Raiders pass in supplemental draft

The Raiders selected quarterback Terrelle Pryor in the 2011 supplemental draft. On Thursday, the Raiders passed on the opportunity to select Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon, even though they attended his pre-draft workout.
Gordon was selected by the Cleveland Browns in the second round of the supplemental draft, and he was the only player taken.
The Raiders held the 14th pick of the first round and had only one shot at Gordon, as it turned out. The Browns used the No. 2 pick of the second round to nab Gordon.
Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie has said that he is fond of his draft picks. He, obviously, didn’t feel as if a first-rounder for Gordon was a value pick.
Pryor cost the Raiders their 2012 third-rounder. The Browns now are without their second-round pick for the 2013 NFL draft.
The Raiders apparently are content going into the season with Denarius Moore, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Jacoby Ford, Juron Criner and whoever else emerges from a unit chock full of intriguing prospects.

    I think the NCAA should suspend the Penn State Football program
    ——————————————————-

    Why? Because of one rotten egg you gotta make all the other hard working student/athletes pay for one mans crime? I think they better monitor coaches with a little more scrutiny and discretion and try to weed out the perverts, but don’t make the honest people pay for the sinners disease.

    Penn State is gonna be on the clean up and up now because everyone is gonna be lookin at them and their program real close. Throw the pervert and his accomplices to the wolves, hungry wolves, and let the people continue. I believe the tragedy eventually killed Joe Pa, and hopefully the proverbial sh*t hits the fans with the pedo-ring, and those bastards get drug outta the closet feet first, but again good sir, don’t punish the student/athletes.

    When bowl ineligibility and t.v. bans are handed down to schools, innocent players are collateral damage. Yet the punishment remains. To not punish PSU would actually be to make an exception for them. They’ve been punished enough? Heck, I’d say they’ve gotten away with enough. If you’re concerned about the players, perhaps give them the option of transferring without legal consequences stemming from their letters of intent, etc, and pay for their transportation. Everyone else? I’m sorry. Mere livelihoods are not more important than justice. Adults are responsible for themselves, and that includes career risk. Time for them to either punch up their resume`s, or stick it out with the school until the punishment has been served.

    A very interesting read from ESPN regarding Joe Paterno & the scandal at Penn State.

  • raidertbone

    The NCAA should just shut the mutha down for a year or so. If any team deserved a “death penalty” for transgressions, it’s Penn State, right now. Apologies to all those who get caught in the crossfire, but this is WAY worse than what SMU did over twenty years ago, IMO. Let all the recruits transfer out, then they can start all over again in 2014, once they’ve cleaned up their house. I’m not a Penn State hater – but I do think that the kid victims deserve some strong justice.

  • RAIDERMAN99

    I would rank Branch in the upper echelon of safeties in the NFL. That’s my personal opinion and it’s certainly a debatable contention.

    Is he worthy of a franchise tag ? I’m not sure.

    But I’ll ask again – if you’re not going to completely blow up the Raider defense, if you want to have some semblance of continuity, if you want to retain a young vet that’s played relatively well – if not Branch, then who ?

    I’d say that Branch might be the Raids most dependable defensive asset. I’d rank him as the unit’s best and most reliable tackler. I’d place him as pound for pound the hardest hitter on the defense. Besides Branch, I’d only classify Curry as being a real ‘banger’ on defense – someone that will line you up and knock the snot out of you.

    Branch cartainly has not shown a proclivity for making game changing plays like an Ed Reed or Troy Polamalu, thus far.

    However, Branch brings an element of reliable tackling and physicality. If you’re not going to blow the whole D up and start from scratch, IMO he’s the most viable candidate to build around.

    Me and my girlfriend roll deuces on the kitchen table. We ain’t got nothin to hide. We drink wine, cheap wine, and have guests over for entertainment and serve snacks on paper plates. The we swing on the door. We dry hump the floor. We just have a good time cuz we ain’t ashamed and got nothin to hide. My girlfriend likes me for who I am after that cheating bastard husband of mine came home with crabs. We past that now. We just slurp n burp and lookin forward to some tail gating if you get my drift.
