He could coach and fill our need at NT. ;)

In my opinion, less of a prospect than Suh but at least on par with, if not greater than, McCoy and Dareus. Star's burst off the snap is the quickest I've probably ever seen for a guy his size and he's very strong at the point of attack. He's not as polished as Dareus or as much of a pass rusher as McCoy but in terms of total package and potential I'd probably take him before the other two.

..you better hope that the Raiders start winning games or end up with a better record. Otherwise they will get Star Lotulelei instead of us.



Edit: Damn it, could a mod move this to the 'draft' section. I dun goofed.

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

No they'll pick a WR. But not the #1 overall but the #2 or the #3 because it is the Raiders we are talking about and we know how they draft

Maybe someone like Sylvester Williams in the second at NT

Looking at the prospects, if Hankins, Star, & Joekel are gone, I'd seriously consider Allen or Milliner and go either WR/OG/DT in the 2nd.

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.

Well I agree whole heartedly. 4-12 it is.

So people think DT is our biggest need now?

Dwan and Ron are holding it down for now and I think Dwan has several quality years left. No doubt, we need to address it still, but I don't know that it is our #1 need.

I'm thinking Safety or a solid #2 CB (assuming Norman will be taking over Gamble's spot) are higher up there for now.

I see what you're saying diddy, but remember Ron just when down and we need a YOUNG UT/NT Fua is not the answer and Ron is old as fudge. Getting that stud NT to take over for Ron when he's gone just has to be done. The biggest needs in my honest opinion would be DT, FS,OT, WR, G.

From what I've been reading and hearing he's better than Suh when he was coming out. Suh has declined a bit though. But Star is a good all around player, on and off the field.

Um, it's the raiders. They're horrible. We're at home and they aren't a good road team. Also they don't know if they're coming or going.

I wouldnt mind.
Hes also a big fellow, but I dont really keep up with him.
Hes a guy that his stock could rise by draft day.

Some mocks have him going late 1st. I just rather have a Star or Hankins before anyone else in this draft. If we miss out on the two of them, then Sylvester and Jenkins will be my two favorite DT left on the board.

Im iffy about Kawaan Short. I llike Ford, Richardson and Nix above Short.
