I LMAO every time I think of a kicker going the first round too. I got to admit he was worth it though, he has been the best player at his position for that team since his arrival. IMO he's the best Kicker EVER. I know there have been a lot of great kickers, but Janikowski's range is unbelievable, and he's a legitimate tackler on kickoff returns. I live in California and have been to a few Raiders games with a few of my friends who are Raiders fans, during the warm ups Janikowski is usually dead money from 70 YARDS!

If Suisham plays like he did this year then we're set at kicker. I agree though, that list is not impressive. We're a better managed organization then any of the teams that drafted the players on that list though so hopefully we can get someone on defense that is the real deal, and not average like some of our recent defensive draft picks. If we can get DeCastro at #24 then we can find someone at #17.
