this one seems more reasonable than the last one. calvin johnson goes to the vikes at 7. values seem to be ben grubbs (OG) at 22, okoye (DT) at 24, and patrick willis (MLB) at 31.

I think a lot of draft mocks are making some interesting assumptions at the top of the draft. That's all I'm gonna say for now.

I still don't see how Russell's stock has risen so high..

yeah, i'm kinda weird on that too. his completion % and td/int ratio is very very good though, and he improved a lot year to year.

I guess the thinking is brady quinn wilted in any game where he had to play a good team, but oakland needs a QB bad, so they have to take somebody.

I think they're also banking on his size and everything that comes with it. He seems like he has all the physical tools to be a very good NFL QB.

My guess is that Al Davis likes a vertical passing attack and Russell is perfectly suited for such a scheme. Supposedly, Russell can throw 85 yard bombs without much effort and can throw 45 yarders while sitting down. I don't know how much good, however, Russell would do for a passing attack that is going to rely on a Moss-less receiving corps (who will be traded) and an offensive line that seems to have a fetish for QBs lying on their backs.

I can't see Tampa passing up Calvin Johnson if he's available, as long as Gruden has a say. I'd be happy w/Branch, Adams or Anderson. Lots of good DEs will be there when we pick.

Jamarcus "Akili Smith" Russell...but seriously. What's interesting, to your point SGG, is that the Raiders recently named Greg Knapp their offensive coordinator (from Atlanta) and he's all about the west coast offense so we'll see how that plays into things

Good point, I didn't even think of that. Did I just hear wrong and Davis isn't a huge fan of the deep passing game? Or is he simply realistic and knows that his offensive line can't protect sufficiently to implement a vertical attack?

i know we need d line help. but i would have to do a real long double take at calvin johnson before drafting a dlineman. my thinking is that though that branch and jamaal would be my first choices on the dline johnson is a once in a decade talent.just like bailey was a once in a decade cb. i think you take the rare talent over the need. we can fill it in other ways.these defensive players are good but not dominating. but johnson could be dominating with moss and cooley and portis to play along side. again yes d line is the greatest area of need but you can't go by complete need at the beginning of the draft. maybe in later rounds you can, but in that position. i;m taking johnson.i guess im kinda cookey like that,

Johnson doesn't fall. Someone will trade up for him. He is considered the best prospect in the draft. He goes top 3.

Well if some reason Calvin Johnson falls to us, we should consider trading our pick to the falcons. They need a receiver in the worse way and would give us they 1st and 2nd for the right to draft Calvin Johnson

Not to be too offensive but....

The only thing that Al Davis likes is when his diaper is changed. There is no way that he is still running the team.
