Oakland Raiders: East Coast Fan/Draft Prediction

Michael WilliamsContributor IApril 14, 2010

I grew up in the Mid Ohio Valley. My friends, neighbors and colleagues are all Cleveland, Pittsburgh, or  Cincinnati fans. I grew up watching these teams as well. None of these teams, however, are my favorite. Thanks to Tim Brown and his place on the Oakland Raiders team, I will always love and bleed Silver and Black. Now on the complete opposite part of the country from the Oakland Raiders, talking about them isn't very common. But I'm not writing this to talk about my life, so here it is. Watching the Raiders, it's always unpredictable what Al Davis will do. Not much off-season moves have been made. There's been many moves this off-season for other teams, and I question why Raiders haven't taken any bites on any of them. Raider's QB Jamarcus Russell obviously needs help. If Al Davis wants to have a season like last season then I don't see him making any moves at QB. Now Al Davis doesn't have any seasons to waste if he wants to make another Super Bowl run as owner for the Raiders, therefore I see him drafting Tim Tebow in the first round. To me, drafting Tim Tebow isn't the smartest pick for them for a first rounder. He could very well be still available by the time the Raiders are on the clock again for the second round. But drafting Tim Tebow is my prediction for the Raiders first round pick because it has Al Davis written all over it.
