Oakland Raiders Mock Draft: Final 7-Round Predictions

While the new era in Oakland has begun, the first real event under the leadership of general manager Reggie McKenzie is the 2012 NFL draft. 

This is actually the seventh installment attempting to predict the Raiders' 2012 draft, and a lot has changed since the first such post back in February. 

Reggie McKenzie's first draft will be handicapped, with the first pick not until the end of the third round and of the compensatory variety that can't be traded.

McKenzie has a crisis of depth, and while the roster's top end could have the Raiders competing for the playoffs, a key injury could send the Raiders into the AFC West basement.

Can McKenzie find the Raiders a couple of starters later in the draft like Desmond Bishop, Jermichael Finley or Josh Sitton?
