The Phinsider Community Mock Draft: Pick #4 - Oakland Raiders

With the third pick in The Phinsider Community Mock Draft, the Atlanta Falcons select Matt Ryan, QB, Boston College.

Ryan received 68% of the total vote.  Glenn Dorsey was in second place, with 21%.

So now the draft looks like this so far:

  1. Miami Dolphins - Chris Long, DE, Virginia (49%)
  2. St. Louis Rams - Jake Long, OT, Michigan (67%)
  3. Atlanta Falcons - Matt Ryan, QB, BC (68%)
Up next, with the 4th pick, are the Oakland Raiders.  For all of your Raider needs, including news and insight, check out Silver and Black Pride.  Below are the Raiders' draft needs, according to NFL Draft Countdown:
1. Defensive Line: Depending on where the choose to play Tommy Kelly, who they grossly overpaid for in free agency, they will either need find a stud pass rusher at defensive end or defensive tackle.
2. Offensive Tackle: Either Kwame Harris or second year pro Mario Henderson will hold down the old fort at left tackle (they hope) but Cornell Green leaves much to be desired as the starting right tackle.
3. Wide Receiver: Javon Walker was signed to a huge contract but he has a long history of knee injuries and when you get beyond him and Ronald Curry there is not anything worth getting excited about.
