Raiders | Cable defends draft strategy

Justin Hathaway, of, reports Oakland Raiders head coach Tom Cable said the franchise's draft philosophy is not to select the fastest, strongest and biggest players available, regardless of their college production, which has been their reputation. "How about the best player? Let's talk that way," Cable said. "We need to get better in some areas, and so at this thing (NFL Scouting Combine), find who you think the best players are, whether they jump the highest or run the fastest. That shouldn't make a damn difference. He has to be able to play football good enough for us to become a championship team."
