Raiders Still Not Tipping Hand
It's less than 24 hours until the NFL draft, and the Oakland Raiders continue to keep everyone guessing about what they're going to do with the top overall selection.
Most people around the league have been guessing that the Raiders will use the choice on LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell. But sources familiar with the deliberations said the Raiders had not been in contact today with Russell's representatives, at least as of this afternoon. Meanwhile, there apparently were ongoing talks between the Raiders and the representatives of Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn.
The Raiders negotiated earlier this week with Russell, Quinn and Georgia Tech wide receiver Calvin Johnson. It's not clear if they'll sign any of the players to a contract tonight, as NFL rules permit the team with the top choice to do in advance of the draft.
