Raiders could target guard on day 3 of draft

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Raiders could look for their starting right guard on day three of the NFL draft.

After filling holes at wide receiver, defensive end and tight end on the first two days, the Raiders still could use a guard in the final four rounds of the draft on Saturday.

The Raiders have picks in all four rounds Saturday. Oakland has moved last year's starting right guard, Austin Howard, to tackle this season. Khalif Barnes and Matt McCants are getting looks at right guard but the team might want a longer-term solution.

Oakland took receiver Amari Cooper in the first round, defensive end Mario Edwards Jr. in the second round and tight end Clive Walford in round three.
