    Abeasley27 reacted to Jesus in Day#2 - did you catch what Fontenot said in Pitts press conference last night? (2nd round trade-down?)   
    He's just messing with D-Led whose counting skills leave a lot to be desired.

    Who would you guys say is the biggest surprise pick or faller so far?
    Mine would be Alex Leatherwood at 17 as a surprise pick and my faller so far would be JOK. I still can’t believe he’s on the board. And with how coach Pees likes to disguise coverages he may end up being our best fit.

    Exactly.  Our offense, if the line gels and we get that running game moving, should be terrifying.

    🤣 well I read an article that said it seems the raiders skip the pre draft process and the scouting process and just watch the last 4-6 games of the year.

    I think with the whirlwind that leads up to the draft these guys need some time to reset, recalibrate if you will and REST some of these guys haven’t slept well in 2-3 days maybe even weeks I’m sure

    After seeing who each of our nfc south opponents drafted I honestly think we improved the most after the first round. 
     
    Also read where it said that Kyle Pitts may end up being the kind of player that teams start drafting in order to stop him. That’s pretty high praise and I like it.

    The raiders have lost their **** minds between the pick this year and ferrell at 4 the year before.

    You have to wonder if Mayock even has any input with how many head scratching moves the Raiders have made in the draft.  Gruden is Al Davis reincarnated.

    Answer to your first question... I never said we  were  going to draft a quarterback. Answer number two. I've already accepted my Lord and Savior ... The man Christ Jesus. Jesus of Nazareth. I suggest you do the same.

    Abeasley27 reacted to Return of the Gaucho in I heard no QB's are coming out next year...   
    I mean, that may be true, and it may not be. At the start of the 2019 NCAA season, Joe Burrow was an afterthought. Before the 2018 season, nobody thought Daniel Jones would be a top pick. People knew Kyler Murray would be a first round draft pick, they just assumed (correctly) that it would be to play on the diamond.
    Next years draft class could look like the 2018 QB draft class, or it could be more like this years draft class. We don't, and can't, know now. What we do know is that even Matt Ryan's detractors would have to admit that he is at least "serviceable," and he is here for at least 2 more years due to his contract.
    If we take a QB at 4 this year, so be it. If we don't upgrade the starters around Ryan on the offense, or shore up the defense, we are more likely to be picking high again next year, and the year after that. Taking a QB in the first round this year, in my mind, does nothing to help the team now, and would likely mean that the QB drafted starts year 3 on a lesser team. Alternatively, if we take an impact player like Pitts, Sewell, or Surtain, or trade back and stockpile picks for the next 2 drafts, whatever QB is taken next year or the year after will come into a better team and have a higher chance of success. We would then have a starting QB (that hopefully works out) with at least 4 years on a cheap contract and hopefully a cap with less dead money. The window to win is longer, and the overall team seems more likely to be better.
    But what do I know, I am not even great at my actual job, let alone Terry Fontenot's.

    Are we so sure that no one is going to want a “generational” OT (Sewell), TE (Pitts), or WR (Chase) that they won’t trade up to take one of those ahead of Cincy, Miami or Detroit? I mean there are real possibilities for that to happen also I think.

    Abeasley27 reacted to Rings in Exploring Trade Down   
    There are teams who think they are in win now mode and only a QB away with coaches and GMs fighting for their jobs and will be desperate to pay the price to move up to save their jobs.  We have to take advantage of that.  We need depth, we need cheap players and we need defense really bad.  Lot of good defensive players in this draft, it’s not strong at the top but it’s fairly deep depending on position.  Let someone overpay for their QB, we can get a ton of defensive talent this year and start rebuilding that way.  
    Build a strong team over the next two years and maybe make a run.  If not, then go get your QB of the future and drop them into a strong wholistic team on both sides of the ball and have four years of a cheap contract with them to surround with even more talent in free agency.  The worst thing we can do to a rookie QB is to make them try to do what we asked Ryan to do the last 13 years, carry a team on your back with next to no help from your defense.  That’s my dream scenario, can’t wait to see what happens.
