I've never seen Dysert, since I could care less about MAC football. I watch a ton of SEC football, and a few assorted games here or there. I don't know anything about him, except he's considered a 2-3 round pick.
I've seen Nassib over the years since his Syracuse Orange play against Rutgers, my alma mater. I've never been particularly impressed by him... just in case you (or anyone else) was wondering.
If Miami (Oh) is playing in a bowl, I might check it out.
I'll say this - I'd trade a 3rd rounder for Kirk Cousins. I really believe he's got the potential to be a really, really good QB - and the Shanahan system is essentially what Dennis Allen is trying to run in Oakland.

Wins by Carolina, Cleveland, Philadelphia, and San Diego increase our chance of the lowest pick possible.
a loss against the chiefs will almost guarantee a 2nd pick because i dont see wins against panthers and chargers for us. considering the jags have dolphins and titans left on their schedule one win by them we get the first. Basically if we are tied with the chiefs and jags at 3 wins at the end of the season we get the 1 overall pick. the tiebreakers aren't h2h matchups. It is based on the strength of schedule of the PREVIOUS season. the raiders had the easiest so they will be given the 1 pick. boy that would do wonders for the raiders.
1st round for seymour, 1st and 2nd for palmer. thats 3 starters that could have contributed for many years
I'm not sold on Allen, however. He gets a second year, IMO, but Reggie should make sure Allen gets a... uh... "qualified" replacement at offensive coordinator.
I like Mornhinweg - good OC, he interviewed for the Raider head coaching job, he's got head coaching experience... in case of emergency, he'd suffice as an interim (or full-time) replacement, IMO.
I wouldn't mind someone from Minnesota coming to Oakland and teaching the Raiders their blocking techniques, either. The Vikings run game is dominant, versatile and consistent - it's the O/L, not AD, who impresses me in that scheme.
finally an off-season to get excited about! Time to shedd the salary and stack picks and finally build this team the right way!
^^^^ the problem is , that is easier said, than done.
But just being able to have options of cutting players without Cap-hits is gonna be huge. We're already getting a top 5 pick(trade down!) and hopefully we can make a couple more trades and luckily get a few good picks.
You're right it's easier said then done, and the RM & FO have a lot of work to do in the off-season. I believe they can do it and turn this franchise around.
Expecting a lot of Raider activity this off-season.
