2010 NFL Draft: Round 4
on April 24, 2010
Morning, early risers!
The action is well under way at Day 3 of the draft. Oakland has already drafted two newbies, Bruce Campbell (106th pick) and Jacoby Ford (108th pick).
Now that linebacker Rolando McClain, drafted in the first round, is in the picture, there’s no more need for veteran Kirk Morrison, who led the team in tackles last season. So the Raiders orchestrated a trade with Jacksonville, trading Morrison for a second fourth round pick, which they used to draft wide receiver Jacoby Ford out of Clemson.
Two picks earlier, Oakland finally obtained the coveted Bruce Campbell, offensive tackle and guard from the University of Maryland Terrapins. Campbell was sure he would be drafted in earlier rounds, as analysts had suggested as early as the first round that the Raiders were eyeing him. Campbell was one of fastest linemen at the NFL Scouting Combine, clocking a 4.79 in the 40-yard dash.
