      Talk all the sh*t you want, Vic Tafur knows his stuff when it comes to the Raiders.  And he's not the type to publish something for the sake of getting hits.

      I see Oakland taking Watkins, Evans or Lewan. After trading for Schaub there’s a better chance they go QB in the 2nd round.

      I would be surprised if they took a QB. I bet they trade down with somebody trying to jump Atlanta for an OT.

      As much as Roy and Rick know the Bucs...

      I wonder how many GMs share their draft plans with the local hacks?

      Raiders are in win now mode with the moves they made. I could see them taking a WR in round 1 and drafting a QB later on

      Who knows what is true or not but “team sources” only leak info they want to be publically known the week of the draft to the beat writers. If this is true and they do covet Watkins for example, why let teams know that they won’t take a QB at #5 and give them a chance to trade up before them

      Please let them take Evans… he will be just another Raiders bust.

      I think the Raiders will trade for Glennon and the Bucs will pick Manziel.

      FWIW (not much?), Charlie Campbell posted the same thing two days ago on WalterFootball.com.  And the way he gushes about Greg Olson makes me wonder if he’s his source.

      Everyone in Oakland’s building has their job on the line this year, they just traded for Schaub to be the starter and went after several veterans in free agency. They are not drafting a QB at 5, in fact I don’t think they take any QB at all. They need a winning season this year and an immediate impact player, not someone to sit behind Schaub right now.

      Why would they come out with this report now? You think they just finished evaluating the top of the draft? Likely a smokescreen, but time will tell.

      I don't believe anyone who's job is on the line would feel comfortable handing the job over to Schaub on a silver platter. LOLThere's a reason they traded Pryor a few weeks ago . Making room for the new guy. If it's not at 5 it will be with their 2nd pick.

      While we’re on the topic of bulletproof media reports:http://nfltraderumors.co/report-texans-not-100-percent-sold-on-jadeveon-clowney/Report: Texans Not 100 Percent Sold On Jadeveon ClowneyIan Rapoport reports that after discussing the idea of the Texans drafting Jadeveon Clowney with the No. 1 overall pick with people close to GM Rick Smith, it’s “no longer a certainty” that he is the first pick.Rapoport adds that the team isn’t “100 percent sold” on Clowney and are willing to trade out of the top spot.This coincides with what Peter King mentioned last week. Both King and Rapoport specifically mentioned Buffalo LB Khalil Mack as a name to watch in regards to Houston.Of course, the Texans could still take a quarterback with their first-round pick, but King still expects them to come away with more of a “sure thing.”Interestingly enough, Auburn OT Greg Robinson could still be in the mix for them, but some have suggested that he would most likely be an option only if they were to move back.At the very least, this sets up some serious intrigue in the days leading up to Thursday’s draft.We have Clowney going No. 1 overall for now in our recently updated 2014 NFL Mock Draft, but that could change in our final mock draft that will be posted on Wednesday.

      I cant breathe thru all of this smoke…….Browns could be plotting to snag a tacklePosted by Mike Florio on May 4, 2014, 8:45 PM EDTWhen Browns G.M. Ray Farmer openly gushed about receiver Sammy Watkins, it became clear that Farmer hopes someone takes Watkins before the Browns pick at No. 4 — unless Farmer has gone next level with his smokescreening.Assuming Farmer was engaging in a more basic misdirection, the question becomes who do the Browns want, if they don’t want a wideout?Despite a glaring need at quarterback, the Browns could be planning to take a tackle.  Even with Joe Thomas anchored on the left side and center Alex Mack in place at big money for the next two years, Super Bowl XLVIII established conclusively the importance of having quality pass blockers on each side of the line.  The idea of the right tackle being more of a road-grading run blocker than an athletic bookend to the blind-side protector could be on the verge of becoming obsolete.So that puts the Browns in play for Greg Robinson (pictured), Jake Matthews, or Taylor Lewan.  And it could mean that two or three tackles could be gone by the time the Raiders pick at No. 5, just like last year when three of the first four picks were tackles.Then, the Browns can draft their next quarterback with the 26th pick in round one — or perhaps trade back up into the teens to get him.http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/05/04/browns-could-be-plotting-to-snag-a-tackle/

      Translated.  The Texans are already working behind the scenes to get Clowney signed prior to the draft.

      There still might be a chance. VJax, Watkins, and ASJ. That would be a sick core for McCown.

      How would signing him before the draft help, rookie salaries are slotted?

      I could also see them surprising and going with Evans instead. They have quick smallish wr's now with Denarious Moore and Jones. A big strong #1 like Evans may be the better compliment to those guys.
