Why is oakland taking Russell with there first pick, why not Joe Thomas. With out a good offensive line your QB is pretty much screwed. Look at the way the Pats are set up- they have a good OL that give there QB plenty of time and the QB rarely makes mistakes. I don't care how good a QB is, if his OL is bad, then he will be bad. If I had the first pick and was trying to rebuild the franchise I would take trade down take thomas, and pick drew stanton in the 2nd round.
