Oakland Raiders 2008 NFL Draft Grade
Darren McFadden doesn't win you draft grades. The Oakland Raiders are a really bad team that needed to add more pieces. I really like McFadden and think he is worth the fourth pick. However if you are Oakland you needed to trade back and get a few more pieces. Back to positives…McFadden is a homerun threat and a big playmaker for Jamarcus Russell. Tyvon Branch is a nice player who adds experience to the secondary. He played and started for four seasons at Connecticut and was a big cog in turning that program around.
