Chiefs take Jackson


Kansas City’s selection of LSU defensive lineman Tyson Jackson rekindled the possibility that either Eugene Monroe or Andre Smith could fall to No. 7, which would present the Raiders with a pleasant dilemma.

Do you take a body guard for JaMarcus Russell, or a weapon in the passing game?

Unless, of course, you’re thinking about stopping the run or trading back.

    Let’s be fair, to compare this James Jett is just wrong. Everyone had Heyward-Bey going in the 1st rnd just NOT that high. I liked Percy Harvin better.

    although, Al did just make the dumbest pick of his life.
    Janikowsi was a smarter move than DHB.

    at least he started the next season.

    And with the 7th pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, the Oakland Raiders make the worst draft pick in the history of the NFL Draft.

    This is no better than giving Javon Walker $10 million per year. It’s the same thing. Maybe worse.

    This essentially kills anything good the Raiders did this off-season.

    The only way this gets better is if we dump the dead wood for a can of soup.

    Now I know how Dolphins fan felt after Ginn’s name was called.

    Al is still dreaming of the Warren Wells and Cliff Branches but the difference betwwen them and DHB is they had very good hands to go with their deep speed and DHB does not.
