On Sunday, Florio said that Idaho guard Mike Iupati could crash the elite tackle party at the top of the draft, and possibly get selected in the top ten.

ESPN's Michael Smith, writing on Twitter late Tuesday night, says one team is especially fond of him.

"The Mike Iupati to Oakland @ #8 talk is picking up steam," Smith wrote. "Two league sources who know the Raiders well tell me that's who they're targeting."

It's always difficult to gauge what Al Davis will do, but this sounds just crazy enough to happen. Someone with this great a Mel Kiper impression couldn't be wrong.

I've heard Kyle Wilson going to the Raiders as well.

Personally, I believe that the Raiders are going to take the best taclke available NOT named Bulaga.

Good that means either Balaga or Davis falls to us.

Yes -- and he's not a physical specimen like the others.

Bulaga is the perfect RT for us, I just think KC gobbles him up at 5.

Yeah, I saw it. But, Pioli is really supposed like Bulaga and I think they also have a coach who was a Frentz fan so Bulaga looks like the pick for them at 5, IMO.
LOL, da raiders..........drafting a OG at #8. If they want him that bad they should be creative and trade down. What a bunch of tools over there. But.....its all smoke screens though.
