The Oakland Raiders signed their top draft pick, offensive lineman Tony Bergstrom, the team announced Saturday. Bergstrom was taken by the Raiders in the third round at No. 95 overall. They did not have draft picks in the first two rounds this year. He is the fifth of six Raiders draft choices to be signed under first-year general manager Reggie McKenzie. Bergstrom, who is 6-foot-5 and 310 pounds, played four years at Utah. He started 38 of 48 games at right tackle. Bergstrom was named to the All-Pac 12 first team after starting 12 games his senior year. He was on the preseason watch lists for the Outland Trophy and Lowe's Senior CLASS Award while grading a career-best 85 percent for blocking consistency. Bergstrom started 13 games and was named second-team All-Mountain West Conference his junior year.

The Oakland Raiders signed third-round draft pick Tony Bergstrom on Saturday, two days before the team holds its first practice of training camp.

As seen on Bleacher Report.

The Oakland Raiders' already thin wide receiver group was dealt another blow with Jacoby Ford expected to miss time because of a sprained left foot.
Ford underwent an MRI on Saturday, a day after leaving Oakland's 31-24 preseason loss to the Arizona Cardinals in the first quarter.

It is no secret that the Oakland Raiders have some question marks heading into the 2012 season.
A “W” on the schedule following at least the majority of these five games will be crucial if the Raiders' hope to make the postseason.

The Oakland Raiders brought in an undrafted free agent named Conroy Black. Could he be the next Nnamdi Asomugha? Conroy Black and Nnamdi Asomugha share a lot in common that would have most begin to see the comparison.
