We still have not addressed our need for a run stuffing DT, which we need in our division. After watching the SB, I hope we draft Gholston or C. Long with the 4th and a Red Bryant or Pat Sims in the second.

WR is pretty deep this year, so I hope we address that in the 4th RD.

We have Henderson, Harris, McQ & Green for the OT spots already...

This year's draft is stacked at WR, if we don't sign another WR in the FA market, we should def draft one in the 4th or 5th round.

As for ther O-line situation we'd invested enough money in guys like Green, Harris, Henderson and Gallery. I don't want to draft Jake Long that high. The more I see Gholston, the more I remember we need help at DE postion.

We are in a simular situation as the Vikings last year. We have a good running in Fargas(Taylor for Vikes) . Even though Taylor got a 1,000+ the season before they got AD they still picked him. I think we should also pick a running back (DMAC). It will give us a great 1-2 punch with fargas and DMAC. I mean if Fargas got 1000+ yards last year, just wonder what he and DMAC can do together. The Vikings had Jackson(young qb) starting for them and he made great strides with a great running game behind him, so JaMarcus should too. JaMarcus will also have a star behind him for a long time and wont have the pressure to make all the plays when he could just hand the ball off to 2 good rbs.

Also I like our current situation at WRs and TEs. We will in the next 1-3 years will need to get a star wr from trade or draft since curry and walker arnt getting any younger.

Where were at in the draft, I'd say it would be a safe bet to draft DMAC. I agree with what RaiderNation said, by drafting DMAC it would give our running game a good one two punch.

Where does this leave Michael Bush? I don't think the coaching staff has given up on him just yet. Give him the other 'freak' Gholston.

I think Oakland should get Jake Long
Why?
A: Kansas City wont get him, thats a plus when you can screw a rival over
B: At worst, he'll be better than Gallery

Team has already committed Kelly to play UT so Dorsey would then have to play NT which is a complete waste of his talent.

Chris Long- help out our pass rush and its howies kid
Darren McFadden- great talent that would be hard to pass up
Jake Long- would fill a huge hole that we have had for a long time
Vernon Gholston- will give us a fast pass rusher
Trade Down- hopefully with dallas
Glenn Dorsey- Nice player, since we have Kelly paid to play UT with he be NT?

As much as I hate the idea, I know they are going to take McFadden. Fargas can keep the offense going, he had over 1000 yards in 7 starts. Raiders could really use a WR, but the fact of the matter is there are none worthy of the 4th overall pick in the draft. At number 4, I would rather see Gholston or Dorsey taken to help finish off a defense that could be one of the best in the league, but I doubt Al Davis can do anything coherent with all of that senility in his brain.

I watched every Vikings game last season (I'm from MN) and Jackson was terrible for having the top rushing game behind him. But yes they're team are on the same path, however, as great as AD is I can only wonder where we would be if we actually addressed a real need other than just picking "the best possible player on the board." I wanted Quinn with that pick, but we got AD. Peterson is great, but 6 of our 8 losses were due to Jackson making idiot plays. Sometimes I wonder "what if" and think about how we would have faired with Brady Quinn instead of AD.

The Raiders really like Vernon Gholston a lot, and I am among the crowd who still believes that he would be better in a 4-3 than he would in a 3-4 (kinda stiff to be an OLB in the NFL)....but I have heard from multiple sources that Oakland really like Vern but likes McFadden even more. The question is do they take McFadden who is clearly a superior prospect but doesn't fill a need, or do they fill a need with a guy who is not a top 5 pick type of player but a freak athlete with a lot of upside nonetheless who fills a need. I think they go DMC as of right now until I hear otherwise.

Personally I hoe we pass on McFadden and if Bush doesn't pan out we take Beanie Wells, but I am a Buckeye homer.

Having said that, I want to fill needs but won't complain if we take a possible elite RB in McFadden.

The only complaint I would have if we took DMC is why did we re-sign Fargas? I would still prefer to take one of the DE's, but DMC is just scary.

The difference is that Minnesota had one of the best run defenses in the league.Our run D sucks.
Jackson made great strides with a good running game?Hes a horrible QB.I dont see how he got better.

I like Wells alot to.I think he'll easily turn out to be a better prospect than McFadden.But I hope we arent in position to take him next year.

No doubt, I hope we are .500 at least, and I think they can, but it will of course depend on JaMarcus' development.
