As draft day approaches there are lot of potential gems waiting for the Oakland Raiders in the late rounds . When round six comes around the Raiders could be looking at talent along the lines of OLB Tank Carder TCU , DT Derek Wolfe Cincy , OT Levy Addock Ok. St. , OG Desmond Wynn Rutgers , defensive backs such as Omar Bolden Az. St. , Mike Harris Fl. St. , Cliff Harris Oregon , and I'm sure everyone in Raider Nation has about twenty more names that could be added to the list of potential sixth round draft prospects .
Enter the wild card . The Philadelphia Eagles have announced CB Asante Samuel is available for a sixth round pick . A prospect comes with no guarantee they will ever develop into a NFL caliber starter . Samuel has shown he is capable of starting in the NFL . Bartell is coming off a neck injury , and plays with reckless abandon when he takes the field . Something I love about him as a player . That said with his injury , and style of play , there is a question when it comes to his durability . Spencer is another talented corner with injury issues. Everyone Else on the Oakland roster is an enigma wrapped in a question mark . We just don't know which of these dogs will hunt , and which wont .
Add to the equation Peyton Manning will be running the same no huddle offense he ran in Indy . Samuels would add a veteran insurance policy , and give us the depth to handle some of these multiple receiver sets that are all the rage in the NFL today . Is it worth a sixth round pick to add a play maker to the Raider secondary ? Since Oakland has said they will draft the best player available regardless of position , the argument could be made that Asante Samuel could be the best player available with our sixth round pick .
