it seems pretty accurate, which is a surprise for Burger Bill

I would move Sanders down

he also completely left out Parrish Cox, Renaldo Hill, Darcel McBath, and David Bruton

there is no way the mid round guys the Raiders drafted are currently better than those 4 players

so taking all that into account I guess it isnt very accurate then

Cox should be on the list above a guy like Mitchell.

I don't really consider Nnamdi to be a Raider anymore.

Also, did Renaldo Hill die or something? I realize he's not a very flashy player and won't ever make the Pro Bowl, but to not even have him ranked on there is pretty silly. I realize the dude could get cut this year, but he's got four or five rookies on that list.

honestly McBath and Bruton shouldn't be ranked. neither of them regularly contributes on defense due to injury or other reasons.

I think Squid probably deserves some love after a pretty good year. Also, I think i put weddle up a spot or two.

I would do the same with Weddle and I'd move Jammer down a few spots. He's never lived up to his hype.

Sanders shouldn't make the list either. He can't string multiple games together because his body is soft.

Same with Bob Sanders and yes I realize Sanders has a rep as a good player...when he plays.

I would rank them over middle round rookies who havent taken a snap yet.

I doubt those players get much playing time on defense this year, and most likely will not be as good at specials teams as Bruton and McBath right off the bat either

Jammer is actually very underrated. Those who don't really pay much attention to him usually say these kinds of things. He's not a flashy player who makes highlight reel plays but he shuts down his side of the field pretty well and has become a very consistent player.

I actually think he should be ranked in the top two on this list. And like someone said earlier, Aso shouldn't be on this list. Weddle still has a chance to re-sign with SD.

I wouldnt necessarily say that, as mentioned above Jammer has been pretty good

hard to evaluate corners when the good ones dont get thrown at

Champ actually has a slightly better ratio than Nnamdi.

Champ is still number 1 in the league at the CB position and he can play the run. HOF
