I know I did lol.
LOL What? Locker is yet to look great for an entire game. Kaep absolutely balled his was through the playoffs
Nope. I wanted Julio and when he was gone I wanted Watt. I was bummed when we picked locker. So far my opinion hasn't changed.
If memory serves, I was open to (from the unpicked guys still remaining when we picked) OL/C Pouncey and DL Nick and JJ......
I wanted d-line in the 1st for the last 2 drafts.
With all of the good D-line prospects taken before 20 last year, I understood why Kendall Wright was taken.
This wasn't worth its own thread.... But DAYM, we were recently talking about different teams and their drafting abilities - my goodness, check the black hole before ever hating on the Titans again - I hope Webster proves to be a star in the draft room...
Per SI.com - King's MMQB
The level of incompetence in the draft room by the Raiders is stunning. Over the past nine years they're the only team to not draft a Pro Bowl player in the first round. The year-by-year futility in drafting:
2004 -- Drafted tackle Robert Gallery second overall. Couldn't hack tackle. Became a decent guard. Now out of football.
2005 -- Drafted cornerback Fabian Washington 23rd overall. Now out of football.
2006 -- Drafted safety Michael Huff seventh overall. Just left for Baltimore as an unrestricted free agent.
2007 -- Drafted quarterback JaMarcus Russell first overall. Russell and Ryan Leaf are the biggest quarterback busts in NFL history. Now out of football.
2008 -- Drafted running back Darren McFadden fourth overall. When healthy, he's a very good back, but he's missed 23 games due to injury in five years. Enters the season as the Raiders' prospective starting back.
2009 -- Drafted wideout Darrius Heyward-Bey seventh overall. Just left for a modest free-agent deal in Indianapolis.
2010 -- Drafted linebacker Rolando McClain eighth overall. Two arrests, one team suspension and three in-and-out seasons later, he was released by McKenzie last week.
2011 -- Al Davis used the first-round pick in a trade the previous year for defensive tackle Richard Seymour, who was cut by McKenzie in a cost-cutting move last month.
2012 -- Former coach Hue Jackson used the first-round pick in a trade the previous year for Palmer, who was traded by McKenzie to Arizona in a cost-cutting move last week.
Nine first-round picks in the last nine years, and the Raiders have just one of the players used with the nine picks on the roster today. That is all-time incompetence. McKenzie is here to clean up the mess. It's categorically unfair to judge the job he's doing until at least the end of the 2014 season.
I can see why the FO wanted Locker.
A hard working, down to Earth guy who has a big arm.
I have always thought that JK was the "lets pick the opposite of VY's mentality" pick
Good God, that is like the Lions were a few years ago, that is flat out pitiful.
Well, as far as 2011 goes... my wants were probably in this order:
I knew Peterson and Green would be gone, but that's what my top 5 board (for the Titans) would have looked like.
How's that worked out for us so far?
