After the San Francisco 49ers took Mike McGlinchey with the ninth overall pick, the Raiders opted to move down from 10. You talk about getting to the second level and pulling.
Oakland selected Kolton Miller, OT, UCLA, and received picks No. 79 (Round 3) and No. 152 (Round 5).
While Reggie McKenzie remained as general manager and was involved heavily in draft preparation, Gruden is the man who now has the final word on picks for Oakland.
