Talking to Raider fans, I get a mixed review from them as far as whether they want him or not. I personally would love to have him.
I like the fact that he would be in the middle of Trevor Scott and Kamerion Wimbley. I don't think that Kirk will be back at MLB and expect him to be traded.
This is the time of year all players get knitpicked and all their flaws get embellished, but Mclain no doubt has great College production. His passion for the game and intangible leadership is what also makes me comfortable with this pick.
I was thinking Offensive Tackle but right now we are a better defensive team than offensive, and we need to have a rookie impact right now.
Looking at our schedule we are looking at running backs such as TEN Chris Johnson, SF Frank Gore, ARI Beanie Wells, DEN Knowshon Moreno and KC Thomas all before the BYE week. Keep in mind STL will probably have a rookie QB and should run the ball a lot with Stephen Jackson.
Mclain is a good player who should be helped also by our second round pick.
