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.
