  1. Raiders sign LT/RT Trent Brown (4 years, $66 M)

    Here's the full breakdown: https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/oakland-raiders/trenton-brown-16970/
  2. Trent Brown signing with Raiders 4 years 66 million 36 grt

    It's essentially a 2 year deal with 2 one year options thereafter. Makes me feel a lot better about it. Also, while this certainly is an indictment on Kolton Miller and Brandon Parker, I'd rather we admit those mistakes early than be stubborn and have Carr get crushed again.

    Makes me feel MUCH better - essentially a 2 year deal with 2 one year options thereafter

    I mean that doesnt seem like a good idea when Cable is implementing our blocking schemes.

    Very nervous about signing a OL from New England but he was solid in SF and is one of the few young FAs on the market. Plus I'm happy we're admitting that we screwed up with Kolton and Parker last year and needed to make a change for Carr to have success. I still REALLY dont get how Brown fits into Cable's scheme. The entire reason SF traded him was because he didnt fit into Shanahan's zone scheme and we run a similar blocking scheme to SF.
  6. Everything trades (Rumors and possibilities).

    I'm totally fine with AB for #35 and wouldn't be that upset with #27, provided that we feel comfortable with him personality-wise. He's the best WR in the NFL right now and with his work ethic and style of play I think he could have a Larry Fitz/Jerry Rice level of longetivity.

    he doesnt really use those physical gifts on film - watch him vs Joejuan Williams (4.64 speed) and Joejuan somehow stays with him stride for stride the entire time, even when Boykin is untouched running a streak. He's way too raw for me to take on Day 2 or even early round 4

    Legit seems like you ranked your WRs just on combine performance

    I like Bradburry in a zone type scheme and I think he’ll be solid but Round 1 is way too pricey for a center with strength issues like his

  12. 2019 NFL Draft - Wide Receivers & Tight Ends

    I like the class a lot but I would disagree that there are a lot of studs. I see great depth and a bunch of late 1st/early 2nd guys but no true stud prospects. Metcalf - he has all the tools you want with an elite WR1 - size, speed, lateral quickness. However, it’s hard to overlook the lack of film on him. Furthermore, he was only asked to run rudimentary routes and struggled a good bit with drops. While we can say that he has the quickness needed to become a good route runner, it’s still a big unknown whether he can translate that. Hard for me to put him as an elite WR prospect given those concerns. AJ Brown - hard to put career slot WRs with speed isssues in the elite WR category. Marquise Brown - hard to put a WR under 170lbs in the elite WR category Harry - really struggles to separate even against poor PAC 12 CBs. That’s a huge red flag to me. Butler - awesome height/speed combo but he’s a one speed player and really struggles changing directions and getting his hips low. I would include Harmon in this tier as well and he’s my WR2 right now behind Metcalf. All of these guys have one thing they’re great at but each one has a significant flaw as well that prevents them from being a well rounded prospect.

    Then you wouldn’t have touched guys like Jadaveon Clowney and Derwin James at their draft spots. Both of those guys didn’t look like the same players their last years in school. Seems unfair given that Oliver can’t choose what teams he’s playing. What is Bosa’s signature game? What about Denzel Ward last year? Did Bradley Chubb have a signature game last year?

    Why does a player need a "signature" game? I've seen Arizona and Texas Tech from this year and Arizona, South Florida, and Memphis from 2017. All were great. Very strange requirement to have for a prospect.

    Ugh. Houston’s schedule was A LOT harder than Buffalo’s. What big game did Oliver fail to show up in?
