Mock Draft

The latest from About.com:

"The Raiders need offensive line help in the worst way and a franchise quarterback, but Johnson has the type of freakish physical ability Al Davis loves."
So, in other words, it doesn't make any sense to draft Calvin Johnson, but that's what the Raiders will do anyway. Could be. Who the heck knows? I wouldn't have minded this pick a month or so ago, and I still probably wouldn't mind it. But there are better choices out there. The kid is obviously gifted and good at what he does. But -- wide receiver with attitude? Ever heard of two of those? Or what about could develop as a lack of motivation? Or the fact that we don't need a wide receiver, at least not with the first pick? But that's their story and, until their next update, they're sticking with it.
