2010 NFL Mock Draft: Oakland Raiders Select Maryland OT Bruce Campbell

This is the HARDEST pick bar none. Bar none!

It is so hard because Al Davis is about as predictable as the lottery. You never know who he'll draft.

This is a guy who drafted a punter in the first round of the 1973 draft who had a broken foot! Thankfully for Al, it was Ray Guy, arguably the greatest punter of all time.

Throw in Darrius Heyward-Bey last year at wide receiver over Michael Crabtree just because Bey had the fastest forty time coming out of Maryland.

Well, after consulting with fellow colleague and Raider writer Jay Dee, I have come to a conclusion of who I think Al might draft if it was held right now.

In fact, it is DHB's former teammate Bruce Campbell.

He's 6'6, 314 pounds, 36 inch arms, and runs a freakish 4.85, that's the fastest among offensive linemen.

Al has always been amazed by physical specimens and this is a physical specimen without question.

Bruce Campbell was a top performer in five combine events including the 40 yard dash.

He has a 32 inch vertical jump with the highest recorded jump at the combine being 34.5 inches. He did the 20 yard shuttle in 4.69 seconds with the fastest being 4.51 seconds. He did the three-cone drill in 7.58 seconds with the fastest being 7.40 seconds.

And he did 34 bench reps with the highest being 45, but the second highest being 38, so this guy is among the best in nearly every drill.

When I look at the film of him, I sometimes wonder if I'm wrong by grading Okung over him.

However, he's from Maryland, the competition is not the same as it is in the Big 12 right now, and he's got a few troubles in football instincts during run-blocking and he's had issues with injuries.

He's had turf toe, which affects movement. He's had MCL trouble, he even had brain surgery to drain excess fluid. In three years, he's only started 17 games and played in 27...
