Five players who could become Raiders Thursday with the No. 5 pick in the draft assuming they don't trade down for additional picks:

Greg Robinson

Offensive tackle, Auburn

Height/weight: 6-foot-5/332 pounds

Comment: He is regarded as a potential All-Pro player and cornerstone lineman, though he isn't as polished as other top OT prospects

Mike Evans

Wide receiver, Texas A&M

Height/weight: 6-foot-5/225 pounds

Comment: Evans is much taller and heavier than Watkins, just not as fast and explosive; considered every bit as solid a prospect as Watkins

Jadeveon Clowney

Defensive end, South Carolina

Height/weight: 6-foot-5/266 pounds

Comment: He has a rare combination of size, speed, strength and playmaking ability; his name is the one that surfaces most often in conversations about who will go No. 1 overall

Johnny Manziel

Quarterback, Texas A&M

Height/weight: 6-foot/207 pounds

Comment: He lacks ideal height and size for a quarterback, in the eyes of some talent evaluators, but he proved durable, effective and dynamic in college; compared to NFL Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton

Justin Gilbert

Cornerback, Oklahoma State

Height/weight: 6-foot/202 pounds

Comment: He is fast, has decent size for a cornerback and is versatile; he is the consensus top cornerback in the draft and has the ability to be a No. 1 cornerback and succeed in any coverage
