Word I have heard is that Al is a little hesitant, at least in the recent years don't know about now, to take a QB in the first round. I guess he has been less than lucky in that area. There must be some truth to the rumor as The last QB they took in the First round was Marc Wilson out of BYU in 1980. After that you have to all the way back to 1968 before they took another 1st round QB...funny thing is they took stabler in the second round of that same draft.
1 Eldridge Dickey, QB, Tennessee St.
2 Ken Stabler, QB, Alabama
So from 1968 to the present they have only took 2 QBs in the first year...that is amazing.
However if there is a QB in the last few years that seems to scream AL Davis it would be JR IMO.
