I think Oakland gave up their 6th Round draft pick in this trade ... But guess that means Mack won't be taken in the first round by the Raiders as high as 7th overall .. probably wouldnt have anyway but they could still draft a Center and groom him behind this guy.

That's a little bothersome that Dolphins are getting rid of him because of his inability to thrust up the middle....We need that for our RB's...I feel like we took a step back on this one.

I don't think any offensive center will come off the board within the first 25 picks, it usually just doesnt happen that early. That, coupled with the fact that this is a very deep offensive line draft could mean that we will go DT, WR, or LB in the first, then OT-OC in 2nd. Then S in the 3rd with guys like Rashad Johnson or Curtis Taylor.

All the signings limit down what the Raiders are likely picking come late April, but either way, if we keep getting great mid-late round talent then we will be on the way to being a power in the West again.

I guess the guy is young, experienced and has not missed time with injury. So He maybe have been added for depth.

He seems to fit the zone blocking scheme at Center or Guard. More importantly, it seems to give the Raiders flexibility in the Draft.

Me too...What bothers me is when a player signs with a new team and then the player he replaces in the starting lineup goes to his former team. I haven't heard any good about this guy so, I'd've rather stuck with John Wade...

he started two straight years. they liked him but had problems with two taller players from the pats and skins. so he does have good skills. just give him a chance i say, if not, j wade is still there.

I just read that Satele played through much of last season with a shoulder fracture/torn labrum. Could explain his lack of "thrust". This has been successfully repaired, and he is looking forward to playing healthy again. He had a very impressive career in Hawaii, and second-year in Miami, all things considered. There obviously is no question of his toughness. He is very highly regarded by his team-mates, and fans. Trust in the Cable guy!

whats up captain? yeah i've been reading that too and if they seem high on him and for RAIDERS to give up those picks for him he must be all that! so i hope he is who they thought he was!=) he'll be fine and hopefully better.

Que Paso Misterio!!! I've said it before and I'll say it again..I'm a fan of the Oakland Raiders, not just certain players. I really hope the new center works out for us (I just wish I could remember his name better). He is still young, so I believe there is hope for him. I wasn't to fond of Rich Gannon when we first got him, but we had a winning team with him at the helm and I was happy to have a winning Raider football team. GO RAIDERS 2009!!!!!!!
