Raiders To Announce Some Draft Picks From Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Oakland Raiders president Marc Badain says the team will announce its third-day draft picks from the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign next week.

Badain made the announcement Thursday during a gathering of the public entity overseeing the proposed 65,000-seat stadium the team wants to occupy in Las Vegas.

NFL league owners approved the Raiders relocation last month. Badain says the team has received thousands of $100 deposits for personal seat licenses.
