Raider rumor mill whirling


Profootballtalk.com checked in this morning with an item that Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick is the first quarterback on the Raiders’ draft board.

Former Raiders’ exec Mike Lombardi is convinced Al Davis has zeroed in on Colorado cornerback Jimmy Smith.

More to come, to be sure, so why is it I suspect the Raiders won’t be able to trade into the first round because the asking price will be too high?

Media starting to trickle in to the facility for what could be a long evening of nothing if Oakland doesn’t trade swing a deal to get into Round 1.

    Nick Fairley will make the probowl before Dareus. Guaranteed. This is the exact same thing as McCoy vs Suh last year. I was 100% right on Suh. Fairley big time delivered in big games.

    They take whatever little suspense there is out of the draft now by showing the player who’s going to be drafted crying on the phone before the pick is announced. Duh.

  • Bengals select….Blaine Gabbert

  • or AJ Green

    Al, if you are going to trade up, then forget that project QB and the drug addict CB…pick Pouncey.

    I had Browns picking Green

  • Dakota

    This will be the best pick in the draft on the offensive side of the ball. AJ Green.

    smart pick by the buffalo chips dareus 3-4 nose tackle should help the run defense right away, i would have taken peterson because of the trouble with defending against brady and sanchez

    Good move by the Bengals. Palmer stays now. Watch.
