    Man was I relieved. I had a growing "gut-wrenching" feeling as the Raiders got closer and closer to picking...I was almost certain Al would waste another 1st round pick on someone like Tebow. I felt so relieved when we picked McClain, he is a great pick compared to who we could have gotten. Cable later stated they were going for either Russel Okung or Trent Williams, and since they were both gone by the time they picked, they went with the next guy on their list, McClain. We have had really poor run blocking over the past few seasons, so I'm really excited to see what McClain can bring.


    Here is an excerpt from the Cable interview. I can't believe it, is Al FINALLY changing the way he drafts and/or letting Coach Cable draft?! :yikes:

    I've been a Raiders fan since 83, and I was starting to get really worried about them. This draft has been very solid, and there are some really good players still available. I would try to shore up the OL and add another WR (I don't care for DHB). Gradkowski will suffice for next year then I would start to look for a QB. If they play well I could see the Raiders at anywhere from 7-9 to 10-6, the 10-6 would require ALOT to go their way, but the talent is there. Their D is going to be sick.

    FWIW, there is an Asian girl :kitten:. Nnamdi has been doing this for a few years, so I'm sure he's not excluding children of any race.

    *EDIT* I should have checked his foundation's website before posting. On the front page is a picture of the group he took that was shown in the video. I see a white girl on the left side of the picture :jam:.
