Raiders perfect their 2012 Draft by selecting LB Nathan Stupar

The Raiders decided to use two of their six draft picks on LBs - which makes perfect sense when your team is one of the worst in the league against the rush (#29) - and so Oakland chose S.D. State's Miles Burris with its 2nd pick of the draft and Penn State's 6'2" 241lb OLB, Nathan Stupar, with its sixth pick. Nathan had 100 solo tackles in his four years playing for the Nittany Lions - a school famous for producing LBs and the alma mater of both the Raiders Center, Stefen Wisniewski and the Raiders' 3rd pick in the draft, DE Jack Crawford.

Stupar loves the game and enjoys STs just as much as LB; he recorded 73 tackles during his last epic year of which 7 were TFL and had 2 sacks, a forced fumble and broke up a half-dozen passes. Nathan made several huge plays, for example against one of Penn's toughest opponents - Temple - he picked off a pass and returned it for a chip shot winning field-goal (though he shared his glory by allowing the kicker to put it through). That's only one of actually several big game plays our newest LB had. Like all Reggie McKenzie draftees, Stupar is also a smart dude. He earned Academic All-Big Ten honors three times in a row.
