|Raiders Take JaMarcus Russell First Overall
As many people expected, the Raiders will take LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell first overall. Russell has tremendous talent and his mental game is great. He has the size and strength to make it in the NFL. The Raiders looked into trading down the first pick, but couldn't find a deal worth taking. It looks like Randy Moss will not be playing in Oakland this season, so the Raiders may have to look into a receiver in round two. The Raiders have a lot of needs and this one pick will not make them a playoff team yet. Their defense has gotten a lot better in the past few seasons and the offense has some talent. It doesn't help that they have to play the Chargers, the Broncos, and the Chiefs twice a year.
As you can see the card at the right, I will be making a card using a madden screenshot for each player picked in round one
