2012 NFL Draft: The Best Fit for the Oakland Raiders at Every Position

To prepare the team for an era without legendary owner Al Davis, his son Mark Davis gave Reggie McKenzie authority to completely re-shape the football operations.

McKenzie has already put his footprint on the roster and brought in Dennis Allen to be his head coach and allowed him to select his coaching staff.

Changes have been made in most of the major areas in football operations, but outside an upgrade to the computer systems, the scouting department remains unchanged.

McKenzie, Allen and the "interim" scouting department have spent the last two months getting ready for the NFL draft. The culmination of their work will finally be put to the test, and for many their livelihoods could be on the line.

Thousands of pages of reports, dozens of visits, the combine, pro days and hundreds of hours of film work were utilized to prepare for just one event.
