It's a good move because Chris Long won't be there at four, Gholston wouldn't help Oakland a whole lot this year, and there are going to be few other chances to bolster the most barren defensive position on the team.
Solid signing. We missed out on Kevin Carter so we got the next best thing on the market I suppose. No chance we were gonna head into the season with Jay Richardson and Derrick Burgess and not much else. This seems to be lining up perfectly for the selection of McFadden if we don't happen to move down.

Apparently San Diego was interested in Jordan.Best to cut him right before the season begins.
Good call, he'd be absolutely perfect for SD. I think a number of other teams would give him a look, I've always liked him but obviously the durability issues crop up every season if he gets a full workload.
Pugnacity, testosterone, truculence, and belligerence.
Kalimba had 3 sacks last year. 2 of them came against the Raiders. Kalimba wasn't the starter after Week 3 last year. As the year went on he pretty much was only situational and then a health scratch. I just don't see him being successful even in that role.
Kalimba tried hard he just never got it. Marinelli couldn't do it so I doubt the Raiders D-line coach can either.
