ESPN’s Chris Mortensen continues his coverage of the draft rumor mill by reporting that the Oakland Raiders are looking to trade into the first-round with the hopes of landing Colorado CB Jimmy Smith.

Drafting Smith would allow them to move on from Nnamdi Asomugha who is likely sign else where once free agency is finally underway. Smith’s draft stock has been up and down mainly because of character concerns but his talent remains unquestioned. The Raiders have been known to take cases on players that have a lot of talent and ability so the move makes some sense but it will be interesting to what they’d have to give up to land him.
