Oakland Raiders: 2013 Mock Draft, 2nd Edition

Quite a bit has changed since my first mock of the Oakland Raiders' 2013 NFL Draft. The Senior Bowl and NFL Combine have passed and there were winners and losers from both. As such, the projections change as well.

In addition, the Raiders have quietly begun addressing their defensive losses with early free agent signings. While they have made solid selection with Kaluka Maiava, Pat Sims, and Jason Hunter, there is still a ton of work to do. 

This team still lacks a game-breaker defensively and that should be GM Reggie McKenzie's No. 1 priority heading into this draft. Much of that will be based on the defensive scheme that Oakland runs in 2013. Some have begun speculating that the Raiders might move to a 3-4 defense, but nothing has been said from the Raiders themselves.

So all the preliminaries aside, let's dig in starting with the first round.
