While i still believe it is far too early to determine if these players will pan out or not, it would really worry me if i were a raiders or jets fan...actually regardless of the draft picks i would be worried if i was a raiders fan:eek:

What a f'idiot.

McFadden has the look of an absolute star.

This is the same guy that said Cutler would be, by far, the worst QB of the 3 first round QB's that year.

Ravage!!!

Everythign I've read so far about him, shows that he doesn't look like a star at all. He can't make single defenders miss, and drops the ball.

I've read the opposite. He's been stellar in camp. Some scouts and analysts look like he could have a rookie season similiar to AP in terms of production, but likely won't get the ball as much.

He's easily been the best RB in Oakland, and the concerns about his character have been completely fabricated. He's been a complete team player, and he's picked up the playbook and reads a lot faster than they thought he would.

I'd take a chance on both those busts right now, besides, I'm sure the Jets and Raiders GM's know more than whoever wrote this opinion piece.

At least, that's what people keep telling me......

"Gholston looks like a street free agent."--The Sporting News Journalist says.

I wonder if Jake Long disagrees......

McFadden looked fine in the preseason. He followed blockers, evaded a few tacklers, and ate up some yards. He didn't look STELLAR but he looked alright. I guess if a team was short on RBs, McFadden could come into the league as a starter but he's no Adrian Peterson

Who wrote that is a bust. McFadden will compete for OROY and Gholston might be struggling because he switched to OLB, but busts? Time for the coffee gif :coffee:
