OT: Raiders rumored to take Calvin Johnson
 
heard it on Dallas sports radio a few minutes ago...

apparently Al wants to take Calvin Johnson and any time Russell's name is brought up he says "we have the number one pick, why would we pass on the number one player in the draft?"

they are also saying that the Raiders are concered with Russell's weight and don't want to pay a ton of money on a QB that is a gamble that big and they can take a decent QB in the top of the second round for cheap...(stanton or smith)

there are also rumors that this is going cause a huge drop in Adrian Peterson's stock and that some mocks now have him going all the way to the #12 pick...can you imagine if Peterson fell to Houston and they decide to pass up on him after they passed on Bush and Young last year?..the fans would cause a riot...

man I can't wait till the draft...

Why post this here? Its just gonna get moved like the recent "OT" topics especially since this isnt major, breaking sports news.

Anyway this is called posturing. Why put any more into it than that?

I don't know much about the draft class because I don't watch college football, but how many times have the Raiders passed up on a QB. Breese, Rivers, Leinart and now another QB? Eh, I'll rather take my chances of finding a good WR in the 2nd round, then pass on a potential Franchise QB.

yeah I hear you but the Raiders would have to pay a ton for a QB and not nearly as much for a WR...and Calvin is a freak of nature and probablly the least risky player in the draft...

he is also considered the best player in the draft...

it is a tough one for them, but they may be making the right decision here

deal the pick. Id take calvin because i dont really trust either of the qbs and either would get killed behind that oline but id look to deal the pick first. the simple solution would have been to draft him and sign david carr but they didnt do that.

i dont know about taking receivers so early in the draft. its one of the easier positions to fill and a lot of times they dont pan out. the three top receivers in the NFL, chad johnson (2nd rd), steve smith (3rd rd), terrell owens (3rd rd)

well there are rumors that Moss might refuse to play as a Raider and Calvin would be great insurance for that...

they need to get a decent deal for Moss....they might be able to get one more 2nd round pick for him or something to heklp out that o-line

I don't agree that those are the top 3 but they are close enough to make your piont...

there are plenty of great recivers to come out of the first round...Moss was the greatest a few years back...

they are saying that there will be a number of decent prospects at thetop of the second round...drew stanton and troy smith

that would be much less expensive for them as well
