Raiders finally add a DT

The Raiders used the fourth of their four sixth-round selections on Oklahoma defensive tackle Stacy McGee. They now are down to two seventh-rounders before the NFL draft concludes.
McGee, 6-foot-3 and 308 pounds, has the ability to be a disruptive force. However, he gets dinged for just as many weaknesses as strengths.
He was suspended for the first six games last season for violating university rules. He also had some off-field issues that resulted in two arrests.
This smacks of a typical high-risk, high-reward type pick. If he pans out, great. If not, the Raiders burned only a sixth-round compensatory selection.
McGee is deemed versatile enough to play in the middle in the 4-3 scheme and at end in the 3-4 scheme. The Raiders are thin at defensive tackle after losing Richard Seymour, Tommy Kelly and Desmond Bryant.

    Brice Butler transferred to San Diego State after spending three seasons at USC. Sure it had nothing to do with Lance Kiffin.

    Brice Butler’s father, Bobby, played 12 seasons for the Atlanta Falcons as a defensive back.

    Butler, finally someone us going to give T. Sessions some competition on the practice squad.

    McGee, I hope you realize for you, the NFL stands for not for long, you keep that stupid activity of yours, as a 6th round compensatory selection you are guaranteed to get cut if you do not produce on & off the field.

    TE Brian Leonhardt was a great FA Sign. This kid is tough! He’s a 2X all state wrestler, 4X all state track athlete, NCAA Div II All American, NCAA Academic All American.
