2010 2012

The 2011 Oakland Raiders season is the franchise's 42nd season in the National Football League and the 52nd overall. 2011 also marks the final season under the ownership of Al Davis, who died on October 8, 2011. The Raiders hope to improve on their 8–8 record from 2010, in which the team achieved its first non-losing season since 2002, but missed the playoffs for the eighth consecutive season. On January 4, 2011, it was announced that head coach Tom Cable's contract would not be extended. Cable would be replaced by Hue Jackson, the team's former offensive coordinator. The Raiders traded their first round selection in the 2011 NFL Draft (17th overall) to the New England Patriots.

2011 draft boardEdit
