Raiders win was costly for their draft stock; Went from 1st to 5th

derekYesterday, the Oakland Raiders beat the San Francisco 49ers and boy was it a tough win for them. When you consider how much the win meant morally it was worth it, but the win from a draft standpoint was crucial.

Current NFL draft order (everybody 2-11), per @ESPNStatsInfo: 1. TB, 2. Tenn, 3. Jax, 4. Jets, 5. Oak. Costly win by the Raiders. #nyj

The Raiders went from 1st pick in the 2015 NFL Draft to the 5th pick. Several teams in front of them will draft a quarterback which is great for the Raiders, because Derek Carr is coming into his own.  If Amari Cooper is there, it would be a huge steal for the Raiders.  Get the best playmaker in the NCAA for your rookie quarterback.
