Oakland will either draft Donald Penn's replacement at LT, draft a cornerback, or an inside linebacker with their first pick. Those three priorities are above drafting a running back considering Oakland already drafted a running back this year. And Latavius Murray is just fine
I think they could have drafted quite a bit better. Maybe looked @ Thompson from BSU at safety. I think anyone that passed on Booker missed a chance on a RB talent steal. Alexander was rated higher than drafted, but guard seems to have a low value on a lot of teams. Cook being drafted wasn`t a horrible pick in terms of the position & need. I just think they should have waited 1 year to grab a QB prospect. I hope Cook works out, but you could almost drop each player by one round for a better value. Joseph was going late 2nd round to many scouts. The way WAS drafted I don`t think they would have taken him @ pick 22.

3/1/11: Phil Taylor continues to impress. He lost some more weight (334) and despite his massive frame, he ran a 5.18 at the Combine. Taylor has completely turned his life around, and he's definitely looking like a first-round pick.
1/30/11: Phil Taylor dominated the North team's supposed elite offensive line, beating double teams and wreaking havoc on the North's quarterbacks. The NFL Network guys remarked that 335-pound players aren't supposed to have Taylor's moves. Taylor could sneak into the bottom of the first round.
1/26/11: Phil Taylor is a monster and might be moving into late first-round consideration. He dominated every matchup in the one-on-one drills. It was amazing how easily he pushed around an overmatched Demarcus Love.
5/6/10: Like Terrence Cody, Phil Taylor's weight will need to be monitored. The prospect of adding a 355-pound nose tackle sounds nice until he shows up to training camp at 390.
Danny Watkins, G, Baylor
Height: 6-3. Weight: 310. Projected 40 Time: 5.13. Combine 40 Time: 5.28. Pro Day 40 Time: . Benchx225: 29. Arm: 34 1/4. Projected Round (2011): 2. 3/5/11: Like Phil Taylor, Danny Watkins had a great workout at Baylor's Pro Day. The 26-year-old guard will likely be drafted in Round 2.
1/27/11: Danny Watkins would be a high second-round pick if he weren't 27 years old. He looks great. A team ready to win now may take him in the third round.
1/26/11: Danny Watkins looks like he's ready to play right now. Then again, that better be the case because he's 27 years old. Watkins looked great Tuesday in the one-on-one matchups.
1/25/11: Danny Watkins would be much higher on this list if he weren't 27 years old. Was taken fourth overall in the 2010 CFL Draft.
