 ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -A look at how the Oakland Raiders' first-round picks over the last 10 drafts have fared:
2006 - Michael Huff, S, seventh overall: Taken ahead of quarterbacks Matt Leinart and Jay Cutler, Huff started all 16 games as a rookie, but had no sacks, interceptions or fumble recoveries.
2005 - Fabian Washington, CB, 23rd: Oakland traded the No. 7 pick in the deal for Randy Moss, but moved into the first round to get Washington, who has shown improvement each year, but did get picked on at times last season.
2004 - Robert Gallery, OT, second: Considered a can't-miss prospect, Gallery has struggled as the Raiders have shuttled him between left and right tackle and changed offensive line coaches. Oakland hopes new line coach Tom Cable can bring out the best in Gallery, something the team has yet to see.
2003 - Nnamdi Asomugha, CB, 31st: Oakland's best first-round pick in recent years, Asomugha had a breakthrough season in 2006. He was one of the top cover cornerbacks in the league last season and also had eight interceptions.
2003 - Tyler Brayton, DE, 32nd: Has just six sacks in 63 career games at both defensive end and linebacker. Perhaps best known for kneeing Seattle's Jerramy Stevens in the groin at the end of a play in a nationally televised game last season.
2002 - Phillip Buchanon, CB, 17th: A speedster expected to contribute on defense and special teams, Buchanon lasted just three seasons in Oakland before being traded to Houston.
2002 - Napoleon Harris, LB, 23rd: Started 13 games as a rookie as Oakland went to the Super Bowl, but was traded to Minnesota in 2005 for Randy Moss. Lost his starting job with the Vikings and now is in Kansas City.
2001 - Derrick Gibson, S, 28th: Has intercepted just three passes in six seasons and was replaced in the starting lineup last year by Huff. Gibson is not expected back in 2007.
2000 - Sebastian Janikowski, PK, 17th: The first kicker taken in the first round of the draft in 21 years, Janikowski has been a solid pro, but probably not worth a first-round pick. He has a strong leg, but has been inconsistent at times. Seattle took star RB Shaun Alexander two picks later.
1999 - Matt Stinchcomb, OT, 18th: Injured his shoulder as a rookie and never was able to establish himself in the NFL.
1998 - Charles Woodson, CB, fourth: Made three Pro Bowls with the Raiders and was a key part of the 2002 AFC championship team. Injuries held Woodson back and he never quite lived up to the hype he had as a Heisman Trophy winner.
1998 - Mo Collins, OT, 23rd: Oakland traded up to select Collins, who was a solid blocker before injuries cut short his career
1997 - Darrell Russell, DT, second: Made two Pro Bowls with Oakland before his promising career was derailed by drugs. Was out of the NFL by 2003 and died in a car crash in December 2005.
