Raiders now know where all their first-rounders fall

AP

Four more spots in the 2019 NFL Draft order were set with the weekend’s results, and the Raiders now know exactly where they’ll be making their three first-round picks.

The Eagles slotted into the 25th spot in the order after yesterday’s loss, followed by the Colts, Cowboys and Chargers.

The final four picks will go to the losers of next week’s conference championship games, then the Super Bowl loser and the champion.

And since the Cowboys traded their pick to the Raiders in the Amari Cooper deal, the Raiders are now sitting on the fourth, 24th (from the Bears in the Khalil Mack deal), and 27th in the first round.

That’s a lot of valuable real estate for a team that doesn’t have a home at the moment, and a good start for coach Jon Gruden and new General Manager Mike Mayock to begin a long rebuild.

Here’s a look at the draft order as it stands after the divisional round games:

1. Cardinals 3-13

2. 49ers 4-12

3. Jets 4-12

4. Raiders 4-12

5. Buccaneers 5-11

6. Giants 5-11

7. Jaguars 5-11

8. Lions 6-10

9. Broncos 6-10

10. Bills 6-10

11. Bengals 6-10

12. Packers 6-9-1

13. Dolphins 7-9

14. Falcons 7-9

15. Washington 7-9

16. Panthers 7-9

17. Browns 7-8-1

18 Vikings 8-7-1

19. Titans 9-7

20. Steelers 9-6-1

21. Seahawks 10-6

22. Ravens 10-6

23. Texans 11-5

24. Raiders (via Bears 12-4)

25. Eagles 9-7

26. Colts 10-6

27. Raiders (via Cowboys 10-6)

28. Chargers 12-4

  1. Too bad for the Raiders there isn’t a Mahomes level QB in this year’s draft class. I’m interested to see what Gruden does with all that draft capital as Day 1 game changers in this year’s class look to be few and far between.

  2. Ideally we take Greedy Williams at 4. Dalton Risner at 24. And Josh Jacobs at 27. Then come back with a receiver near the top of round two with our second round pick.

    In free agency DE Frank Clark should be the priority. Clark will show the youngsters we drafted on the d-line the past year how it’s done. LB CJ Mosley would be another if the Ravens don’t re-sign him. On offense LT Trent Brown or going again for multi faceted guard Roger Saffold. TE Demetrius Harris as well.

    ————————————————————————————-
    Mahomes was the 10th pick in 2017 and the 2nd QB taken. No one really knew he was a “Mahomes level QB” at the time or 9 teams would have taken him earlier.

    So maybe there is a great QB in this draft that isn’t that highly thought of right now.

  4. Bosa looks like he’s going to have a very expensive price tag. Raiders look like they went all in on him at the beginning of the year, but failed to lock-up the number 1 pick. So after trading Mack to get all this capital to get Bosa, they might have to do another trade to get him. Then plus the negotiations of his contract will be just as difficult as Joey’s was you can guarantee that.

  5. If Gruden with his massive ego ignores Mike Mayock’s advice and uses his own “expertise” in making the selections then I doubt that any of those 3 first rounders that the Raiders have will pan out. This is based upon the horrible track record that Gruden has displayed in the past on most picks (Bucs, Raiders 2018 draft) when Gruden has controlled the draft.

    Raiders already have a franchise QB who played great in 2015, at an MVP level in 2016 and again this year in the 5 or 6 games when the offensive line wasn’t getting blown apart every passing play. He could use a playmaker or two, but really he just needs reasonable blocking in front of him. The center of the line is good, but the rookie OTs need to get much better or get replaced.

  7. In free agency DE Frank Clark should be the priority. Clark will show the youngsters we drafted on the d-line the past year how it’s done.

    Frank Clark isn’t going anywhere. He is already a top priority to keep in Seattle.

    I’m thinking Russell Wilson is their top priority and his contract ends next year. That will set Seattle back upwards of $30 million plus per year. So Clark at close to $20 million may not be doable for Seattle when considering Wilson. And Bobby Wagner has already made his preference known publicly (see PFT last week) to Seattle for resigning LB KJ Wright this year. So we’ll see on Clark.

  9. And history wI’ll repeat itself when in a few brief years, all three contracts will be up for renewal and the Raiders will be forced to trade them. See Mack and others. Wash, rinse and repeat.

  10. Now if only the guys picking knew what they were doing. While Mayock is a decent evaluator of college talent it’s a lot different making picks when you have zero pressure or consequences for those picks. These draft Day analysts are basically weatherman, if they’re wrong it’s not really a big deal. In the GM chair, even if Chucky gets final say, mayock will be the one who is ultimately held responsible if it goes well because there’s absolutely no way Gruden and his 100m$ is going to be the fall guy.

  11. A couple late first rounders in the hands of one of the worst head coaches in the league, and a guy who’s as qualified to be a GM as I am. Ain’t nobody worried. The train wreck continues.

  13. Mike Mayock is a huge Nick Foles Phan and Chucky isn’t loving Carr (I agree Raider Nation I don’t know why either) Lot of Mocks have the Raiders trading Carr to G Men for a #1 and then trading #4 overall to Philly for St. Nick. If the Raiders can pull a #1 for Carr I like it. Because Foles will be 10 mill a year cheaper and a little better QB. Still think Mack and Amari were mistakes.

    DeAndre Hopkins I believe was a 27th pick. I’d take him over Amari Cooper.

    ——-

    Aint no DeAndre Hopkins in this draft.

  15. “Raiders will try to trade out of one of those last spots to get another 1st next year.”

    Doubt it would be a first for those late round picks

    Wow slick50kc is making his first post season post ever on a monday after a kc playoff game. It must feel good to pound your chest. The question is will you be here next Monday. As far as post season and Raiders pick, I am sure Mike Mayock will help with that. Also with the 40+ million we save w/o having to pay Mack and Cooper…..who knows maybe we can take a run at UFA’s Dee Ford, and Allen Bailey. I would say Mitch Morse as well, but we already snagged Rodney Hudson from ya. Take care sunshine. As much as I dislike your Chiefs, I will always root against Brady and the Pats.

  17. Anyone who thinks Oakland will draft a QB or trade a first rounder for Nick Foles are complete idiots.

    Even if we dont get Bosa, Josh Allen is a supreme talent. If both are gone, look for a trade down for a Franchose QB needy team. Giants, Jags, Denver, Miami or Washington.

    Gruden will.address both DL and OT. Iften and early.

  18. Obviously not a Raiders Fan, but I’m actually looking forward to seeing how Mayock and Gruden function during this offseason. The draft and free agency will be interesting with them to watch maneuvering about.

  19. You can have all 32 first round picks in the next 5 years’ drafts, you STILL cant replace Mack. If I were Chucky, I would have surrendered some of my $10 million per year to keep him in Silver & Black.

  20. Amari Cooper was picked near the top of the draft order, but they traded him for the 27th overall pick, which is not much different from a second round pick. Raw deal.

  21. Cowboys fans think they got a great deal get the #4 pick by giving up the #27 pick and I like Amari so I hope it’s true.

    However, in retrospect Amari never played like the #4 pick. He often makes the highlight reel because of one play, one drive, one quarter but then he goes MIA the rest a the game or several games.

    You can blame that on the QB, the OL, the opposing D, the refs and the popcorn vendors but very rarely when was he open he was not the target of the pass and yet there is little consistency.

  22. Trade back twice with one of them and pickup an extra 2nd and a 4th. He could fill this roster out in one season if he wanted but I bet Gruden tries to have 3 #1s net year instead. First season in Vegas, 12-15 new rookie or 2nd year starters…..Raiders could be the new AFC West champion.
