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 the Norv update?
    Is he our OC yet, or has he found another gig?

    Rumored to go to NY Jets…funny is that they still have their OC in place, but Ryan wants him

    I’ll see what I can reel in

  • DJ Johnny

    Knapp is a curious case. After reading that bumbling transcript from his last presser when he used the injuries to the running backs as his excuse for the running game, and then cited how proud he was the running game had improved recently, but it was the fill ins for the injured players who were the ones producing.

    So, the injuries that were the cause of the running game woes (in his statement) were actually what caused them to improve and made him proud.

    Makes no sense.

    Reggie and DA must have heard or read that and thought “WTH”?

  • DMAC

    All I know is DA better not fk this up again!!!
    We need to make a good hire.

  • jesusraiderjim

    That sounds promising. Go Raiders

    Dakota is having an AWESOME conversation with himself on the other post.

    So valid points I might add.

  • hwnrdr

    LOL….

  • PurpleDrank81

    So who do you want as an OC?

    Pep Hamilton
    Aaron Kromer
    Jim Tressel (No Way It Happens)

  • DMAC

    I think we’ll trade out the top 10 spot.
    We have too many holes to fill in.

    So Dakota, do you think Hue will be an NFL HC again?
    Dakota Says:
    January 7th, 2013 at 10:31 am

    Well Dakota, obviously I think Hue can impress in an interview, so obviously he can get another HC gig, if, obviously, he can get some interviews. Hue obviously has some potential.
    Dakota Says:
    January 7th, 2013 at 10:31 am

    Dakota, why should we draft Joeckel when we have so many holes on the defense

  • DMAC

    Hue for OC!
    Draft all defense and a RT

  • Purvisman/Intrepid// Full Disclosure

    Should we tell manassamauler? He just jumped on.

  • PurpleDrank81

    There’s a better chance that Mistic becomes a Carson Palmer Fanboy than Hue returning to Oakland…

    I think on offense, if we have a competent OC we will be alot better.

    The glaring need I see (everybody has their own take) is at the reciever positions.

    Waaaaay too many drops. If it wasn’t thrown directly in the hands of the receivers it would get dropped or tipped and intercepted. Guys would not make plays…period. No fighting for the ball, or coming back to it to bail Palmer out when he was under duress.

    For the 1st time all yr. I saw another team look as bad as we did at receiver and that’s the Colts.

    It was horrible the way they were dropping balls at the most critical times.

    4th an 4 with the game and season on the line and Luck tosses a simple little play towards the sideline and it goes right thru the receivers hands.

    Only time all yr i’ve seen a team be as bad as the Raiders in that regard.

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

    Great points DJ, our WR’s were not a strength. I thought they would be going in but everyone regressed minus Myers. DMAC was horrible catching passes this year as well.

    Anyway to do this without alerting RaiderDebo?

  • theghostronin79

    Tressel DID have alot of success at OSU, but man…He’s ULTRA conservative. Even more than Knapp I’d say. No Flash and Dash in his Play sheet.

    Off tackle Right,
    Off tackle Left,
    Post

    Rinse and repeat.

  • DMAC

    Why start all over, when Hue can take over 2day and have our offense running?

  • Purvisman/Intrepid// Full Disclosure

    It’s pretty early for Debo.

    Hue has to much Pride to come in and work under the guy who took his job…

    I change my stance on this DAILY……
    Today I’m saying we use our #3 pick, and trade player(s) for a 2nd rounder.

    I see. Debo is there. My lips are sealed!
