Trade Log:

Oakland Raiders have traded 3.17, 5.17 & 7.17 to San Francisco for 3.12 & 6.9


48 Penn State C/G Stefen Wisniewski — Technically sound lineman with smarts and lineage.

76 Abilene Christian WR Edmond Gates — Quenches Al Davis’ notorious thirst for speed.

113 East Carolina OT Willie Smith — Underrated blocker generating surprisingly little buzz.

174 West Virginia CB Brandon Hogan — Injury and character concerns pushed him down.

181 Northwest Missouri State CB Ryan Jones — Dominant small-schooler with ball skills.

241 Maryland TE Will Yeatman — Raiders apparently plan to convert him to offensive tackle.

The Nnamdi Asomugha-less Raiders appeared to panic after going five rounds without a cornerback, and picked two DBs who may not be selected on “real” draft day.  Hogan almost certainly won’t.  Yeatman is another player with character concerns.  Oakland was already dealing with a limited hand after the Richard Seymour trade cost them their 2011 first-round pick, so it’s hard to blame them for an unimpressive draft.  For what it’s worth, Wisniewski does project as a day-one starter at center.  Gates and Smith both have potential to start down the road.
