Oakland will either draft Donald Penn's replacement at LT, draft a cornerback, or an inside linebacker with their first pick. Those three priorities are above drafting a running back considering Oakland already drafted a running back this year. And Latavius Murray is just fine
I think they could have drafted quite a bit better. Maybe looked @ Thompson from BSU at safety. I think anyone that passed on Booker missed a chance on a RB talent steal. Alexander was rated higher than drafted, but guard seems to have a low value on a lot of teams. Cook being drafted wasn`t a horrible pick in terms of the position & need. I just think they should have waited 1 year to grab a QB prospect. I hope Cook works out, but you could almost drop each player by one round for a better value. Joseph was going late 2nd round to many scouts. The way WAS drafted I don`t think they would have taken him @ pick 22.

Arkansas vs. Georgia
15 Ryan Mallett QB
45 D.J. Williams TE
65 Demarcus Love T
42 Justin Houston OLB
1st - 14:34 - Out of control ... has a narrow base and gets
forced off balance
1st - 14:11 - Poor footwork and crosses over feet ... no kick
1st - 12:36 - Bends at waist way too much
1st - 7:45 - Doesn't keep feet under body ... bends at waist
and gets off balance here when blocking 3-tech
1st - 7:12 - Raw footwork
1st - 5:50 - Takes a couple falst steps ... feet are very raw again ... doesn't
understand angle ... narrow base
1st - 5:17 - Tries to use all hands and size ... feet get out from underneath
him and gets off balance ... shows athleticism to readjust ...
1st - 4:33 - Bends at waist and beat to outside ... footwork is terrible ... very raw
Very raw still in 2nd qtr
2nd - 0:21 - Gets beat inside
3rd - 14:50 - Shows a lot of strength on hand slap ... uncomfortable in space ... lacks
balance ... not smooth ... bends at waist and falls on drive block in 2nd
3rd - 2:39 - Lacks quickness ... gets completely beat ... slow out of stance ... takes a
false step ... gets saved by RB blocking
Love is on the ground a lot ... really bad sign for an OL prospect
4th - 10:20 - Overanticipates and gets beat inside
1st - 14:11 - Gets a very nice jump on the football here ...
3rd - 2:39 - Elite first step ... very quick off the ball ... athletic
1st - 14:11 - Dangeous pass across body/across field over the middle
1st - 12:36 - Blown coverage by #31 for Georgia ... all 11 players in
box ... routine touchdown pass - too easy
1st - 7:11 - Reads blitz and checks down effectively
1st - 1:06 - Nice touch pass on go route ... reads 1v1 coverage with
size advantage ... Receiver makes a very nice catch. Intelligent throw with
good loft and good timing by Mallett
2nd - 15:00 - Poor job of selling PA toss ... wide open throw to TE
over middle with no pressure.
2nd - 0:46 - Clean pocket ... Ball is a little high but receiver
goes up and makes a nice play ... solid throw.
2nd - 0:38 - Ball is behind WR ... should have been a Pick-6 ... Mallett never
even read the free safety who had a break on the ball ... poor field
2nd - 0:26 0 Smart decision to kill ball on busted screen
2nd - 0:21 - Incomplete pass ... not even close
The vast majority of Mallett's completion are underneath drag routes with receivers
that are wide open on mismatches ... I'm just not impressed with the level
of difficulty in this offense at times.
3rd - 8:58 - Overthrew wide open WR that would have been for a big gain
3rd - 8:08 - Ball is too high, behind WR on quick out
3rd - 2:07 - Ball delivered too late ... LB jumps on it for pass breakup ... ball should have been out
before receiver broke on route
3rd - 0:17 - Touchdown pass to wide open receiver ... I'm not impressed with this pass. Great play call by Petrino
4th - 10:20 - (3rd and 3) Horrible pass on screen ... receiver was open with space and throws it at his feet
4th - 5:52 - Receiver goes up and makes a play for Mallett ... nice touch and timing again on go route to sideline, but Jake Locker doesn't
have a receiver that can go up and get the football like this.
4th - 5:45 - Ball comes out late ... too high ... receiver was wide open ... Mallett gets very anxious with pressure and usually has a clean
pocket to throw in
1st - 13:33 - Shows some physicality as an in-line blocker here, but small
and doesn't have much strength
1st - 7:07 - Good job hanging onto football after hit
