Raiders linked to numerous undrafted free agents

By Steve Corkran
Saturday, April 27th, 2013 at 6:07 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Once the seventh round of the NFL draft ends each year, it’s a mad scramble for the Raiders and the 31 other teams to sign a handful of undrafted free agents. So far, the Raiders have been linked to 10, though none has been confirmed by the Raiders.
So, proceed with caution. This is a fluid situation, and it’s possible that some or all of these players, or agents, jumped the gun in saying they signed with the Raiders.
Here’s the list:

OT John Wetzel, Boston College
WR Conner Vernon, Duke
WR Tim Wright, Rutgers
S Dexter McCoil, Tulsa
P Bobby Cowan, Idaho
WR Sam McGuffie, Rice
RB Deonte Williams, Cal Poly
G Lamar Mady, Youngstown State
C/G Deveric Gallington, Texas Tech
QB Kyle Padron, Eastern Washington

    There is no way TP would yet be a member of this team if they didn’t think he could play the position they would’ve traded him for whatever they could get and used it in this draft……..period

    Just read that the new long snapper played qb in high school. He apparently passes the ball between his legs.

    1) Flynn
    2) Wilson
    3) Pardon
    4) long snapper guy
    5) Pryor

    Pryor can’t. Sling with any consistency.you fukers will have to learn this the hard way.

    If Al Davis made this draft, people would pan it as a typical Al Davis draft. No doubt whatsoever.

    Good draft.
    **********************************
    I said this after the 1st 3 picks it’s as if Big Al was quarterbacking the draft all over again and it picked up steam as the draft went along. LMurray exactly what Al would’ve done. The late WR perfect Big Al pick. The TE’s and LT especially alll HWS to tee.

    I told you guys from day 1 every GM loves HWS there is no such thing as a GM who doesn’t love measurables. Most of these kids will need to be coached up the only difference Reggie has made is he will keep his coaches to develope a program(hopefully) and reduce the amount of cap casualties keeping it so he can keep his own fA………..period

    That is the only difference. Big Al was spending his own money so he could do whatever he wanted no one could tell him NO. So he went a lil haywire at times because money was no object with him. He wanted to win and he wasn’t going to let money get in the way………..that is the only basic differences , keep his coach and spend prudently…………..period

    ___________________________________________________

    good take.

    and i approve of the new thrifty philosophy. we need to build it the right way.

    Who was your favorite NFL team growing up, and did you have a player you rooted for?
    -My favorite NFL team growing up is the Oakland Raiders and the player I always rooted for was Charles Woodson, Tim Brown, Zack Crockett, and Rod Woodson on the raiders and I loved Sean Taylor from the Washington Redskins
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Dexter McCoils’s I tear view in 4/2
    His favorite team is the Raiders and he had 17 INTs the last 3 years?
    I like him!

    What do I think of the draft ?

    I KNOW this much, it’s way too early to know.

    I THINK Reggie screwed up after the Sio pick.

    Didn’t like moving down to pick up an extra 6th.

    Thought we passed on some players that would have helped more than adding WILSON.

    If WILSON turns out to be a good NFL QB, Reggie can’t be criticized. But if he turns out to be a developmental 3rd stringer, not so good. We could have brought in a vet QB and got a better player in the 4th.

    The trade down from 3 to 12 hinges on Hayden being a stud and the monster from Manchester realizing his potential.

    We could wing up regretting not going with Lane Johnson or gambling on Ansah.

    Not happy that more wasn’t done to get an edge rush or a WR, but there’s only so many picks.

    Only time will tell how Reggie did.

    I know one thing Reggie fkd up on big time and has yet to correct…

    I would disagree with 4-12. This team is already better than last year and will be at least 7-9 and possibly 8-8

    =========

    Good thing none of those teams in the league are “already better than last year” after today.

  • SnBG

    I don’t think there’s going to be much of a QB competition… if there really even is one… because Flynn has more accuracy and he received a fairly good payday.DA also said they would have some packages for Pryor which says to me, backup. I don’t think Pryor has enough game to take the job from Flynn. The Raiders are going to run some form of the WCO which fits Flynn better than it fits Pryor.

    Regarding QB what have they said? Competition with Flynn starting out at #1. Why can’t we just believe what they say. “Cream will rise to the top” Let it play out. I honestly do not know who will win out. Pryor has the most potential though because of his freakish arm, speed, strength and size and passion to succeed. Flynn has the highest floor because of his technique and footwork and known accuracy. Wilson at least we can call him tough – LOL. I do think Wilson can go no higher than #2 this year.

    Wilson was the REAL DEAL in 2011.

  • Follow the B@uceman

    Months ago I suggested getting rid of Palmer

    My idea was to have a vet QB and a drafted rookie compete along with Pryor for starter…..thank god Reggie saw this as the most viable way to build an offense going forward. Wilson isnt a bad selection at all.

    Not gonna lie and say I’m not disappointed in Reggie letting run stuffing NTs roll past us repeatedly. The Dt we got in 7th will do nada and is a UT at best. Didnt like Sparano getting nod in 2nd round having us miss on Damontre Moore but very happy we got a guy I been touting as a 5th or 6th rounder at DE. David Bass is a RDE and quite a steal. What the fk is the point in getting DJ Hayden if he doesnt have a fierce DE in front? Promise you that Bass is better than any DE we have on the roster

    Sio Moore is a good pick I cant lie. At SAM linebacker he brings tenacity and coverage ability that we have been lacking at that position for years. Blitzing this guy will help alot in our efforts to get an attacking defense

    The two tight ends are ok I suppose. That spells end for Ausberry and Gordon thats for sure. Kasa is a pac 12 guy so I approve of it…..Mychal Rivera cant block at all but can be a weapon in pass game

    Latavius Murray is a big back but I dont know what we will do there

    No comment on England tea and crumpets RT….I’ll just say at least it will end Khalif Barnes as starter

    Overall not a bad draft but I dont think we hit as many homers as people claim. I woulda went different directions at some rounds. We didnt address the FS position and didnt address the NT spot. Still gonna have a few issues in 2013. Reggie you still gotta prove yourself because you havent sold me yet

  • mistic666

    Wilson has the arm and the balls to win the job.but Flynn. Will likely start. Wilson and pyrotechnics can’t. Both remain on the team then. PRINT THAT FUKERS

    Pryor – sliding down chart, will really need a huge pre-season to advance

    Wilson – has the prerequiste arm and Mayock gushed about him at Senior Bowl

    Flynn – has to seize the moment.

    reminds me a little of Steve Young who did OK in the WCO.When Young was with LA he was almost running up field before he got the snap.Whiners had to break four
    years worth of bad habits….worked out for them OK.

  • mistic666

    Geno might HATE NY.but its his team

  • RaiderRockstar

    only way Pryor gets CUT is if some undrafted rookie beats him out..

    trade is possible though if they get to OTA’s and are dead set against giving him a shot to compete for the starting job with Flynn & Wilson (Reggie’s guys)

    When Jon Gruden said “I also feel like every once in a while you need some characters. You need a couple guys that are a little off the beaten path, maybe guys that live in the left lane to a degree.” Reggie McKenzie took him seriously…

    Raiders selected Oklahoma DT Stacy McGee with the No. 205 overall pick.
    McGee (6-foot-3, 308) is an off-field trainwreck, having been arrested two Februaries ago on marijuana charges and again last December for DUI. He started 15 games for the Sooners and tallied 9.5 career tackles for loss to go with 2.5 sacks. McGee is a former four-star recruit with plenty of talent but far more baggage

    Scouting reports vary. The consensus on him, however, is McGee showed up during the big games.

  • mistic666

    #2 QB SHOULD BE A vet.

  • RAIDERMAN99

    Oh yeah, one other thing for all you TP bashers to chew on…

    Before this draft there was some talk in here about what TP could fetch in a trade.

    The TP bashers said we couldn’t get schit for him, perhaps a 6th if we were lucky.

    Well, let me ask this…

    How much of a better passer do you really think EJ MANUEL is than TP ?

    You think EJ is a better scrambler and athlete than TP ?

    Some clowns in here would dump TP for a 6th rounder while EJ is getting drafted in the FIRST.

    Maybe, but not this year and next year I guess we will take a franchise QB in the draft.The real competition is between Prior and Wilson for the #2
