Raiders' draft prospect: Tremaine Edmunds

First in a series of 10 profiles of players who could be a target of the Raiders with the No. 10 overall pick of the NFL draft on April 26. First up is Virginia Tech linebacker Tremaine Edmunds. College: Virginia Tech Position: Linebacker Ht/Wt: 6-foot-5, 254 pounds Why he fits the Raiders: Was Jon Gruden dropping a hint at the NFL owner's meetings when he said, “If there's a 19-year-old player in this draft that's a hell of a player, we're not going to discriminate against him because he's 19. If you're the best player and you fit what we're looking for, we'll take you.” Edmunds is 19, turning 20 on May 2. You've got to figure Gruden will always be on the lookout for the next Derrick Brooks.
