The Oakland Raiders are the only team in the NFL currently without a first-round pick. The New England Patriots own the No. 17 pick, which the Raiders sent them for defensive lineman Richard Seymour in September 2009.
However, I wanted to look at some of the other names the Raiders could consider in the second round:
Clint Boling, OG, Georgia: He’s athletic and strong and should be available at No. 48.
Curtis Brown, CB Texas: He has excellent speed and good size. Looks to be a Raider-type CB.
Marcus Cannon, OG, TCU: A massive, strong player.
Bruce Carter LB, North Carolina: Some teams aren’t high on him, but he could be intriguing.
Quinton Carter, S, Oklahoma: One of the better safeties available.
Andy Dalton, QB, TCU: He doesn’t have a great arm, but he’s a winner.
Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia: One of the better second-round prospects at the position.
Orlando Franklin, OG, Miami: He could fit in with Oakland nicely.
Brandon Harris, CB, Miami: He’s small, but dynamic.
Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada: He could be the type of player Al Davis falls in love with.
Christian Ponder, QB, Florida State: Many scouts think he’ll be a NFL starter soon.
Aaron Williams, CB, Texas: He’s a second-round quality cornerback.
