DE Ben Gardner Visits Oakland

Stanford stand out, and recently injured (torn pectoral) Defensive End Ben Gardner, paid a visit to the Raiders this weekend.  He also spent time with the Chargers and 49ers.

Gardner is a talented player, and yet, he could be viewed as another product of the Stanford defensive system which produced huge numbers for the likes of Chase Thomas and Trent Murphy, a prospect who's slipping to the 2nd/3rd Round after early talks of a 1st Round slate.  Thomas went undrafted altogether and has barely played in the NFL despite HUGE defensive numbers while playing in Palo Alto.

  1. i really like Gardner. he has that nasty edge and IMO is a much better athlete than even the two guys mentioned before.
