@Hansgrohe Since when is a 4th round pick supposed to fill a need? While i didnt necessarily agree with the pick, it shouldnt be too hard to understand. McGloin is in his final year, and backups command more more noney in free agency than the Raiders will be willing to spend. Instead, the Raiders will be paying Cook at a 4th round salary. He will have a year to develop before being asked to play the role of primary backup. His ceiling is high enough that if Carr goes down, the Raiders can still compete, and, he could serve as trade bait down the road as well. NOT a horrible pick.
2011 NFL Draft Stock Up: Senior Bowl Day 1 Practice
Vincent Brown, WR, San Diego
Vincent Brown showed off his great hands Monday, making several impressive catches. Brown averaged 19.6 yards per reception this year. He might draw some late Round 3 consideration.
Kendric Burney, CB, North Carolina
One of the more impressive cornerbacks on Monday was Kendric Burney, who was very sharp in one-on-one drills.
Quinton Carter, FS, Oklahoma
I really liked how Quinton Carter looked in coverage. Mike Mayock agreed, commenting on Carter's fluid hips. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Titus Young, WR, Boise State
Wow. I don't want to overreact to one day of practice, but it's going to be difficult not to. Titus Young was breath-taking on the practice field, blowing by defensive backs at will and breaking ankles with deadly jukes. He looks like a hybrid between DeSean Jackson and Mike Wallace.
2011 NFL Draft Stock Down: Senior Bowl Day 1 Practice
Jeremy Beal, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
Jeremy Beal had no answer for Gabe Carimi in their one-on-one matchup. Several scouts were down on Beal going into the Senior Bowl, and the Oklahoma pass-rusher is not off to a good start.
Mark Herzlich, OLB, Boston College
Mark Herzlich looked great at the weigh-in, but was very slow in coverage. I'm rooting for Herzlich, but he struggled Monday.
Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue
Ryan Kerrigan beat Nate Solder on an inside move in their one-on-one matchup. Kerrigan still has some growing to do (6-4, 255), but seems like a Jaguars-type player, so I doubt he makes it past No. 16.
Stephen Schilling, G, Michigan
Stephen Schilling drew a tough matchup against Cameron Jordan, but Jordan made the Michigan guard look like a helpless child in their one-on-one battle.
