If I was the Raiders I would trade places with Tampa (who would pick Calvin Johnson) - then with the 4th pick in the draft I would select whoever was remaining out of JaMarcus Russell or Brady Quinn - ideally it would be Brady Quinn.
With the trade would come Tampa's early 2nd rounder and their 2008 1st rounder.
With the extra 2nd rounder you take the best offensive lineman available.
I think a guy like Russell needs a better offensive line (he sounds like a black Drew Bledsoe with extra mobility) - a quicker release guy like Quinn would work better.
I would agree..trade down...get your QB..or if both Quinn & Russell are gone..grab OT Thomas in the first and wait until the second round to grab Drew Stanton and the best Guard left on the board
