When I first  wrote to my fellow Oakland Raiders fans about them drafting USC Trojans defensive Williams, the Raiders had the worst record. They looked like they were guaranteed to have the first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft until they decided to win a couple of games. This scared me because the Raiders won’t have the first pick anymore but they’re actually more likely than before to pick him now.

Then of course, we have to throw in the Harbaugh factor as that will make it even more likely that they get him.

To me, for more reasons then one, this is something that has to happen.
