First off, as an alum of a Pac-10 school, I will boycott the BCS title game if Ohio State gets in again by winning the Big Ten (err, 11) and beating three other colleges in Ohio.
But since it’s almost impossible for me to watch college football without seeing which players might fit with the Raiders, that’s what I did last night.
If Glenn Dorsey is available, the Raiders have to draft him.
I’d advocate trading up to get him, but chances are that would mean giving up high picks in this year’s draft, and possibly next year’s No. 1 pick.
The Raiders already don’t have their third round pick, having traded it to acquire Mario Henderson last year in the third round.
Then the Raiders didn’t come close to playing Mario Henderson. Go figure.
And with the Raiders not likely to be 12-4 next season, that would be an awfully high pick to give up next year.
I love how Dorsey plays along the line of scrimmage against the run. He doesn’t avoid blockers, rather he controls them and makes plays in the run game. Dorsey did this while facing constant double teams.
I was disappointed not to be able to watch more of Craig Steltz, the LSU safety that was injured during the game.
The Raiders need another safety and I wanted to see him play. Early Doucet wouldn't look bad as a Raider, but he'd probably have to fall to the second round for the Raiders to take him. They wouldn't take him high in the first round.
