In a rare move, Mel Kiper gives positive grades for the Raiders' Day 2 draft

ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. spends months pouring over draft evaluations to come up with opinions and mock drafts.

After the picks, he spends minutes raking through the best and worst drafts from the previous day. In that time, it's a fair assumption that he's listed the Oakland Raiders on the "bad" side of the dual-headed list far more often than any other team.

Based on Day 2 of the 2013 NFL Draft, he put the Raiders in the "good" column, praising the team for taking offensive tackle Menelik Watson in the second round and outside linebacker Sio Moore in the third round.

Raiders trade down for the second time

By Steve Corkran
Saturday, April 27th, 2013 at 9:19 am in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders traded their fourth-round pick (No. 100) overall for a later fourth-round pick (No. 112) and one of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ sixth-round picks (No. 181).

This marks the second time Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie has traded down in this year’s draft.

Earlier, he traded the No. 3 pick to the Miami Dolphins for the Nos. 12 and 42 picks.

The Raiders used those picks on cornerback D.J. Hayden and offensive tackle Menelik Watson in the first and second rounds, respectively.

The Raiders now have four picks in the sixth round today and one in the seventh. They’re still without a fifth-rounder.
