Oakland Raiders 2012 NFL Draft Strategy: Best Player Available

The Oakland Raiders have been wondering how general manager Reggie McKenzie will approach the 2012 NFL Draft. He started to reveal some of his machinations in his latest press conference.

This is probably the right approach to take this year because Oakland has had to lose a lot of players to free agency. Also, considering how the Raiders have only five chances to pick players, McKenzie says that "we need to make them all count". Finally, because the Raiders aren't picking until very late (the third round) this year, they really need to maximize and find out who the best talents are on the board and grab them to ensure they get players who are more likely to pan out on the next level.

To talk about McKenzie and his draft strategy with Raiders fans, head on over to Silver and Black Pride.
