Raiders finally add a DT

By Steve Corkran
Saturday, April 27th, 2013 at 2:35 pm in Oakland Raiders.

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.

    Pretty sure I hooked up with Nickayla at a UCLA frat party a while back

    Or at least with chick who looked like her (and her friend, menage a trois style)

    Was totally hammered and she came up and just grabbed the Lawg and asked if there was anywhere private we could go to make out and talk about a possible relationship

    Guess y’all know how that story ends, heh heh heh

    You’re right, with major intercourse

    BOOYAH

    What is it with poor timing? Every time the Raiders are to pick they go to commercial. It’s getting to be a “planned break”. That kind of disrespect needs to change.

    At one point, 6-3, 308-pound McGee was ranked Top 15 defensive tackle coming out of high school. Good foot speed for three-technique

    Positives
    Butler is a long athlete with a tall, slender frame. He is a smooth strider with long legs and arms. It is hard to tell whether he has great acceleration or not because of how limited he gets used at SDSU. Butler made a vertical play against Hawaii that looked great, he ran the seam and went up over the defender to get the ball for a score. He has average hands as he allowed the ball to get too far into his body in that throw, but there was no defender around. He can go up and get the ball in jump ball situations. He is a willing blocker but it is an area of the game to improve as he is not physical.
    Negatives
    Butler is not an elite pass catcher and he doesn’t have great hands. He allows the ball to get too close to his frame where he will fight it. Butler is not going to handle the press at the LOS well at all, as he is thin and he will get pressed all over the field. Butler lacks short area quickness and the ability to separate from corners because of his long legs. He has a long stride and is not a player who will start/stop easily. He has a very thin frame and there have to be concerns about his ability to handle the punishment he is going to take in the NFL. There is very little production from his entire college career. Butler seems to be an afterthought in this offense as he is rarely targeted.
    Analysis
    Butler should be so much more productive than he is with his size/speed combination but the results just aren’t there. He is a very raw prospect with long legs and arms. He has a very long stride and it takes him a few steps to get up to full speed, and there is very little short area quickness. He is not a very polished route runner and he doesn’t have the short area quickness that could set him apart from other receivers. He is not a physical player and teams are going to press him because he can’t fight through it. At this time, Butler is a vertical threat only and nothing more. Butler deserves sixth-round consideration at this time because of his ability to attack the defense vertically and his size/speed combination.

    Sounds like DHB Part II, but we only spent a seventh-rounder on him. More realistically, another ST guy.

    A raw size/speed player going to Oakland, just after a DT with former legal trouble? Are we sure Al Davis is actually dead?

    Love how Jaws mentioned DHB like he is a super star. I remember when he bashed us for the pick.

  • Priesttj12

    The HB they drafted is biult like Eric Dickerson obviously not that kind of talent but he is very entriguing. I saw him play a bit he’s not as quick and fast but they did rely on him as their best back.

    Brice Butler caught 65 passes and scored seven touchdowns in his four seasons at San Diego State. Could see him moving to cornerback.

  • Chris in NY

    This from a good buddy of mine who I used to work with who works in the athletic dept at Marist:

    “Really happy for Menelik Watson, getting taken 42nd overall in the NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders! He was fun to be around and treated me great in our two years together at Marist.”

    Also worth noting, I heard on TV the other night that his teammates voted him captain after his first year even though he was just like a 5 ppg guy.

    Nothing but size/speed risers with upside.

  • mistic666

    Looks like Vince young will be a raider.

  • alzadoX

    scouting report a few posts above doesn’t sound like a CB prospect. Longlegged slow change of direction more fast than quick not physical per above report. But you never know if report matches player till you see him with your own eyes
