be interesting to see what McKenzie does with them. Is he really the talent spotting guru he's been lauded as? Especially considering some of the guys he picked last year are already gone...

Trade for more picks or if the Raiders have a shot at Manti Teo than pull the trigger. The kid is all heart and hustle with the talent to back it up!

I'd still take the picks.

Pryor on offense and Manti on defense with Gruden guiding them to Silver and Black Glory!

The linebacker out of Georgia - Alec Ogletree would not be a bad choice either and he could fall to number 4 or 5 where the Raiders may land.

you are correct - Ogletree is a beast. Would prefer to get more pics though. We have one more year of cap hades I think until Mac can really get major pieces. Right now we are trying to get enough.......core ballers that we can build on later.
