    Raiders to take Russell first, according to sources

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/draft07/news/story?id=2852155

    It appears the Oakland Raiders have made their choice, and it's JaMarcus Russell. According to two sources, one with the Raiders and one close to Russell, the team called Russell Friday to inform him he would be the No. 1 pick in the 2007 NFL Draft.

    The team called Russell on Friday to inform him that he is their player, the sources said. Oakland quietly flew offensive coordinator Greg Knapp to New York on Thursday to meet with Russell and reassure him of his status as the team's preference over Georgia Tech receiver Calvin Johnson and Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn.

    snippet:
    The San Francisco 49ers, one of the more aggressive teams this offseason in terms of acquisitions, enter this weekend's draft with a league-high eight picks in the first four rounds: one first-round selection, a second, two thirds and four fourths.

    On the eve of the draft, the Niners already were poised to maximize the value of one of those fourth-round picks.

    According to league sources, San Francisco and division rival Seattle are working toward a trade that would send Seahawks wide receiver Darrell Jackson to the Niners in exchange for one of their fourth-rounders, believed to be the Niners' third selection in the round, No. 124 overall. The New Orleans Saints and Tennessee Titans, whose new general manager Mike Reinfeldt came over from Seattle, are also believed to be talking with Seattle about Jackson.

    Mike Mayock is saying that there are serious concerns about Peterson's injury based on his conversations this morning.

    Patriots offered the Raiders a 2nd day pick for Randy Moss per Adam Schefter.

    The Browns are trying to trade up to #1.

    Goose said yesterday that the injury should not affect Peterson's draft status. His point was that in today's NFL all you really wanted was a player to make it through the rookie contract. HE also said the Peterson is a special talent. All per the local ESPN affliate, Randy Galloway's show.

    I do not want Leon Hall. Most mock drafts have us taking Hall. I think he is overated. I hope we pick either Okoye, Levi Brown or jamal Anderson. One of those will fall to us. But not Leon Hall.

    I see a tough rookie season looming for Russell if he does end up in Oakland.

    I'm good to go. Of course I'm painting and caulking while watching.

    Its Russell, followed by Calvin, whom TB will move up to get, followed by Quinn/Peterson..I'm torn.

    ESPN"S Ed Werder reports that Lane Kiffin had denied the report from Smith that the Raiders have told Russell he will be their pick. Supposedly Raiders are talking to the Browns about a trade so the Browns can get Russell.

    The Ryan Kalil feature with Will Ferrell on NFLN was funny, "I want that Twinkie so bad."
