Let's pull a move a young Al Davis would love.

Draft Nassib and blackmail Buffalo for their 8th and another pick or two later.

They have a giant boner for this kid, rightfully so, and even if it "backfires" we still have potentially the best QB in the draft.

Stupid idea, none of the QB's in this class are worth the #3 pick.

Trade Down, if not then take BPA hold hostage. Then we wouldn't be screwed either way.

Well, put it out there that we're considering it to create trade bait buzz.

Buffalo wants him bad, all the reports are the coach wants to reunite with Nassib. Now they're trying to back peddle and say they like Barkley, too.

They want Nassib, period. And they'll probably get him at 8.

A little smokescreen never hurt.

If Buffalo took Nassib at 8, I would never stop laughing.

All reports are that if they are unable to trade down, they will.

Not so laughable, even our boy Gruden has him ranked as the #1 QB this draft.

I'm not buying that. I say they draft a guard at 8 and get Nassib in the 2nd.

Ever consider Buffalo wants everyone to think they are desperate enough to draft Nassib at #8 hoping someone does something dumb like draft him so that their real target gets pushed down?

These are all just reindeer games. The Raiders just need to handle their own business and let the draft come tot them.

Now just imagine if we drafted Nassib at 3. I'd have to fight someone.
