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.

    This Myers kid seems like he’s the first guy we drafted in the correct round.

    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.

    biggest needs, ILB and DT. So we could stop the run…

    what did we pick, pass rushers and ST players… Waow

    ———————————

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

    ====================================================

    you actually think Morrison can stop the run?? he has OLB written all over him… Morrison might be a MIKE in the 3-4… but not in the 4-3, he has showed us that plenty of times…

    how will we stop the run??

    Wow, we traded up for Myers? Sorry, but he wasnt gonna be drafted. Im really curious as to what led them to trading up for HIM. This almost erases how good of a pick Sulak was.

    The Raiders will stop the run by the time reaching 0:00 in the 4th quarter.

    Just think guys, we could have had Eugene Monroe at #7. We also wasted our #40 pick by trading with New England, and ended up with a late 4th and a late 6th???

    —————————————-

    If you think Morrison is a liability now, what’s he going to be like outside with no linemen to even attempt to keep him clean?

    If we ever do upgrade at MLB, Morrison will either backup Howard on the weak side or be allowed to walk. He is by no stretch of the imagination a SAM linebacker.

    I’d like a more pass catching oriented TE. If Miller gets dinged, we have nothing. Tony Stewart is a decent enough blocking TE. Shawn Nelson or Cornelius Ingram would have been really nice picks.

  • South FLA Raider

    Cant believe we passed up Ricky Jean-Francois. That would have added more depth at DT.

  • DMAC

    Can’t believe we passed on Zack.

  • Voldemort

    Al Davis should feel humiliated with this “draft”. I know I am. With all the DEs we got, you would think one of them could be a base end instead of a speed pass rusher, but nope. Al davis is way too obsessed with speed, and for that reason alone, we will not be a respectable football team until he is gone. I looked up our 4th round picks on youtube, and they don’t even have videos of them…what a sad weekend.

  • Tommy Trojan25

    the trade was with the Panthers, so….Walter?

  • dickv

    got my inline blocking TE.

    The raiders did not get a dt or an OT. There are still a few holes.

    WR core… check
    SS…. check
    DE…. check
    LB/ special team player…. check
    inline TE…. check

    That will work for me fellas.

    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!!).

    during the two years Kiffin was here, Al had say on the #1 and the rest was up to Kiffin, Al admitted that himself…

    cant you see how much this draft is like the 2002-2006?

    and the board thing, havent we all had a draft board since january??? i have, and most in here has…

  • severeraider

    I just read a scouting report on Murphy that said he has “good” hands and is a “reliable” target It also said that Slade was good agianst the run but his lack of bulk would hurt him at the next level and especially try to make tackles in close-quarter situations

    If that was the case why did Al say that JLH and Schilens were his guys and surmised that as the reason they didn’t play sooner. If Al said that he only made the first pick and the rest were Kiffin i want a link or a direct quote.

    That doesn’t really “stop” the run….its about getting the other team to “have” to pass the ball.

    The run defense is bad….there is no way around that…score points and score often…that’s the goal…and it better be….

  • alisgod

    I said this last year and I will say this again…

    Last year when we were competitive, we put pressure on the QB. “We had no business winning the Jets game but Scott got sacks on Favre. When we got blown out, we never had pressure on the QB. New England, Denver, SD and ATL proved that. yes, I know we need to stop the run but it was the lack of pass rush that killed us.

    I hope we do better with these DE’s we picked up.

    Slade is very good against the run from all that i have read, he is an OLB and was converted from DE. He is not a situatinal pass rusher. Shaughnessy is another guy that plays well against the run, i have actually seen him play but only a few times admittedly. He is a team leader and has the ability to rush the passer and be a force in the run game. He would have gone earlier if not for durability issues

    The middle of the D-Line isn’t the problem. Give those big boys help left, right, and behind them, and the D-line is just fine. Kelly and Terdell are not the problem with the defense.

    The run wouldn’t be nearly the problem it is to defend — if our opponents were ever forced to pass (and stopped in their attempts). Like the old yin and yang…score more points, and put the pressure on the other team to take risks. That means a much better chance of defensive success.

    If a few more cylinders are hitting, the effects of the “weaker” links on the team can be lessened considerably.

  • dickv

    Burgess, & Scott can get to the QB. Jay and the 3rd rounder add bulk to that position. If that Styrker kid does anything the raiders will have a formidable pass rush.

    The raiders will have to score points. There is no doubt about that. So what. The raiders tried to build a great defense and it just got them into the worst period in the history of the franchise. Now there are tons of weapons on offense.

    JR, Miller, Bush, JLH,Oren oneal, Dmac, Shields, Schillens, DHB, Louis Murphy, and Myers have all been drafted over the past few years. They have enough talent to make noise on that side of the ball.

    JR and DMAC can be all pro’s in time. miller possibly a pro bowler. JLH is a threat every time he touches the ball. DHB is a dangerous player: he was rated a 1st rd pick. murphy can fly. Bush might be the most talented out of them all. They can score points now. I think schillens and shields will challenge for playing time this year ahead of DHB and murphy. Javon walker is lurking in their as well. There is more than enough talent to win games with that offense.

    The defense is built to stop the pass. If the offense can score points teams will have to drop back and throw at them which is not an easy task. they can flat out fly. They can cover. There are two lB who can make plays. They have several players that can get pressure on the QB.

    They will be bad against the run, and that is a certainty. They have to hope that offense can move the ball.
