Draft picks issued numbers

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Monday, May 9th, 2011 at 1:10 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Ordinarily, the Raiders rookie draft picks have already had their first minicamp or be preparing for their first one.

Not so in the year of the lockout, where there apparently will be no ruling today on the stay which put the work stoppage back in place after about a day of the NFL being open for business.

For what it’s worth, rookie draft picks have been assigned numbers according to the team roster on Raiders.com. They are as follows:

72 Joe Barksdale
35 CB Chemdi Chekwa
82 TE Richard Gordon
86 WR David Ausberry
17 WR Denarius Moore
38 CB DeMarcus Van Dyke
61 C Stefen Wisniewski

Wisniewski wore No. 61 in college at Penn State.

No. 76, the number worn by Steffen’s uncle, Steve Wisniewski, will become available once Robert Gallery moves on.

But while Steffen said he welcomed having to live up to the legacy of his uncle, the plan didn’t include wearing his uniform number.

“I don’t think I can take that one, no. That’s his number. I’ll find my own,” Wisniewski said.

Actually, it’s not his number. The Raiders don’t retire uniform numbers.

    Thanks JHill

    That’s hyperbole. This O-line struggled at the onset of last year, because Cable kept experimenting with the its pieces, trying to mask the weak spots. But the year wasn’t a complete waste as we found out which guys are keepers and which guys are superflous.

    I don’t welcome 5 new starters on our O-line. Continuity of the line has to be kept at least to start, and new guys like Barksdale worked into the rotation as they get thier footing.

    Traditionally the O-line is the toughest position to learn in the NFL. D-coordinators spend umpteen hours of film study looking for any weakness to exploit. And they will find that weakness, no doubt. And just when you got a lineman that is coached up and “smart”, he starts to break down physically. It’s always a rotation of new ones, coaching them up, watching them break down, rinse/repeat. Tough job assignment.

  • J Hill

    I think what I am most looking forward to is our Oline not being overmatched physically.

    I understand these young guys will make mistakes, but at least they won’t just get punked into the backfield like a blocking sled.

  • guest123

    But it wont matter if you are Hercules himself, if you don’t understand technique, the other guy can get his arm under your pad and out-leverage you and push away. These young guys, strong as bulls, but not up to speed on the tricks of the trade of DE’s and LB’s will be humbled until they figure it out.

  • J Hill

    Guest,

    Who would you say is a keeper on the Oline?

    Loper, Veldheer, and Campbell were all here last year, so it’s not like we are bringing in 5 new guys.

    Our C is a FA who the coach doesn’t like, and our RT is also a FA who might retire. We only have 2 “new” guys to our Oline group in Wiz and Barksdale.

  • J Hill

    Bruce Campbell practiced against Seymour, Kelly, and Henderson for a full year.

    Wiz comes from good coaching in Joe Pa and I’m sure he’s picked up a few things from his namesake and being arond the Raiders.

    I don’t know much about Barksdale, but I don’t even see another option on the roster.

  • guest123

    Veldheer is the only guy I feel good about at LT. From there, I hope and am rooting for Campbell to take the RG spot. I’d like Mario to try the RT spot and platoon in Barksdale slowly until he’s ready. I think we need a FA LG, as I don’t feel that Loper is the answer. I like situation at center as Wiz II/Satele provides depth and strength up the middle.

    I am happy to say bye bye to Barnes, Walker (unconditionally) and to Henderson if he either fails to progress at RT or doesn’t want to accept a meager one year deal.

    Ideally, we sign 2 FA OL and let them compete for one spot.

  • hwnrdr

    I just hope that Coach Wyllie and Wiz coach those guys up. JC needs to be protected, as long as holes need to be made for whoever runs behind that line. I hope we don’t digress in that area…

  • Bauce Rules

    Kobe<————–super snitch. This is who Laker fans adore lol. Now I know what Bynum meant when he said there are trust issues on the team. No one now will wanna come to LA and play with Kobe. This guy is a loser and deserves death

  • http://www.raiders.com/ r8eray

    Its on RIGHT NOW!!!

  • http://www.raiders.com/ r8eray

    Campbell is training 2 times a week with trainers and throwing balls to receivers….they are organizing more activities as we speak!

  • http://www.raiders.com/ r8eray

    He’s saying about half of the team will be there practicing… Seymour has alot to do with this practice.
    Kelly, McFadden, Ford, DHB, to name a few.

  • hwnrdr

    Sorry Bauce…can’t really say Lakers fans because I am a Lakers fan, but NOT a Kobe fan! I will be one after he’s gone…although I do know people who are Kobe fans and will cease to be Lakers fans after he leaves or retires…

  • http://www.raiders.com/ r8eray

    Campbell is saying there is a chance Nnamdi will be back!

  • http://www.raiders.com/ r8eray

    He’s talking about the tension in the locker room with Grad being Cable’s guy!!

    Ur moms in my prayers and my favorite Lakers are Bynum and Odom….Kobe has grown on me over the years, i used to hate him.

    When Cable was there..

  • J Hill

    ——————————————————

    LOL!

  • http://www.cnn.com RAIDER

    Bynum deserves the stiffest punishment possible but Dallas was running up the score. That’s what happens when you run it up.

  • http://www.cnn.com RAIDER

    Bauce, I’m pretty sure Laker fans adore Kobe for the 5 titles, and pretty much having been the best player in the league for the past decade, as well as for him being a snitch…

  • J Hill

    my favorite Lakers are Bynum

    ——————————————————

    Pretty good chance he’s in Orlando or NO next year.

  • hwnrdr

    Thanks Severe…I agree with you…Kobe has grown on me also, I was just saying that I was a fan before Kobe and will be one long after he’s gone…but gosh, do you remember the Eddie Jones years…lol
    RAIDER…Bynum shouldn’t have done that irregardless, he should have at least wack the ball out of Barrea’s hands. Odom actually got hard fouled by Dirk the play before he fouled Dirk and wasn’t called so…but it is what it is….
    As for JC having practice with his guys…good! I hope something positive comes out of it!

  • http://www.cnn.com RAIDER

    Here they come. If you side with the players…you’re a “Marxist”. lol. The flannel wearing, shot gun and lantern wielding talking heads for thew wealthy have arrived.

  • J Hill

    LOL at the whole “snitch” angle.

    In an investigation about groupies, saying we all have groupies = snithcing? LMFAO! Who was it news to? We’re talking rockstars here. He probably had that patented “what, are you stupid” glare at the detective when he said it.

    And Vanessa the Investigator finding out Paula’s dirt and telling his woman is on Kobe?

    LMFAO!

  • Bauce Rules

    Jhill….you seen movie Jungle Fever? Rember Spike telling his wife about Wesley lambing Italian baby? Come on you dont tell your woman that shhhhht ever. Kobe snitched bruh plain and simple and he did it on purpose cuz Kobe is not a dummy

  • Bauce Rules

    Snitchin is not solid under any circumstances. I’m sure we got more than a few snitches on this blog. Be in denial if you want but Kobe let the entire squad down with that punk move. I hate the Lakers but they no biz losing this series to Dallas under normal times. Amazing anyone can defend him. This is twice now

  • Bauce Rules

    Anyhow check yall later

  • J Hill

    Vanessa is a snake, B.

    I highly doubt Kobe wanted to sabatoge what is probably his last best chance to win a ring by sending Gasoft into I lost my girlfriend mode. That doesn’t make any sense at all.

    Meanwhile it is well known around So Cal what a B Vanessa is, and how jealous and childish she is with all the other Laker wives. If she isn’t top B, she’s pouting. REAL jealous she didn’t get a reality show and Odom did, lol.

    I mean, a real punk byiotch if ever there was one.

  • DMAC

    Morning peoples!

  • JB

    From a Rich Gannon tweet:

    Love the fact that Jason Campbell and Richard Seymour are organizing player only workouts for the Raiders! Huge step. Leadership Baby!!!

    Now if we can only get some Gannon’s leadership abilities to rub off on JCampbell.

    Who says Gannon doesn’t still care? Too Bad AD has a problem with RG. He could really help mold JCampbell into a real winner.

    LMAO at Soul Glow

    Isn’t that from the Eddie Murphy movie Coming to America?

  • DutchRaider77

    Sorry about that news Hwnrdr. My thoughts to you and yours.

    That Louis Murphy thing is so stupid. If he would have just cooperated in the first place nothing would have happened. He had to be a tough guy and be above the law. He doesnt get to question whether the cop had the right to bust him, thats the courts job. He should get a minimum 4 game suspension JUST for resisting arrest.

    _____________________________________________________

    That is crap! Murphy was charged with “non-violent” resisting arrest. Also the reason he was pulled over was for loud music, which is an offense that is up to the Officer’s discretion. The really stupidity on Murphy’s part was allowing the police to search his car volunteerily, but then again most people would not get charged for possession of viagra.

    Sorry, not trying to call you, I just see it differently. I got pulled over when I was younger for playing music too “loud,” it was my Mom’s car and the cheapest stock stereo on the planet.

  • Silverandblack666

    Law enforcement has become revenue generators for the state. They are not competent enough to solve real crimes so they have become glorified meter maids.

    If you want see a 17 year old kid busted for smoking a cigarette, cut down some pot plants, or dole out tickets for running a red light these lackeys are great at that. But if you have a missing child or need or find a serial killer these losers are no good at solving real crimes.

    I have no respect for these turds as the government has dug into my pocket book enough I don’t need a fine for having expired tabs or not wearing my seatbelt, I have gave the damn state enough of my money!

    ************
    Yeah? Its not crap at all. The officers discretion was that the stereo was too loud. He was in an Escalade. The bottom of the line factory stereo in that vehicle is pretty damn loud. My brother owns one. I realize that its all BS charges, Murph should have simply pulled over took the loud music ticket (had he cooperated he likely would have simply been told to turn it down) and fought it in court if he truly felt he wasnt wrong. He could not produce the prescription, and the label was scratched off the bottle, which is why he was charged with the Viagra possession. So long as he produces the prescription that will get dropped in court, and quite simply he DID resist arrest. He refused to pull over for an officer. He is an idiot and should be treated accordingly.
