Five players the Raiders should consider

with the No. 5 pick in the draft

Greg Robinson

Offensive tackle, Auburn

• Height/weight: 6-foot-5, 332 pounds

• Comment: He is regarded as a potential All-Pro and cornerstone lineman, though he isn’t as polished as other top offensive tackle prospects.

Mike Evans

Wide receiver, Texas A&M

• Height/weight: 6-5, 225

• Comment: Evans is much taller and heavier than Watkins, just not as fast and explosive; considered every bit as solid a prospect as Watkins.

Jadeveon Clowney

Defensive end, South Carolina

• Height/weight: 6-5, 266

• Comment: He has a rare combination of size, speed, strength and playmaking ability; his name surfaces most often in conversations about who will go No. 1 overall.

Johnny Manziel

Quarterback, Texas A&M

• Height/weight: 6-0, 207

• Comment: He lacks ideal height and size for a quarterback, in the eyes of some talent evaluators, but he proved durable, effective and dynamic in college; compared to NFL Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton.

Justin Gilbert

Cornerback, Oklahoma State

• Height/weight: 6-0, 202

• Comment: He is fast, has decent size for a cornerback and is versatile. He is the consensus top cornerback in the draft and has the ability to be a team’s No. 1 cornerback and succeed in any coverage.
