Great listen. Tells about the coaching staff, his plans for the draft and more

He says WR at #7 isnt likely. He said he is impressed with JLH and Schillens. Does this mean a OT like Andre Smith or Jason Smith? (hopefully)

God I hope so, I just don't know how much influence Al will let him have on the draft.

IDK. Watching the new conference it seems as if Al is gonna let Cable try and turn things around. Al also said during the news conference he wants to get more powerful on the lines. So a guy like Andre Smith or RJ Raji come to mind when you say powerful

I herd him say the Radiers will make the playoffs this year. I like his attitude and the staff he put together

The thing is that both Davis and Cable mentioned how happy they were with Mario at the end of the season. I don't agree with it, but I don't know if we'll go with either OT or WR in the first round...

I hate to say it, but we might be looking Vontae Davis straight in the eye at #7.

Maybe Andre Smith if he slides in at RT, or Raji if you're looking much into those clues. Jenkins or Davis would be an awful lot to swallow for any Raider fan I'd assume.

:( I would cry with a DB pick in round 1...

I could go either way right now--WR or OT in round 1. Don't break my heart.

Maclin is a nice player but I don't think he is worth the 7th overall pick when we can get a OT and than target a WR in round two, there is a bunch of good looking talent at WR this year.

I can't see us taking Maclin unless we trade down a few spots.....especially considering that Percy Harvin, Hakeem Nicks or Heyward-Bey could possibly fall down to us in the 2nd.

I like Cable...but I also liked Kiffin at one point in time. Hopefully Al can compromise with him on some of the staffing and draft choices. Andre Smith would look really nice in Silver and Black.

This is RaiderNations Raider mock and I am fully behind seeing the Raiders draft turn out like this.......


RD 1 Andre Smith RT(This guy will be great as a RT. Best run blocker in the draft and is decent at pass blocking. Will get a chance at LT is Mario is a bust)

RD 2 Hakeem Nicks WR(I have a good feeling this guy is going to be special. He doesnt have elite speed, but he has everything else.

RD 3 Kyle Moore DE(Big strong DE that can get good pressure and is alright against the run)

RD 4 Terrance Taylor DT( Big strong DT that can come in and replace Terdell Sands)

RD 6 Jasper Brinkley LB(He can play either inside or outside. He big and strong and is an upgrade over Alston)

RD 7 Anthony Parker OG( Good player that will drop because of character issues. Could eventually become our RG )

Fire Cable, he is the worst coach you guys ever hired.

How can you say that right now? Most all of the players wanted him back which is a plus, and he seemed to click with the team. 2 big wins at the end of season, got him this job.

They also loved Lane Kiffin. Cable was horrible at Idaho State. He should never get a pro job. I live around here and I get raiders shoved up my ass all the time. You guys need to rebuild the defense and draft a Olineman.

Cable is one of the best Oline coaches in the NFL. His play calling improved every game when he took over. With a new DC that likes to blitz, I expect our defense to improve. If we draft Raji or Brace to play NT our run defense will improve. We need a DE still some maybe in round 3 or 4 we can address that need.

I bet Cable turns into Al Davis' next failed Hire.
