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 . . .

    This thing is officially on Russell’s shoulders now. This draft just said Al belive Russell is the guy to take the Raiders to the super bowl. Any other reasons?

  • Oak-Tone

    Let’s go with some updates. Want to know about these players.

    if the D-line isnt a problem, why didnt we address MLB??

  • raiderjhawk

    Awful lot of haters here…

  • jeremy s

    i can’t defend al davis’ logic regarding the draft this year. i have always respected al davis and have believed that he would get things turned around. i am not going to whine and cry about the draft picks and i am definately not going to jump ship as others on here have stated. i am still going to support the team and hope that al’s picks eventually lead mel kiper, todd mcshay, mike mayock, trent dilfer, trey wingo, chris berman, me-shawn johnson, rich eisen, steve mariucci, suzie kolber, etc. to say that al really did something great and that they are completely surprised. with that being said, i still don’t understand the logic behind this draft plan.

  • Tomycar

    LOL this day just gets better and better. not a single Olineman LOL.. but also.. not a single DT.. we are lost again against the run… i figured they would have to at least address the DT spot somewhere .. but nope.. LOL

    Comin up next gents – Some on get Terdell on a treadmill

    Yeah Al hit it big with small school guys like JLH, (who i begged to get PT hist first year), Schilens-who i thought would end up getting cut, and Trevor Scott. He is continuing the trend set last year. I mean Schilens wasn’t even the #1 receiver at SD and had absolutely terrible numbers but he gets to the league and shines. Al is banking that these high character, hard working, high IQ guys will do the same.

    Starters on Offense:

    Russell – QB
    McFadden – RB
    O’Neil – FB
    Barnes- LT
    Gallery – LG
    Satele – C
    Carlisle – RG
    Henderson – RT
    Miller – TE
    Heyward-Bey – WR
    Schilens – WR

    It could be worse…………………

  • Oak-Tone

    Raiders have ALWAYS had more success going against the grain..picking who they wanted..the picks that were “safe” by the experts have not panned out..Huff, Gallery, etc…We, The Raiders, will be fine. Draft is just a peice of the puzzle.

    seems like we got a TE!!!

  • SnB Defense

    Interesting how Pittsburgh and New England BOTH used 1st day picks to draft DTs

    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.

    ******************

    Say what? Sands is a huge problem. He doesnt command double teams and doesnt get enoug leverage to make us south vs the run and you need that. You are nuts

  • raiderjhawk

    Walters for a seven?, I’d take anything we can get for him. We don’t need that pansy around anymore.

    If you go to posts in 2008 I spoke on all those guys being good. I was the only to speak for Chaz and Higgins on this blog. All I had to do was hear about thier size during the practices in napa causing hell for the secondary

    f*ck that!!!!! I am sick of waiting until next year. been waiting til next year for 6 years!

  • Scottish Raider

    Before every one gets too depressed, one thought – this is probably the weakest draft class for a decade. No wonder it has been so hard to predict, there just are very few stars and not much depth. I suspect that most teams will struggle to find roster places for five or more rookies.

    We have got two good WRs and DHB could become a mega star. Mitchell fits a postion of need. All the others are battling for special teams and back-up slots.

  • severeraider

    Terdell Sands problem is a consistent effort. On one play he would collapse the pocket and get in the backfield (only to have our weak DE’s get pushed out of the play or have over pursued) and then he will take 6-7 plays off, not including the ones that he would spend on the sideline.

  • DMAC

    I’ll be satisfied, when Mitchell ends LT’s career with a devastating hit.

  • raiderjhawk

    Someone call Al, tell him to dangle Walters for a seven!

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Stryker Sulak. What a great name for a football player. He’s 6ft 5ins and 251 lbs. Good athlete, fast(what else),quick and aggressive, good pass rusher. He’s also thought to have average skills and is called a “classic overachiever”. So what? So is Fargas.

    What do we have on Brandon Meyers? All I know is that he’s a TE. Which is good because we need to free up Miller, he spends too much time blocking.

    Come on Jerry, give us a report.

  • blackdeath29

    look al davis said way back in feb.that he did not think this is a playoff team.next year they load up on dt than it will be complete.

  • Tooz loves Baby Ruth

    Love the 70′s porn names: Slade and Stryker. I think anybody who’s freaking out already ought to go outside, take a deep breath, and eat some pork. The Draft is a crapshoot, you can mitigate the risk, but there’s nothing to guarantee success regardless of where the player is drafted. Let it play out, or for Christ’s sake at least wait until the minicamps get going before you get all hysterical.

  • hamburger

    i guess the draft is over for us huh??

  • HayesDaze37

    LMN — try to play the game at least once (tackle, of course). Try and coach it for years. Try and evaluate players in the flesh — not the person/s taking the players in some beauty contest. Tray any of those things. Try and look at things a little more pragmatically, and then tell us again how bad the draft is — even before you’ve set eyes on the product once.

    LMN — It ALMOST pains me to say this, because there are others who spew much more vile filth than you ever do…but, you’re the least knowledgeable 30-year-old football fan in the house — and gaining support from the multi-personality trolls sure doesn’t help your credibility at all.

  • jeremy s

    tell al to dangle fargas for a seven as well. he should package walter and fargas together for the mr. irrelevent pick!

  • GRaider

    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.

    Monroe. We could have had Monroe. Polished pass-blocker. Safe pick.

    Before last year’s draft, I argued here that we should trade down with Cinci in a deal to get Chad Johnson, using the 10th pick to take Ryan Clady, who zone blocking experience would let him step right in at LT. I thought we could do that because we could run Michael Bush.

    I just hoped we learned from the Tampa Bay game that Bush belings on the field.

  • VT Raider

    It took a while but I think I’m ok now. I guess my disappointment stemmed from the Jets trading up with the Browns and not us for Sanchez. Out of my hands, I know, but just frustrating. I had a feeling the pick would by DHB, from looking at mocks and being a realist about Als love of speed. I’m not 100% thrilled with DHB but it would have been more palatable if we had gotten him later.

    ======================================================
    Yup. We are building sort of like the Indy Colts model. This is really on the coaches now.

    They got the best QB & RB from the SEC, the best RB from the Big East, the fastest receiver since Calvin Johnson, a 6’4 225 receiver with 4.3 speed, the best young tight end in the game, a great slot receiver, the best two returners in the game on special teams and the strongest kicking legs at kicker and punter..

    oh, and the best CB in the game, the 2nd coming of Jack Tatum, another good CB and the fastest WLB in the game.

    That offense better average about 24 to 28 pts per game

  • DMAC

    I’ll be satisfied, when Mitchell ends LT’s career with a devastating hit.

    Yeah i remember that you and another were saying that JLH would be good. I rarely post but i put my 2 cents in now and again on what i thought he could do. I remember many saying that he should get cut lol. Thats why after an emotional first day that had me pretty upset i have cooled down. I just can’t wait til we get to the camps and get to see what we have on O. Thinking about the lineup in my head we should be able to make a lot of noise if the O-line does its part.

  • raiderjhawk

    how about huff, fargas and walters for Edwards? Straight up

  • Oak-Tone

    I am on record saying…..We are winning our Division…

    LOL, yeah! especially when they run up the middle and Morrison spins around himself like a ballerina, and dont know where his own end-zone is =)

    Morrison is a great pass-catcher, but stop the run he cant! and how they run right through the line should say something about the D-line…

    but I guess not, HazeDaze know this shyt =)

  • raiderjhawk

    If we can at least score 24-28 pts. a game we should be aaaaaalllllright!

  • jeremy s

    al needs to find a way to hurry up and get back on the clock to pick follett(olb) or ellerbe(ilb). never mind. that would actually make sense which in turn, would make no sense to al.

    BrieThePrivates — You were the ONLY guy espousing the merits of Chaz and JLH in here a year ago? All these posters, and you were the only fan of those guys — what a guy you are.

    Does Al get credit for those two guys? (Not Al — because Al doesn’t make any good picks, right?!)

    seems to me AL just woke up this friday and said, shyt its draft time, ohh lets just play it from the hip…

    Hey Al!
    Why do we still have Walter?
    Denver needs a quarterback, any quarterback.

  • DMAC

    Morrison would be fine if our garbage ass DT’s would keep O-linemen off him every now and then.

    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
