Kudos to Oakland for spending three of the first four picks on offensive linemen. They’ll need them. Mims is a hot name at OT and worth the trade-up, even for a team missing their first. Rackley and Wisniewski can both start inside right away. Burton is no Asomugha, but some would consider him a steal in the 4th (I’m not one of them). Why Saunders in the 6th when you have Zach Miller likely for the long haul? Why not a developmental QB or more help in the secondary? I like Mohamed, not sure if he has the closing speed and chase game to help on the weak-side where it is needed most – still a fine use of a 7th. Effective draft with one glaring hole of no QB drafted.
