Czar's team-by-team NFL Draft grades

Oakland Raiders

This was an incomplete draft because their first pick wasn't until late in the third round. Fans can partially blame last year's Carson Palmer trade for that. First pick Tony Bergstrom played tackle at Utah, but figures to move to guard for the Raiders. The best thing about Bergstrom is that he's a nasty player, an Oakland prerequisite. ... Penn State defensive end Jake Crawford is a developmental player and most of the late picks appear to be special teams players only. ... One interesting choice was Arizona receiver Juron Criner, a 6-foot-3, 224-pounder who is more of a possession type than a burner. Criner has the hands to force his way onto the field. ... In order to sell tickets, the Raiders have initiated a program that would also help the Oakland school district financially. Now, there's a win-win all the way around. Grade: D
