UPDATE: Myers added at TE

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, April 26th, 2009 at 2:08 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders sixth round selection, No. 199 overall, is Missouri defensive end Stryker Sulak, and then made a trade to get to No. 202 and select Iowa tight end Brandon Myers.

The Raiders acquired the pick from Carolina, which will get the Raiders’ pick (No. 216) in the seventh round and a sixth-round pick next season.

More information to come . . .

    You been drinking that German beer again?

    Look, I am the biggest Terdell Sands guy out here. The problem is the guy doesn’t have any consistency to his game. That’s the problem man.

    Tommy Kelly…he got rewarded to early and as a result we have to live with his contract and HOPE.

    We did nothing to address the lack of a stout DE. NOTHING. The D-Line is not finesse nor is it stout….its just there.

    There are two coaches who matter MORE than Cable…

    Dwayne Board and Sanjay Lal

    SnB: I remember asking you a couple weeks ago if we should finish trying to build to offense this year and give Marshal a year to see what we have…. i guess we got the answer to that question.. we may not agree but atleast it seems like they have a plan and are sticking to it
    =======================================================
    Not really…they spent four of their 7 picks on defense. Just not in the areas I thought they needed

    Tim Brown won the heisman and also returned kicks, punts, and ran the ball from the wing. look at tim browns total yards and tds. no comparison. i hope dhb turns out to be the next tim brown but i am not holding my breath. i do, however, believe that he will help the offense.

    Seems like Mitchell is really po’d at Mel Kiper.
    He’s going to put his photo in his locker.
    It’s Mario and Kiffins all over again.

    Just tell Mitchell that every team we play has a relative of Kiper and tell Mario that every team we have has a Kiffin.

    So, how much speed do we have at LT?

    You have to wonder why Jacksonville let Barnes leave and then drafted OT in both the 1st and 2nd rounds.

    ———————————————-

    Because Barnes is a terrible pass protector. We can’t seriously be counting on him to play LT. Might as well bring back Kwame Harris.

  • DMAC

    Just let Russell throw the ball 75 yds and see if DHB can run it down.

  • HayesDaze37

    Anybody who says Terdell sands and kelly had pretty good years last year were blind.

    Don’t blame Morrison’s lack of run-stopping tackling ability on Sands and Kelly — most big runs against us were off-tackle, and the LB’s whiffed more than matadors.

    If Burgess, or anuybody other than a rookie (Scott) had done ANYTHING on the edges last year, nobody’d even be even mentioning the big guys in the middle. They’re not perfect, but they were NOT the problem last year.

    Would I like a big, young, mountain of a man in the middle? Yeah? Would I trade any one of my first 4 (the alleged “money” picks) of this draft to take one in his place? No.

    And, LMN — we SHOULD have addressed MLB/ILB somewhere along the way (regardless of Kelly/Sands), and I’d be surprised if we don’t bring in a few to try out.

    Tim Browns numbers from ND:

    137 2493 18.2 12 84

    DHB’s stats at Maryland:

    Rec yds. Ave. TD LG
    138 2089 15.1 13 96

    Uh huh. And?

    ____________________________________________________

    no im sober, what is it you dont understand? maybe i can elaborate… you’re not negative??? there is nothing to be satisfied about, they effed this draft pretty much up…

    I accept DHB, I like Mike Mitchel, hate the Matt S pick totally waste…. the rest maybe Slade will be a good ST player, but No DT?? no MLB??? we cant stop the run with this defense…

  • r8rpaver

    I would bet money that when teams start their cuts we get some run stopping support

  • Scottish Raider

    The second crumb of comfort is that, given the overall mediocrity, there will be some reasonable FAs. For example, those of us wanting to find someone to put pressure on Morrison will note that the following reasonable ILBs are still on the Board: Darry Beckwith, Dannell Ellerbe, Worrell Williams and Josh Mauga.

  • HayesDaze37

    Ha — that first sentence must’ve been Freudian!

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfRIEg5IMBI&feature=related Raider Nation 951

    DHB did rush the ball:

    Att Yds Ave TD
    25 314 12.5 2

    Best stat from DHB

    Total fumbles: 0

    I’m not saying he is the second coming of Timmy, but if the Raiders are going to draft a WR in the top of the 1st, its nice to know that they didn’t draft a pure speed guy, they actually got someone with skills.

  • r8rpaver

    SnB who do you think is a better DT Raji or Dorsey coming out of college

  • DMAC

    Didn’t they draft Bill Cosby too??

  • The Iceman Cometh

    Thats what we all get for drinking the Wierd Al Koolaid. Wee really needed to hit on this draft and instead I feel like we shot out load. This just confirms and should remove all doubt that AL Davis has and will always draft the players he wants no matter how absurd.
    The DHB picks like genious if you look at how badly we totally whiffed in the second round. Damn I hope he turns into something special.
    How DO YOU NOT TAKE MONROE OR AT THE VERY LEAST TRADE DOWN???? THIS IS WHY WE WILL BE PICKING AGAIN IN THE TOP TEN NEXT YEAR….
    We really had a chance to make a statement and we totally blew it.

  • jeremy s

    c’mon al, there has to be something or someone (walter, fargas would be nice) that you can trade to get another pick or two before this thing is over. there is still some decent talent on the board that can at least provide good competition in camp.

  • GRaider

    Agreed, Crow.

    I expect tha AD and Cable plan to play Mario Henderson at LT. RT will be a toss-up between Pears and Barnes. Pears might start the season based on his zone blocking experience.

    Monroe!!!

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfRIEg5IMBI&feature=related Raider Nation 951

    Damn, Shipley went to the Steelers.

  • DMAC

    Is Zack still available????

  • SnB Defense

    That’s my beef guys. Where is that DE that holds the g-d point? Where’s the NT that can swallow up a couple lineman?

    That’s all I was looking for. I wasn’t looking for a defensive overhaul..although…

    Just wanted ONE mf’er that can do something against the run and keep an LB clean.

    The Raiders didn’t do that today and that’s what is disappointing. The 3rd and 4th rounds were disappointing. The DTs that were available could have helped.

    I have no beef with the DHB pick. I really don’t. But they really needed a run oriented lineman and they didnt do it.

    So now they have to rely on Dwayne Board to coach these guys up BIG TIME. Kelly has to be play to his contract THE BEST DT IN THE LEAGUE…not serviceable…he should be there with Haynesworth or Kevin Williams…Tommie Harris or Warren Sapp in his prime…Come on

    Same with Warren…disappears for entire games.. can’t have that sh****…you know… paid $5million a year…he CANT BE FREEEKN AVERAGE

    and Terdell Sands…I mean the excuses for those 3 ended today BIG TIME BECAUSE THE DEFENSE REALLY RESTS ON THEIR SHOULDERS.

    Think about it…even if our offense becomes the next “Greatest Show on Turf” what good will it do if teams just pound the rock and play ball control…then we will be forced to pass all the time.

    Not a hater..just going off of what my untrained eyes have seen the past couple of years.

    Talk about Russell being in the building…who’s asking about the D-Lineman….THOSE ARE THE GUYS GASPING FOR AIR

  • BESTCOAST RAIDER

    i will always be a raider fan and i seriously hope this draft surprises alot of people. i still cant believe we didnt draft any o-line/d-line. i’m not high on any of these picks except maybe mike mitchell at safety. i have to say that if most of these picks work out not many of us will apologize for bashing al and when the season starts we will all be cheering our team on. listen its a done deal now lets all move on. that being said i wanna be the first to admit i said some things out of anger about al and these selections but the reality is i will support the team, GO RAIDERS! p.s. i wish i hadnt quit smoking weed and drinking cause i need a release

  • Crow

    Tommy Kelly: Trash
    Gerrard Warren: Trash
    Terdell Sands: Trash
    Whatever scrubs end up backing them up: Useless

    Welcome to another season of bottom 5 run defense.

  • GRaider

    Ouch. NFL Network just reviewed Eugene Monroe. Mayock’s #1 player in the entire draft. Good bet to be a long-time pro bowler.

    Big need for us. It all starts with the line. Zone blocking takes care of the run, but Monroe was the premium LT pass blocker.

    I know Stryker I like this kid. I remember when Mizzou picked him up, and he’s never let the team down. He’s going to be be a good pick, but needs to put on some weight.

  • jetcleaning

    awesome now we have a 6thtier tight end to go with a 4thtier WR bet u fans are excited!
