Chip Kelly gets "his" guy.

A theme the SB Nation NFL sites have been doing throughout this season is "Which [opposing team's] player would [your favorite team's] fans take?" With the Eagles set to take on the Raiders in Oakland this week, it's time to address the question. For reference, here's a link to the Raiders' entire roster.

The Raiders don't exactly have the most talented players in the world, but there are some intriguing options. More intriguing than anyone is quarterback Terrelle Pryor. Selected by the Raiders in the third round of the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft, Pryor hasn't had the chance to be the full time starter until this season. He isn't the most polished passer yet but there's no denying his talent and tools. The 24 year old stands tall at 6-4, 230 lbs and runs a 4.38 40 yard dash. The Eagles quarterback position is unsettled and I can't help but think Chip Kelly would love a guy who has the ability to do THIS. In fact, Kelly recruited him while at Oregon, but Pryor ended up at Ohio State instead.

D.J. Hayden would be a nice piece on defense. The Eagles could use an upgrade at CB, and Hayden is a young talent with potential. Oakland selected him with their first overall pick (12th overall) in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Sebastian Janikowski will be the pick for Alex Henery haters, if not just for his cool nickname "Seabass". Not to mention the 34 year old veteran's ability to drill kicks from deep.

My pick is Pryor. Which Raiders player would you take?
