The Raiders have four picks in the first 35 overall, allowing Head Coach Jon Gruden and General Manager Mike Mayock plenty of wiggle room to make something spectacular happen. Judging from the mock drafts, many expects Gruden and Mayock to take a balanced approached during the draft, targeting players on both sides of the ball.

The good news for the team is that at the No. 4 spot they’ll still be able to select a premiere pass rusher, and many of the highly touted skill positions aren’t expected to be selected until the early 20s when the Raiders are on the clock again. The departure of Jared Cook has left a big hole at the tight end position, but many believe Iowa Hawkeye Noah Fant would be an immediate plug-and-play guy that has vast upside.

In theory, the Raiders could pick a trio of defensive players in the first round and still come out of Day One with an exceptional draft class. We’ll see how it all plays out Thursday night, but the experts have the Raiders picking some studs.
