Raiders take another combine star
By Bill Williamson
It just makes sense.
After Oakland took offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski in the second round, the Raiders came back at No. 81 and took Miami cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke.
A classic Oakland pick.
He was one of the fastest players at the combine, keeping up with a Raider tradition. Last year, Oakland took receiver Jacoby Ford, who was the fastest player at the combine and it recently took combine star cornerback Fabian Washington and Stanford Routt.
Van Dyke is not polished, but he has raw ability. He may have to play right away if star Nnamdi Asomugha leaves through free agency.
