Finally: Bruce Campbell Drafted in Fourth Round, Headed to Oakland

Look, he's patriotic! No character concerns here!

Oh, the irony. We (and several others) thought that Bruce Campbell had a shot to go #8 overall in the first round to Oakland. They passed on him, and he plummeted. Three rounds later, early in the fourth round, Campbell was drafted - and will be headed to Oakland anyway.

We've already talked about the shocking fall for the uber-athletic Campbell, so I'm not going to reiterate it. I will express my dismay about my Redskins passing on him despite still desperately needing offensive line help, but that's a talk for another day and another blog.

Meanwhile, the Bay Area is a veritable Terrapin haven, featuring Campbell, Darrius Heyward-Bey, and Vernon Davis. Man, Maryland needs to start recruiting the Oakland area hard.

Best of luck to Bruce in his NFL career. He has star potential.
