ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders had a quiet first day of the 2012 NFL Draft, with no pick in the first round.
New general manager Reggie McKenzie even had time to leave the draft room during Thursday night's proceedings to get a glass of lemonade.
This is the second consecutive year in which the Raiders didn't have a first-round pick, having dealt last year's to the New England Patriots for Richard Seymour. Oakland has just five picks in the draft. The first one comes at the end of Friday's third round at 95th overall. That is one of three compensatory picks the Raiders received for losing free agents last summer.
The Raiders also have compensatory picks at the end of the fourth and fifth rounds and their own picks in the fifth and sixth rounds to be used Saturday. Oakland cannot trade any of its compensatory picks.
