UPDATE: Myers added at TE

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.

    Still need a SAM, probably more than we need a MIKE.

    I like this kid a lot.

  • DarthPirate

    The Raiders now have two of the best names in football.

    Stryker Sulac

    Slade Norris

  • Crow

    Mayock likes this guy. High motor, try hard type of guy. marginal athlete.

  • SnB Defense

    BIOGRAPHY: Full-time starter the past two seasons after seeing sporadic playing time with the first team as a freshman and sophomore. Totals last season included 55/15.5/10.5 after 60/11/6 as a junior. All-Conference selection the past two seasons.

    POSITIVES: Athletic defensive front seven prospect with ability as a defensive end or rush linebacker. Plays with good lean, effectively uses his hands to protect himself, and rarely off his feet. Quickly gets off the snap with a nice first step, good speed off the edge, and can bend or pursue from the back side. Physical, likes to mix it up, and finds a way to be a disruptive force. Strings plays out laterally.

    NEGATIVES: Controlled at the point of attack by single blocker. Lacks the natural bulk to be a defensive end, and may struggle against the run.

    ANALYSIS: Sulak is a disciplined defender who plays with an aggressive attitude. Best up the field, he has definite possibilities standing up over right tackle in a 3-4 alignment, and he could develop into a starter at the next level if he displays the ability to play in pass coverage.

    PROJECTION: Fourth/Fifth Round

  • DMunoz 26

    Stryker and Slade… Slade and Stryker

    Wasn’t that a 80′s action movie with Stallone and Kurt Russel in it?

  • IndianaRaider

    someone needs to snag that list from Cable and see how many of these guys are seriously listed for the Raiders to pick. I’m having a “hard” time just accepting this one, lol.

  • Brien the General 510

    please be a D-tackle Al. Come on! Anthony Dixon?

  • South FLA Raider

    Ellerbe!!!!Ellerbe!!!

  • alisgod

    Stryker will be special teamer and if we are lucky he switches to SAM.

  • DMunoz 26

    I’m predicting the pick will be Stone Jackson.

  • TownRaider510

    Wha did we trade?

  • Brien the General 510

    They picked a tight end! Actually smart for once

  • IndianaRaider

    what trade did we make for that TE?

  • SnB Defense

    I have to give props to Priest, JHill, Nnamdi on the defensive strategy…

    Its all about stopping the pass and scoring points…drafted a two speedy receivers, a safety and THREE situational pass rushers….to go with three linebackers that excel at pass coverage, the highest paid CB in the game, another good man2man corner and speed with tyvon branch.

    The run defense consists of scoring points to force the team to pass.

    I get it now! It was bludgeoned into my head…but I get it now.

    I DO remember, I ahd schilens and Branch =) and when you start mentioning this Scott, I did some research and understood why you ahd him, so he was on my board as well…

    Man i miss Kiffin making draft picks…

    —————————————-

    LMN!! Ha ha. “Your board” last year? You didn’t even know how to draft for FFL.

    And…Al’s at fault for every draft pick ever made, except not for the ones made when Kiffin was here (or Allen/Wolfe et al)? Your second face is showing, LMN (who has the most important job in the world!!).

  • M Lonetree

    Stryker Sulak may well be the next Preston Ridlehuber, you never know.

  • McFadden20

    we still show as picking in the 7th round so what did we give up??

  • alisgod

    You have to admit we have not seen this much high motor and charater guys in one Raider Draft in years. Looking forward to the team being built under Cable.

  • DMunoz 26

    Hopefully the Raiders traded Javon Walker for the pick.

  • McFadden20

    no 7th round pick has gone

    Overview
    Despite signing with Iowa in 2004, Myers’ career seemed at a standstill. Not even listed on the depth chart in the spring of 2006, he developed into a reliable red-zone target as a junior, scoring five touchdowns on just 21 receptions for the season. Again listed as a backup entering his senior season, Myers parlayed injuries by others and his own development into earning first-team All-Big Ten accolades. Myers isn’t a special athlete, but in tying for the team lead with four receiving touchdowns in 2008, he is viewed by some as an ascending prospect. Others, however, question if his effectiveness was due to defenses stacking the line of scrimmage in an effort to slow running back Shonn Greene.

    Analysis
    Positives: Legitimate NFL build. Stout upper body. Good hand placement and upper body strength to assist in pass protection. Shows some balance and lateral quickness to mirror the defender. At least adequate initial quickness off the snap. Flexible enough to dip under the jam to gain a free release. Shows some burst out of his breaks and to gain separation. Not often given opportunities to catch passes in Iowa’s offense, but shows at least adequate hands for the reception. Can make the tough grab in traffic.

    Negatives: Lacks the straight-line speed to challenge down the seam. While possessing at least adequate upper body strength, is not explosive. Can get fundamentally lazy when blocking laterally. Stops moving his feet, causing him to remain engaged at the line of scrimmage or in space. Lacks agility in space to make defenders miss. Arrested in December 2007 on a charge of public intoxication and interference with official acts, pled guilty and was fined.

    forget what anybody says, Stryker was a beast at Mizzou

    plus 6′5 250 4.7 40

    I LIKE THIS PICK

    Looks like Marshall plans on bringing a lot of pressure. Im liking this

    Myers, not so much. complete waste. he wasnt even listed on Iowas roster most of his time there

  • Brien the General 510

    I like that pick. Brandon Myers outta be penciled for the 22nd tight end. Dammit Stewart sucks

  • On the beach in Cancun

    I think we’re seeing a steady decline in the “thinking processes” of Al Davis. If you think it’s scary now, don’t even try and imagine what will happen next year! That’s off the charts.

  • South FLA Raider

    Gunheim and Stryker Sulak, sounds like a German Attorney Firm LoL!!

  • Crow

    Eisen says we gave up our 7th and a 6th from next year.
