Raiders to Pick Third for First Time


The Raiders selected RB Darren McFadden 4th overall in the 2008 NFL Draft.

The Raiders will select third overall in 2013 for the first time since the National Football League and American Football League adopted a common draft in 1967.

The Silver and Black have selected second overall twice (1997, 2004) and fourth twice (1998, 2008), but have never selected third.

2012 RB Trent Richardson Alabama Cleveland
2011 DT Marcell Dareus Alabama Buffalo
2010 DT Gerald McCoy Oklahoma Tampa Bay
2009 DE Tyson Jackson LSU Kansas City
