  • hopefully with Mike Williams coming in this means Moss is gone for good.

    • Kalil is slipping big time and I don't think any of the teams coming up need a center. Do you think he could fall to the 3rd, and if so, should we select him? I know we already have a C in Newberry, but we only have him for 1yr and he is injury prone.

      EDIT:
      Nevermind, Carolina took him.

        I dont think there is any way that Kalil falls past us now that Crowder got taken by the Broncos.

        • Yah I think even if we need to trade up to get him we should go for Kalil. I've said it before, but he is the type of guy you draft and than you don't have to worry about the position for 8 years.

            • Quentin Moses, didn't see that one coming but he could be a good pass rusher opposite Burgess.

              • Hmm Moses. We needed a DE. I think that Brayton is going to beef up and stay at DT.

                  • this draft could get any better IMO. Yes i wanted CJ more but now seeing that we got Mike Williams with Russell, a fast DE that will be very productive since burgess will be double teams, plus a TE that can do it all.

                    also what are we gonna do with the next 2 picks? i think we should go DT,RB or oline in the 2 picks.

                    • I don't think we should go after a RB, there's really no need this year.

                      • WTF, Johnny Lee Higgins? Did we really need another WR??

                          • I have to say i am very happy with the Raiders first day.

                            Although Calvin was intriguing, Russell should be a stud. It's rare to find a QB with that kind of throw power, throw accuracy, and a fast release to go along with that kind of body. Boom or Bust, this was the pick Al Davis had to make.
                            I didnt really like the Miller pick at first, but i am warming up to him. (especially since our 2nd was him, Mike Williams, and McCown.) Hopefully he can improve his blocking because ive heard his hands are sensational.
                            I am extremely happy with Moses! I was really hoping we could get one of the Georgia Ends, and the addition of the Junior yr Moses could mean the world to our pass rush and take some pressure off of Burgess!
                            Mario Henderson seems like a great pick as well and was worth the risk for a guy with his size and athleticism.
                            Higgins was higher than most of the receivers chosen ahead of him on my list, but this pick seems to be a bit mysterious with so many receivers on the roster?

                            Overall, the Raiders addressed needs and got some great value so i would give their draft a B+/A- for day 1.

                                ^^Great pick, and I also really like the Quentin Moses pick. With Johnny Lee Higgins and M Williams on the team, Moss is as good as gone.

                                All things considered, and taking into account past draft day blunders, this was a good day. If Moses can revert back to 05 form, he can be a force opposite Burgess, and is, as it stands right now, and immediate upgrade over Tyler Brayton.

                                We also did some wheeling and dealing, and I think we came out on top, especially the extra 4th we got from Arizona, that was later sent to DET for Williams/McCown.

                                So, who do you guys want us to go after with the next pick? Marcus Thomas?
