One of These 4 Will Be Drafted First By Al Davis

After drafting Darrius Heyward-Bey better known as DHB, I'm very curious to see who Al Davis is going to draft with the 8th pick this year.

I'd love for Trent Williams to fall to Oakland, but the only way he falls to Oakland is if teams consider his lack of love for the game the big reason as to why he drops. He's got all the tools, but if he's another Mario Henderson there's no reason to duplicate the position.

Besides, I doubt Mike Shanahan is going to let Trent Williams get past the Redskins 4th pick as he could be his next Ryan Clady and defend Donovan McNabb's blindside next year.

So scratch Trent Williams off Oakland's possible list of offensive tackles in this draft. Scratching Russell Okung's name was immediate when the list was written.

As the draft approaches more and more teams are now starting to realize that Iowa's Bryan Bulaga might be very similar to Robert Gallery, an over-hyped tackle who was over-coached at Iowa behind the country's best O line coach in Kirk Ferentz.

So scratch Bulaga of the list of potential Oakland Raiders tackles. If Trent Williams doesn't fall to Oakland I can't see Al reaching for Bruce Campbell. He's never been known to draft a super fast offensive lineman and it's highly doubtful he'll draft a lineman without Tom Cable's input.

This leaves four possible players Oakland should think about drafting, DT/NT Dan Williams, QB Jimmy Clausen, RG Mike Iupati, and although they are strong at the position, grabbing a stud DE for depth and a great rotation, DE Derrick Morgan.
