Third round underway


The New York Jets opened the third round of the draft selecting Iowa running back Shonn Greene, trading three later draft picks to the Detroit Lions for the right to make the selection at No. 65.

The Raiders are scheduled to pick at No. 31.

    People criticize DHBs lack of production at Maryland, but coming into the season, he was the nunber 2 rated WR in a lot of college preseason publications, including Phil Steeles. What people dont see is the fact that beside Maryland being a run first team and having a trash QB, DHB was often double, and yes, TRIPLE teamed.

    I really hope your right and Im wrong in this but DHB had 3 games where he didnt even touch the ball.
    True, but you look at the game against Clemson. 0 catches, doubled the whole game, still had a 76 yd TD run. Also, look at the BC game. DHB was doubled all game, opened up the passing game. Turner passed for 360 yards to other receivers because BC was focused on DHB heavy. Maryland was a big underdog that game and almost won. DHB was a big factor, even without catches.

    I beleive the Raiders plan this offseason was to save money. Slow the F/A moves and draft player you can sign cheap. Players who didn’t think it was nessassary to hire an agent & were waiting for the rookie F/A period to do so. Maybe Al expects this is his last year and wants to do his best to make sure the Raiders have little or no chance of success when he is gone.
