  1. Loved that the raiders didnt bite on any of these ludacris trade rumors that were going around. The raiders fleeced the bears into the mack trade, now every team wants 1st rounders for their disgruntled players. Our rookies, and 2nd year players all are a huge part of our small, but unexpected success. We snagged arden key, mo hurst, pj hall, hunter renfrow, foster moreu, Trayvon Mullen, and max crosby all after the 1st round. Gruden and mayock have something going here. Keep our picks, we finally have people who can find talent in the draft! People really wanted the raiders to not only trade our 1st round picks for leo William’s AND/OR beasley, and robby anderson and for what? 8weeks? Then all 3 would want huge deals that the raiders SHOULDNT pay because we have our own who have earned it in the silver and black. NOT TO MENTION the loss of the 1st rounders! This isnt madden people!! #RN4L !!

  2. Glad we kept all our picks. Getting a few guys to help the LB corps, can’t hurt. One of the roster spots are free from them releasing Justin Phillips. What are the other two corresponding moves? It sounds like they might bring back Marquel Lee from IR too.

  3. Nice moves, now hopefully we go get Scandrick to have a veteran presence in the secondary to help Mullen and other guys step their game up. Shouldnt cost much at all.

  4. The Raiders have already become a solid team, and they’re loaded with top picks in the upcoming draft. They’re building a solid foundation. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them draft a young QB if the right one falls to them with one of their first round picks.
