UDRFA RG Alex Parsons - USC Signs With The Oakland Raiders

The Oakland Raiders surprised many in the Raider Nation by not drafting a Guard in the draft. While they continued to take DBs they did not take a guard.

I just found out that Alex Parsons - RG - USC has signed with the Oakland Raiders.

Parsons can play any position on the Offensive Line and many in Oakland are hoping that he can push Cooper Carlisle right away.

He also has experience on Special Teams, which will work in his favor. At 6-4 309, he projects as a good fit for Tom Cable's zone blocking scheme. He is probably also a favorite of Al's as he runs a consistent 4.93 40. He was projected to go in the 7th round in this deep draft and I am happy that he is aboard.

From CBS:

04/02/2010 - PRO DAY RESULTS: USC had no shortage of elite prospects at its pro day on Wednesday outdoors on FieldTurf. All 32 teams had representatives in attendance, including Panthers coach John Fox and mutliple offensive and defensive coordinators. G Alex Parsons (6-3 1/2, 305) had a 4.93-average 40, a 26 1/2-inch vertical, an 8-10 broad jump, a 4.55 short shuttle, a 7.67 three-cone drill and 25 bench press reps. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

This UDRFA signing period has been amazing so far and it continues to get better.
