Not sure about this one...Not really sure how much draft implication it really has. I think the Raiders will still draft a premier QB, if he's there when they pick

Raiders got their 3rd QB. Gonna be a battle between Walter and Brooks. I think Walter will be the starter next year. I'm hoping that since the Raiders picked up Brooks, they'll draft either Hawk, Mario, or Haloti at 7. Then go D and O-Line in the draft.

Brooks is a little bit better than Collins just because he can move. He better work on his decision making/play reading skills if he wants to help the Raiders. Hopefully a new setting and better WRs jumpstart this guy.

I doubt that Mario or Hawk will be there at 7. It is looking like both will be taken pretty early. I still don't see it as out of the question that they take either Cutler or Young if they're available, which they very well could be.

Nice job, Raiders. Just push out one piece of crap quarterback for another. ;-D

I'd take Brooks if he falls. He'll be a better fantasy QB than real life QB.
Costing your team the game with a terrible fumble or interception is only -2 points, throwing to Randy Moss in garbage time will more than make up for that. ;-D

As long as Moss stays healthy he should remain a top WR.

This ups Brooks' fantasy value for sure.
