NFL draft: Here’s the beef
NFL » This year’s draft makes up for lack of glamour with size.

Joeckel may be the top offensive tackle available, but Fisher and Johnson are both expected to go early in the draft. And they’ll probably spend their careers lining up against a slew of players on the defensive side of the ball who could be picked early in the first round, too.

The Oakland Raiders, who pick third, have had their eye on Floyd and Lotulelei, among others, and defensive ends Dion Jordan of Oregon, Ziggy Ansah of BYU and Barkevious Mingo of LSU should have their names called in the first couple hours Thursday night.

Defensive back Dee Milliner is a trendy choice to go in the top 10, and offensive linemen D.J. Fluker and Chance Warmack — Milliner’s teammates from national champion Alabama — also are expected to go early in a draft that is more wide open than any in recent history.

"You can go and ask every scout in the room and you’d probably get a favorite player that differs from the other," Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said. "But that’s the fun part of this job is trying to get all those opinions and come to a common goal to choose one."
