Oakland Raiders 2012 Draft Overview

With some of the choices they did not make, it can also be inferred that perhaps players with questionable character and/or work ethic will no longer be as readily welcomed in the facilities in Alameda.

All of the players selected appear to be self-starters, players who might not have all the physical attributes but have intangibles that cannot be accounted for with a stop watch or by a physical trainer.
