The Patriots, of course, have reason to follow the Raiders this year because New England holds Oakland's first-round pick.

The Raiders have won 29 games over the last seven years, and have lost at least 11 games in each of those seasons, so there's plenty of reason to believe that selection will be a high one. But Asomugha believes with the offseason the team has had, with additions like Jason Campbell and Rolando McClain coming in, the tide is starting to turn.

"I'm happy with the direction we're going in, I don't think you can be upset about it," Asomugha said. "The way we've done things in the offseason, from the trades and releases and different things, we haven't made huge headlines, but I think we've made just enough progress to look like a team that could be ready to take the division. And through practices and OTAs and minicamps, we look like a team that's building. It's much better than last year."
