Draft Buzz

Ffrom Foxsports.com
The Raiders remain without a first-round selection in this year's draft as a result of trading for wide receiver Randy Moss in March. However, don't be surprised if Davis finagles one out of a team in exchange for a proven player such as cornerback Charles Woodson or by packaging their second-rounder with a veteran player. The Raiders haven't been without a first-round pick since 1989, and they still are in need of a defensive player or two who can make an immediate impact. Adding defensive players still figures to be the main focus for the Raiders in this year's draft, particularly at defensive end, linebacker and cornerback.

Adjustments...

Your Oakland Raiders made an impressive move with the Randy Moss trade. That move by far upgrades the offensive and that is where most of the attention will continue to go, yet there is a concern to address their defensive. The Raiders still have yet to fix the on going dilemma with their star CB Charles Woodson.

Woodson is supposed to receive 10.537 million this coming season. And in all reality that is a lot of money for a corner back. It would also take up 1/8 of the teams salary cap.

Ouch!

Since the Raiders franchised him they are hoping both sides will agree on a long term contract that would lessen the amount he is supposed to receive this year. If not that would leave the Raiders in a bind, with no one looking to trade.
