  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Random Raider Stuff

    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/
  4. 2019 Free Agency V2

    A DE. Dion Jordan or Derrick Morgan. They need more competition in camp.
  5. 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.
  6. Random Raider Stuff

    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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Raiders Defense

    I'd give Mauro and Mayowa a better chance to start than Key at this point. Mauro in the base, Mayowa in the nickel.
  10. 2019 Raider Depth Chart Thread

    I doubt PG will start a rookie CB week 1. They didn't even force their 1st round CBs into early starting roles in Cincy, so a 2nd rounder will sit. Imo, the competition for the opening day #2 CB is between Worley and Lawson.
  11. Raider UDFA's

    Poor athleticism has to be one reason.
  12. Pick is in, #4 Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson

    Seems like Gruden would have traded up for Jacobs.
  13. 2019 Draft Recap

    No doubt but the LB class was weak. The 2 starting caliber off ball LBs went in the top 10 and there was nothing to get excited about after them.
  14. Pick is in, #4 Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson

    https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/04/29/nfl-draft-fmia-peter-king/?cid=fmiatw You're right, they were hoping to trade down and land Ferrell but, as stated later in the article, they didn't get any offer to trade down.
