    We traded Washington to Baltimore for there 4th rounder this year (125). But i still dont like the pick.

    We could have gone Dline with that pick then Oline with the later 4th rounder.

    Heres links to the trade

      so far this draft sucks.Our biggest needs coming into this offseason were LT,NT,and RDE.And we havent done anything so far to make those positions better.They've actually managed to get worse.

            Im just glad Al hasnt wasted another pick on a RB.I expected him to forget he picked Dmac.

                    You guys are being too critical...

                    I agree, we shouldn't have picked a CB with that pick: we definitely have significantly more pressing needs. However, I think Branch has a lot of potential, particularly when we have Hall and Asomougha to take care of the receivers who pose major threats to us. Branch is big and physical, but he's also one of the fastest CBs in the draft. I think he could be great in nickel and dime packages... However I do agree I'd rather have taken a D-line.

                    As for Shields, I like this guy a lot. Who cares if he can't jump as high as most other WRs? He has good fundamentals and his size and speed are more than adequate. Although I expect he won't get much PT as long as Walker, Carter, and Curry are around. (Not to mention some of those other young guys like Higgins...)

                    While I think we could have taken guys to fill needs, I like both of these guys and think they have the talent to be getting regular PT.

                      Now we decide to take a DE in the 6th round. Hes purely a pass rusher. Under 260lbs but runs a 4.56 40. I expect a special teamer and might get some time on pass rush situations

                        Pretty much sums up my feelings right here. McFadden should be exciting to watch but the rest of the picks make no sense at all.

                            I do not see how the Raiders managed to get worse. They traded Fabian Washington away, ok. But he doesn't effect the LT, the NT or RDE spots.

                            Oldie but a goodie.

                              I wonder if Tyvon will be a returner for us...

                                Arman Shields is just the type of receiver we need. Someone who can work the middle of the field and great for YAC. I believe he compliments our other receivers fairly well.
