Mayock: Raiders will draft Lane Johnson or Sharrif Floyd with the third pick

According to, Mike Mayock of the NFL Network believes the Oakland Raiders will draft either left tackle Lane Johnson or defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd with the third overall pick.

NFL Network’s Mike Mayock predicted on Path to the Draft that the Raiders will either select Oklahoma LT Lane Johnson or Florida DT Sharrif Floyd at the No. 3 overall pick.

Mayock is convinced Luke Joeckel and Eric Fisher will go 1-2. Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie’s roster is the least talented in football, so he’ll stick to his board and draft the best left. If that’s Johnson, he’ll be the pick regardless of the fact that he’d play right tackle in Oakland. If that’s Floyd, he’ll fit an immediate need. We also wouldn’t rule out Oakland selecting Star Lotulelei.
The Raiders have so many pressing needs.  Both Johnson and Floyd would make sense for them.
