It was yet another disappointing season for the Oakland Raiders, as they ended their season with a pathetic 47-14 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday. This loss would leave the Raiders with a final record of 3-13, rewarding them the fourth overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. Although most fans are not satisfied with the season, there were a couple positives to ponder about.

One of the main positives from this year was Derek Carr having a brilliant season, despite some rough patches throughout the year, but what can you expect from a rookie? In Carr’s first NFL season, he established himself as the franchise quarterback by posting 21 touchdown passes to only 12 interceptions, threw for 3,270 yards with 58.1 completion rating and an overall quarterback rating of 76.6 percent. Carr still has a lot to work on and a lot of growth to go through, but he proved to the fans that he is giving them something to look forward to next season.

Another positive from this season was the impact of Khalil Mack, also a rookie, who posted 75 tackles, four sacks and one forced fumble. Not only did he achieve this, he showed he could pressure the quarterback in the pocket and force them to throw rushed passes.

There was not a lot that went right this season for Oakland, but going into next season, the Raiders will have a lot of young talent with Carr, Mack, Sio Moore, Latavius Murray, Marcel Reece, and their 2015 draft picks. There is also hope that veterans Justin Tuck and Charles Woodson will return as well next season for Oakland.

With this in mind who should the Raiders choose with the fourth pick?

It is clear that the Raiders need help everywhere, but here are the top five choices the Raiders could get in the 2015 Draft.
