Early look at potential first-round picks

With the college football season about to commence, ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay is getting his ducks in a row by ranking the top players at each position.

While McShay’s board will surely change due to production (both positive and negative) and injures, this list is a nice starting point. At first glance, it looks like a solid list. I think it gives Oakland Raiders fan a nice look at who the team could be interested next year.

As of right now, I think potential target areas for Oakland in the first round include (in no special order) receiver, offensive line, defensive line and cornerback. All areas look intriguing. Give it a look as it’s never too early to consider the future.
