Per Adam Schefter on NFLN. No link as of yet.

Joe Thomas a possibility now?

I think Staley at 33 is far more likely. I was kinda expecting this though.

Staley at 33 is the more probable. Oakland needs a ZBS lineman and Staley is pretty much the perfect fit for that.

This is probably the only way he can salvage his career.

Compeltely agree, Gallery in college looked like a sure-fire Hall of Fame lineman. Now I doubt he makes it unless a miracle happens in Oakland and they're offense starts working.

i wouldnt mind thomas now since we announced gallery at rt. only way we get him is a trade down though.

I would still give him a chance at LT, he has too much talent just to be cast to the right side at this point.

He wouldn't be "cast" to the right side. To begin with he as a G in college and should be playing G respectively. So for him to ultimately move to the right side should help him out tremendously.

i wish backus would agree to move to RT, then there would be 99.9% chance that the lions would draft thomas.

Strongest possibility is Staley at #33. Still possible that they take Thomas at #1 though.

Wow. I feel bad for Gallery, maybe people would keep the 'bust' tag off of him if he wouldn't be moved around so much.

Yea, I love Gallery personally and I think the only reason he hasn't been labeled a bust so far is merely because of the freak athlete he is.

I've been trying to get people to look at Thomas as the pick for awhile now. I'd take him with the 1st overall pick. My strategy in Oakland would be to build an O-line starting with the tackles by getting Thomas and moving Gallery to the right side. Once you have an O-line in place you get your franchise QB to play behind them for years to come.

So the Oakland fans just have to be patient with the offense and let them build it right.

Uh...he was a tight end that got moved to tackle in college.

His senior year he played G is what I was refering to. What he played coming out of highschool is pointless.

No he didn't. He played LT every single game from his sophmore year through graduation.

I am 99% sure Gallery did not play OG in college.

another year another position and or scheme, so much for ever becoming comfortable

At least we have a good Oline Coach in Cable.Hopefully he can save Gallery's career.

O-Line is all about coaching. A good O-Line coach can make an average O-Line great. Or a craptastic O-line at least serviceable.

I think his mechanics is all screwed up with all the moving around and coaching changes. I think he would do well if they leave him in one position.

To tell you the truth, I feel very bad for him. He was a stud at Iowa and genuine franchise LT material.

Joe Thomas is definitely a possibility now, but like others say I think Staley in the 2nd would be a better fit

Shiver

Would they really take Thomas though? I mean, he is getting compared to two guys who aren't exactly elite Left Tackles either. As in Jordan Gross and, well, Robert Gallery.

I still don't see the Thomas move at 1. Too many other needs to warrant such a move. If Staley is around early 2nd, then that'll be a strong likelihood, although I wonder if they may wait later, for a guy like Adam Koets or perhaps a Ryan Harris.

And here I was thinking that they would pick up LD for the RT spot.

2003 - - listed as first team left tackle following spring practice . . .- started at left tackle in all 13 games
2002 - - started all 13 games at left tackle
2001 - - started all 12 games at left tackle

doesn't look like he got much time at guard.....

Good for the Raiders. It's a good idea for the future. Maybe that will make Gallery less of a bust.

I really like the move of Gallery to RT. If the Raiders could get Staley at 33 then that'd give them a really solid O-line.

The problem is....he's making LT money. If theyre gonna move him to RT, they better restructure his deal.

Wasn't he working out at college again? Supposedly he was trying to get back in shape. If thats the case, why not give him one last chance at LT?

I guess itís a good move for him since he didnít completely suck at RT, It just sucks he didnít pan out at LT

D-Rod

why would the raiders announce this now, rather than waiting until after the draft. its just smoke-blowing, giving people doubts as to whom they might select. he might be LT, might be RT, this "announcement" means nothing.
