whats funny is everybody in the Raiders organization was telling Al Davis to take Calvin Johnson, and Davis wanted to but felt he absolutely had to get a QB. People just had Russell rated the highest (or he was just riding the momentum he got from showing off his arm against Notre Dame in a bowl game).

And as bad as Beck was/is, I don't fully get it. I wasn't in love with him, but the consensus was he should be a solid starter (then you had guys like Jaws comparing him to Drew Brees, and a couple of our own draft gurus loved the guy)
