    Reggie and DA have been extremely quiet in their dealings...

    What makes you people think they all of the sudden are letting people know who they like or are hot for?

    This guy writes for bleacherreport and is a "analyst" for Madden 13.... #FAIL

    If this is true Reggie's has to be the dumbest person alive.
    Damn, Reggie is a genious. He is letting it leak that the Raiders are interested in Geno Smith to drum up trade interest for the #3 pick.

    Not really... if anything, it will force a team to trade up to #2 if they intend to get Geno Smith.

    And, let's be honest - Geno isn't my choice, but if Reggie drafts him, I'll roll with it. I sucked it up when DHB was drafted #7 overall; I'm sure I can suck it up and accept Geno Smith as a Raider.

    I want a franchise QB in the worst way. If Smith fits the bill, we'll all love the draft pick in 2-3 years.

    "Front office is ready for a new QB."

    As they should be. This RM/DA duo should someday find their guy at the QB position and who ever that is, whenever that is, they should get him.

    Now having said that, I would take other QBs before Smith in this draft.

    someone else said it would be stupid to draft a qb in round 1..sorry Firm...however...lets see..we trade palmer and our 3rd rd to jets for revis and their 2nd. Then we trade pryor, mcclain to eagles for their 3rd, and 4th.Then we draft a qb....we would then have a 1st, a 2nd, a 3rd, 2 4ths.

    If they feel someone is a franchise QB, they have to take him. They want their guy and it isn't like we are set for years at that position. We need an upgrade everywhere, so taking a franchise QB (if they feel that is what he is) with our 1st isn't as bad as people here are making it out to be. Every position is a need.

    I cant blame them for being so interested in him IF they are. Nobody knows if this is true. I like him a lot, but I don't think they should take him there because we need help in other spots and I like and want TP to get a chance. But if they take him I'll be shocked but not mad at it. I think he got a bad rap towards the end because they lost some games. But in my opinion, it was his team that let him down, not the other way around. He made a very average team look good for a couple weeks then they came back to earth. Guy is a beast though. Lots of upside. But once again, I think we should not take him. Give me Joeckel or Milliner


    My girl. Don't look at her.

    STRAIGHT CASH HOMIE!

    I highly doubt this was Reggie and the Raiders leaking this. I think it was either KC or Jax leaking it so a QB hungry team jumps the "interested" raiders.


    Yall let me slip?!?!

    Smokescreen. It's the oldest trick in the book; You, at #3, act like you're interested in a QB so that interested parties who like the same player trade up for the pick. Good job, McKenzie.

    "facts" aren't always true. How many times do you hear rock stars going into treatment for "exhaustion"? A pre-draft rumor holds about as much weight as the guy in the back of the elevator who said "It wasn't me".
