Q: Numbers down, how much of that the broken leg?

Shaughnessy: I don’t know, I’d say it’s a little bit and you know, I don’t know, I played for four years. I think people like, I established at Wisconsin so you know, things happen, people run other ways.

Q: Know anything about the Raiders and your chances?

Shaughnessy: Well I’m not sure but I talked to Coach Board and he said he wants me to come in and give it a shot, you know, and compete for playing so that’s what I’m going to do, come in and give my hardest.

Q: Long night when not drafted on first day?

Shaughnessy: It wasn’t too bad, you know. I sort of wanted this whole process to be a surprise you know. Obviously, me and my agent talked about certain things I knew I’d be going you know today but you know I really wasn’t too worried.

Q: Who is your agent?

Shaughnessy: Rich Rosa at Eastern Athletic Sports.

Q: Left end or right side?

Shaughnessy: I played both and I played a little tackle in a three-man front technique personnel.

Q: Board give any specifics?

Shaughnessy: Not yet probably a little when I meet him we’ll talk more about that stuff.

Q: Any Raider memories?

Shaughnessy: Growing up, you know, I watched as much football, I never had a favorite team, so I just always watched any team. Obviously, it’s my favorite team now.

Q: Where were you when drafted?

Shaughnessy: I was at home with my parents and friends.

Q: Can you help the run defense, did Board say as much?

    So far, 11 USC draftee’s. And none to the Raiders. Al’s slipping.

    It’s so funny how seriously everyone is taking these conversations, and at the same time we have this kid talking about what everyone knows, and it’s absolutely apparent that nobody knows nothing, which technically means someone knows something, you know?

  • Tommy Trojan25

    The last USC player to the Raiders was Darnell Bing, drafted the same day we traded for Mike Williams. I think those guys scared Al away, and it’s a shame.
