First- and second-round draft picks shut down

First-round draft pick D.J. Hayden and second-round draft pick Menelik Watson were placed on the non-football-injury list today. Therefore, they likely won’t participate in the Raiders first practice at training camp in Napa on Friday.
The designation simply means that Hayden and Watson suffered injuries in an exercise or incident unrelated to football. Hayden and Watson can come off the list at any time during training camp and pick up where they left off, once they pass a physical.
No word on the nature or severity of Watson’s injury. We should know more Friday, when coach Dennis Allen speaks with the media for the first time since the conclusion of offseason workouts in June.
Coincidentally, former Raiders offensive lineman Bruce Campbell was placed on the NFI list a few years ago after he suffered an injury before training camp started.
This isn’t what Watson needs, given he is a rookie, on the verge of his first training camp and in need of every rep possible if he hopes to unseat Khalif Barnes for the starting job at right offensive tackle.
Hayden, of course, has been recovering from surgery to remove scar tissue in his abdominal region. He first had surgery in that area last November, when he suffered a ruptured vein.

    DJ Hayden may be a very risky 1st round pick. But if you cant root for him then who can you root for

    Hayden = top five CB within three years.

    Watson will beat out Barnes by mid season.

    I wonder who the three street FA’s will be that fill out the roster.

    you would risk DJ Hayden, letting him field punts when the red jersey comes off?

    only an idiot would do that and I don’t consider you one
    =====================================================

    Considering some recent mishandling of punts, and the long snapper debacle (no backup with real practice time), maybe they just want a 3rd back up for worst case scenario that can actually hang on to a fair catch. Pure speculation on my part, of course.

    And just to be clear, I’ll say this again. I am rooting for Hayden. I would like nothing more than to have another Hayes or Haynes or CWood at CB. When we’ve been great, we’ve had great corners. It was just top big a risk w a team in the position we r in. Again, I’ll be happy to say I’m wrong about Hayden in a year or so when he’s out of the woods. Even of he makes it through this season, healthy. But not until then.

    Just because I don’t like the pick doesn’t mean I don’t want the guy to succeed. That would be stupid.

    Its unfortunate some here think that if you disagree with any decisions you are rooting for that decision to fail.

    @@@@@@@@

    First of all, I never said his contract was facker up. Like 3 times today I said I liked the contract. I didn’t like the fact that Hayden’s agent used the “Reggie said he’d pick him 3rd” comment against Reggie. That’s what the article said. That’s what I was talking about. Our precious argument aside.

    And how the hell is it backtracking? I’m not supposed to me mature or cerebral enough to question a move and still root for it to work lot for my team? I’m not an idiot. And I’m not a hater. I want every guy on this roster to be awesome! Just because I question their ability or their draft position or draftabilty for that matter, doesn’t mean I don’t want them to succeed. That’s not backtracking. That’s being an objective Raider fan. I’ve said over and over again I hope I’m wrong about Hayden an that I want it to work out. I’ve said that for months as well. But I’m not supposed to question it? Especially on a friggin blog?

    I’m a Raider fan through and through. But I’m not an ignorant follower. And yea, I can e negative. The last 20 years will do that to a Raider fan. But it doesn’t mean I don’t want it to work out. And I’ve said that repeatedly.

    I can question a move or a player or a coach without hating him. Can you?

    Yep. 1977 reg season after SB victory over Minnesota.

    It was a home game vs. Denver’s “Orange Crush” team. It was a 30-7 loss.

    Stabler and Raiders would rebound a few weeks later jumping off to a 24-0 lead AT Denver…eventually winning 24-14.

    Raiders would play Denver a 3rd time that yr in the AFC Championship at Denver and would be robbed by the famous Rob Lytle “no fumble” play.

    You talk about rip off. I’ve never seen a more obvious fumble and a more obvious rip-off. Tatum’s helmet hit the ball head on and he fumbled. I guess they claim the ball was blown dead in error by the ref.
