Justin Gilbert 74 overall
Josh Huff WR 71 Overall
Zach Fulton RG 73 Overall
Corey Marshall RE 63 Overall
Tom Savage 72 Overall
Darqueze Dennard DB 74 Overall
Dominique Brown RB 69 Overall
Even though he wasn't my first choice at quarterback, I am very happy with the selection here. Even though he throw power isn't where I want it to be yet he makes up for it in accuracy and athleticism. He will be challenged at QB by David Fales to start the year.
76-OVR THRPWR-80 Short Acc-86 Med Acc-87 Deep Acc-83 Throw on the run-81 Speed-77
I was very pleased with this pick. I went into the draft wanting to add some depth and talent and the linebacker position and I feel I did this with Lamin Barrow. He is listed as a ROLB but could also see some time at MLB next to POZ. Has great awareness for a rookie and will contribute right away. The only downfall is his strength, which I will work on right away.
OVR-79 TAK-80 Hit Power-83 AWR-87 ACC- 89 Speed-76
I was very happy with this pick, I needed some help on my offensive line and I believe I have found it. Even though he played LT at Boise State, I'm pretty solid at left tackle so I will be trying him at right guard to solidify my o-line and maybe work him into the LT position down the road. Will start right away at RG.
OVR-82 Pass Block-81 Run Block-84 Strength-84 Awr-82
I wanted to bring in a second quarterback to contend and push Lynch for the starting job. Fales has excellent size, he is the prototype quarterback. Fales has better throwing power then Lynch but lacks in speed and other athleticism. He also has a better deep ball.
OVR- 72 Throw Power- 85 Short ACC- 84 Med Acc- 86 Deep Acc- 86 Speed- 57(slower than slow)
The rest of my draft was to add much need depth at various positions. Overall I like my draft and excited to see what happens during the season.
I wanted Barrow so bad in the 1st but I couldn't pass up on fuller who nearly fell to the second round....
Couldnt tell you off the top of my head. I wanna say high 70s...not sure.
Round 1 - Cyril Richardson OL
Round 2 - Aaron Colvin DB
Round 3 - Tevin Reese WR
Round 4 - Tyrel Wilson LE
Round 5 - Chris Smith LE
2014 Draft recapThe 2014 Draft for the Oakland Raiders addressed the need to continue building a young foundation for the future. Sure fire Hall of Famer Charles Woodson retired after 16 seasons in the NFL leaving the FS position up for grabs and for once the Raiders were not looking at QB after the emergence of Tyrell Pryor. A very aggressive approach to free agency shows the drive of new team owner, CEO, and commander in chief Thirdalarm. The draft was no different.
MLB CJ Mosley, Alabama 6'2 232
Mosley steps right in to a starting roll in a much improved Raiders Defense and will be expected to be the focal point for the future.
74 ovr 91 tak 84 spd 81 str 83 pmv 87 fmv and Lots of football smarts
RE Trevor Reilly, Utah 6'5 245
Reilly is a bit of a project but with some xp this kid can be molded into a great pass rusher in the NFL
He brings an eye popping 89 block shed and 84 FMV that will leave linemen spinning their heads.
WR Devin Street, Pitt 6'4 190
71 OVR Good size/speed combo with great hands a good fit for going over the middle.
FS Nickoe Whitley, Miss St 6'1 205
72 OVR A head hunter FS who possesses a 81 Hit Pow and 87 ZCV. He has some big shoes to fill with the retirement of Woodson.
In leaving memory of Matt Flynn, what a waste
RG Stetson Burnett, Tulsa 6'4 303
75 OVR Great value at the end of the draft, Burnett brings 82 RBK and 79 PBK and will be in the development stage for the Raiders for a few seasons. This guy once ate 14 corn dogs at a state fair.
WR Shaquelle Evans, UCLA 6'1 201
72 OVR 90 speed and 79 Catch, A prove it guy for the Raiders.
Round 1 - Taylor Martinez QB 73 OVR
With Peyton likely to retire in the next couple of seasons the Broncos looked to add a young arm they could try and develop. He will have to work on his accuracy but T-Mart was one of the smartest QBs in the draft while also adding a mobile element. Throw Power - 80 Med 78 Deep 76, Aware -89, PA - 90, Speed - 85 Acc- 90
Round 2 - Gabe Jackson LG 77 OVR
83 Run 81 Pass 94 Strength - Probably won't start this year, but good enough to make a stacked Broncos roster and help build for the future.
Round 3 - Chris Borland MLB 77 OVR
Some concerns about his lack of speed, but a smart player maker that excels vs the run game.
Got a couple of very, very solid players:
G Brandon Webb, OK St - 77 OVR
C Travis Swanson, Arkansas - 79 OVR
LOLB Shaun Lewis, OK St. - 77 OVR
DE Ben Gardner, Stanford - 77 OVR
But the strangest pick of the night....
QB Marcus Mariota, Oregon - 68 OVR
2nd Round #22 - 54 Overall
86 SPD, 86 Accel, 75 Elu, 81 THP
A quarterback in the 2nd round for the Rams? Really? They still have Sam Bradford - a man they invested years into - and they select a SOPHOMORE, Scrambling QB? WTF???
I realize that Mariota might take awhile to develop - but I intend to use him in certain formations to run the read option - a new wrinkle in the Jim Schwartz offense that Jeff Fisher refused to try - a few times a game.
Although he does not have a strong arm, he is accurate, and can develop into an adequate backup with big play potential with his legs.
Where the Nole rookies at?!
Round 1, 9th Pick
QB Aaron Murray
Murray was rated the best QB on our board and he fell to us at #9. We are very happy to have Aaron and believe he will take us to the next level. His ability to throw further than 10 yards, accurately, gives AP smiles. No stacking of the box will open it up and allow us not to be one dimensional.
73 OVR 88 MAC 88 DAP 97 PA
Round 1, 11th Pick
SS Christian Bryant
We traded aging defensive players Jared Allen and Chad Greenway for the 11th pick in the 1st round to the Tennessee Titans. With the need to replace MLB, LOLB, G and SS we chose Christian Bryant. Our thoughts were that he wouldn't be available in the 2nd round. Bryant will be a great compliment to Harrison Smith. He takes the job from Jamarca Sanford and improves our secondary. His coverage skills are a big step from what we've had.
78 OVR 73 MCV 85 ZCV 81 PRC 84 PRS 94 PUR 83 TAK
86 SPD 91 ACC
Round 2, 9th Pick
MLB Jack Tyler
In the 2nd, we chose to go with Jack Tyler over MLBs Chris Borland and Shayne Skov who were both projected to be taken before Jack. We felt he was actually rated better than both. Tyler will jump ahead of newly aquired Akeem Jordan and start in a young Vikings defense. We look for Tyler to have a great career in Purple and Gold.
76 OVR 89 TAK 80 SPD 80 ACC 83 PUR 85 PRC 95 INJ 81
Round 3, 9th Pick
CB Broderick Jenkins
Jenkins is definitely a sleeper. While he doesn't have break away speed, he has that football IQ that cannot be taught. He comes in with better coverage skills than any Viking defender. He also has the best pursuit and awareness. A great find in the 3rd round.
76 OVR 86 MCV 89 ZCV 82 PRC 92 PUR 71 TAK 70 POW 81 AWR
Round 4, 9th Pick
MLB Caleb Lavey
Needing some depth at linebacker, we decided to pull the trigger on someone we thought was underrated and better than his projection indicated. Lavey may start at LOLB and is actually as good or if not better than Jack Tyler in some areas.
74 OVR 87 TAK 80 POW 89 AWR 80 BSH 87 PRC 72 ZCV
Round 5, 9th Pick
LG Spencer Gerke
Gerke won't start right out the gates but he will have a chance to compete with Jeff Baca. Gerke brings in some versatility on the offensive line as he has played other positions while at Boise State.
73 OVR 81 RBK 84 PBK 80 IBL 84 STR 86 ACC 95 TGH
Round 6, 9th Pick
CB Deshazor Everett
Solid name, solid pick up in the 6th round. Nice size at 6'0 181 pounds. Comes in with the highest rated zone coverage on the team, already. A very gritty defender who isn't afraid to put a helmet on a guy.
73 OVR 81 MCV 90 ZCV 84 PRC 80 PRS 84 PUR 73 TAK
Check out the 2nd round pick out of FSU!
Reminds me of another hard hittin', high motor, DB drafted from a school in Florida, R.I.P. #21 Sean Taylor (of the U)!
HAHAHA, Was gonna take him too, he was my #1 center on my board based on my draft position, it worked out for me
Yeah there were a couple pretty good centers available - I took him early but I had a big need and he will be my starter probably throughout GS.

ATLANTA FALCONS: THE NEW BREED
Its no secret that the Atlanta Falcons have built a Super Bowl caliber offense, but along the way, someone forgot to tell them that you have to actually stop someone at some point in time. For that reason, The Falcons staff devoted 5 of their 7 picks to the defensive side of the ball. That being said, this year's draft featured a turn to the era of the old. So without delay, here are your 2013 Falcon rookies:
RD 1 ROLB
KEY ATTRIBUTES: 80 SPD, 86 ACC, 94 AWR, 82 TAC
Spencer is penciled in as starter from Day 1. He will add an athletic and physical presence to a defense that lets just face it...........DOESN'T!!!
RD 2 DE
KEY ATTIBUTES: BLK SH 82, 80 FMV, 85 PUR
Ford was a surprise talent for The Falcons. He also brings a toughness to the team and will battle Thaddeus Gibson to play along side RE Osi Umenyiora.
RD 3 ROLB
KEY ATTIBUTES: 87 TAK, 88 POW, 82 PUR
With so many great LB's from the University of Florida State having made their mark in the NFL, there is no reason why Jones cant be the next in line for stardom. He has freakish talent and will push Shuey for a starting position.
RD 4 LEFT TACKLE
KEY ATTRIBUTES: 84 RBLK, 89 IMP BLK, 82 AWR
This was truely a "best available" pick for The Falcons. He has surprisingly good mechanics and will probably sit and learn the game behind veteran O lineman. He can however, play if need be.
