Eagles fan here. I sent out an earlier post explaining that we're doing a fan mock draft on Bleeding Green Nation, and I am representing the Raiders for their second round pick. In the first round you guys went OL with Bruce Campbell (I know, and trust me I hated the pick also. I would have taken Brian Bulaga, Rolando McClain, or Joe Haden there).
Right now we're on the clock, and some 1st round talent has dropped to us. I had pencilled in Linval Joseph at this pick, but there are some other potentially excellent candidates to choose from:
Brian Price - DT - UCLA - More of a pass-rusher than run-stuffer, but still an exceptional force.
Everson Griffen - DE - USC - Excellent pass-rusher with above human talent, but more of a smaller cannon-ball type DE.
Jermaine Gresham - TE - Oklahoma - Rare play-making talent at TE. Exceptional speed and would completely open up the middle of the field for you guys, taking some heat of the receivers and potentially opening up some lanes in the running game.
I know with OL taken care of in the 1st round (well, somewhat), that defense is the obvious direction to go here, but I get the feeling that in this mock draft with players like Griffen and Price falling, there should be a good-to-great DT candidate (Joseph, Thomas, Atkins) available at your 3rd round pick. I'm personally leaning towards Gresham, but I'd like your take.
I have to get the pick in by this evening, and I'll send you all the link with the write-up once it is posted.
