James Jones didn’t expect bad news when Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie called him last week.
UPDATE (10:13 a.m. PT): After sliding back to the No. 124 spot, the Raiders traded back again, this time with the Buccaneers. The Raiders now hold the 128th pick.
ALAMEDA -– The Raiders had trouble finding flaws in receiver Amari Cooper during the draft process. They saw the college tape of Cooper dominating SEC competition at Alabama.
The Raiders currently own the No. 4 overall pick in the NFL draft. That may not be the case through Thursday’s 5 p.m. hour.
By most accounts, Reggie McKenzie hit a home run in last year’s draft.
