I'm just praying that Al isn't owner when the draft roles around.At this point I just don't have a clue what the situation will be.It doesn't look like Cable will be around so getting a guy like Andre Smith sounds great.

Of course when your defense is ranked in the bottom five of the league it logically hasn't held its own so to speak but as you pointed out they've played the third most snaps in the league and I do see glimpses of reason for some optimism at the very least. To counter that, offensively there is none whatsoever to speak of. Whether that comes down to coaching or not I do not know.

I do back the glorified 'take the best player available' approach especially due to our franchise's position / history however it is too vague and sometimes can hurt you moreso than help you in the long run if you continually wish to ignore the same glaring needs.

What is a bigger need DE,DT or WR? Because is really looks like we are going OT in the first round (hopefully).

Also how many draft picks do we have?

Has to be WR. Even on the rare occasions that the QB has time he just holds the ball forever waiting for a receiver to get open. I like Lafells in the second round even though he has a case of the droppies.

True but in the last game we got destroyed last game on the run. Sands is a bust. So a DT is also a big possibility if some1 drops.

Also why do u still have the Randy Moss sig?

If you subtract that 69 yard td he has 81 rushing yards. I wouldn't mind taking a DT if BJ Raji is there. I played against him in high school. Our offense is so damn bad i would rather have a WR though.

RAIDERS BIG BOARD should look like this IMO....

1. Andre Davis- LT
2. Michael Crabtree- WR
3. Michael Oher-LT
4. Michael Johnson- DE
5. Rey Mauluaga- MLB/OLB

They can look to get a DE or WR in round 2 if need be. In the mid rounds they need to get DT's and LB's.

Getting a bookend LT is a key this year. They just better make sure he has LONG arms and good feet. They don't want to make the same mistake twice like they did with Gallery. Gallery has aligator arms and they should have saw that during scouting. LT's need to have long arms and good feet. Gallery has played very well the past two years as his more natural position at LG though.

Just for fun....

1. Lions - Andre Smith
2. Bengals - Michael Oher
3. Chiefs - Brian Orakpo
4. Rams -Matthew Stafford
5. Seahawks - Michael Crabtree

Raiders
Round 1 - Eugene Monroe - LT
Its extremely important to get this LT problem fixed.

Round 2 - Percy Harvin - WR
Might have to trade back in the 1st if AL wants him and I think he will after missing out on Desean Jackson and Eddie Royal (trade bait could be Huff,Burgess,Bush)

Round 3 - Pannel Egboh - DE
I don't see Burgess coming back and we need more depth on the D-line.

4,6,7 should probably be more depth for the O-line and D-line.

Rd1: Best OT available. Crabtree won't help. Another CB, regardless of what Nnamdi does, would be foolish and won't help at all. Orakbo would be great, but I think he goes ahead of us. I think Monroe goes ahead of us too, but I'm trying to remain hopeful.

Rd2: Trade back up into Rd1 and take Max Unger. He can play C, G, or RT. That's convenient, seeing as we need all 3.

After that, start taking stabs at WRs, high motor DLs, maybe even another OL.

Can't fix everything in one draft, so it's foolish to try. Focus on the O-line and try to get some sort of return out of the two top 5 busts we took these last two seasons.

What do you guys think if we got Aaron Curry in the first round and an OT in rounds 2 and 3 possibly. Ive just been thinking if the Raiders draft something besides OT or WR in the first round. They should go to free agency for a WR. So

RD 1 - Aaron Curry - OLB - Wake Forest or Malcolm Jenkins - CB - Ohio St.
RD 2 - Phil Loadholt - OT - Oklahoma
RD 3 - Alex Boone - OT - Ohio St.

Why on earth would we draft an OLB in the first round? Then we'd have 3 awesome LB's but it wouldn't matter because our DL would still suck.

imo curry won be there at 7, so we should draft a OL, like Oher or Monroe.

I still pass on Curry even if he is there, in the big picture he would become a useless asset for us. Only scenario I pass on one of the elite tackles is if Crabtree is still avaiable, but I don't foresee that happening. I don't think he makes it out of the top 5, to be honest.

I dunno about Loadholt if we're still zone blocking, but I could get behind this concept. Curry would be one of those BPA picks we hear so much about, but never actually take.

He'd be the only guy on our defense who could shed a block, so that would be a nice change.

Still, I'm hoping that Hakeem Nicks fudges his 40 yard dash and is sitting there when we pick in Rd2. We'd just have to hope the old man has dozed off by then.

So im thinking the first three rounds would look good like this...

RD 1 - Eugene Monroe - OT - Virginia
RD 2 - Hakeem Nicks - WR - North Carolina
RD 3 - Ron Brace - DT - Boston College
RD 4 - Marcus Freeman - OLB - Ohio St.

Guys, he said that if we drafted Curry, we'd have three awesome linebackers. Which is correct, depending on your feeling about Morrison.

I'm not as impressed with Morrison as probably are other Raider fans, but I think we would still have a solid trio by adding Curry. Obviously that would not do much to solving our team's real problems so I don't think it should be considered all that much. It is better than reaching on someone like Maclin or even Harvin for that matter though.

You didn't say "good". You said "awesome".

Morrison as Howard are middle of the road 'backers at best right now. Nothing at all special about Morrison, and Howard's speed can only do so much. Alston is a STer playing LB.

None can shed blocks. None show discipline. None have the ability to tattoo anyone.

Morrison whiffs 2-3 tackles every game. He's embarrassing. There are games where he looks like Stuart Schwiegert wearing a LB's jersey. He's also not very good in man coverage.


Our LBs get no help at all from our trash D-line, and they're not coached especially well. Al's approach to defense is nonsensical garbage. But even on an actual NFL defense, Morrison is merely average. Howard might make it as a starter, but Morrison looks like a reserve to me.

Well, I would have to disagree with you there. I like them both, a lot. To say that they are both middle of the road 'backers is laughable. They are two of the better young, talented linebackers around IMO. I'll admit that Morrison misses his fair share of tackles, but I think if we had a half competent d-line and a d-coordinator that knew how to run a 4-3 our LB's would be in a much better position to make plays.
