With pick No. 48 pick in the 2011 Cincy Jungle Mock Draft, the Oakland Raiders select...

Brandon Harris, CB, Miami

So, in order to immerse myself in all things Silver and Black; I made a trip to Oakland to see if I could pick the brain of Raiders owner Al Davis. I told him who I was and why I was there. He asked if I would dance while he threw nickels at me which I agreed to do. After I collected $2.65 I was offered a job (in title only) as part of the draft team. Here’s how it went down:

I was told by Mr. Davis that we would select Usain Bolt with our first-round pick. I explained to him that our first pick was traded away to the Patriots for Richard Seymor. He said: "huh, well then who has the fastest 40 time in combine history?" I told him I thought it was Chris Johnson. He said: "good – we’ll draft him." I said: "Sir, he was already drafted… in 2008." He said: "Well then that bolt guy, is he still there?" I said yes, but he doesn’t play football. To which he replied "Yeah, but he’s fast though, right?" I said yes he was fast. I then asked if he thought we should address the trouble on the offensive line, or the departure of the shut down corner back Nnamdi Asomugha, or the uncertainty surrounding the tight end position, or even quarterback for that matter. He said: "No Bolt is fast – he even sounds fast, we’ll draft him.

Obviously I couldn’t let the Raiders select Usain Bolt, no matter how fast he is. So I erased the name on the card that I was given to hand over to the announcer and wrote in: Brandon Harris / CB / Miami. Not only does Harris fill a position of need for the Raiders he also has a Raiders swagger. Harris broke up 15 passes last year and had 6 tackles for loss. In coverage, receivers struggle to get separation, and he does well to shed blocks in run support. During position drills at the Combine Deion Sanders said Harris was the best corner he saw on the field. The U has consistently produced a number of good defensive backs, Duane Starks, Phillip Buchanon, Antrel Rolle, and Kelly Jennings to name a few. I would expect Harris to follow in the footsteps of these predecessors.

Once Al Davis finds out we didn't draft Bolt I'll probably be fired, but I felt Harris is first-round talent and a great value in the second round. Hopefully he doesn't find out till I make the next pick in the third.
