Analysis: I think that if Bortles or Bridgewater drops to the Raiders at No. 5 they'd be very happy, but if not they'd love to trade back (I'm not sure that Manziel is what they're looking for at QB). This is a team with holes all over the roster, so being able to trade back and pick up a guy like trade back and pick up a guy like WR Mike Evans, CB Justin Gilbert or OT Zack Martin later while while also stockpiling extra picks would be ideal. However, if the Raiders are stuck here, I think they'll take the best player available, and in this scenario that would be either Greg Robinson or Watkins. I'll go with Watkins, who would bring big-play ability and an elite skill set at the receiver position.
