  1. The Times Are Changing

    Congrats. Well deserved!
  2. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    I’d posted a while ago asking how high people thought was too high for him. With the seeming flattering out of prospects from about 15/16 on - he sits in that 2nd tier with some of the WRs, DBs and LBs for me.
  3. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    Good post and counter to BPs excellent argument. I agree with BPs sentiment that we are in a weird position and we are probably just out of reach for the genuine difference makers. That said any of the top 3 WRs will make a big difference to us. They may never be elite and while I can envision some kind of dream draft which involves us trading down and having a number of picks from the late 1st to 3rd round and we double up on all our positions of need. But that would take some doing, not least as we might not be able to get good value on any trades. It could quite easily backfire and we end up with a load of average rookies. There is as much sense in simply getting the 12th and 19th best players and assuming they will be better than the 25th, 41st, 67th (or whatever traded picks we might get) players. Really good discussion. About time with all the passive aggressive **** swinging in here recently!
  4. FA 2020

    Lol! I tried making a comment a few days ago to get them to take their constant passive aggressive bickering somewhere else. As you can see, they didn’t follow my advice!
  5. Random Raider Stuff

    I like the Tuck comparison - or Brandon Graham or Charles Johnson. Someone who can be relied upon week in year out to produce at a consistent level and ultimately be a core leader within the organisation.

    This is why I’m still quite high on drafting either Murray or Queen at 19. They would play in our starting D in place of Lee and would be 3 down players if either Littleton or Kwit we’re out at all. The depth their is atrocious. It would then leave us the 3rd round to add depth/potential to our DB group where there happens to be a number of players to pick in that range rather than reach at 19 for fear of missing one of the late 1st/early 2nd guys. Could always combine 2 3rds to move up if a Johnson, Terrell, Gladney type is still there in the 2nd.

    BayRaider and jimkelly - can you please make your own thread or get a room - whatever you need to stop clogging every thread with your petty arguing. It’s getting really tired.
  8. Raiders Defense

    Agree about Heath, but you never know with Apple. Still want them to go after a CB in the draft, but I think he has a chance to be a starter. He had a decent season with the Saints. Still inconsistent and had some brainfarts, but had some good games too. He fits our scheme and has the physical traits we covet. I wouldn’t say I’m particularly confident, but I could see him build on last season and surprise us.
  9. HB Final Social Distance Mock Draft

    Excellent work. Really like the haul and the positions you’ve covered. Would be really happy if it played out like this.

    I too still think LB should be a consideration given the position we’ll likely be in. If there were other players who would present value in a position of need at 19, we may be able to afford to be more selective. Looking at how things are likely to fall it will potentially be a DB reach vs a LB who is the best player on your board. I understand that we may not have 3 LBs every snap - but if we had 3 quality LBs who can all cover, it may reduce the need to go into nickel as much. And my guess is that if we had Littleton, Kwit and Murray - they’d be moved round and would play a lot. And we should have an eye on the future as you say BP. If the FO like him enough - take him. I also really like Gladney. He’s just so sticky and he definitely qualifies as physical. Another of the ‘ideally after a trade back’ DBs.
  11. BayRaider 2020 Semi-Final Version Mock Draft

    I like that there is an oline pick in the 3rd - but an OT that early and right next to another pick on the oline is overkill. I could see OT depth being picked if we trade back for extra picks. I definitely can see and hope we use a 3rd on a guard though.
  12. What's your big board? 2020 edition!

    What are your thoughts on the safeties? Would expect 1, possibly both to be there at 19 and with a bit of a cluster of late 1st/2nd round CBs, it could be a pick that makes sense. Seems that the consensus is that Delpit is perhaps more a FS and one who would be more comfortable playing deep. I could see this as a good compliment to Abrams, although are we likely to play in this way. McKinney seems like a player MM would like, but is he too similar to Abrams. Would they be able to play together?
  13. Hoping he’d sign for longer. Really liked him coming out and what he should offer
  14. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    Agree with much of the sentiment here. With our moves in FA and the almost certainty of picking a WR at 12, that 19 pick becomes really curious. It seems most of us are unsure about all the DBs. Either that the ones projected to go around there have question marks and nobody really likes them or the ones we all like are projected to go later. I also think the same as Bay that Mayock will be happy to do as he did with Ferrell and take the guy he likes even if it is earlier than others would go. I have a suspicion it will be Terrell. In many ways it’s kinda liberating, like the value goes out of the window for players in positions of need. Just choose your poison. I like Johnson, Terrell and Gladney. They just seem like solid CBs that other teams pick a little early in the middle of rounds 1 and end up being really solid. Ideally you want to trade down, but if you like them enough, don’t overthink it. Fans are weird with perceived value.

    I do too. With Good as insurance, I think we may see Gabe traded or even cut at some point. I would be surprised if we didn’t add an olineman in the draft
