The Raiders have plenty of needs. Twenty-four hours ago, they didn’t have a second-round pick.
Via the trade down from No. 3 to No. 12, the Raiders picked up a second-round pick from the Dolphins. They’ve now used it on tackle Menelik Watson.
Watson played college football at Florida State and grew up in England. He’s regarded as a raw talent with real potential.
The Raiders need Watson and others to transform potential into production. Quickly.
