By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, April 26th, 2009 at 10:33 am in Oakland Raiders.

Oregon State linebacker Slade Norris is the Raiders selection in the fourth round, No. 126 overall.

“Needs to get bigger and stronger to stick as a backup,” according to the Pro Football Weekly guide.

Norris is 6-foot-2, 236 pounds. He’s also played some defensive end for the Beavers. Listed as a seventh-round or free agent prospect by Prosportsxchange.

At Oregon State, Norris arrived as a safety, morphed into a situational pass rusher and as a senior started 13 games with 10 sacks and 18.5 tackles for losses. He had 19 career sacks.

    The most critised years past pick since SeaBass (which was deserved) was none other than Namdi Assamoha (bad sp.). It was very similar criticsm as was being said about Mitchell. That is a good sign!

    Now that’s some homerfied bullsh/t right there.

    LOL people got the nerve to defend the first round pick. Shyt is a joke. DHB wont even be the the starter at WR. Cable said he was best route runner of all WR or something? Nuts

    He did mention fargas

    Good point 951, but that may simply be because Fargas is the least exciting skill position player we have. I actually like Rankin enough to justify trading Fargas for a late round pick. I’d love for those carries to go to Bush and McFadden, and if need be, even Rankin.

    Even Brien can see how bad of a pick Darius Gump was.

    Cable says we are going to run the ball and toss the football over their heads, then the espn crew went on about how no other team uses that system anymore since back when players wore leather helmets.

    ———-thats exactly how Tomlim just xplained the Steelers reason for picking M Wallece…to run of the coverage so Ward and the rest of the offense has more manuevering room. believe me it will work in a hundred years, even if just the current regulations/rules/penaltys are in tact then. you know how the “competition-committee” makes sure the points, TDs keep coming…

  • doriangray

    i wonder if al davis drafted the velociraptors when he was an owner in the B.C. football league 2000 years ago ??

  • DMAC

    Hey Al, the least you can do for me is draft Zack Follett.

    I’ve already got my Lechler jersey. I’m about to get my “Darius Gump” jersey tomorrow.

    SnB, what is a “go big or go home” guy?
    =======================================================
    Just that Davis doesn’t really care about risk. If he sees something he just goes for it damn the consequences…that’s all…

    When I look at the draft it was one huge gamble after another…

    I hope it works out

  • Brien the General 510

    Matt Shaunessy? Gotta be kidding me now. The defense will be a joke again and Russell and company better score alot of points. But how can they with no o-line?

  • Dude

    HayesDaze,

    Are the Raiders known for coaching up guys?
    Is the Raider organization a good place for young players to grow and develop into stars?

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    SnB defense, isn’t it Al’s job to get the guy who has the best chance of improving the Raiders? Does an owner with a record as lousy as Al’s really have the room to gamble at this point? Shouldn’t he be focused on building a winning team, and putting his childish pipe dreams aside?

    You know what I say? I say you should go home back to GREENBOW, ALABAMA!

    Shyt is a joke and it wont end.

  • http://www.actionext.com/playlist_57486.html La Milicia Negra

    I assume we will dump all receivers picked by Kiffin just so Al can say how right he was, otherwise i cant understand we drafted two…

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    I think Lance Bass is a “go big or go home” guy, too.

    Brien, I’ve never been to Alabama. Are you high today? Of course you are.

  • South FLA Raider

    PLEASE draft Danell Ellerbe!!!

  • DMAC

  • doriangray

    who …?

  • Brien the General 510

    MR, i may be high…….maybe even drunk……..okay i am drunk but dammit Al is drunk with craziness. This draft makes no sense. But this is the big plan they had all along right?

  • DMAC

    Hey Al, please draft……….

    Theeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese NUTS!

  • SnB Defense

    Hey Brien,

    Looks like the back 7 is still responsible for run defense

  • South FLA Raider

    Not a bad draft Tommy Trojan

    ***************
    No it looks like the front 7 is still soft as medicated cotton. We got the Liberachi Defense

  • JediRaider

    at least we’re getting closer to the point where we have so much money tied into other positions that we HAVE to draft blue chip D lineman. Our secondary should hopefully be set, our skill positions have to be set at this point, morison and howard take care of two positions at LB, so there aren’t any other places to go next year.

  • Tomycar

    Dude… just curious.. with your incredibly vast knowledge of scouting and player personell.. why arent you working at an NFL team.. rather then sitting on a blog all day… again.. just curious

  • South FLA Raider

    I see raidernews.com isnt cracking enough for ya huh? The team will be 6-10 at best. These picks suck

  • HayesDaze37

    Here come the multi-personalities now…this will be entertaining. Dude, you’re going to have allies. Dunno if they’re worth bragging about, though.

    Will one person — ONE PERSON — tell me what DHB’s downfall is? The fact he wasn’t a “good value?” How do any of you know that without seeing him in pre-season at the very least? Before Nnamdi gives us an update on how they go head-to-head in camp?

    The easiest thing to do is say the wrong pick was made, when there are a few thousand guys to pick from (and none have proven anything). It takes ballz to go get who you think is your man.

    Weak, and no character to proclaim failure before anybody’s stepped on the field. Weak and no character — coming from BrienThePrivates, MR, Norcoma Bob, and whatever the aliases are today. What a surprise!

  • DMAC

    Does anyone know if Franz Joseph got drafted?

  • RKraider

    Have you seen this clip? Gruden is talking as f e were the coach of the raiders, he uses a lot of “We’s”
