    It not being easy ... and it not being easy for the Raiders front office are two completely different things.

    I'm not arguing for or against the ZBS, just want to make a logical point. Beside McFadden, we have relatively little data on our run game. Here it is ...

    RUSHING STATISTICS
    Player Att Yds Yds/Att Long TD
    Darren McFadden 139 455 3.3 64 2
    Mike Goodson 17 111 6.5 43 0
    Marcel Reece 14 48 3.4 9 0
    Carson Palmer 13 28 2.2 9 1
    Jeremy Stewart 7 22 3.1 6 0
    Taiwan Jones 3 8 2.7 3 0
    Darrius Heyward-Bey 2 16 8.0 20 0
    Shane Lechler 2 0 0.0 0 0
    Owen Schmitt 1 2 2.0 2 0

    Plus, Goodson is a guy we got for Bruce Campbell, those were stewart's first rushing attempts in NFL I think, and Reece is a converted WR/FB playing HB?

    I would be really interested to see what a quality NFL RB not named McFadden could do behind our line.

    id like to show my early mock draft and get your guys opinions im going with the raiders having the 7th pick in the draft for the sake of this mock

    1st(7th)-Manti Te'o LB NOTRE DAME, Drafting Te'o over DE Sam montgomery is a hard one for me. However, I think that there is deep DT availability throughout the draft, and finding a sure fire mlb is hard as we all know with mcclain. This pick seems a lot safer to me than rolando, TE'O is a great, big linebacker with sideline to sideline range, and he also great instincts, whch seems to be haunting mcclain. This pick could change the culture of our defense and seems like one of the safest picks in the draft. we have heard that before (huff,mcclain,mcfadden) but im willing to take the risk

    2nd-Traded for Palmer

    3rd-Prentiss Wagner CB Tennessee- Solid corner from tennesse, only two interceptions this year, but is a great tackler and always seems to be around the ball, our defense needs secondary help the most and the third round seems like a must to draft a corner.

    4th-Jonathan Franklin RB UCLA- over 1,000 yards 3 years in a row, great elusive back could be a good fit for us. We may have bigger needs but i think running back is just a big as any of them, and in the 4th round finding a back with franklins talent is huge.

    5th-none

    6th-Dave kruger DT UTAH, Big gap filling DT late round flier on this guy.

    Really don't like the idea of taking a MLB that early. Haven't seen the other players specifically, but the positions you pick at are reasonable. We need more than 4 players in this draft.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we landed a player from Texas A&M. Either OT - Luke Joekel or DE - Damontre Moore.

    I'm all for trading down, but I don't think there is much hope for that. Not sure what kind of friends Reggie has around the league who are willing to give him a fair deal.

    I kinda like that other DT from Utah.
    With so many holes to fill it will be hard to argue with whatever direction we go.
    If we took Joeckel in the first and moved Veldheer to the right side I wouldn't be upset.
    Lotulelei or Te'o would be good with me.
    I know we need DB help, but I seriously don't want a DB in the first round with our other needs.

Im not sold on Barkley or Geno and I think both will be average QB's in the NFL, it would suck to waste top 5 pick on a QB who might be average. IMO i think we should trade the our high draft pick to acquire more picks and maybe trade DMac.

    DMac is not worth 1st rd pick due to injuries he constantly gets, maybe we can get a late second rounder and a 5th rounder. Its easy to finds RB's especially if we stick with the ZBS.

    Team Needs: DT, DE, OG, OT, OLB, MLB, TE, WR, CB, FS, SS, and QB

    What do you guys think?
    Trade Mcfadden?? no
    and for needs you pretty much put they whole team besides our Kickers....

    Star Lotulelei and Big John Hankins have had good seasons the past two years. If one is available, I say take them; otherwise trade down.

    If we move to a 3-4 (which I'm praying for) we will need to sign/pick quite a few big d-lineman.
