Raiders: Draft plugin, surprise and. . . what?

--- NFLDraftScout.com ---

PLUG AND PLAY

P Johnny Townsend: The Florida punter taken in the fifth round, steps right in as the replacement for Marquette King. Has experience as a holder, but will have to switch sides for left-footed kicker Giorgio Tavecchio.

WILL SURPRISE

DT Maurice Hurst: He was considered by many to be the best penetrating defensive tackle on the board. Many teams may rue the day they took him off the draft board for a heart issue he's played with throughout his college career.

WHAT THE HELL?

CB Nick Nelson: Yes, the Raiders needed another cornerback. But they used their fourth-round pick on Nelson, who had some decent numbers but didn't intercept a pass at Wisconsin. Oh, and he's got a bum knee.
