The Oakland Raiders have a chance to get a few things right. The NFL draft will start on Thursday evening rather than on the traditional Saturday.

Program your television, and log on to your computers to watch each and every minute of it. That's what I am going to do.

A lot of people have named a lot of players who they believe can strengthen the Oakland Raiders. All I can say, is get in there and get some of that good, rough, fearless talent to enhance our team.

Some bloggers say the schedule change is not good. Let's make it good by using the technology to capture what you can't view because of your job or other responsibilities.

Great choices during this 2010 draft can help break the patterns of the past seven years.

I don't know about you, but I have started reading and researching the profiles of some of the new talent that is coming onto the scene. I also will admit that I really don't know which college guy is going to work best with the Raiders.

I just know I want an aggressive, smart, tough guy with that type of on-the-spot intelligence to help us win games.

Go Raiders!
