BTSC 2011 Community Mock Draft Pick No. 48 -- Oakland Raiders Select Stefan Wisniewski, C/G, Penn State

Just about half way through the second round thanks to Tomlin's Puffy Jacket pick for the Oakland Raiders at No. 47. Still love that screen name more and more each time I see it. Next up: the Jacksonville Jaguars, represented by looong time reader and outstanding community member Flying Polamalus. - Michael B. -


The Raiders are always a difficult team to mock, as you don't know which Al Davis is in the war room. Is it the guy who shocked everyone with the pick of Darrius Heyward-Bey two rounds before he was projected, or the guy who made a great pickup of Rolando Mclain last year? Whatever happens this year, it's sure to be interesting.

Oakland looks like a team on the rise, finishing with a respectable 8-8 record last year. Give them another draft like last years, where they picked up 4 starters, and they'll be in business. However, it's going to be tough without their first round pick this year, which they traded to New England for Richard Seymour. To make things even tougher, only one of their starters on the O-line is under contract for next year depending on how the CBA is resolved. They've also resigned themselves to the fact that they will no longer have Nnamdi Asomugha on the team.

With the 48th pick of the draft, the Oakland Raiders choose Stefan Wisniewski, C/G from Penn State University. Wiz gives the Raiders a player who can fill multiple positions of need, and can start right away. Depending on how Free Agency gets worked out in the CBA, I can see Wiz start at guard, and then slide over to center in a season or two. He has the size (6-3, 313lbs) and strength (30 reps bench) to be able to handle 3-4 nose tackles. He has the fire and tenacity that lends itself well to being a Raider, and in fact his uncle Steve got drafted out of PSU and played guard for Oakland, and is now even an assistant line coach for them.
