Torn quad is tough to come back from but hopefully he can be an efficient pass rusher. He was having a great year before the injury. The Raiders need all the pass-rush help they can get because their CBs aren't good enough to hold up in coverage for very long.

I know Raiders fans don't think too highly of Barksdale but I wouldn't mind the Rams trying him out. Can't believe he's worse than Ojinnaka.

I don't think you can believe he is better either. Now he doesn't fit the zbs so there is a small chance he could work out in a power system. But IMO he is garbage. Good for him if he can get himself in better shape and learn how to play.

Screw you Raiders.

Is Barksdale even remotely servicable as an OG?

We desperately need an OG and as a relatively high draft pick, he should have some potential and someone will think they can get something out of him.

Don't know that either. Just more hoping than anything. We need someone to get Ojinnaka off the field.

Barksdale is honestly pretty bad. In preseason he got worked over frequently against backups and future insurance salesmen. He was the guy that 'stuck out' in preseason, which is exactly what you don't want an Olinemen to do.

Raiders tried him at G and T and wasted no time finding a better backup option during roster cuts.

He might have some upside, but what we've see is hot garbage.

Hope Carter works out for you guys. He's a great locker room guy and a pleasure to root for.

during preseason, yeah. During real games he was either playing ST's or he was unactivated
