    They do this with a bunch of NFL teams, including the Chargers. But this one is classic:

    Fan response by Mike was golden:
    Mike:

    My brother, Dad, and I, all huge Raiders fans, like to play this game. It's called "Let's look at who we could have drafted in the first round". Now, hindsight is 20/20 and all that, and I know every fan base can do the same thing, so we take it to the next level by looking at the very next pick, which I will now share with you (first name is the raiders pick, second name is the very next pick). Let's start with 2002, the last winning season:

    2002: Napoleon Harris, Ed Reed

    2003: Nnamdi Asomugha and Tyler Brayton, Eric Steinbach (oak had back to back picks b/c of Gruden trade, yay!)

    2004: Robert Gallery, Larry Fitzgerald

    2005: Fabian Washington, Aaron Rodgers

    2006: Michael Huff, Donte Whitner

    2007: JaMarcus Russell, Calvin Johnson

    2008: Darren McFadden, Glenn Dorsey

    2009: Darrius Heyward-Bey, Eugene Monroe

    2010: Rolando McClain, CJ Spiller

    2011: Pick traded for the walking personal foul Richard Seymour (Pats selected Nate Solder with pick, following pick was Corey Liuget)

    2012: Pick traded for Carson Palmer (Cincy selected Dre Kirkpatrick with pick, following pick was Melvin Ingram)

    2013: DJ Hayden and his exploding heart (this season it's now his exploding foot), Sheldon Richardson

    2014: Khalil Mack, Jake Matthews. I feel bad that Khalil's promising career is going to bust, but congrats to Atlanta on getting who will undoubtedly become a HOF LT.

    That was fun....also, a lot of our fans think Terrell Pryor was the future and will take Russell Wilson's job in Seattle.
