But given the fact that he had such an unusual and severe injury, he should have been treated like other such prospects and selected in the later rounds.

I say we put Hayden on PUP, and use the money we have in Cap room from savings on Burnett, to pick up another DB and a veteran WR. These two positions are our true weak spots, and without them being handled, we will not win 8 games.SO- WHO IS OR WILL BE AVAILABLE AT WR AND DB?? That is the real questions.

He played little last year and I can understand why fans are irritated that RM took him so high considering the type injury he had, but these injuries are unrelated so I just worry the foot injury heals fine. It will give some of the other guys a chance to get more reps.

He took a year off before starting junior college and was a fifth year senior which is why he is 25-years-old. His age and injury are part of the reason he was still on the board in the fourth round. There was also some off the field issues.
He missed the entire 2012 season with a medical redshirt rehabbing a serious shoulder injury. Then he was arrested for a DUI. He needed to step back and re-examine things. He had a one-year-old daughter as well.
"All that stuff was years ago, two years ago," said McGill. "I've been trying to stay clean and I've been trying to show everybody that that was the past and that's exactly what it was. Obviously that's going to come up because it's a concern for teams. But all the teams that passed on me they are going to realize it's a big mistake and the Oakland Raiders are going to realize that it's probably a rally good draft pick."
