Several reports mention that the Raiders are being targeted by other teams interested in moving up in the first round of the NFL draft's first round Thursday, so that they can get their hands on Oakand's No. 3 pick.

None of the reports cites named sources and Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie gave no indication Tuesday in a news conference abut whether he wants out of No. 3.

Of course, it makes sense for teams to call the Raiders, who are in dire need of adding a slew of players to a roster in the midst of a major overhaul, and not just one top impact guy.

Teams mentioned as being interested in trading up to No. 3 include the Detroit Lions at No. 5, the Cleveland Browns (No. 6), the Arizona Cardinals (No. 7) and the Miami Dolphins (No. 12).

The Browns and Lions are high on Brigham Young defensive end Ezekiel Ansah. The Cardinals and Dolphins want to make sure they get one of the three offensive tackles expected to go within the top 10 -- Luke Joeckel, Eric Fisher and Lane Johnson.

If the Raiders bite, they surely could recoup a second-round pick, which they are without as a result of the trade for quarterback Carson Palmer in 2011, and possibly more, especially if they get multiple teams vying for the third pick.

McKenzie said he has a pretty good idea of which player the Raiders are going to get at No. 3 if they opt against trading down. He just might be able to get a comparable player at, say, No. 5, No. 6 or No. 7, as well as one or more additional picks in this year's draft.
