    the Raiders would do better moving back in the first round and picking up more draft picks andselectingh a player like Aaron Donald DT/DE a solid pick

  • Anthony Venegas

    Sammy Watkins…

  • Logan Kuehner

    Trade Down and grab Mike Evans or Brandin Cooks.

  • Fred Lemke


  • Leddy

    Though it would be nice to draft Watkins, Robinson, or Bortles, It makes more sense to trade down and gain a few more picks to help solidify this off season and our future. I have never been crazy about our coaching staff as you review the sorry teams they came from, but I am hopeful and excited for our team this year. My only question is if we have an 8-8 season, is it going to be good enough to retain McKenzie?

  • Raider Grant

    Leddy, if Raiders go 8-8 it would be enough to solidify McKenzie staying aboard. Allen though???? Go Raiders

  • Ross O

    Take Aaron Donald at 5.Enough said.

  • Leddy

    Raider Grant, if we end up 8-8 I think McKenzie may feel obligated to renew Allen’s contract.

  • tony manzoni

    If the raiders have a chance to get manziel and pass, they will pay just like any team that passes on this freak of nature. He takes hits better than any QB In football his size is not an issue.
    He is the most talented exciting player to come along for a long time.
    Build an offensive line around him and enjoy many titles in the immediate future as well as having the top box office draw.
    No other player in the draft has his star power or immediate positive impact to the Raiders franchise.
    With him Chuckie might have second thoughts.

  • Raider Grant

    Time will tell
