    1 21 Reggie Nelson
    Good rookie season, fell off the face of a cliff after that. Decent starter in CIN now.

    2 48 Justin Durant
    Solid player, albeit inconsistent and injury prone. Starter in Detroit last year, I believe.

    3 79 Mike Walker
    Decent player, glass knees. Was a solid #2 before his latest knee injuries sapped the last bit of explosion he had left.

    4 101 Adam Podlesh
    Good punter who they let walk because they wanted a "directional kicker."

    4 113 Brian Smith
    Damaged goods. Never played a down in the NFL because of a hip injury he sustained in college.

    5 149 Uche Nwaneri

    Has turned into the best player on the offensive line.

    5 150 Josh Gattis
    Out of NFL.

    5 166 Derek Landri
    Decent rotational DT. In Philly now.

    7 229 John Broussard
    Out of NFL.

    MMMMMMMMMMMMMMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHHHHH

      How does Mike Z seem to get the best out of all these leftover players?

      The Bengals D should be trash considering how some of the players played with their previous teams, but then they meet Zimmer and he turns **** into metal.

      How is this guy not a HC yet?

        Our terrible 2007 was acceptable based on the pure gold we got out of 06. Cutler, Marshall, Scheffler, Dumervil. We then flipped everyone except Doom for absolute crap.

            Jarvis Moss and Tim Crowder=not acceptable.

            Marcus Thomas has found a way to survive 2 coaching changes, 5 defensive coordinators, a change to the 3-4 and back to the 4-3, while being a mediocre at best player. I don't understand the NFL sometimes.

            Ryan Harris was the only guy who did something good for us. One of the top RT's in the league his only year starting, then injuries took over his career.

            So sad.

            2006 draft was GREAT... freaking McD.

I felt like everybody should have known that Joe Thomas, Calvin Johnson, Adrian Peterson, Patrick Willis, Gaines Adams, and LaRon Landry were going to be instant Pro Bowlers. Gaines wasn't, but those were some talented prototype kind of guys. I understood why a team might draft Jamarcus Russell in the top 10, but never in a million years over players like those. They might as well have been Orlando Pace, Randy Moss, Jim Brown, Ray Lewis, Michael Strahan, and Ronnie Lott.

                      Throw in the fact that they were the unquestioned guys at the top of their positions heading into the year and then performed well and stayed at the top. Plus put up insane combine numbers and blew every doubt out of the water.
                      I don't think you understand how pathetic the Raider offense was in 2006. The team scored more than 14 points 4 times in the entire season. They had a high-water mark of 22 points in a game and that was against the lowly Arizona Cardinals. The team threw for a total of 7 TD passes in the entire season. The three QBs who attempted passes for the team were Andrew Walter, Aaron Brooks and Marques Tuiasosopo.

                      The team QB rating was 56.2 and no QB had a rating higher than 62.0. no Qb had a TD:INT ratio better matching 1:2. Yeah. You read that right.

                      The team scored a total of 168 points in the entire season. Only 4 other teams have scored less than 170 points in a 16 game season. They put up just over 10 points per game, meaning it was like they played the 2000 Baltimore Ravens every week for the entire season.

                      I will say again, this team played Andrew Walter, Aaron Brooks and Marques Tuiasosopo at QB in the 2006 season. They needed a QB in the 2007 draft.

                      That is why they selected Jamarcus Russell.

                          Also, say what you want about Russell's off-field concerns, but on the field, the dude could play. People like to talk about him like he was Kyle Boller, an arm and nothing else. But he had great pocket mobility and accuracy to go along with the arm. He should have been a better Ben Roethlisberger. On the field, a great QB prospect.

                            It was still a poor decision in hindsight and realtime. The Raiders had never shown the patience to develop a QB, especially one with poor work habits (which we knew after the combine that year). They hit on Tim Brown/Marcus Allen type college superstars at the skill positions which is why they should have gone Calvin or Adrian.

                            I was actually surprised when Al pulled the trigger on Russell.

                              I have no shame in admitting I liked Jamarcus.

                                I wouldn't say great. Controversial. Great if you fall in love with arm strength. Not so great if you value football intelligence and quick processing of info, and work ethic... many predicted Russell would be a bust.
