04:53 PM ET 04.21 | It appears as if the Oakland Raiders have found their man for the No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft in Sharrif Floyd. The defensive tackle from Florida has been a popular pick to the Raiders in mock drafts and it makes sense considering the dearth of options the team has at the position after a slew of defensive linemen left this offseason. Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie was on hand at Floyd's pro day and the defensive tackle appears to fit everything Oakland is looking for, from talent and production to character.

I'm sure everyone knows it, but you don't 'hone' in on anyone...'homing' in is what the Raiders may be doing.

Floyd is mostly all hype. Oakland would be best served staying away. Let the Jags or Browns waste a pick on this guy; Oakland cant afford any more wasted picks right now.

Actually... no.

"Honing in" is a perfectly acceptable phrase which can more or less be used interchangeably with "homing in".

Sort of like how "expound" and "expand" are used interchangeably.

.....Raiders have a way of losing and abusing draft choices.....now that "tales from the crypt" are over.....it's time to start anew.

So does that mean there's going to be a new Sharrif in town?

It's not proper and almost definitely came from a misspelling or incorrect pronunciation of 'homing in'... accepted does not always equal 'acceptable'. ;-)
