    I will wait three years and I will tell you exactly how could this draft was

  • Raider O

    It’s a disaster cause we took a lot of risk with out top 2 picks and wasted a 4th. I’m not saying they are busts, but if it doesn’t work out, I will not be surprised.

  • inonewordraider

    serious? oh man, huge need and raider bloodlines, freakin reggie bringing us back to our roots

  • DKnight007

    We got Skov and two receivers….nice!

  • RediaR

    Mike Davis isn’t a bad snag either. Hopefully he can take his thumb out of his bum and be a real player.

  • Raider O

    It has the potential to be an A with Schaub, Tuck, MJD, and Woodly.

  • Rico Stifler

    Jags stole a CB I liked, Rashaad reynolds….

  • GG

    obviously no one can grade a draft till 3 years roughly.

    but you can roughly, going off what you know of the players, their existing scouting grades etc. You can just tell upfront if a team APPEARED to have a good draft or not.

  • RediaR

    Is Assumption a good school?

  • DKnight007

    All the QB’s had flaws…all rookies do in general

  • Dakota

    I am excited to see Hayden, Watson, Moore, Mack, Jackson and jelly roll or butter bean or whatever they call that big dude all getting significant time in the preseason…..and I hope Carr looks legit. Reggie needs all of these guys to come through (except Carr hopefully) in 2014. Can’t have them sitting on the bench due to injuries.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Maybe I’m getting a little overly optimistic, but w this draft and this waive of UDFA signings and the young talent potential we already have that was sidelined last year, for the first year in a long time we may not be trolling June 1 cuts. I’m sure Reggie will, that’s his job, but it won’t be as necessary as in years past. We r building an actual nfl roster.

  • 0ak R8rs

    I would assume so.

  • xraided

    right and Woodley …

    even if Penn gets back to it from his 2012 pro bowl selection

    reggie is going for high motor guys with something to prove…

    despite our schedule, i’m seeing 7-9 to 8-8

  • JV.

    Shocking what a salary cap and good drafting can do.

    Haven’t seen it in 10 years..

  • 0ak R8rs

    Yea. Hallelujah.

  • GG

    It’s a very small school.

  • JV.

    @RaidersBeat: #Raiders have signed UDFA (unofficial) OT Erle Ladson (@UDFB78) from the University of Delaware – alma mater of Rich Gannon.

    @RaidersBeat: –> @ULM_BSB: Cameron Blakes signs a FA deal with @RAIDERS #TalonsOut

  • 0ak R8rs

    Remember when the team fell apart because Shawntae Spencer went down? Lmao.

  • Rico Stifler

    Ravens added UNC OT James Hurst

  • seymour bush

    New post zeroes.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Carr to me is no different than any of the QBs in his class in that they all have red flags. No sure fire booms or busts. He has as good a chance to make it as any of them IMO.

  • xraided

    definitely true… we’ll see how many of these late rounders stick to even begin grading them

    these troubled 7th rounders are projects for reggie and DA…we’ll see how well they do.

  • Rico Stifler

    ILB Christian Jones to the Jags

  • Rico Stifler

    Cody Hoffman to the Redskins

  • aig-raiders

    No Cam transferred out.

  • Blackholepriest

    And some….


    I think they made a very good choice with Charlie Strong. I wish him well (although not too well, because I’m a diehard Sooner fan , lol).

  • Blackholepriest

    It would be crime to not get George the III. I can’t imagine him going anywhere else………period

  • 1960AutumnWind

    According to SBP he signed with Raiders….

  • Howard Benner

    Can we assume so?!

  • Pre Bone

    and Reggie gets his 2nd open heart surgery recipient!!

    All joking aside this class looks pretty good. All contingent on Carr obviously. I wanted Garoppolo but at least they took somebody with priority. Skov is a nice bonus too!

  • DKnight007

    So Skov went with Whiners instead? What a prick….and Harbaugh is a d!&k!

  • Random_White_Guy

    I thought he got kicked out for stealing a laptop and cheating on a test.
