If you happen to be on the internet, home, work, on the road, anywhere, i hope you've been notified, by friend, brother, sister, TV, or another way, of another Oakland Raiders UNPREDICTABLE pick. I don't think i will ever do another mock draft of my Raiders again. I'm always going to get it wrong. Everyone else got it wrong too. Don't feel left out.
I think the Raiders made a good pick with Rolando McClain at number 8. I would rather like to see Russell Okung in the silver and black, but the Seahawks took him. I think it's safe to say that the careers of Thomas Howard, and Kirk Morrison are over in Oakland. The linebackers as of today are as follows:
LOLB: Trevor Scott
MLB/ILB: Rolando McClain
ROLB: Kamerion Wimbley
So Kirk Morrison and Thomas Howard probably are on the trade block no later than tomorrow. The Raiders picks the last few years are surprising. Here are their picks from the last four years:
2007: JaMarcus Russell, QB/LSU
2008: Darren McFadden, RB/ARK
2009: Darrius Heyward-Bey WR/MAR
2010: Rolando McClain ILB/ALA
Next year we don't have a pick though so for 2012, don't be surprised!
