The Oakland Raiders did not receive a selection in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft on Thursday, due to trades in the draft order in previous years. They'll finally have a turn at bat on Friday, however, as the second and third rounds will take place at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
The first round of the draft was unexpected and a little bizarre, as most of the teams bucked the expectations that many mock drafts foisted upon them in the months leading up to the event.
The Raiders will not be making their first pick until the very end of round three, barring any trades. That pick is No. 95, a compensatory selection due to the number of free agents who departed last season (many of them big names). They'll be unable to flip the No. 95 pick if they plan on moving up though, as compensatory picks cannot be traded.
