There’s chatter in league circles that a surprise pick could be made in the top ten of the 2009 draft.
Of course, that could be said in any given year.
But one source connected to one of the teams picking in the top ten thinks that an eyebrow-raising pick could be coming, given the names that currently are expected to be called at the top of the draft.
We’ve got a weird feeling that the surprise could be Percy Harvin to the Raiders at No. 7.
Remember this — 31 teams can scream “no way in hell” from the tops of their lung. But if only one says “yes” in round one, then the player is a first-round pick.
Harvin fits the Raiders profile.
Receiver. Fast. Potentially explosive. Perceived bad boy.
But NFLN’s Mike Mayock recently told Dan Patrick that Harvin has top-ten talent. And one team that possibly wouldn’t care about a little weed and/or a lot of attitude is the Raiders.
I have two (with no thought behind them):
-Jeremy Maclin at 6 to CIN.
-Patriots moving up to 9 to take Andre Smith.
Throw out your ideas.
