The Raiders conclude their exhibition season with a road game against the Seattle Seahawks on Aug. 29 at 7 p.m. The date and time for the Raiders exhibition game against the Chicago Bears has yet to be determined, though it will be played between the Saints and Seahawks games.

    @dr_robert

    So what are you saying?

    Draft OT in round 1….or

    Since many teams need a top-flight OT, then it will be easy to trade down?

    Guys that can’t stay on their teams are not going to get drafted by the Raiders. Take that to the bank. Tyrann Mathieu looking your way here…..

  • Macho Man Randy Savage

    If we pick 3rd I sure as hell would rather have an OT than a DT. But then again, Im gonna get excited even if we pick a punter. wooooohooooo!

    Smoke Screens, Reggie is all about Smoke Screens

  • Marks hair

    Could be a smokescreen. I’ve heard a lot of players say certain teams didn’t attend their Pro days or talk to him personally and then out of nowhere they grab them on draft day.. never know

    So, if one believes in fate, here goes. . .

    I sat in the waiting room in my doctor’s office. I forgot my Iphone in the car, so I was forced to consult their reading matter.

    Even though they are the caregiver’s for the local hockey & lacross teams I had a hard time finding pertinent reading material

    Lo & behold I found a copy of SI with Andres Luck (Napoleon Dynamite) on the cover.

    This edition was in mailboxes on December 2 of this past year.

    The first article I came to was about Ziggy Ansah, the DE from BYU. . .

    Nuff said. . .the Raiders trade down to, say, the # 7 pick (ironically from Arizona, the current home of that renowned football mercenary, Carson Palmer. So the Cards offer their second round pick & the #7 selection for the rights to move up four spots & claim, well, whomever (hopefully not Eric Fisher) & Reg then reclaims the second round selection Cincy fleeced from Hue Jack (Hue got jacked!!1 LOL. . .). . .

    Just reading the potential tea leaves, although I want the Raiders to realize how gifted Fisher is & tab him thenselves, giving the Raiders potentially one of the best bookends of OT’s in the NFL. . .screw the lost draft pick. Sometimes talent speaks higher volumns than quantity. . .something about quality over quantity. . .

    I’m happy that the new GM won’t be drafting DHB and Mike Mitchell type players.

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

    A lot of players are flying around draft boards like its moving day at the city college. Not a lot of consensus as to who is #1-10. This is a very interesting draft. Teams that really do their homework will be the ones that do the best in this draft. Thank God Al is not here to wing it. (God rest his soul).

  • dr_robert

    Dutch–

    Well that’s an interesting question isn’t it?

    On the one hand, trading down could get u two or three more solid-to-good players. But do they add up to the effect a top tackle would have?

    Depends on Reggie’s take on those tackles and his take on others in the draft.

    And his draft strategy.

    Personally, I love the idea of getting a great OT and adding so wine like Barrett jones in the third. Now ur line has fisher, veldheer, wiz, and jones. 4/5 of a very good OL. Now figure out who’s a keeper out of brisiel, bergstrom, and nix.

    The way they to do it is break the board down into tiers.

    Lets say u think there are 8 elite guys. And then 12 very good players. And then 16 good ones.

    Then u circle guys in each group that u really would like.

    Where do u think they’ll go? If u trade down, will u nab multiple “circled” guys?

    Draft strategy dictates everything.

    Does Reggie WANT an OT? Does he consider those three elite?

    I’m just saying if u want an elite tackle, this is a good year to get one. And we are in prime position to get one.

  • PurpleDrank81

    Why draft Floyd? He seems like an Intellectual kid but he doesnt love the game and thats an issue with me. Has admitted several times that Football isnt his favorite sport and didnt even watch Football until 5 years ago. It’s not like he was raised in Ghana and didnt get to watch TV. He lived in the USA. Also he doesnt impress at all on tape.

    AVOID FLOYD
    AVOID FLOYD

    ESETERIK78 @ post #144 I couldn’t agree more. . .I’ve maintained that posture from day one. . .the past was mortgaged some time back & Reg is just engaging in an old fashioned political purge (think Joseph Stalin), only this one makes sense. . .does anyone actually think all that wasted space would have renegotiated their contracts & miraculiously started to perform to their lofty salary levels? Duh!

    What is amazing about this place is people can be talking Raiders,having good conversations,then,boom,all at once these naysayers show up.Maybe there aren’t that many,it’s just someone having what they consider a good time.
    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    Orrrrrrrrrrr…….it’s really one poster using several different names so it looks like he has sympathizers.LOL

  • http://ibabuss.com antispy3

    Floyd, likw the WVA QB is a smoke screen.

    The Raiders love Eric Fisher. ..& hopefully get the opportunity to prove so. . .

  • DJ Johnny

    After watching the Flynn video of the Pats game again he looks small…although he isn’t necessarily. Same height and a little more weight actually than Rodgers, but I’m really not impressed.

    He threw a pick 6 and then a big int. late and a big fumble at the end.

    There were some good things too.

    I really hope Pryor is as good as he thinks he is.

  • bigsnow81

    Hopefully not those type in the first and second round.

    just looked like a guy. if there were no names or numbers I would’ve had no clue he was a top prospect.

  • Marks hair

    I’m actually looking forward to this draft.. I was always filled with dread knowing al was gonna fuçk me in the 1st rd.. and usually the 2nd.. I’m not sure reg is gonna fùck me.. there’s hope for a tight bùtthole.

  • http://ibabuss.com antispy3

    Preaching to the choir @ post #168. . .quality over quantity in an under talented overall draft. . .

    If you choose Fisher & the Raiders go onto possessing one of the most elite Olines in the NFL that has to trumph a bunch of “pretty good country ballplayers. . .”

    Especially against the Denvers & KC’s of the AFC West. . .

  • araiderso

    new post fellas

  • dr_robert

    There’s no reason for a smoke screen regarding star. It wouldn’t do anything. Everyone knows about star. He’s not a guy people will trade up do or that will likely go before us.

    The raiders just haven’t shown that they are considering him.

    They have looked at Joekel and ansah and Jordan and fisher and Floyd. Basically they have looked at all of the top players EXCEPT star.

    He didn’t play in ’09 due to lack of passion for the game.

    DA and Reggie have made one thing clear. They have repeatedly talked of wanting players who love the game

    I think star is off their board.

  • bigsnow81

    I will be happy with Fisher.

    Na, if you were paying attention you would have noticed I spell it correct most of the time but sometimes I’m just too lazy to get of my butt and type it right or is that rite?

  • JLofty

    So after we draft a tackle @3 or trade down for numerous picks….
    We need a pass rusher still and some help at WR, TE, and DB, mainly safety. Depth at LB.

    Man I REALLY hope Ausberry is taking his chance to play for us to the 10/10ths. Need some playmakers….

    Abraham for a year or two? Maybe a two year backloaded with some bonus to spread it over next yr too?

    “He’s doing the job. Yeah, he’s my guy. I’ve never wavered from that. He’s the only guy I’ve hired. Well, I traded for Carson Palmer, but (McKenzie) decided he was not part of the long-term plan, and I’m O.K. with that.”
