I give this year's overall draft an A. It is a good one to build on.
1. Rolando McClain: He is the real deal. The Raiders have had a lot of woes over the years and He has helped rid some of them
2. Lamar Houston: The NCAA DT has converted well to DE. He has that mean streak like Alzado and Tooz.
3. Jared Veldeer: Proof that you can't judge a guy because he went to a small school. I think he'll end up being a steal of a LT.
4a. Bruce Campbell: Many feared that we'd waste the first round pick on him, but combine warriors aren't neccisarily good ball players and that is why he fell to round 4.
4b. Jacoby Ford: Typical Al Davis pick; I think not. This guy has more than a 4.2 40 time; he has ball skills. Hot-Rod Ford was our best steal of the draft as both a WR and KR.
5. Walter McFadden: Has been injured and haven't seen much of him, but seems to be finding his way.
6. Travis Goethel: Not much heard of him, but after getting over his back injury, he is finding his way into special teams and some defensive formations.
7a. Jeremy Ware: This guy has 0 INTS in college, but has 1 as a pro. I think his strength is playing man to man.
7b. Stevie Brown: Put on a nice show in preseason and was surprisingly the only drafted rookie cut from camp. Luckily he stuck around on the practice squad. I still wonder why we cut him over WR/KR Yamon Figures...Does anybody even remember that guy?
