Post-Draft Outlook:
BEST PICK: Linebacker Rolando McClain: A physical force and a natural leader on a defense that has ranked 29th, 31st and 31st over the past three years. A common sense pick at No. 8 overall to address a major weakness.

A closer look at the Raiders' picks: Round 1/8 -- Rolando McClain, LB, 6-3, 254, Alabama, With tackles Trent Williams and Russell Okung off the board, the Raiders made McClain the highest selected linebacker in franchise history. - by The Sports Xchange
