ALAMEDA -- Day 1 of the draft is over.
The Raiders didnít trade back into the second round, so they have Darren McFadden to show a dayís work.
Canít complain too much about the pick. Lane Kiffin said McFadden was their man all along.
Heís definitely a fit in the system. But with the amount of money that will be committed to him (Iím guessing the guaranteed amount will be in the $25 million range) you have to assume that if he signs before Week 2 of the season, he will play a lot.
Hereís what that could mean for the other running backs.
Justin Fargas: Heíll still get his work in as the battering ram of the group. Heíll beat up defenders who will then have to chase down McFadden.
Dominic Rhodes: Might be returning kickoffs next season.
Michael Bush: Short-yardage work.
LaMont Jordan: Waiting for the Raiders to free him.
The Raiders donít pick until the fourth round tomorrow, barring a trade. They also have a sixth and two seventh rounders.
They dealt this year's third rounder to get Mario Henderson last year. The fifth-round pick was dealt to land DT Gerard Warren from Denver.
Defenisve end and receiver could be areas that are addressed.
But I'm about to go to the Titans web site and order a Jason Jones jersey.
