  1. Random Raider Stuff

    Jordy Nelson didn't develop a drop issue with Carr throwing him the ball.
  2. Raiders Derek Carr - 3 Doug Martin - 2 Antonio Brown - 7 Richie Incognito - 4 Rodney Hudson - 2 Vontaze Burfict - 1
  3. Who will have the #1 pick?

    The Giants.
  4. Raiders sign OG Richie Incognito

    Bottom line, KO was just average the last 2 years. That's the reason he's not here anymore.

    Mauro will only play in the base D (the league average is under 25% of snaps in the base now) as a run defender. But I agree he needs some competition for that role.
  6. 2019 Free Agency V2

    Willson has started 45 games in his career. He's not a receiving threat like Cook but he's a decent blocker who can provide more as a receiver than Smith. Waller and Swoope will compete for the receiving TE role but with an improved WR group, they won't be getting the targets Cook got last season. Moreau will learn behind Willson. As far as receiving production , this isn't a group you'll get huge numbers from but that's not what this offense is about.

    It just shows there were very few elite/very good Cs in the league last season according to their grading system. It doesn't necessarily mean their system is flawed.
  8. Around The League V.2

    I think he can play the base strongside DE in Guenther's scheme (obvious upgrade from Mauro) and move inside in the nickel next to Hurst/Hall.
  9. Pick is in, #230 - DE, Quinton Bell

    Don't see why he wouldn't be able to contribute on ST at least. Big dude with WR speed can cover kicks. He can take Wilber's spot with the added upside to contribute on D down the road.

    Pretty sure the staff doesn't expect him to be anything more than a designated pass rusher this season. https://nflspinzone.com/2019/05/11/oakland-raiders-arden-key-role-2019-guenther/

    A DE. Dion Jordan or Derrick Morgan. They need more competition in camp.
  12. 2019 Draft Recap

    Reuter has to be a Rams fan 'cause there's no way Gaines and Long make the all-rookie team. Gaines won't make it over Q, Lawrence or Wilkins. Long will be the 4th CB at best on the Rams depth chart. Can't make the all-rookie team from the bench! Makes you wonder how he put that list together.

    That's his career so far. Great games here and there, average to non factor the rest of the time. I don't understand why some people say he was a different player in Dallas. Is it worth being paid 18M+? I'd say no.
  14. Raiders Offense Thread:

    Yes. Cook isn't good enough to alter the plan on offense. No TE on the current roster will come close to his 2018 production because that's not what the offense is about, it's about the WRs and RBs in the passing game. There's no reason to pay Cook when his role in this specific scheme isn't supposed to be big. He's probably worth his contract to the Saints but not to the Raiders.
  15. Raiders Offense Thread:

    Pretty sure Gruden's scheme has never been TE centered. Cook had the best season ever for a TE in a Gruden offense last season. The previous best was 39 catches for 555 yards by Rickey Dudley in 1999. In Gruden's scheme, the TEs are blockers first. Cook isn't exactly the prototypical Gruden TE, so it's not surprising they chose to pay WRs instead of a receiving TE.
