  1. 2018 Draft Thread v.2 - DONE AND IN THE BOOKS

    Yes but at the time Warmack was drafted no one would have dared to say he couldn’t play with nastiness. This is going to be a different game for Nelson. He has a high likelihood of succeeding, but I have to say he is comparing draftnik wise to Robert Gallery imo (I know different positions, but I’m referring to safeness of pick). We don’t know anything till he takes the field and at this point I’m weary of calling anyone a sure fire star.

    For being “way too small” Joseph has not been bad. Especially considering they never let him be the true FS, which is where he would absolutely flourish (if he does) considering his skill set. We have way more needs on D than finding a replacement for Joseph. Look at the other safety position for example.

    This is what everyone said about Warmack.
  4. Raiders sign Rashaan Melvin

    You are fair and I respect that. I am not 100% enthused with everything the Raiders have done this season. However, they are one year removed from a great season, have the same pieces (minus Crabtree), and a whole draft in front of them. Along with this there are a lot of questions in the AFC West. Is Mahomes gonna be better than Smith this year? Is this the year Rivers drops off? Are LA built for success or are going to have a year similar to the Raiders this year? Can Denver’s offense rebound enough to put them back in games their defense holds the fort for? Can Carr rebound and lead a potent offense like the Raiders broke their playoff drought on? Is that defense going to still be a leaky faucet? A lot of questions in this division and so far I think it’s very interesting because I don’t feel like there is a clear front runner (best argument is LA) at this point.

    Did not want him back. Let’s use this money for Trumaine or a couple of the smaller level guys.

    And to clarify I don’t hate Jackson, I just don’t feel like a fit for the scheme we will be running.

    Yeas but Conley looked a whole hell of a lot better on man coverage press even with those restraints than Jackson does.
  8. 2018 Draft thread - PICK THE FASTEST GUY AVAILABLE

    At this juncture with the fresh combine stats in all of our minds on top of film and pure instincts and ball skill I have a little bit more certainty to my wishes. If Denzel Ward or Minkah are there at then I run to the podium with that card in a nanosec, but it seems unlikely they will be there. At our current position without a fall like that I would be squarely happy with Vita Vea (who ive been high on all along), Roquan (who is just a great ball player and no physical slouch), and Derwin James (barring he didn’t jump out of our draft position either). If any of those are not the pick then I want to trade down for Hurst, Davenport, or Guice. Love all three but ten is a little rich for em in my opinion. Though if it was Guice at ten I could deal. I would not touch Jackson. He does not seem like a Guenther fit at all. Edmunds scares me too.

    I just don’t think Michel lasts that long. Would love it if he did though.
  10. 2018 Draft thread - PICK THE FASTEST GUY AVAILABLE

    Give me Ward, Smith, Vea, or (unlikely) Barkley at 9/10 and the best tackle left at 41. I honestly am still at a loss with who will be available at the tackle position at 41. I’m trying to get a judge but it’s really up and down for all the prospects this year. Would not be opposed to a RB like Chubb there either. Though that could be early for him.
  11. Raiders parting ways with K Janikowski

    Wow, I don’t understand the Jano hate. He was picked in the first (he didn’t ask for that), but was easily the best part of that team for over a decade while most teams struggle to find a long term answer at that position because they are cheap. Sounds like bitterness to me.
  12. Raiders 2018 Free Agency Thread

    I absolutely agree with this.
  13. 2018 Draft thread - PICK THE FASTEST GUY AVAILABLE

    I can see that with Vea. I don’t know though, he pops out as kind of a Ngata type of prospect to me. I do like Ward more and think you’re dead on right there. If him and Smith are both on the board I’d have a hard time taking Smith over him, but would not be upset if they did. Just think with how awful the secondary has been that Ward could be a better pick for us. I’d be happy with either one really.
  14. 2018 Draft thread - PICK THE FASTEST GUY AVAILABLE

    I put him ahead of Edmunds but on the same level as Ward and Vea. I really like Vea.
  15. Yeah get that outta here.
