Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Raiders' picks: Round 3/71 - Matt Shaughnessy, DE, Wisconsin, 6-5, 270...A base end who can play either side and can hopefully upgrade a porous rush defense, Shaughnessy will push two-year end Jay Richardson if he holds up physically. Overcame a broken leg in spring practices in 2008 to go on to earn All-Big Ten honorable mention honors. - by The Sports Xchange
