I watched the Cable press conference from 4/15 and Jerry Mac and Corkeran were asking questions and kind of trying to wrangle Cable into an actual answer about the 1st pick.
He didn’t give an exact answer but he did say some interesting things.
1. O Line is first priority,
2. They want a guy who can start right away,
3. They won’t trade forward but might trade back,
4. They’ve received offers for the 8 pick and if the right deal came by they’ll go for it,
5. The guy doesn’t have to be a tackle, he could be an interior guy.
Am I nuts for thinking it sounds like my favorite pick Mike Iupati. Might he be the guy the Raiders are interested in for the 1st pick.
It could be that Cable is just blowing smoke, but I’m hoping for a little sanity for once.
