I gotta say the raiders are having a great draft

    I know we all hate the raiders here and have a tendency to trash their every move and so on and so forth but I personally believe they are having an incredible draft.

    Say what you want about the Russell pick but they did what they had to in landing their franchise QB, and that's exactly what he'll be...

    They got the guy that was believed the be the best TE in the nation all season until Olsen ran fast at the combine in Zach Miller...

    They got a guy with their thrid that two years ago was projected higher than gaines adams as a top three pick in Quentin Moses...

    Johnie Lee-Higgins is fast, very fast, we'll see if that works out for him...

    and they just picked up Michael Bush with their fourth, once again, I believe an excellent pick, would have gone top ten if he hadn't been injured and Brees's Doc is saying he is 99% now...

    Like i said, i know we all like to talk **** about the raiders but i think theyve had a great draft and are building a powerful team, as soon as their o-line gels.

    They must have locked Uncle Al in the back room because I agree although they still need to address the o-line. They won't stay down forever and it will be fun watching Rivers and Russell go at it in the future. I think they'll finish higher than the Chiefs in the division next year.

    Especially getting rid of Moss, adding McCown and Williams and their draft.

    The only positive is Mario Henderson is their only OL this year so far

    They didn't fix the biggest hole they have and that's the best thing you could ask for

    yes, they're having a good draft but remember...
    they still are under control of Al Davis = no chance

    Every year, teams who pick at the top of every round are lauded for their great picks, and yet it seems that there are certain teams that are back at the top year after year--Cle, Det, Oak.

    The Turds appear to have addressed some needs and gotten some good football players. But they were picking first for a reason.

    The Raiders are 1 good offensive draft away from being a..........5 win team. LOL

    No seriously. They already have a good D, I dont like seeing them do this well in the draft.

    No. They barely addressed their greatest need, O Line, and they passed on the best player in the draft.

    Dude - FUC THE RAIDERS

    As far as their O-Line jelling ? Are you serious ? I do not see Gallery jelling or anyone on that line jelling and short of blowing out the entire line, they will suck assss until the cows come home.

    Why would I be calling you out?

    I was talking to the threadstarter.

    And you can drive to El Centro as much as you want. Good luck finding me there since I live in CHula Vista.

    Hard not to when your picking at the top of every round. Only way to phuck that up is if you draft badly .....like Beathard did. Just a matter of if they picked the right guys. Im not high on Higgins, but Bush could be great if his leg heals 100%

    Russell could be great if he applys himself. He will be a big key to their success.

    It wasn't so long ago that we had the #1 pick. I agree with the general consensus around here that the while the Raiders had a very good draft, they still didn't address a huge need, their oline. Besides QB, I think it was their biggest need.

    Still, they are now a better team than they were before this weekend. If they find a patch together the oline into something decent, they could be a real threat in a few years.
