They all seem like good choices even though I'm not 100% sold on Maclin, but I still think Raji will benifit us most. I do like Crabtree, Smith, and Oher too...

Darius Heyward-Bey!?!?!?!? Are you kidding me...We could've traded down for an extra pick and still got him...Hopefully he works out well for us...

correction on my previous note (i didnt know the jets gave up their 17th pick overall too)

The Jets paid a high price to move up, handing former coach Eric Mangini a couple of starters from his old defense. Going to the Browns are DE Kenyon Coleman, QB Brett Ratliff and DB Abram Elam, a first-round pick (17th overall) and a second-round pick (52nd).

Mike Mitchell!?!?!?! I did expect him to be a Raider, but not today. He was projected as a seventh rounder by everybody. I wasn't as surprised to see us take him as I was when we took Heyward-Bey, but either way both Raji and Brace are off the board now so sorry Freddy there will be no backflips. I do believe we got 2 great players so far, but I think we could've done better...I am not disappointed but I am stunned.

Don't know much about Mike Mitchell, However after watching that video clip....two things jump out at me....first he reads offenses veery well...that's hard to teach....one of those things that you either do well or don't and the other thing is he seems fearless....Overall seems to be a better pick than Heyward Bey...I hope I am wrong on Heyward Bay....but I think that was a big mistake....Only time will tell....I wasn't able to see the trade what happened with us getting the 2nd rd pick via trade???

As soon as I had heard of him and read about his visit with the Raiders, I knew he'd be one. Sounds like he hits like Tatum and Atkinson. I hope he can create turnovers as well as knock the heads off of opponents. RAIDERNATION 2009!!!!!!!

WR Louis Murphy from Florida oughta be good depth...Plus he came from a championship team and should bring a winning mentality to the locker room (but then again so did Michael Huff but I never thought Huff was first round matterial when he was in college).

LB Slade Norris from Oregon State gives us another LB and I remember him putting on a few hard hits in the only Oregon State game I saw last year...

I got a good vibe about Mitchell....I think he will be a Tatum-esque player....smash teeth to the back of the helmet type of player.
