A look back at last year’s middle-round draft picks
The Oakland Raiders currently do not hold a draft pick until the 32nd pick of the third round, 95th overall. The Raiders currently hold one third round draft pick, two fourth round draft picks, a fifth round draft pick and a sixth round draft pick. The 95th overall pick, along with the 129th (fourth round) and 168th (fifth round), came by way of the National Football League’s compensatory pick policy.
