I see no reason why the Raiders couldn't craft the WCO around Russell's skill set. Knapp did it (rather unsuccessfully) with Vick, but Childress and Reid did well with a young McNabb in the WCO. I can see Knapp borrowing a lot from the Eagles in 2000-2002 to help develop Russell. Of course, the Eagles OLine was always pretty good in the first place.
There is no guarantee the Raiders will go OLine at #33. It is possible they could trade back a little and still get an Edwards or a Drew Stanton in the early-mid second. Khalil is getting valued very differently by different teams. He could tumble, but I think he will be a quality player.
Very true. I feel like the Eagles will get him if he really falls into the 5th. Andy Reid has a soft spot for fellow Mormons. I'm not saying he will fall that far, but if he does, look for the Eagles to snag him.
