Arrowhead Pride Community Mock Draft -- Pick #4 by the Oakland Raiders

And with the #4 overall pick in the 2008 Arrowhead Pride Community Mock Draft, the Oakland Raiders select:

Virginia DE Chris Long


DJ with the pick.

There is no way Al Davis could pass on bringing in a second generation Raider to remind the fans of the glory years. Howie Longs son shares many of the characteristics of his father and is the best DE prospect in the draft. He will line up opposite of 2 time pro bowler Derrick Burgess who registered 8 sacks last year and provide a fearsome pass rushing duo to further strengthen Oaklands ascending defense. A good pass rush in combination with DeAngelo Hall and Nnamdi Asomugha at the CB positions will make passing against the Raiders a dangerous proposition.

1. Miami Dolphins - QB Matt Ryan
2. St. Louis Rams - OT Jake Long
3. Atlanta Falcons - DT Glenn Dorsey
4. Oakland Raiders - DE Chris Long

On the clock: Kansas City Chiefs (Tom Bahali)
