Senior Bowl: Raiders scout prospect

The Oakland Raiders covert operations at the Senior Bowl have finally been exposed. After not seeing a single scout over the first day or two, they were out on Wednesday and had a player in particular that piqued their interest.

Two Oakland scouts spent thirty minutes critiquing the game of Babatunde Oshinowo, a nose tackle out of Stanford.

The North Squad defender weighed in at 302 pounds after the measuring stick tabbed him at 6-foot-1.

Growing up as a Dallas Cowboys fan, Oshinowo would fit into the defensive line rotation in Oakland.

He has a solid week in Mobile and on Wednesday was disruptive at times with push up the pocket – a rarity for a nose tackle. He will get overaggressive at times but has upped his standing in NFL circles.

"I believe he is getting bad coaching down here," one Oakland scout said of his time in Mobile under the tutelage of the Tennessee Titans staff.

The Raiders are specifically looking at the nose tackle position with Ted Washington and Warren Sapp aging fast, adding depth and preparing for another busy off-season that could see more changes along the defensive line.

Other news in Mobile points to the Raiders interest in Ken Wisenhunt. He appears to be the favorite to land the only true vacant head coaching position in the league.

The organization among the scouting department, and their often vacant stance at the Senior Bowl, points to a need for someone to head up the department and restore order.
