  1. 2018 Draft Recap Thread

    As long as we don't follow the way they did things it should be completely different. Cable is not going to mold late round picks into good players, that's what they tried to do. Seattle was fine until they traded Unger and let Okung walk. If we get rid of KO and Hudson and plug in some 5th rounders, then I'll get concerned.

    The only argument I could have for this is, you're always drafting for need when you draft a punter.
  3. 2018 Depth Chart...How do you see it?

    Well, at least you guys are entertaining during this slow period

    Well I stand corrected

    I'm guessing bargaining chip against Bowman is the real reason for the visit. Bowman is 6 years younger
  6. Undrafted RFA signings

    Baugh is actually a really well rounded TE. However, I don't think he will ever be more than an above average player. He has the size and skill set to replace a player like Smith though. He may surprise a few people too, since OSU doesn't really use the TE position very much.

    Glad to see you step back from the ledge. Patience is a virtue. I know it's tough for us Raider fans.
  8. I guess the way I look at it is we only had 3 potential weak spots on offense RT, WR, and RB. 2 of 3 were addressed with our 1st round pick. Only time will tell if either player pans out. However, that is every single drafted player every year lol. There is no "safe" picks people. Remember Robert Gallery? How about Rolando McClain? I'm lukewarm on the pick and trade, but it has effectively set us up to draft defense the rest of the way. We can still grab a RB if the right one is available. We still have 11 picks left and I could see some picks being packaged together to move up if we are targeting specific players.

    Makes me believe that they will keep him around as depth at the very least.
  10. Jordy Nelson signed. Crabtree cut.

    "Nelson had 60 percent of his receiving yards and all of his touchdowns in six games before Rodgers was lost with a broken collarbone" This is what has me excited about the signing. http://www.nbcsports.com/bayarea/raiders/jon-gruden-pinpoints-several-spots-where-jordy-nelsons-it-factor-will-help-raiders

    I guess this argument will continue into the season. I really don't know what some of you expected. Everyone seems to completely ignore the fact that we had no cap room to play with and the little we did have was created by cutting a handful of guys that in turn created more holes. They have filled those holes as best as they could with scheme fits that we could afford. Plain and simple. Unfortunately we were in a position that we had to go quantity over quality because of this. I personally think everyone will be singing a different tune during the season about Nelson at the very least, but only time will tell. Now it's time to do some finishing touches. Possibly add another piece or two. Resign Bowman for instance or you know sign your best defender to a massive deal. Go into the draft with as little holes as possible. Get these guys into some OTA's and see what we actually have and then make any possible moves they can to help from then on. None of the signings they have made are long term and none of them tie our hands to anything going forward. Also, in case anyone missed it, we are in year 1 of a rebuild process. Stop looking at what we were 2 years ago and start focusing on what we will be in the coming years. Success or failure, we will be built into what Gruden and this new staff want us to be.
  12. 2018 Draft thread - PICK THE FASTEST GUY AVAILABLE

    http://www.nfl.com/draft/2018/profiles/p.j.-hall?id=2560080 Lots of doubles, triples, and chips. Looks like they almost exclusively ran away from him too.

    This. Who was out there that A. you wanted and B. we could afford? It's one thing to sit and say you want Suh or Trumaine Johnson, but it's another to actually have the capital to do that and have them want to play for us.

    I'm not sure where he is in his recovery. Have to remember that he had 3 surgeries last year.
  15. Raiders 2018 Free Agency Thread

    I guess I'll be the lone guy who is happy about getting Nelson and think he will be a steal for us, but only time will tell. I think he will be perfect for Gruden's style of offense and exactly what Carr and Coop need moving forward. I mean the guy basically put up the same numbers as Crabs did last year and I'm pretty sure he only played maybe 6 of his 15 games with Rodgers? Then if you look at previous years, well there's just no comparison between the two guys.
