Round 2 possibilities for Raiders, Chargers

The Oakland Raiders and the San Diego Chargers are both in solid position in the second round, which begins at 6:30 p.m. ET Friday. Oakland has the No. 42 pick (via a trade with Miami) and San Diego picks No. 45.

Denver, meanwhile, is slated to pick 58th, fifth-to-last in the round, while Kansas City does not have a selection, having sent its No. 34 pick to San Francisco in the the Alex Smith trade. (There is some chance the Chiefs get the No. 54 pick from Miami if the teams can yet work out a Branden Albert trade.)
