1. Raiders - JaMarcus Russell
In a totally unsurprising move, the Raiders went with JaMarcus Russell with the top selection, turning down late overtures from the Cleveland Browns and other teams to move up to that slot. Russell has a ridiculous arm and phenomenal size. Hopefully for the Raiders he can progress rapidly mentally both in learning the offense and being a team leader (not a team distraction/joke like one Mike Vick and his weekly dalliances with the law).
