okay, just heard some very interesting stuff regarding where the raiders stand right now. basically, there are three players oakland is targeting with the #1 pick: - adrian peterson - brady quinn - jamarcus russell don't know who's first or last on the list, so i alphabatized it. randy moss and jerry porter are going nowhere, so calvin johnson is out of the mix--for now. using my brain and looking at al davis' history, i'd love to say that both QB's are completely out of the question. it's just not that easy though, is it? i still think ultimately they go with peterson, simply because he's a more rare talent than either russell or quinn, and i think the success of 2-back systems in the NFL will inspire davis to adopt a system with peterson and jordan toting the pill to take pressure off of his new QB Troy Smith. yep, the raiders like Troy Smith--a LOT. he's #3 on their QB board right now, and al seems to have a thing for Heisman winners....hmm. i'm thinking they go Peterson round one, and toss the dice in round 2 and take Smith. his leadership, strong arm and athletic ability are all big draws. take it for what ya will, naturally. i'm willing to trust this source. for now. because things change every day. in fact, this was told to me in an email i got 3 days ago that i didn't check till now, so who knows, it could all be different now....stay tuned.
