MHR Community Mock Draft Pick #40

New, comments

With the #40 pick in the 2009 MHR Community Mock Draft, the Oakland Raiders select....

DE, ROBERT AYERS, TENNESSEE

Oakland Raiders

Round 2, Pick #40 overall

GM V. Money

Details of the pick after the jump...

Always doing things the hard way...

From GM V.Money: On paper, Eben Britton is the safe choice here. He provides the Raiders with a left tackle who has first-round talent, gives Jamarc...Jeff Garc...the Raiders' starting quarterback with time to throw, opens up holes for Darren McFadden, and provides all-around health insurance for Russell and McFadden, fat contracts and all. But his arm length is a sign of concern. Even though he is 6'6", 32 1/2' guns tell me that he won't quite be able to play like someone 6'6".

Offensive line can wait until later. Until then, Oakland continues to address its run defense with an every-down end who, with first-round talent, is not as much of a steal as Jackson, but is still a value nevertheless. He is an ideal complement to first-round pick Busari Raji Jr. if he can be a consistent contributor at defensive end. And even if that doesn't pan out, he could still end up at outside linebacker. After all, the linebackers on the roster aren't cutting it either.

The only thing that could possibly make this trade bad is if management had a bone to pick with La...Lan...Monty Kiffin's less talented son, who, after so much time in California, is acting more like a Hollywood diva than the Vols head coach.

Commish's Thoughts: Ayers could be a major steal in this draft, even dropping to the raiders at #40. He is one of the top technicians in the draft, and every indication is that his smarts and leverage will translate to the pros with a little polish. They say it takes 3 years for a Dlineman to mature in the NFL, but Ayers is a prospect who might be able to contribute positively immediately.
