Raiders take OT Jared Veldheer


So much for the Bruce Campbell to the Raiders storyline so popular following the combine.

With Campbell still on the board at No. 69, the Raiders made offense tackle Jared Veldheer, a Division II All-America from Hillsdale, their third round pick. Veldheer is 6-foot-8, 312 pounds.

    What you think of our new OT ????

  • Raider75, find the comment where I say that McClain “can’t” do anything, and I’ll answer that question.

    I cant believe Buffalo passed on McCoy in the third!

  • RNOraiderFan

    McCoy = Grossman or = Brees, what do you think?

  • PassTheCheetos

    I hate mel kiper. Out of all the analysts who cover the draft his opinion is the least valuable. He had clausen rated as the forth best prospect.

    As long as Al Davis is involved with our drafting, you’d have to be crazy to get excited about anything, really.

    Shut Up

    Can’t blame MaddenRaider, What has the Raiders done good for the last 7 years. I prefer to be optimistic, it makes my day better.

    When Veldheer showed up in Indianapolis for the Combine, there was nothing Division II about him. He ran the fastest three-cone drill and 20-yard shuttles of all the offensive lineman and came in fourth in the 40-yard dash with a time of 5.09 seconds.

    Mccoy in the bottom of the 3rd…wow!

    I don’t know a damn thing about the OT Veldmeer. All I know is Cable waxed poetic about him some 3-4 weeks ago. I haven’t seen a shred of film on the guy.

  • hwnrdr

    Whats up 4eva? What do you think so far?

  • 🙂

  • RNO, give it a rest. I’m not going to take tips on reaching enlightenment from Raider fans. Thank you. It just so happens I’m a responsible adult and can function while being “negative”.

  • Right now would be the time we would get in….trade with the Pat’s!!!

  • fat kidd

    can you draft a head coach?

  • Let’s get Bruce Campbell!

    Mack Brown on the NFL Network set after the commercial break.

    Now’s a really good time to turn off the TV, I think.

    Jeezuz H. Christ. I hope you’re not as negative in all other aspects of your life as you are with regards to the Raiders. I don’t think you’re an idiot at all. I do think you see yourself as a “realist” while everybody else is delusional or a “kool aid drinker”. I don’t think you’re a realist at all, you’re a defeatist. And a wet blanket, basically.
    You see nothing positive, ever. “At least not until Al dies”. I think you’re obsessive hatred of Al Davis has turned you into an almost pathetic Golem-like creature. Do you wander around in the dark referring to Lane Kiffin as “My Precious”? F’ing Sad.

    MR. Davis is not making the picks this year…


    Oh, and Buckeye Raider, re: your post above: any success this team has–and it certainly won’t be a SB ring while Davis is alive–will come in spite of it’s pitiful leadership.

  • No Mas Diamante

    really like this draft but i’m sorry we missed out on RG John Jerry.

  • As an SEC fan it tears me that Tebow is in Denver, that being said…my 11 year old son in his S&B #80 Rice jersey says he suffered a concussion already and maybe won’t like altitude for the next 12 years… from the mouth of babes…coming to Oak-town /SF for Halloween… Jesus McCoy to C-land ends any hope of an offensive change of direction. I hope a TB is available in the later rounds…unless Boller turns into HOF [soon] Plunkett we are unfortunately pressing for a Jbust lazarus career
