Brooks’ mock: Suh to Raiders at No. 8

Conventional wisdom, if there is such a thing in terms of the draft, has it that the Raiders are out of the running for either of the prize defensive tackles.

Oklahoma’s Gerald McCoy and Nebraska’s Ndamukong Suh gone by the first three picks.

If Al Davis were looking to get one one of those two players to help plug a porous middle and join Tommy Kelly and Desmond Bryant, he would almost certainly have to trade up.

Bucky Brooks, a former Raiders defensive back and NFL.com correspondent, maps out a scenario where Suh could fall to the Raiders at No. 8 in his most recent mock draft.

If this were to happen, and Suh ends up being the call, Al Davis ought to offer him a job.

At the tail end of last season, Richard Seymour and Greg Ellis were singing Suh’s praises during casual conversation, believing him to be worthy of his considerable reputation.

His Big 12 title game performance against Texas was as dominant a game as I’ve seen from a defensive tackle in college football.

    For Russell to be considered “Overweight” instead of “Obease”, he needs to weigh in at 257

    RRs,

    First of all, howdy… how you doin today bro?

    Secondly, BMI is total crap. When I got out of the Army, I was 5′10, 185. I had FOUR percent body fat. I want to give you a second for that to sink in. FOUR PERCENT BODY FAT. I had a lot of muscle on my frame and was in the best shape of my life.

    The BMI scale said that I was morbidly obese.
    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    Finally something we agree on. I wouldn’t be surprised if 90% or more of the guys in the NFL are considered obese.

  • Ryan

    I want Suh for the Raiders first pick.

    I’m expecting T. Williams. (Which is ok, also.)

    I would be happy with DL, OL or LB.

  • RaiderRockstar

    thanks Ryan!

    still waiting for VanHeathen, SteveAlford21 & DKnight …

  • Ghost to the Post

    RRS, If I maybe so bold. I’ll take Suh if he falls to us. If not him then I would grab T. Williams.

  • Ghost to the Post

    oops may be

  • RaiderRockstar

    gotcha ghost. thanks bro

  • RaiderRockstar

    still waiting for dantche34, VanHeathen, SteveAlford21 & DKnight …

    I guess some guys just don’t know what they want!

    LOL.

    I didn’t think it was that big of a deal :)

  • Mistabr0wn

    Impeach 0bama.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Why haven’t Republicans tried to impeach Obama? Oh, that’s right, they can’t. They were voted out of the majority.

  • Mistabr0wn

    Impeach J Russell.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Why should Russell lose weight? He’s going to get paid no matter what. Do you guys want Russell to lose weight as a personal favor to you? What does he owe you? He has an agreement with Al Davis, or, the Oakland Raiders. He shows up, he gets payed. It is the Oakland Raiders who agreed to that deal. Every contract has two signatures. You guys are only taking aim at one signature on that contract. Why?

    Suh.

  • Mistabr0wn

    MR, did you see 0bama melt down on FOX yesterday ? Great TV! His lips were even more purple than normal, he probably had a big cup of grape Koolaid before the interview.

  • RaiderRockstar

    MR & Brown –

    who do you guys think the Raiders should draft in Round 1?

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Russell shouldn’t worry at all about his weight, unless for health reasons. As far as football goes, he’s set. He has his money. I don’t blame him for not caring. It’s obvious Al is not going to cut him. He has a sweet deal. You can’t get mad at him for being smart enough to know it and take advantage of it.

  • Mistabr0wn

    RR, depends on who is there at #8.

  • RaiderRockstar

    LA: Suh = “the fast guy” ?

    LOL!

    I believe Ricky said who we THINK will be the pick.

    I stand pat at “the fast guy.”

    I WANT Suh.

    RRS, I’m not concerned with this year’s draft. We have so many needs that draft picks will not fix. Means nothing to me.

  • Mistabr0wn

    RR,
    The first 3 picks should be a OL, DT, MLB in no special order. Best guy available.

  • RaiderRockstar

    come on MR. don’t be a party pooper

    just list a player you think might have a big impact for the Raiders or at least a guy who fills a position of need

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Unless the following are on the board, the draft is of no concern to me:

    An owner

    A general manager

    A head coach

    a coaching staff

    A good QB

    An entire offensive line ready to play at a winning NFL level, now

    At least 3 d linemen or linebackers who can play the run

    And, of course, we’d need the 15 or so picks to get all of these guys. So, since these dire needs can’t be addressed, there’s no point in wasting my time watching the draft. It counts for absolutely nothing.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    I wasn’t aware there was a party in here, RRS. Looks like a football discussion, to me. And, I’m participating just like everyone else.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Brown: say you have your choice of

    Okung
    T. Williams
    Davis
    Bulaga
    Suh
    McCoy
    D. Williams
    McClain
    Spikes
    Spoon

  • LA to TheBay

    RRS, I’ll do you one better. Here’s my mock Al Davis Mock Draft

    1. Bruce Campbell
    2. Jahvid Best
    3. Jacoby Ford
    4. MLB with Raider Speed
    5. OG with Raider Speed
    5. Cover Corner with Raider Speed
    6. Fullback with Raider Speed
    7. Fastest guy left

    If Eric Berry is on the board at 8, Al takes him.
    If Suh is on the board at 8, Al takes him.

    They won’t be, so there’s your 2010 Raider draft class.

  • Mistabr0wn

    RR,
    I dont watch College Football. I’ve said that several times. I dont watch combines, you get the picture? We need a DT, MLB, and OL.

    Witht he 4th pick I might go after a WR because JLH & DHB are garbage.

  • RaiderRockstar

    I’m participating just like everyone else

    and you’re doing a great job bro

    Rockstar, maybe you’re having trouble paying attention, but what I said is that the draft is NOT a big deal to me. Obviously, it’s a big deal to YOU. you’re the one who wants everyone to name a draft pick, so obviously, it’s a big deal to YOU, not me. I gave you my reason as to why I think it’s stupid and won’t participate, and you responded by telling me to name someone anyway. Thought that was an interesting response, but I guess you didn’t mean anything by it. So how about letting it go now?

  • SteveAlford21

    RRs,

    Sorry for the delay, I was with a customer and then had to run to the bank and go pick up more nitrile gloves. It’s tough to pick between Bulaga and Iupati… and every time I think I’ve chosen, I pause and rethink it. Honestly, I’m fine with either pick. I keep thinking that I’d rather have Iupati since he’s the top Guard, but then again, Bulaga could play G just fine if he doesn’t work out at T. Okay, at this moment, I say that I’d rather have Bulaga… I think.

  • Mistabr0wn

    RR, we are set at Safety, RB, K, Punter, Schilens & Murphy at WR, add 1 more. Wimbley, Howard @ LB, fill in a MLB. We are ok at DE, we need a C and maybe a RT. We have Frye & Gradkowski @ Qb.

    What else do we need?

  • Thec07

    What up NATION?

    RR, What up Bro? Anyway we ned to take the best availble OT,DT,MLB period.

    2 of the first 3 picks should address the oline. Get Dan Lefevour in the 4th if your not going to trade for Smith at baltimore.

    I heard JRUSS weighed in at 271. He must have really been 3 bills. what a lard A$$…..

    DKnight007 & dantche34 :

    who do you want in Round 1?

    ^^^^^^^^
    Well as of now the pick should be on one of the elite OT prospects or a DT, because this freakin team needs to get better in the trenches and the have nothing so far in free agency to upgrade those positions.

    As of now, since there seems to be more good depth at the DT position that the OT position….so far the pick should be either T Williams, D Williams or A Davis.

    However, the old man will probably target B Campbell or JPP.

    I’m still not sure who I want the pick to be yet.

    I need to see what other moves are made in free agency or trade to fill certain positions.
