Nevada QB Kaepernick lines up visit with Raiders

 

Raiders new coach Hue Jackson has made it clear that he and “coach” Al Davis are behind Jason Campbell as the unquestioned starter at quarterback next season. However, it’s always wise to plan for the future, especially at the most important position.
Hence, the Raiders have scheduled a visit with Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick, according to the National Football Post. Here’s the link: http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/Colin-Kaepernick-up-to-10-workouts-to-visit-Raiders.html
Kaepernick is a tall quarterback, who scored a 37 on the Wonderlic and possesses a very strong arm. All three are intangibles that managing general partner Davis covets.
Even better, there’s a decent shot that Kaepernick will be available in the second round of this year’s NFL draft, when the Raiders are scheduled to make their first selection – they traded away their first-rounder to the New England Patriots for defensive tackle Richard Seymour just before the 2009 season.
Jackson and Davis might be sold on Campbell for now. However, it’s worth noting that Jackson admitted that he was part of the decision, along with then-coach Tom Cable, to bench Campbell at halftime of the Raiders second regular-season game last year. Campbell also was removed from a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers late in the season and replaced by Bruce Gradkowski the following game.
Also, Campbell, Kyle Boller and Charlie Frye – assuming he is re-signed – are the only quarterbacks on the Raiders roster, and they all turn 30 at some point this season. Earlier this offseason, Jackson said quarterback is the one position that he doesn’t feel the need to get an immediate return from this season.
Kaepernick would have the benefit of learning from three veteran quarterbacks for at least one season, without the pressure of being thrown into the mix right away.
It has been a long, long time since the Raiders discovered a legitimate starting quarterback in the draft. The past three, JaMarcus Russell (first round, No. 1 overall), Andrew Walter (3rd round) and Marques Tuiasosopo (2nd round) flamed out without making an impression as a starter.
Kaepernick’s stock has been rising on the strength of a solid showing at the NFL Scouting Combine and numerous private workouts. He now is projected to go anywhere from late in the first round to the third round.
“I had a chance to see him last summer at Peyton Manning’s Passing Academy,” NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock said in a national conference call. “I spent three days watching the kid throw the ball with Peyton and Eli (Manning). He’s got a huge arm. He’s a great athlete, and he’s got a big frame. The kind of guy you want to buy into. He’s the kind of guy that’s going to rise a little bit.”
The Raiders have enough talented players on their roster, as well as draft picks, to trade up into the first round if they fear Kaepernick is at risk of going before the Raiders pick at No. 48.
Last season, Kaepernick passed for 3,022 yards and 21 touchdowns and rushed for 1,206 yards and 20 touchdowns. He is the only player in Division I history to pass for more than 10,000 yards and rush for more than 4,000 yards.

    Teams having succeeded in the past with functioning drug addicts doesn’t clear the Raiders of any responsibility regarding Russell.

  • irjonny

    Their drafting of him, their failure at developing him as a player, their failure at taking some kind of responsibility, as a company, to get an employee help when he needed it, like all other companies in all other industries do when they have an obvious drug addict in the building.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Gust

    where do you work, the methadone clinic? in the real world if you are a drug addict you don’t have a job. i applaud Al for letting that piece of crap go. when you get paid 60 mil to play a game you should be responsible for your actions. what would you do if you paid someone even $60 to mow your lawn and when you come home the lawn is a mess and he’s passed out from cough medicine? your logic is ridiculous. that fat piece of crap deserves to be in prison for fraud IMO.

  • Gust372

    Irjonny, which “real world” are you referring to, the one in the 1950′s? The company I work for today, and it’s a large company, puts employees with drug or alcohol problems into rehab ASAP. They do not fire them. Most companies today do not fire employees that they know have a drug problem. Once they’re on with the company, it’s much less risk to get them into rehab. Firing them opens up opportunities for lawsuits. Clearly you’re the one not living in the real world. Your using a 1950′s business model to make an argument on handling employees with drug problems. Get a clue as to how companies handle such problems today, then get back to me. Mr. Real world.

  • Gust372

    Also, even if companies typically did just can people today for having substance abuse problems, the time for the Raiders to can Russell would have been in ’09, not ’10, when everyone and their mother knew he had a problem. So even if we did still live in your 1950s fantasy world, The Raiders still wasted a year, which still means the Raiders managed the situation poorly. Why don’t you hand me the shovel before you fall into that hole you’re digging.

  • Just Fire Baby

    The whole thing with companies and addiction is whether you check yourself in voluntarily or not as an employee.

    If you tell the company you need a week off to check yourself in for alcoholism, you really are protected for the most part.

    If the employer comes into your office, and you are wasted, than they can terminate you on the spot, and since you as the employee did not give any advanced warning of your “illness”, you have very little protection.

  • irjonny

    wow, seriously i would like to know which companies you are referring to. you know those papers you sign when you get a job? maybe you don’t, but there has never, ever been a lawsuit for firing someone for drug abuse…ever. it is ILLEGAL you twit.

    i do agree that we never should have drafted him, but the fact of the matter is russell had no problems with the law prior. if the raiders didn’t draft him then it would have been some other team in the top 10 and the situation would have happened the exact same way. every rookie gets minimum 3 yrs to be a pro. the way the raiders handled it is par for the course. here’s your money, this is what we expect, if not you are fired. please explain to me what the raiders should have done because i’m confused.

    by the way i own a successful company and have a minor in business so please don’t waste your time with preconceived ideas about how companies work. you have absolutely no idea (obviously) what you are talking about. either way even if your logic was not swiss cheese and his off the field problems were the raiders responsibility, he didn’t win games and fell asleep during meetings. he’s not a child he is an adult but that’s the risk you take with the no.1 overall pick and why you don’t draft wannabe gang bangers.

    IF you use drugs most places will show you the door.

    If the same company invested million of dollars and resources into you….then they may try to rehab you.

    JaDavis’ biggest problem wasn’t drugs. He just didn’t care about football enough. He was more interested in the destination (riches, parties, sleeping in, hangin out, attending ball games etc…) than the journey (training, practicing, conditioning, commitment etc.)

    Al Davis got burnt again. So it goes….hopefully Darius Heyward-Bey learns how to catch a doggone ball!

    Well, hopefully the Raiders can overcome the foolish decisions and find a way to win next year

    All you Dr. Drew wannabees need to slow down. When was it confirmed that JR was released because of a drug problem? When was he confirmed as drug addict? Does somebody have “confirmed” reports of drug addiction? Any trips to Promises or the Menninger Foundation? And provided you can find that, when did it start?

    JaDavis didn’t want football period. Al Davis and his “scouting” team neglected to do the background checks and just got captivated with arm strength.

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    Are you being serious SnB???? You really think Al did ZERO scouting and picked JR just because of arm strength? You don’t think the scouts went back as far as his high school days, where he was a 4-Star recruit, in their evaluation of him? No game film or interviews or time on the grease board evaluating his football IQ? Please tell me you’re joking around. So if Al passes on him and takes Calvin Johnson, where do you think JR ends up? Is he even in the top top two rounds in your estimation?

    JRuss and Calvin Johnson were like 1 and 1a in that draft. If we took Megatron the Lions would have taken JaSlob and gotten screwed like we did. What happened with Russell was pure bad luck. It had nothing to do with bad scouting. DHB was bad scouting, but not JaRuss.

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    Finally a voice of reason! Agree that things would have gone south in Detroit if JR had gone there. But again, that has more to do with the organization than the player. How have things turned out for Calvin? Or Matt Stafford for that matter? How’d they turn out for Joey Harrington? One of these days, some of you guys are going to figure out that QBs are only as good as the teams around them. Look at JR’s numbers compared to Matt Stafford’s and tell me they aren’t oddly similar. Yet Stafford is the young up-and-comer and JR is the worst humban being that ever lived. What a fckin joke!

    i agree, the raiders had little choice but to get a QB and russell was right where cam newton is now. newton and gabbert remind me alot of the russell quinn comparison. either way you look at it the most important thing is that we don’t end up in a position to pick no.1 again.

    Debo,

    JaDavis was overweight, didn’t work hard and loved the high life.

    Raiders fell for it…and didn’t give the hard lessons to steer him straight.

    Calvin Johnson? He is LIGHT YEARS ahead of any receiver in Silver & Black

  • Buckeyeraider

    ‘Sup fellas.

    Must be a slow news day if the talk is back to JaMarcus Russel. That was a particularly sad chapter in Raider history. I’m willing to split the blame 50/50.

    In Jr’s defense he had the misfortune of getting drafted right into the nasty Al Davis/Lance Kiffin divorce. Into a situation where the HC obviously didn’t want him. The contract holdout didn’t help endear him to the fanbase any, and made his rookie season a complete wash.

    The ’08 season showed some promise, though and hope for the future. There were some ugly moments early on, like there will be with any young QB. But by the end of that season he was playing well. He seemed to be developing a nice rapport with Chaz and JLH.

    The Raiders ended that season going 3-3 the final six weeks, with Jamarcus averaging a QB rating of 90. He ended the year with a TD-Int ratio of 13-8. That’s very comparable to other young QB’s like Stafford or Sanchez, who often throw 20+ int’s their first 16 starts.

    He ended the season with two impressive wins vs Houston and Tampa. With McFadden and Bush also playing well, the future looked bright. In a late season 31-10 rout of the Broncos in Denver he completed his first 11 passes.

    Jerry McD made it sound like JR couldn’t complete 11 in a row the following training camp without any defense on the field, during passing drills.

    That’s because something went horribly awry in JR’s life that offseason and his career and life caromed off in the wrong direction. He lost his favorite uncle/mentor, yes. But he handled it very poorly. he acted like he just didn’t care anymore. He showed up fat and out of shape, with that stupid mohawk that just screamed immaturity.

    He was living the party lifestyle and started wearing all the diamond encrusted jewelry w/ images of himself and the self-proclaimed title of “The Chosen One”. How pathetic. You don’t give yourself a nickname. Especially when he hadn’t done a damn thing yet.

    Then the season started and just went from bad to worse. Instead of picking up where he left off in ’08 and building on that …complete faceplant.

    It didn’t help to be saddled with two rookies who couldn’t catch a cold, but JR didn’t do himself any favors either. The poor work ethic started to show. being late for meetings, etc. He just didn’t seem to care anymore.

    Sad. Really sad..all the way around. What might have been.

    “Set the frachise back years” is the most overused, tired cliche of all time!! Tell me, who set the franchise back for SIX years before JR even took the field?? In JR’s first year as a starter, he won one game less then the team had won in the previous two seasons COMBINED! And we went from last to third in the division. You’re right about one thing: Calvin is light year’s ahead of any Raider reciever. IMO, that’s a huge reason why JR struggled. The organization has held itself back with stupid coaching moves and a failure to provide a competent supporting cast for any of the QBs. Hue was hired a year too late.

    If we want to win the west and go to the playoffs our draft should be as follows:
    Rd2: Wiz 2.0, This gives us: LT-J.Veldheer,LG-D.Loper,C-Wiz,RG-B.Campbell,RT-L.Walker(re-sign + spend 4th round pick on RT) I think DMAC and Bush can lead the league in rushing behind that.
    Rd3: Casey Matthews, This completes an already bad a$$ front seven. Casey is just as good as his brother and we will be lucky if he is still there in the third, but according to most mock drafts, he will be. I believe some team will pull their heads out of their butts and pick him before this, but if he falls to us here we have to take him. He would instantly be the best player on our D.
    Rd4: Chris Hairston (RT)Langston Walker is almost done, I say we re-sign him for 1 more year because he is a beast of a run blocker, and bring Chris Hairston up to speed in the mean time. Hairston was a pretty damn good RT in college, so he may win the job outright in camp (if there is a camp).
    Rd5: Virgil Green (TE) I live in Reno, and am not usedto seeing the Wolf Pack play well, so I am always skepticle when it comes to Nevada players, but this dude can fly for being 6’3 and Al will probably take him. That is not a bad thing though, this kid is good, and we need another pass catching TE.
    Rd6: DeAndre Brown (WR) This dude is a beast! He is a 6’5 posession reciever. An injury in college hurt his draft stock, but this is the type of WR we need to compliment all the fast guys we have. Schilens could be that guy, but we all know we can’t count on him to be healthy.
    Rd7(1): You will notice that I have not taken a CB yet in my draft. That is because I don’t think it is that big of a need. Even if we are unable to re-sign Nnamdi, I think CJ and Routt are more than capable. And we have Ware and Walt McFadden, what does it say about them if we freak out and draft a CB early? I do think it’s vital that we re-sign Huff though, it’s hard to find a good single deep saftey in this league, and he seems to be getting the hang of it. Although, it does scare me that he didn’t get the hang of it until his contract year. At this point in the draft I would take either a FS or a CB, but at this point in the draft you just kinda keep your fingers crossed and hope for a diamond in the rough(which AL seems quite adept at finding, actually)
    Rd7(2): If I take a CB above, I take a FS here and vise versa.
    That’s how we win the west and make the playoffs for years to come. And once you’re in the playoffs, anything can happen!

    University of Miami cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke is scheduled to work out for the Oakland Raiders and the Cleveland Browns this week, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

    He conducted a private workout for the Baltimore Ravens a few weeks ago.

    And Van Dyke visited the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday and Tuesday.

    He previously worked out for the Denver Broncos and the Atlanta Falcons.

    Van Dyke ran the 40-yard dash between 4.25 and 4.28 seconds at the NFL scouting combine.

    He also posted a 33 1/2 inch vertical leap, a 10-1 broad jump and a 6.97 in the three-cone drill.

    He’s regarded as a late-round draft target.

    In 50 games, he started 21 games and recorded 80 tackles, three interceptions and 10 pass deflections.

    He also ran track for the Hurricanes.

    He started three games last season.

    At the combine, he posted the third-fastest time in the past decade.

    An angular 174 pounds, the 6-foot defensive back ran the fastest time since Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson (4.24, 2008) and Oakland Raiders cornerback Stanford Routt (4.27, 2005).

    Van Dyke’s lack of ideal size and strength are a concern, but his speed is rare.

    He bench pressed 225 pounds five times at the combine.

  • RaiderDebo

    Buckeye,

    Damn good synopsis. Just a couple of things. Stafford (13-20) and Sanchez (12-20) DID throw 20 ints their first years as starters. JR’s ratio of 13-8 was outstanding. Second, starting two rookies at WR was a huge factor in his struggles. Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but the last team to try that was the 2000 Bengals with Peter Warrick and Ron Dugans. That didn’t work out so well either. And you forgot the garbage pass protection, the 22nd ranked run game, piss-poor return game, and bottom-ranked run D. Losing Knapp and DeFillipo for Whackit and Tollner didn’t help either. Like I said though, damn good, balanced synopsis overall.

    You are 100% correct Debo, and that leads to the obvious fact that Jamarcus was fired for what he did Monday through Saturday, not what he did on Sunday.

    How many times are you going to contradict yourself before you realize this?

  • Gust372

    Just Fire Baby, most companies today do not fire people, even for coming into work drunk. They will almost always give you the option of rehab. Too many avenues for the employee to sue. All it takes is one phone call to a lawyer, that most fired employees will make because they’ve got nothing to lose. So, rehab it usually is, and back on the job. Second offenses might lead to more terminations. That’s reality. Not the stupid scenario that irjonny or whoever came up with.

  • Gust372

    irjonny you dumbass you can just do your own research. If you work for some mom and pops lawn mower repair business and you know they’d fire you for being on drugs, then good for them. But most large companies today, including the one I work for, will give you the option of rehab first, in almost every situation.;

    I:’m telling you, you are living in the past! Your ridiculous scenario about hiring someone to do a job at your home and that person being high or whatever does not apply to what we’re talking about, big companies and their drug policies. Almost all of them put you in rehab on the first offense.

    The Raiders had a different idea. Pretend Russell is fine, knowing he wasn’t. Bring in a bunch of people to babysit him. And, roll the dice. We all know the rest.

    ❶ Big difference working for a company like McD’s or wallmart and being an employee in the entertainment biz making millions.
    ❷ Some of these team owners pay out millions and expect you to be responsible. Why should they have to worry about your addictions. You sign a contract for millions and are expected to perform. Period. Big difference than working at a burger joint or a check-out line where you don’t sign a contract for millions.
    ❸ Why should Coach Davis have had to put JR through re-hab when JR could have afforded his own treatment? Most people who get into trouble have to pay for their own treatment. Why should Coach pay for it. He didn’t supply JR with the drank.
    ❹ The Raiders fall under the umbrella of the nfl. The nfl should have taken responsibility for JR and his problems since they are the ones with the ‘drug’ policy anyway. But their lack of action is just another underhanded deal towards the Raiders like everything thing else they do against the Raiders.
    ❺ Players are supposed to be professionals. Thats why they get paid like they do. Some of them need to act accordingly. The Raiders are not in the ‘babysitting’ business.

    So I guess the Raiders had to let Russell play it out so they could fire him and sue him for cause and hopefully Coach gets some of his money back. Still a sad story, but most are anyway.

  • Gust372

    MB, I meant most companies today don’t fire people for substance abuse, even if they come into work drunk. I work for a large company. If you’ve never had a problem at work due to substance abuse, you can drive your car into the building while drunk, and they’ll give you the option of rehab. Doesn’t seem right, but it’s just how it is today. Companies are going to do the safest thing possible. Al Davis does things his way because he lives in a bubble. He has complete control of his company and isn’t at the mercy of any officers or partner, etc. Leave it up to some dumb Raider fans to think that all businesses are ran like the Raiders.

    My bad. I was under the impression you were blaming Coach Davis for Russells ills. Sorry you wasted your entire day, when silly me just hopped in here after a nine hour day of college baseball double headers and wanted a few laughs before taking a break from work. Didn’t mean for you to get so offended.

    Your usually the trouble maker who sniffs an avenue to create arguments so you can spin some kind of rant or ideology for no other reason than to argue and call someone names, so again, my bad for wrecking your entire days work.

    So RMR, I’ll try and be a little more careful next time I debate with you. If you were as smart as you say you are, you’d know I was being sarcastic saying the nfl should help Russell, not blaming him. You seem to still twist words as usual. And keep blaming Coach for whatever reason. He’ll be holding the Lombardi next Super Bowl.

    I don’t see any starting spots open for our 2nd rd pick on the Oline or the front 7.

    Really not happy with our FB position for what it’s NUMBER ONE job duty is. I understand the “threat” that he poses to the other team from a passind standpoint, but like Mike Vrable said “he blocks like a WR”. Move Reece to TE like most other fat WRs in the league.

    Rd 2 – S
    Rd 3 – FB
    Rd 4 – DT
