When the Oakland Raiders took JaMarcus Russell first overall in 2007, Lane Kiffin was the head coach and pushed for the team to draft Calvin Johnson instead.
Late owner Al Davis insisted on drafting Russell.
Kiffin wanted to sign Jeff Garcia in free agency and then take Johnson, who the Detroit Lions drafted at the No. 2 spot.
The Raiders went 4-12 in 2007 and fired Kiffin after a 1-3 start in 2008.
