PFT: Quinn close to deal with Raiders

RUMORS FLY OF QUINN TO RAIDERS
There are rumors right now in media circles that the Raiders are closing in on a deal with (drum roll, please) Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn, who would then be named the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.
Adam Schefter of NFL Network tipped us off to the rumor. Mark Maske of the Washington Post acknowledges the rumor in a Friday afternoon chat, but he says he's not reporting that the deal is done.
We heard earlier in the week that the Raiders had made an initial offer to Quinn. We have since heard that, while hard numbers were not presented to Quinn's agent, Tom Condon, there was enough discussion about parameters and terms to give him a sufficient idea as to the ballpark amount of the deal.

--------------------

if this is true, i believe it's because Quinn desperately wanted to be picked #1 and took a big discount that Russell and Johnson wouldn't agree to.

Houston and Denver swap picks

Broncos | Team to trade up in draft
Fri, 27 Apr 2007 10:30:36 -0700
Neil Stratton, of Inside the League, has learned that the Houston Texans, as previously rumored, will swap first-round draft picks in this year's NFL Draft with the Denver Broncos Friday, April 27, in exchange for the Broncos' second-round pick, No. 56 overall. The Broncos would select Mississippi LB Patrick Willis.

just a few long hours from the draft...

the more i think about it, the more i think the raiders should take calvin johnson.
i've never really been a "take the best player available" kind of guy, but it makes sense here.
plus i think good ol' al davis might take the "screw you" approach to every other team that sees johnson as the missing piece (atlanta and tampa bay) by just drafting the WR, and shutting down the numerous deals that might take place concerning detroit and the no. 2 pick.

i'm not sold on jamarcus, but for that matter, im not sold on how the raiders would use johnson if they did draft him, but i think it might work out in the end if the raiders go with a solid QB in the second round.
people expect trent edwards to be available, drew stanton, kevin kolb too. draft experts are gushing over edwards, but as a USC fan and a pac-10 fan, i've seen him play while he was at stanford. he did decently considering the lack of talent around him, and he was the play-maker on the team, but i've seen him get injured. i've seen the interceptions.
drew stanton is way too injury prone. i like michigan state, especially around the times of the michigan and notre dame games, and he carried msu on his back, but he just kept getting injured. years back i was excited about him as a potential raider QB, and he could be good if he stays in the game, but the raider OL needs to get better if we expect to keep him off the IR list.
kevin kolb has great statistics, great physical makeup, but played at houston. not really tested in his career at houston. but he can throw on the move, which is almost a necessity when coming to the raiders.
and now john beck is moving up some draft boards from what i hear, but the raiders would not draft him because of his mormon mission

so if the raiders do skip on jamarcus in round one, they would have one of these QBs to choose from (unless a ridiculously good O-Lineman falls to the second round). i would take stanton or kolb, and take my chances on the offensive-minded kiffen and the new regime coaching them.

raiders needs:
OL, OL, OL, OL, QB, OL, TE, DE, DT, OLB

Mock Draft

Does anyone know a link to any sites for a mock draft of every round for this year? I have been trying to find one but the only one I found is one you have to be a paid member for.

Broncos want Calvin Johnson

Too bad...per PFT.

BRONCOS WANT JOHNSON
A reader tells us that there's a rumor being reported on 950 AM in Denver that the Broncos are trying to make a play for the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, in an effort to land receiver Calvin Johnson.

A source with knowledge of the discussions tells us that the rumor is dead-on accurate, and that an offer has been made by the Broncos to the Lions.
Per the rumor and based on what we've heard, the Broncos have offered their first-round, second-round, and third-round pick in the 2007 draft and their first-rounder in 2008 for the No. 2 spot.

The Lions, we're told, are concerned that the No. 21 overall spot would put them too low to land one of the players whom they covet. The Lions' goal in trading down is/has been to get more picks, and to still get one of the players they want, but at a lower salary slot.
So the deal might hinge on the ability of the Lions to line up another deal that would allow them to move back up a bit.

The Broncos hold the No. 21 overall pick in round one, the No. 56 overall pick (No. 24 in round two), and the No. 70 and No. 86 overall picks (No. 6 and No. 23, respectively, in round three). We don't know which of the third-rounders has been offered.

Under the trade chart, the deal might favor the Lions. But different teams value picks from the next year's draft differently; some teams downgrade the points by a full round, making a 2008 first-rounder the equivalent of a 2007 second-rounder. The other problem here is that no one will know where the Broncos will draft in round one until the 2007 season ends.

The entire deal would be contingent on the Raiders not drafting Calvin Johnson with the No. 1 overall pick. We're currently told that the Raiders are expected to strike a deal on a contract with quarterback JaMarcus Russell before Saturday.

However, the fact that former Raiders coach/current Broncos coach Mike Shanahan apparently has a bee in his butt for Johnson could cause Raiders owner Al Davis to think twice about whether he would prefer to have Johnson on his team -- or to have to face him twice per year.

----------------

It's no secret that the Lions want to trade out of the #2 spot. However they want to stay in the top 10. Understandable. While the Broncos can offer them a ton of picks, that's a lot to ask of the Lions to move from #2 all the way to #20. Plus, does Millen really need more picks to screw up? ;)

Report: Raiders want to draft Cal Johnson

"ESPN's John Clayton reports the Raiders intend to draft Calvin Johnson with the No. 1 pick if the Dolphins acquire Trent Green from Kansas City.

Clayton's theory is that the whole top part of the draft depends on the future of Trent Green. If Green goes to Miami, Daunte Culpepper will be cut and Oakland would then sign him. Clayton says if a Green trade can't be worked out, the Raiders will be forced to draft JaMarcus Russell. Apr. 23 - 11:22 pm et"


hmmm..... let's see how this plays out.
