The Silver and Black has seen a total makeover since the regime handed over the keys to general manager Reggie McKenzie. The new GM addressed the club’s gameplan in a press conference for the earlier this month for the draft. Tonight the Oakland Raiders made their first choice in the third round.
The Raiders finally make their first pick with 95th overall pick in the NFL draft and select OT Tony Bergstrom Utah. Bergstrom has a good overall strength and explodes off the line as a run blocker. He has enough athleticism to get by in pass protection. Expect him to play either at right tackle or fit inside at guard with the Raiders offensive scheme.
Expect the team to continue to make more daunting decisions to try to strengthen the team’s chemistry and instill much-needed discipline as the 2012 NFL regular season inches increasingly closer.
