Oakland Raiders are using this NFL off-season to find a franchise quarterback and they are clearly desperate to find that one player that can take them forward.

The AFC West side have been waiting for a leader at the position for sometime. Problems with QB's stretches back along way for the Raiders, who haven't had a solid since Rich Gannon took them to the Super Bowl in 2002.

Since then they have gone through different QB's in search of his true replacement.

There was the days of Aaron Brooks, the failed number one overall pick of JaMarcus Russell and the mixed days of Carson Palmer.

Last season the Raiders had Terrelle Pryor and Matt McGloin fighting for the number one QB spot.

But it's understood neither of those players figure in the plans for the top spot this season.

Raiders General manager Reggie McKenzie said Wednesday he has a "really good idea" who will be the Raiders QB, with the player likely to have been targeted already.

"The bottom line still is the guy's got to come in and compete, show the team, his teammates, the staff, that he can do it," McKenzie explained in a wide-ranging interview with Jerry McDonald of Bay Area News Group.

"There's always going to be competition. I hope it's strong competition. But at the end of the day, I have a good idea."
