Don't worry. Raiders will make a flashy pick.

Roger Goodell: In the 2013 NFL Draft, the Oakland Raiders select Jarvis Jones, LB out of UGA!!!!!

That actually makes sense, they'd try to copy the success of a division rival (Broncos) taking a 3-4 OLB in a 4-3 defense.

Watch, Raiders will pass up on Star for Jarvis or a Montgomery/Mingo. They likes to surprise people even themselves.

I'd be more than fine with Hankins, but Star is my preference. If by some stroke of terrible luck they're both gone I hope Nix is available in the 2nd. Those three, along with John Jenkins to a lesser degree, are the only DTs I really want from this draft.

Yea same here. But I'd like to get a Richardson or Ford in the 2nd if we somehow pass on a DT in the 1st.

I'm not a big fan of Short and he's a 3tech which we already have in Dwan. We need a NT.

Hankins is the better player for us. Unless we can't retain Dwan Edwards then we could use Stars versatility.

But if we want a true pocket collapsing, aggressive playing nose tackle with experience against strong linemen, then Hankins is the better choice.

the raiders are in the bottom 5 in sacks, i think they go after the best pass rusher in the draft (Damontre Moore).they still have Tommy Kelly, and Richard Seymour and a 300+ pound DE in Lamar Houston who can play DT. but a good chance of Kelly and Seymour being released to free some cap space.

The days of the head-scratchin, flashy pick from the Raiders died with Al... I think Oakland is due for some change from what we are used to getting. Not saying Al is Jerruh, but he had his way....

4 games left, how many can we win? I doubt it's all of them. If it is, then hell yea! But seriously, We're going to finish 4-12 or 5-11.

I don't know. I think Ron has one more win in him AT MOST. No way we get 5 wins IMO. He'll blow it some how.
