The Oakland Raiders are in need of a quarterback still, but they are only interested in one of the quarterbacks that are projected to be drafted in the first round. The Raiders sit with the 5th pick in the draft and would need for their quarterback to fall to them in that spot.

The quarterback that they have their eyes on is Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater (Vic Tafur). Bridgewater has been projected as the first overall pick many times and seems to be the most ready to join the league. The Houston Texans hold the first pick in the draft and are in need of a quarterback as well. The latest rumors for the Texans have them liking Blake Bortles or Johnny Manziel. Bridgewater might be making a little bit of a slide and that could help out the Raiders.

The Raiders have a long wait till the 5th spot though and have other needs around the roster. If the Raiders decide to pass on the other quarterbacks in the draft, then they will be looking for any other talent to add onto the roster. They are in need of a lot of pieces to make this thing move.

    Teddy Bridgewater should be the ONLY acception for the Raiders taking a QB in the first round. Otherwise take defensive beast Khalil Mack. Its time to get our respect back. No better way to do that then by crackin QBs and makin plays behind the line of scrimmage. Mack might be the best player in this draft

    Ok this is mind boggling to me. We are going to draft another Qb. Now when Payton Manning had a bad SB. It was that the front line was beaten. But we had two rookie Qb’s behind a weak O-line and we say they have potential and neither one of them was in the plans to be the starter. So the play book was not to their strength. So if you want this team to be a force. Keep the 2 QB’s and either go with V. Young or M. Vick. Build up the front line and we have a power running game with Reece, Olawalse, L. Murray, Jennings, and J. Stewart. So the best was to groom a talented QB is give him a strong front line and a bower running game. Look at the teams 49′ers, Redskins, Steelers when Ben first came in. Even Brady when he first started. Cam Newton. I say do not throw Terelle or Matt away. Have plays set for both their styles and whoever win out the starting position work it. Draft/free agency both lines and CB’s. But everybody saying the QB is our problem. This is why when Pryor was starting we have a lead, then 2nd half the staff have no more plays. Be true. I wish I could challenge Allen in the coaching I would do it just for $100,000.00
