The Oakland Raiders 2010 draft is over and Raider Nation should be happy.

The Raiders selected productive football players early and saved projects with potential for the later rounds.

Round 1 (8) - Rolando McClain, LB, 6-3, 254, Alabama
Round 2 (49) - Lemarr Houston, DE, 6-2, 305, Texas

Round 4 (108) – Jacoby Ford, WR, 5-9, 181, Clemson (Acquired by trade for Kirk Morrison & a 5th)
Round 5 (138) – Walter McFadden, DB, 5-11, 175, Auburn
Round 5 (153) - Traded to Jacksonville for Quentin Groves
Round 6 (190) – Travis Goethel, LB, 6-2, 240, Arizona
Round 7 (215) – Jeremy Ware, CB, 5-10, 180, Michigan State
Round 7 (251) – Stevie Brown, S, 6-0, 211, Michigan

2012 Round 4 pick - Traded for Jason Campbell

The top undrafted free agents that should be on the Raiders radar:

Tony Washington, OT, 6-6, 311, Abilene Christian
LaGarrette Blount, RB, 6-0, 241, Oregon
Ciron Black, OT, 6-4, 327, LSU
Jevan Snead, QB, 6-3, 219, Mississippi

Here are the thoughts of Mike Mayock:
"Oakland's last two picks have been interesting. They got Bruce Campbell and Jacoby Ford, who are typical Raiders' picks, but they got them at the right time this year. Campbell is a developmental left tackle, with huge upside. Ford is the fastest wide receiver in the draft, and he has return ability too. Also like thier first two picks, Rolando McClain and Lamarr Houston, which will instantly upgrade their defense."

Oakland Raiders Swing for the Fences in 2016 NFL Draft

[embed align="center"][/embed] These aren't your daddy's Oakland Raiders or even your younger self's Raiders. If anything, these are your newborn's Raiders or your puppy's Raiders. These are the Raiders we've never seen before. Indicative of the freshness of the franchise was their 2016 NFL Draft. No longer slave to a high draft pick and desperate needs, the theme of the draft for the Raiders was upside. It's as if general manager Reggie McKenzie got so used to hitting his draft picks out of the park that he started swinging for the fences. We'll have to wait a couple of years before we know if he struck out or if he'll continue his Ruthian ways. First, McKenzie boldly went with a safety at No. 14 overall. Kyle Joseph is coming off a torn ACL and fills a major need, but safety isn't a premium position. Only a handful of safeties have been drafted in the first 14 picks in the last 15 years and include names like Ea

Looking Forward: Raiders 2012 Free Agents

Khalif Barnes - Weakest link on the offensive line with youth behind him. Raiders will look for for other options. It's not as if there aren't a dozen Khalif's on the street each year. Darryl Blackstock - Was a Chuck Bresnahan guy, but found a home on special teams. Would have to make the team as a reserve LB and special teams guy next training camp. Wouldn't be surprised to see him back as a camp body or gone entirely. Kyle Boller - Hue didn't have enough confidence to turn to Boller. Expect the Raiders to look elsewhere for a backup to Carson Palmer. Jerome Boyd - Was nothing more than a reserve and special teams player. Some good moments and some very bad ones. Camp body again and fate will depend on the defensive coordinator. Tyvon Branch - About the only consistent producer in the secondary. Raiders will want to bring him back. Desmond Bryant - He's been great in limited action and can play inside and out. Key reserve. Michael Bush - He'll find a home a
