An NFL source tells Raiders beat writer Jerry McNamara that coach Lane Kiffin is in favor of drafting Notre Dame QB Brady Quinn with the No. 1 pick.

The consensus top prospect in the draft before being outplayed by JaMarcus Russell in the Sugar Bowl and Calvin Johnson's decision to leave school early, Quinn visited with the Raiders on Tuesday. Quinn would seem a better fit for coordinator Greg Knapp's West Coast offense than Russell.

Doubt it happens but Quinn ending up in Miami isn't sounding very likely.

I hate to say this, but we will not get Quinn. He will be gone too soon and the front office has proven to be patient. We will also not have Trent Green to the new high demands.

I have said all along that Quinn's success in the NFL depends on the system he is in.... the hybrid Trojan/WC/Vertical passing gamethat Crazy Al would prefer is ideal IMO.

I guarantee you Davis would reunite Culpepper and Moss before he would draft Quinn.

Unless TB trades up Oakland will draft Johnson and then go for Edwards or another QB in the 2nd.

Does Al Davis favor a offense that the Patriots used? I didn't think so.

Russel would favor Davis's ideal more then Quinn

We need to build from the ground up starting with the O-line. Anybody notice the new guard and center for the Jets? Mangini knows what's up. QB is useless without a line. Best to spend the $$$ on Green, hopefully short term, so he can help Cam install the offense and teach a young Passer the "thinking man's game."

If they do not pick Russell, it will be JOHNSON. Beside that, Quinn will be gone early.

How do they 2 relate/compare? Further, no need to get upset @ my theory.

no offense my man but your not exactly a great judge of talent... your worshiping Travis Daniels of all players(he isnt exactly someone who I'd spend my jersey money on)and saying you hope Miami doesnt draft Quinn? I am not a big fan of the guy but judging from our current QB situation Ive changed my tune and am all for him to be honest.

I think the point he was making is that Al Davis is known to be partial to a Big Gun QB utilized in a more vertical offense, which is not the type of system that Weis brought from the Patriots to Notre Dame.

Couple this with the fact that Russel is said to have the best arm many scouts have seen in years if not ever and it would seem that Al Davis would favor Russel over Quinn if he was going take a QB that high in the draft.

I didn't get upset with your theory. I asked a question that relates to Quinn. Davis's system he prefers is different than that in NE that Weiss used in college with Quinn to my knowledge.

I then made a statement that I didn't think Davis prefers a NE style offense, which Quinn ran with Weiss in ND.

I then went on to say that Russel fits better into a Davis like system.

Exactly, Davis prefers big gun guys

I think he took it the wrong way because I said "I didn't think so" I think he took that as me being rude. But it was me just making a statement that I didn't think Davis preferred it.

I think the poster just misunderstood my intent on the post.
