NFL draft notes: Clock is ticking...

One rating of one player that leads to one pick can help determine a franchise's fate for years. Just ask the Oakland Raiders, who have finally righted their ship after more than a decade of futility.

Which player will the Raiders take at No. 24? Here are the final projected picks from Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay, plus the players Louis Riddick and NFL Nation would select: Kiper/McShay/Riddick – Kevin King, CB, Washington; NFL Nation – Zach Cunningham, ILB, Vanderbilt

So, yeah, Marshawn Lynch has No. 24, as seen in this screen grab from Raiders.com. Paging Charles Woodson and Willie Brown.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Raiders struggled to contain big plays last season in the passing game. Look for them to address the back end of their defense early and often in this week's draft.

So, um, Marshawn Lynch wore his new Raiders helmet as he left the team compound on Wednesday, as seen on Raiders.com, after being acquired in a trade from Seattle. And coming out of retirement, too.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

Marshawn Lynch coming home to Oakland to play for the Raiders does more than address a need at running back; it also serves as an olive branch, of sorts, for Oakland fans who feel burned by the team's pending relocation to Las Vegas. Hard to imagine Lynch, who just turned 31, playing for the Las Vegas Raiders, though, as it's a reported two-year deal and Raiders owner Mark Davis does not plan on going to Southern Nevada until 2020.
