    JPP, Campbell, Haden

    One of them IMO will probably be a Raider

      Seeing as how he fills a bigger need than JPP and Mays, I really think he'll go with Campbell right now.

        If he's taken by Seattle at #6.

          If he's available I would be shocked if they passed on him. He's fits everything. Great physical specimen. Check. Great Athleticism. Check. He might as well start looking for houses in California

            The thing is, no one really knows how Oakland feels about their tackle situation. Personally, I'd love to see someone come in and replace Henderson, but the coaching staff seemed largely happy with his play in 2009. Does Oakland draft a RT to finally replace Cornell Green with that #8 pick? Probably not, and if they do, I would imagine they'd take more of a road-grader like Davis or even Williams.

            I think that Oakland likely views CB and DL as being greater needs at this point, so it just depends on how much they take to a guy like Pierre-Paul or Haden/Berry (whichever one Cleveland passes on). I'd like to believe that Dez Bryant would be a possibility, but it seems unlikely.

              I could definitely see us go Joe Haden, and I would like it.

                It will come down to JPP, Haden, Campbell, Mays, or Eric Berry. I'm thinking JPP at this point.

                <@JBond> So you get no 5 dollars

                  I have a gut feeling that they won't make an epic reach for a guy like Campbell this year. Last year they did with Heyward-Bey, but he's a WR, Campbell is a tackle and he has a lot more holes in his game than the other 4 OTs who are better than him that are good enough to be top ten picks. I won't be the least bit surprised (in fact I kind of expect it to some degree) if Oakland takes Campbell, but gut feeling says that they take Bulaga, Davis, Williams, Pierre Paul, or a DB over Campbell.

                    That being said, DHB was 254th in the NFL last season for receptions with 9 (for 124 yards). Sure, he landed in a one of the worst QB situations in the NFL, but he failed to make a number of plays that Percy Harvin, Austin Collie, Michael Crabtree, Hakeem Nicks, Jeremy Maclin, Kenny Britt, Johnny Knox, Mike Wallace, Louis Murphy, or Brian Hartline would have made.

                    Hell, sure the QB situation in Oakland is bad, but when you're a top 10 pick, the first player picked at your position, and you get completely outplayed by a fourth round pick who plays your same position on your own team (Louis Murphy), something has gone very wrong.

                    Never bet against the Raiders to do something inexplicable.

                      this sounds accurate... Al Davis got burned bad taking Robert Gallery and I dont think he's willing to gamble on OT again... not to mention bruce campbell has played like a 4th round and only started 17 games at Maryland. and even the games he played were spotty... He got beat like a drum against Middle Tennessee State, not exactly a top program.
                      my shoes hurt

                        Al Davis has been burned by a lot of horrible draft picks doesn't mean he won't take another player at that position

                        took Doug Jolly in 02 and failed and took Zach Miller in 07

                        took Derrick Gibson in 01 and failed and took Michael Huff in 06

                        Yes he loves to reach for players but 99 percent of the time its a player that feels a need even tho 99 percent of the time its the wrong player.And anybody will tell you OT is oaklands number 1 need.

                        Greg Gross @VittorioTafur Al Davis' scholarship program has died with him. With Hue, it's nothing personal, and nothing sentimental, either. It's gladiator school now. Perform or perish., period.

                          Except perhaps Al Davis and Tom Cable...

                            I think last year they felt that Mario Henderson might really progress and have a break through year. But then Brian Orakpo came along and completely and utterly destroyed that notion.

                              Right, because that had nothing to do with JaMarcus Russell holding onto the ball for-*******-ever.

                              I'm not going to suggest that Oakland can't do better than Henderson. But I'm far from sold that the coaching staff or front office feels that Henderson is a lost cause.

                                Meanwhile Russell might be.
