Possible Marshawn Lynch trade might have draft deadline, report says

If the Raiders can't secure Lynch by the draft, they make have to select someone else and move on.

Marshawn Lynch to the Raiders appeared to be a sure thing. Now, it might not happen at all.

The Raiders and Seahawks could have a draft deadline in place to get a proposed Lynch deal done, according to NFL.com.

If there's no deal in place before then, the Raiders could use the draft to fill their need at running back, which is considered to be a deep class.

It makes sense. Oakland desperately needs a running back after losing free agentLatavius Murray to the Vikings.

There are few details on what the Seahawks' asking price might be, or what the Raiders would be willing to trade.

Whether or not the Raiders select a power running back during the draft could indicate Lynch's chances of joining their team before the regular season starts.
