I see things differently. I read an interview where Pryor talked about his second season, and he was talking about competing for the starter job. This kid made a mistake in college, he didnt fight dogs, or shoot himself in the leg, he didn't threaten someone with a gun. He sold stuff, 40k worth of it.. and people are easy to write him off. I think he's gonna shock a lot of people that forgot what he did at Ohio.

Just signed a TE, sort of... "basketball player Andre Hardy as TE"

@Indy! @oaklandraider @Spartacus not only tht Favre was also a brute he'd lead block, he'd stay in the pocket and get crushed. He played hurt. Brett is a rare type of QB. I do believe Palmer has quite a few years infront of him, comparing him to Brett maybe jumping the gun a bit.

@Raiderdraftnik @Masquerader24 he's got tremendous upside, #EastCoastRaiderNation hopes he delivers.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4pVXueXAc4 Ausberry last year doing blocking and route drills, great footwork and has a nastiness to him. He's #9 on the game footage, the person whom made the video didn't highlight him prior to snaps so you have to watch it closely.
Ausberry will break out this year. i said it here first. He may of been a WR and HB during college, but his past will help his future as a TE. He can block and knows how to run routes, get open and make plays. He has the size and all the talent in the world. this offseason/preseason is about how he decides to value his time to bulk up and get better. i believe he'll blow up like a A. Hernandez and can be moved to slot, outside, and even tailback.
@Raiderdraftnik @Masquerader24 @adamlemoyne Kaddu has the Raider attitude, I can't deny that. His aggressive play will get flags at the next level, something the Raider's need to address. Mclain already body slams people, yeah it's cool to watch. But it's 10-15 yards everytime... Kaddu has the speed and the sideline to sideline spence has. I just am hoping the team gets rid of the stupid penalties that's plagued us for years.
@Raiderdraftnik I just think hes a good fit for what Allen wants to bring to the D. he has the speed to line up in the nickel and dime, hes got instinct for the 3-4 and the skill to play in a 4-3. He's exactly what we need to play in the middle of the field in Allen's extensive defense.@Masquerader24 @adamlemoyne
Also with Coach Allens Secondary coaching background, I wouldn't be shocked if the 95th pick went CB
and if so I hope its this guy
DeQuan Menzie, CB, Alabama (5-11, 202)
youtube him. he's nasty
I have to disagree with your 95th overall pick.
I agree however, with a linebacker.
Miami outside linebacker Sean Spence, projected to be taken somewhere around the late third round.
"An extremely football-smart, interchangeable, three-position linebacker and four-year starter who always could be most ideally suited for a backup role. Could make a living as a core special-teams player. Always will be best if he's protected and free to roam," says Pro Football Weekly.
Wes Bunting of the National Football Post says:
A gifted sideline-to-sideline athlete who can play in space and make plays off his frame. Size is a concern, but looks like a starter in a cover two scheme who can play three downs in the NFL.
Sideline Scouting says:
Positives -- One of the most athletic linebackers in this year's draft class, has fluidity, speed and quickness in nearly every facet of the game... Flies all over the field, plays with intensity and passion for the game, willingness to give effort not an issue. ... ay find best fit as a cover linebacker on passing downs, NFL coaches should be intrigued by coverage ability, could see immediate playing time on passing downs and special teams.
Negatives -- Below average height for an NFL linebacker, is also very thin, definitely needs to bulk up to ensure durability and productivity as an every-down player at the next level... Does not fit the mold of durable NFL linebackers, is more of a tweener prospect, fit and versatility a bit of a question mark, there were some rumblings prior to this season that he may project better as a strong safety at the next level.
Although undersized, he makes up for this deficiency through speed, instincts and overall athletic ability. He is a great defender on outside runs, as he can effortlessly run down the ACC's fastest players. He is stellar in coverage, can blanket tight ends and tackle from various angles. He makes quick decisions and executes on them. While size will be a concern as he enters the NFL, Spence will be defined by his ability to play free and get off blocks to make plays on the ball. While he was suspended in the fallout from the Nevin Shapiro booster scandal at Miami, there is little doubt of his true character and likewise, his overall athleticism and ability in terms of production translating to the NFL. Look for him to be taken in the mid-rounds.
