As [former?, current?] NFL quarterback JaMarcus Russell continues his comeback attempt, Bleacher Report continues to chronicle his progress in a series of video posts. In their latest video post, Russell looks far better, physically, than he did at the outset of his comeback effort. There also seems to be a will to succeed in Russell that was lacking in his time with the Oakland Raiders. Regardless of his physical improvement, there's still little evidence that shows that Russell can transfer his smaller size (still over 275 lbs.) onto the playing field. Russell has more to prove than simply the ability to get into semi-football shape. He has to get into shape, stay in shape, and show that he can make appropriate calls on the football field. Considering the weak quarterback market that this season brings, it seems likely that Russell will be able to make it into someone's camp.

NFL Draft Team Needs: Oakland Raiders

1. Defensive Tackle: Both of last years' starters are now gone, so at least one DT should be brought in via the draft. It looks like Oakland will use the third overall selection on Lotulelei or Floyd at the moment. 2.
