6:22 pm
>> reporter: frank, obviously a lot of anticipation for fans of a team that, let's be honest, rebuilding. they've got a lot of needs on both sides of the ball. there was a lot of talent on that draft board. about 15 minutes ago the commissioner made the announcement. >> the san francisco 49ers select deforest buckner. >> reporter: what was the reaction? you could pretty much see for yourself, the fans going crazy. most of them expected that buckner might be the guy. after all, he made sense on several levels, not the least of which, as frank mentioned, chip kelly, the 49ers coach, was the university of oregon coach in 2012 when deforest buckner was a freshman. he is a big-time pass rusher. 10 and a half sacks last year. unlike eric armstead who was the first-round pick a year ago this guy is nfl ready.
6:23 pm

6:24 pm
about -- bandied about for years now. at the very least i think we now need to start paying attention to the very real possibility they will wind up there. a lot has to happen between now and then, i still, frank, to answer your question, have a lot of faith in the city of oakland and the fans joke land to do whatever it takes to keep this team here. i do believe this is where the raiders belong. >> i think they belong here, too, but scott, do you think this could be a bargaining chip? the nfl has always said no team is going to play in las vegas because of obviously the gambling. do you see the owners finally allowing a team to go there? >> reporter: well, ultimately the almighty dollar is a pretty big daily, or so i'm told. there's a lot of money to be made with a franchise in southern nevada. will the owners allow it? i don't know. i think it's too early to say. obviously this thing has some legs because we keep getting deeper into the process, and
6:25 pm
las vegas has been the one constant in terms of possible landing spots. again, a long way to go but what i figured a year ago was probably not a real possibility now looks like could happen. that scott, thanks very much. and stay with ktvu for continuing coverage on the nfl draft. sports director mark ibanez will bring us the latest in sports. we're also posting updates on facebook, twitter, and on our ktvu mobile app. california's high-speed rail board met to discuss another revision to the first section of the planned route between sap jose and the central valley. the board is expected to approve this revision. it calls for a $64 billion approach that sends the train from the central valley to the san jose area before it heads to southern california. the first section of track is scheduled to be finished by 2025. the original idea was to have the train run between the central valley and southern california. but the board said the san jose stop could ensure that at least part of the track will be done with the money available.
