Oakland Raiders 2013 Mock Draft: Predictions for Day 3

The Raiders have selected prospects on three different areas of the field so far in the 2013 NFL draft.  Yesterday, they took their top rated prospect, former Houston CB DJ Hayden, in the first round.

Today, they added physically gifted but very inexperienced Florida State OT Menelik Watson in the second and solid, if not spectacular, LB Sio Moore in the third.

Reggie McKenzie continues to identify and draft players who have the physical abilities to make a smooth transition to the NFL and who are competitive and focused on football.

The Raiders have not upgraded several positions that sorely need to be addressed before camp including the defensive line and tight end positions.

McKenzie believes in drafting the best player available early on in drafts and drafting more for need later, when the picks are a bit more interchangeable in terms of value.

Read on for projections of who the Raiders may target on day three of the NFL draft.
