Crabtree among draft’s biggest steals, while Raiders reach … twice

Steals
Eugene Monroe/OT/ Jacksonville/9th selection: The Jaguars desperately wanted to come out of this draft with a stud at the tackle position. It was a godsend when Monroe dropped into their laps on the ninth pick.
Michael Crabtree/WR/San Francisco/10th: The inability to work out prior to the draft and off-the-field questions almost kept Crabtree from being a top-10 choice.
