Flash Analysis

While the Oakland Raiders were looking to get better play from their linebackers, it's hard to believe they were going to select a linebacker this high in the draft.

However, University of Alabama LB Rolando McClain is far and above as the top player available at his position for the 2010 NFL Draft.

McClain will immediately push MLB Kirk Morrison for playing time this season.
