Top Five Raider-Ass first round draft pick possibilities

The Oakland Raiders have always been known for doing things their own way. Legendary former owner Al Davis truly walked to a beat of his own drum and often went out of his way to show the rest of the NFL that he could win doing things his way rather than following the pack.
