Why Do The Raiders Get To Go On The Clock?

I'm just saying? Shouldn't they have to just make the damn pick at noon? They've had 3 months to figure this thing out. Somehow I think that should suffice. Sounds like a blog-law to me.

Whatdya think?

Jason, you are killing us with new posts. How about having one thread for the first round and you can add in-line comments?

Who is worse Deion or Meshawn?

Posted by: calebt17 | April 28, 2007 12:05 PM | Report abuse

Meshawn is the worst, by far. At least Deion can be midly amusing from time to time. I just want to smack Meshawn -- right in the back of his damn head.

Whoever has the number one overall pick should have 5 minutes to make their pick once they are on the clock

Posted by: Frank | April 28, 2007 12:08 PM | Report abuse

No, I like all the posts. The Raiders should pick immediately. I can't help but watch the draft, but it's already too long!

Posted by: Joe The Fan | April 28, 2007 12:08 PM | Report abuse

cdubb, if you take away Jones' 77 yd run, his average is something like 3.4. Yeah, if he gets a 100 yds, he gets 200. But he needs blocking, he won't attack anybody, and he'll fall over in a light breeze.

Barber3 has a nose for the end zone, but I'm not convinced. On Cowboys blogs he is known as THam2 (that's a Troy Hambrick reference, for the uninitiated).

James Joyce, errrrrrrrr, Ocho-Ocho is in the (yawn) house!

Good morning JLaC! Hope you and your family are well. How is Baby Rocco doing?

Hi Cyn Cyty! Glad you survived New York. Did you buy Maske a pulse while you were there?

Okay, bring on the Draft!

Posted by: Ocho-Ocho | April 28, 2007 12:12 PM | Report abuse

With the first overall pick, I would like to announce a trade. The Oakland raiders trade with the Washington Redskins and acquire Calvin Johnson. (Vinny's last revenge) He gave up the next two years of our first rounders.

Posted by: Frank (Los Angeles) | April 28, 2007 12:13 PM | Report abuse

SMACK - Yep, that's the game.

Posted by: kost52 | April 28, 2007 12:13 PM | Report abuse

kost,

Since they haven't dumped Randy Moss yet, I would be surprised if they didn't take JR.

Posted by: JustMe | April 28, 2007 12:13 PM | Report abuse

Best part of the draft so far?

NO CHRIS BERMAN!!!

Geez, I hate that guy.

We have exhausted the options for the Skins at #6. what does everybody think about the positions and prospects fo tomorrow's picks?

Posted by: BT | April 28, 2007 12:15 PM | Report abuse

Frank,

Those 1st round picks wouldn't be enough. They just said on the NFL Network that Al Davis asked the Browns for their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd this year and their 1st next year to move up to #1.

Posted by: JustMe | April 28, 2007 12:15 PM | Report abuse

Ocho, I like Chris....He must be on a cigarette break. He's there.

Posted by: Frank (Los Angeles) | April 28, 2007 12:16 PM | Report abuse

Moss refused their request to restructure to facilitate a trade. LOL He still has 2 years/$20mill left on his deal, w/ $11mill guaranteed. Yikes.

Posted by: JustMe | April 28, 2007 12:18 PM | Report abuse

My most recent 'couch-ridden belly-jiggling chuckle moment' of the draft broadcast on ESPN so far: The information ticker listing Adam Archuleta as a key loss for the Skins.

Come on, Raiders - get on with it already!

jaws is looking snappy with the lime green tie! and yes, i'm already critiquing wardrobes because nothing noteworthy is happening yet...

Posted by: [cc] | April 28, 2007 12:18 PM | Report abuse

Just Me...Totally kidding. I would hate it if we moved up to the first pick. There is a lot of risk going that high.

Posted by: Frank (Los Angeles) | April 28, 2007 12:18 PM | Report abuse

JustMe - That's crazy! It's seems that they are looking to draft Russell unless they can rob somebody for an crazy deal.

Survey Answers:

NFL Draft in other cities? Yes. Send it to NFL cities which aren't part of the Super Bowl rotation, as some suggested.

Super Bowl outside of the U.S.? No!

First pick done. No Surprises there. Now I reckon the Lions trade with the Bucs, and the Bucs take C.Johnson

Big Surprise!!!! I guess we will see how it goes on this pick. Lets see if Milan can blow this one.

I like JaMarcus' wardrobe choice, altho I think a two-button jacket would have been better.

Posted by: Cindy | April 28, 2007 12:26 PM | Report abuse

Maybe Detroit will draft a kicker with the #2 pick. At least it wouldn't be another receiver.

Posted by: Ocho-Ocho | April 28, 2007 12:26 PM | Report abuse

I am surprised that Peterson is not projected higher. I think he could be a HOF running back.

Calvin Johnson is going to be a great player, but you have to have somebody to throw the ball to him...

someone needs to tell Calvin Johnson you should only wear one lapel pin. i'm also not digging the tie that seems to be made from the same material as his suit...

I think unsigned meant Millen, not AC Milan.

Posted by: dealer | April 28, 2007 12:28 PM | Report abuse

If they take him, it must be to trade him. They already have R.Williams and M.Furrey. But then again, it is Millen. I think he's the only person in the NFL that us redskins can justly scorn!

This is the toughest one to pick I think, and it could make or break us. Quinn, Thomas, or Peterson.

I don't mean any harm, but I'm seeing a lot of folks who could use this contract money to get some dental work (JaMarcus Russell's mama, Calvin Johnson....).

Looks like the Lions aren't gonna trade CJ. Fate is conspiring to ensure that the Redskins do something responsible with their pick. I'm feeling okay so far.

dante - not unless they still trade up to draft CJ, before realizing he has already been picked.

Posted by: BT | April 28, 2007 12:39 PM | Report abuse

Adam Schefter just reported that Detroit IS NOT going to trade Calvin Johnson. They are keeping him. Most likely they will trade Mike Williams to TN (or another of their WRs)>

Posted by: Lisa | April 28, 2007 12:39 PM | Report abuse

justme, you're not being mean. but it has nothing to do with having money. it's commitment issue. so far in his life him having dental work done[read wearing braces for a year or so] hasn't outweighed comfort.

but when his agent tells him "hey, wear braces for a year or so and you'll be making $10 million in ad revenue". and i'm pretty sure he'll do it then especially if he's good as everyone thinks he will be.

Posted by: dealer | April 28, 2007 12:40 PM | Report abuse

Not trying to be mean, but is that Brady Quinn's girlfriend? If so, he can do much better, and probably will once he signs his contract.

At #22 if they do something stupid, not many people will notice. Besides, Cowboys have lots of needs anyway, yes?
