NFL mock draft: Raiders could go with any of three Texas A&M Aggies

The National Football Post's mock draft has the Oakland Raiders selecting Texas A&M's Jake Matthews with the third overall selection.


In the National Football Post's 2.0 version of the 2013 NFL mock draft, Russ Lande has the Oakland Raiders picking Texas A&M offensive lineman Jake Matthews with the third overall selection.

Lande has the Kansas City Chiefs taking Utah defensive lineman Star Lotulelei with the first pick and the Jacksonville Jaguars selecting Florida State defensive end Bjoern Werner at No. 2. The Raiders, needing a tremendous amount of help up front, could then take Matthews at No. 3.

The 6'5, 305 pound offensive tackle isn't the only available option. His teammate, Luke Joeckel, is expected to go just as high, if not before, Matthews. Lande has Joeckel going No. 4 to the Philadelphia Eagles, but some mock drafts predict Joeckel will go first overall.

Another Texas A&M product, defensive end Damontre Moore, is in the top-five in some mock drafts, although Lande has him falling to No. 31. A defensive lineman would also make sense for the Raiders after watching Richard Seymour suffer through injury this season and the unit struggling in general.
