article imageNFL Trade Rumors: Oakland Raiders looking to deal for top pick?

By Larry Seely     Feb 3, 2014 in Sports
Oakland - CBS Sports has reported that the Houston Texans could make a deal, trading away their number one overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, hoping to still land a quarterback later in the first round, but also pickup an additional pick later in the draft.
Ryan Hamilton of Gather Sports has reported that several teams, including the Oakland Raiders could make a switch with Houston. Several reports have the Silver and Black ready to move forward with another signal caller and making a move for the top selection would allow Oakland to land the player they covet most.
St Louis made a similar move two years ago, trading with Washington and allowing the Redskins to take Robert Griffin. Houston is hoping that another NFL team is willing to make the same trade, possibly landing them a second round pick in 2014 or another first round pick in 2015.
If the Raiders do decide to move forward without Terrelle Pryor at quarterback, look for General Manager Reggie McKenzie to take a long look at former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel. The Texas A&M product is the most dynamic signal caller in the draft and despite reports of off-field problems, he could become the face of the franchise and a quarterback the Raiders could rebuild around.
