    Like Doc has been saying Reggie will take some cornerback project or a safety with a sob story at #5.

    I will then laugh, throw my scotch at Mel Kiper’s face on the telly…then go to Best Buy and get a new one (maybe them snazzy new 4K TV’s, but no 3-D I like my movies classico style)

  • Raideralex99

    Watkins or Mack no Bridgewater.

  • Return

    My dear child. I had such hopes for you. Thought you’d taken a little time off to collect your thought (singular) and would come back and try to behave.

    Oh well, hope springs eternal.

  • Chuckmeez

    Watkins

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Except that you have Jax picking Clowney AND Bridgewater? Can they do that? LoL

  • rifflicks

    B S 90% of the people on this blog thought the sun shined out of his a$$ and were wearing in his jocks for hats

  • I AM RAIDER

    all you do is complain complain complain..i dislike RMs moves..some at least all three years as well.but he is doing as well as to be expected in FA..minus losing Veldheer… we did not have access to im sure 20-40% of FA’s simply because they didn’t want to come here… he has gotten good talent..so what if they are near 30…not a lot of in their prime ..pro bowl free agents on the market..for this crop he has signed pretty well. give him a B…easy

  • Avion Davis

    Arian Foster was at the game with Manziel yesterday. Not that it matters much. But Houston could really love JM.

    Manziel

  • rifflicks

    Trade Down

  • RaiderCDE

    typo – fixed it

  • 559 Raider 87

    Mack. He would be good for a multiple scheme D like ours. Wouldnt be against Clowney either. Other than those 2, trade down and go D

  • Chuckmeez

    Then McCaron

  • RaiderReloader

    He has not started yet! manzel might beat him out :P

  • plunkhead

    Mad matt will beat out Schoub

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    Called it days ago. Manziel takes the Texans to a Lombardi win in his rookie season.

  • Raideralex99

    Clowney if he is there if not Watkins

  • jumpnjiminy

    Yes!

  • jumpnjiminy

    Yes! though it’s spelled McCarron

  • rifflicks

    that should make you happy…you’ll have something to cry about

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    JM is the Texans #1 pick :-(

  • 559 Raider 87

    Mack

  • josh801

    Dream draft 1. Watkins 2. Kony ealy 3. Aj mccaron

  • plunkhead

    He was paid real well to be the face of the death and destruction that’s coming.

  • 559 Raider 87

    So much for open competition.
    Steve Corkran ‏@CorkOnTheNFL 19 secs
    Raiders coach Dennis Allen said that the team “brought in Matt Schaub to be our starting quarterback.”

  • RaiderCDE

    Top 5 players in this draft.

    Clowney
    Mack
    Robinson
    Matthews
    Watkins

    If the Raiders get any of these players at #5 we are doing well.

  • BigBenRexor

    Not so fun fact: Matty Lice threw a game clinching INT vs a 10 man, Chuck Bresnehan led Defense.

  • RaidO

    Soon to come to Raider nation buzz words…. Get ready it’s coming.. Schaub sucks!

    “Schaubing”: Named for the former Houston Texans’ quarterback. It is the ability to throw an interception at a time and place that will completely crush any hope of victory by your team. A Super Schaub is throwing two or more interceptions in a game or throwing an interception that is returned for a touchdown.

    As long as we don’t restructure it. I sure hope we don’t.

  • Chuckmeez

    Hahah that’s hilarious

  • 559 Raider 87

    We all have our own preferences on who we should draft, but if we get any of these 5 it would be a welcomed addition

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Isn’t that race-baiting what you doing here MIstic?
    Isn’t that a hate crime?
    Isn’t that a serious matter? Like a felony or something?

  • plunkhead

    Mad matt will beat him out

  • rifflicks

    they said the same thing about Flynn

  • Raideralex99

    Yes on this blog … Pryor was elected to the HOF before his first snap.
    If you want to know how good a Raider player is … You have to read about him on other teams blogs. If you don’t here anything about that player you know he not good or if they are making jokes about him.

  • jumpnjiminy

    if he pulls that ‘fake’ open competition business again…give Schaub, McGloin, and McCarron all the same chance and whichever guy can get the most points on the board and least number of turnovers with the starting offense in the lousy four preseason games they’re given…bingo, there’s your starter.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Trade down bidding war ensues

  • RaidO

    Ah deja vu…..here we go again. Wasted season

  • BigBenRexor

    In the spirit of being positive, it will help DJ Hayden’s confidence to be able to practice against Matt Schaub

  • Raiders24

    “the ability to throw an interception at a time and place that will completely crush any hope of victory by your team” sounds similar to ‘Romoing’

  • 559 Raider 87

    Sounds like it could also be named “Romoing”

  • Raiders24

    hilarious! I just posted the same thing

  • http://AdvoCare.com/ Till death do us part

    Coombaya!!!!

  • Elliot

    Be respectful no schaubing will be tolerated on this site…

  • RaidO

    Pretty much guaranteed one of those players

  • 909RaiderLifer

    LOL, good one….

  • Rick Worth

    Your a chargers fan aren’t ya?

  • Return

    Hey William,

    See?

  • Raideralex99

    Lol … He has not taken one snap as a Raider.
