Raiders staff to coach North in Senior Bowl

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Thursday, January 3rd, 2013 at 3:33 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen and his staff will coach the North team in the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., according to the Senior Bowl web site.

The South team will be coached by Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz and his staff.

Coaching the Senior Bowl will in theory give the Raiders a leg up on scouting some of the country’s best senior talent heading into the scouting combine Feb. 20-26 in preparation for the NFL draft from April 25-27.

The Raiders at present hold the No. 3 overall pick in the draft.

“It’s a great opportunity for the Raiders,’’ Allen said in a Senior Bowl release. “It gives us a chance to get a solid evaluation on these players. We get a better feel on them because we see them in meetings, we work with them in practice and we can determine whether their personality will fit well in our locker room.

“It’s an opportunity to get an in-depth feel on a lot of those guys.’’

The Senior Bowl is scheduled for Jan. 26 at 1 p.m. at Ladd Peebles Stadium in Mobile.

The Raiders and Lions staffs will conduct practices throughout the week.

    Whats a better position?
    OC or quality coach or whatever the fk he is?
    Plus you come back home.

    Yes, I see your point…but…Will Reggie take him back? Remember, after he fired Hue, Hue kinda ripped him…
    I would be surprised

  • hwnrdr

    Also, Guest mentioned something about RGIII possibly missing the whole 2013 season! OUCH!

    Greg Jenning’s reunting with Joe Philbin is very possible.

    Hue coming back would be Reggie admitting he made a mistake and also Hue coming back means Hue would have to swallow his pride and come back to a lower position than he held last time.

    That’s alot of pride in 1 building…. You’d need Jenna Jameson to SWALLOW that much pride

  • hwnrdr

    I know…that is funny!

  • jesusraiderjim

    God I love the people on this blog.

    Unabounded humor.

    LOL…I don’t think Tito would like that though!

  • REALLIONAIREB

    No knock on the brudda RGIII but they are just fine with Cousins…his trade value will rise when he shows he has that it factor when it comes to QB’s

  • The Big Banana

    So who is DA waiting for? No rats inside the building?

  • PurpleDrank81

    2nd ACL Injury in RG3′s Career. Finishing your rookie career with your 2nd ACL Injury for a guy who relies on his feet… I really hope this kid can stay healthy. He’s a great talent with a great head on his shoulders but sometimes your body just wont let you do what your heart wants it to do.

  • DMAC

    Will the Raiders be taking a close look at Te’o 2nite?
    Could be the QB of our defense.
    We are sorely lacking a motivator on the D.
    Wouldn’t mind seeing him in silver and black.

  • PurpleDrank81

    Te’o is the type of player were looking for but I just dont see it with the 3rd pick… I really like him but I wouldnt take him before pick 6

  • REALLIONAIREB

    Word

  • DMAC

    Our new QB on the D for years……..

  • DMAC

    We need a beast pass rusher!
    Avril and Johnson (bengals)
    Both young and pretty damn good.
    Avril may be a costly though.

  • PurpleDrank81

    Beast Pass Rushers will instantly give our DB’s a break

  • DMAC

    Should we bring back Carter?

    you betch-yer ARSE they’ll be looking at Te’o tonight. As we should be.

  • Raider-in-PA

    Definitely would rather have Jenna Jameson swallowing than Hue…lol

    Wonder if she knows anything about football…

  • theghostronin79

    IF Te’o ends up having a Lewis / Urlacher effect on whatever team he goes to, you really think it’ll matter where we took him, if we did?

    31 other teams (looking back) would have taken Lewis #1 overall, if given the chance. And of course, if they’d known what he would be.

  • Raider-in-PA

    #117.. He!!s to the yeah!! Dont care how old he is, dude can play… speaking along those lines, London Fletcher is a beast!!

  • hwnrdr

    Yes, Fletcher can at least tell the Niners D that he did what they couldn’t in Seattle…Catch Russell Wilson…lol…

  • theghostronin79

    WhoEVER we take at #3 isn’t going to break the bank anyway. All that needs to be decided is “What do we need more?”

    A Captian of our Defense? Or elite pass rush?

  • hwnrdr

    I’ll be looking at Te’o tonight as well! Making sure he may be worth the #3 or not! But if Moore is off the board, I say we take Te’o, or vice versa!

  • jesusraiderjim

    Dakota is a one man comedy show on the other post. Funny shvt!!!

    I’m going w/ captain 2day, but may change my mind.

  • PurpleDrank81

    I just worry about Teo’s Lateral speed. The guy racked up alot of Tackles but 50% of those were Assisted. He does have an eye for the ball and has alot of heart but all I hear is that he’s a giant leader but doesnt leads by hid words but his actions on the field buttttttt thats the same thing I heard about McClain. Sorry if I get freaked out about taking a LB so low but McClain has scarred me and we have so many needs at so many positions that trading down mite benefit us alot more.

  • PurpleDrank81

    I hope Te’o has a excellent game tonight but I’ll still be rooting for Alabama

  • DMAC

    You guys see (undrafted) Burfict play for the Bungles?
    Could of drafted him in place of Stupar.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    How long has it been since we’ve had a rookie provide an immediate impact on Defense? I’d say not since C Woodson in 98. Hope Te’o is the man.

    =======================

    Somebody compared the 2 earlier this year….

    Romac : Picture of him smiling that cheezy grin while in hand cuffs..

    Te’o : Picture of him In the stands cheering for his little sisters volleyball game.

    Totally different character molds these 2.

    New Post???

  • John David Booty

    Teo is good. A little overhyped for my tastes, but I know how those things go. Hes going to be solid in the NFL, but I dont see him being Patrick Willis for a team in need of a MLB. Again, not knocking Teo, love his instincts, but hes just not an elite player to me and I cant see taking him 3.

    If we took Teo 3, ehh, Id be disappointed by the reach, but Id accept that we picked up a solid player.

    However, Id much rather pick Star 3, because him and Desmond Bryant together will be tough for any O-line.

    My solution for MLB instead of Teo? Sign FA Rey Maualuga. Id like to see Rey cleaning up behind Star and Bryant in the middle.
