Dear sweet baby Jesus...let the Raiders take Calvin or Quinn and let Cleve-land go with Russell. Please sweet baby Jesus let Peterson fall to the Texans.
His softness would worry me too. Now he's probably made the rounds on the award circuit so his diet and workout have probably suffered, but knowing that the biggest interview of your life was coming up and not working out hard beforehand?
Wonder what his study habits would be like in the NFL?
It would be about time for the Texans to catch a break.
Another negative I see with Russell is his arrogance. If you saw him walking around at the combine you would think he owned the place, and he didn't do anything. He acts like he's got the #1 pick in the bag, and isn't that just what the Raiders need... another cocky player.
Good luck Lane Kiffin (a coach younger than alot of players on the team) trying to control the egos of Russell, Moss, & Porter... WOW! No pressure there for the youngest coach in the NFL...
I noticed he looked pretty arrogant as well...
I don't know if that has any affect on his on field performance though...
What awards did he win?
Well as far as scouting goes that falls under "coachability", something that all teams do take into strong consideration....
I never really felt for Russell. When you take away his arm, there's not really anything else you could look at that stands out big. I wonder what he got on his Wonderlic....
Am I on fire?
The ESPN hype award...where have you been?
Excellent! Best news I've heard today. Quinn goes to Oakland and Russell to Cleveland leaving that scrawny old Adrian Peterson for Mr McNair to make a millionairre. Hooray! We get our franchise back and Bush slowly fades to just another memory.....
That's what i've been thinking. Russell has such a long way to go before he becomes a great quarterback. That was interesting reading that one team has him as a mid second.
He sure has a big upside but with that comes a lot of risk. of all the top ten rated players I have Russell as the biggest bust factor...maybe next to Ginn.
He could be a great fit for oakland with that big arm of his and they need a qb, but that's all it is...a need pick for them...they should go with calvin johnson or even joe thomas. i'd suggest them trading down but that will be very difficult. al davis doesnt want to take a qb or lt again at 1. everyone's been saying he's gonna take russell but that pick is way overvalued for russell.
personally i'd rather quinn than russell for the texans. but russell would intrigue me if he fell to us. i'd just rather us not spend our 1st on a qb.
From Peter King's MMQB. I don't expect Quinn, AP, or Levi Brown to last until the 8th pick, but would love to have any of the three.
those scores say it all, MT. hard to win those "big games" when your defense allows 40.5 points per game.
Yeah go to tell Vince Young that his mental aptitude matters.
i would but i doubt he'd understand the word "aptitude."
Yeah, too bad that the NFL administers spelling tests and physics exams to determine the winner of every game. I heard the Super Bowl is chosen by which team can solve the Good Will Hunting math problem the fastest.
it's also too bad you need to be able to pass the ball to win a super bowl. sucks...
