If the Raiders want a future QB from this draft, they could get away with taking Fitzgerald (future stud) with their first pick and Losman or something in the second round.

Sure, L Fitz probably won't stink it up like Key, but a WR at pick #2 is flat out foolish. Maybe they go with Big Ben, but I think they will pass on him. An O-Lineman 6'7"+ with some serious skills is a better pick IMO than a WR who may or may not be a NFL star.

This is exactly the logic used by the Packers when they choose an O-linemen for the future over a flash RB. That would be Tony Mandrich with the #2 pick instead of Barry Sanders. One of the few times I liked Cheesehead logic.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?
