Looks like the Oakland Raiders, who are particularly thin at quarterback, may be among the most interested in former Downington East star Pat Devlin.

Devlin, who led Delaware to the FCS national championship game last year, is an undrafted free agent who will be part of the free agency frenzy that begins a few days after the NFL settles its labor dispute.

Once considered a mid-round draft pick, Devlin’s stock fell after the NFL combine in Indianapolis. But with so many teams in need of depth at quarterback, he may get a shot at making and NFL roster.
