The Oakland Raiders once again found themselves at the bottom of the AFC West with and 0-6 divisional record and finishing the season 4-12 overall.Here is the rookie class the Raiders have put together entering another rebuilding season in the bay city.Oakland Raiders 2013 Rookie ClassDraft Picks1st Round: D.J. Hayden - Cornerback2nd Round: Menelik Watson - Offensive Tackle 3rd Round: Sio Moore - Outside Linebacker4th Round: Tyler Wilson - Quarterback6th Round: Nick Kasa - Tight End6th Round: Latavius Murray - Running Back6th Round: Stacy McGee - Defensive Tackle7th Round: Brice Butler - Wide Receiver7th Round: David Bass - Defensive End Undrafted Rookie Free AgentsBilly Boyko – LinebackerAdrian Bushell – Defensive BackBobby Cowan – PunterDeveric Gallington – CenterShelton Johnson – SafetyBrian Leonhardt – Tight EndLamar Mady – GuardSam McGuffie – Wide ReceiverKyle Padron – QuarterbackAdam Steiner – Long SnapperKurt Taufa'asau – Defensive TackleConner Vernon – Wide Receiver John Wetzel – TackleDeonte Williams – Running BackIt's amazing that even with the great Al Davis watching football with the rest of the football gods the Raiders continue to pick the most questionable players in the draft.The Raiders once again have lived up to their legendary draft status and put together a rookie class Davis would put his stamp of approval on.The Raiders' biggest question this offseason is who is going to play quarterback since Carson Palmer is playing in the retirement center in the desert with the Arizona Cardinals instead of the Black Hole in Oakland.Matt Flynn and Terrelle “Just Play Me” Pryor looked like they were going to fight it out for the job, but may have lost it before training camp even starts with the addition of Tyler Wilson.Even though Wilson is a rookie, his skills are suited more for the offense the Raiders are trying to run with the speed at receiver they have. Plus running back Darren McFadden is a fellow Razorback and it is critical to keep him happy and healthy.The Raiders' second focus has been addressing their 28th ranked running game and putting blockers in front of McFadden to help keep him healthy this coming season. Deveric Gallington, John Wetzel, and Menelik Watson should give this line a huge boost of young energy. Gallington should find himself as an every-down player since he was an “Iron Man” at Texas Tech starting 38 consecutive games on the line.The biggest addition the Raiders have made this offseason is All-Pro Super Bowl champion defensive back, Charles Woodson, back to their roster. Now with Woodson running things by the bay on defense they should be fine despite ranking in the middle of the pack last season.Even if Woodson is not playing at his prime level anymore his leadership alone is something these young guys need in the development of their careers. D.J. Hayden should consider it a blessing to have Woodson in camp to teach him the ropes of a NFL defensive back.
