Oakland Raiders Get Two Steals in the 4th Round


Can you say excited!!!

The Oakland Raiders select Justin Ellis and Keith McGill in the 4th Round. Raiders acquired an extra 4th rounder last night after trading back in the 3rd.

Both Ellis and McGill fill huge needs at DT and CB, and add some much-needed depth.

Ellis is a light-footed NT, who can take on double teams in the run game, and still have enough wiggle to attack the passer.

McGill is a huge press corner with Richard Sherman comparisons. Rated very high on many Draft Boards, but had some off-field concerns.

These two players are just what the Raiders needed and can be starters in a year or two. Great upside for both.

Reggie has continued to find talent while also getting great value.

Reggie McKenzie so far has knocked this 2014 NFL Draft out the park, Raider Nation should be Hyped!

    Too good to be true kind of stuff…. sweeeet…

  • Kenneth Adams

    Great job RM

  • Dan Huttner

    Lets just hope that these picks pan out, or the jackals will be screaming for Reggie’s job.

  • Chris Schroeder

    Where are all the RM haters now?

  • KloverJane

    In hiding evidently

  • Ryan Pierce

    Raider Nation is always hyped! But you said it Vic he really knocked this draft out of the park on paper anyways. Of course we won’t know until they play on Sundays but man… RM has us with arguably the best draft so far. Mack is a future Terrell Suggs. Him and Sio Moore in about 2 years. Mannnnnn old Peyton better retire when he can! “Win, lose, or tie…. Raiders til I die!”

  • Jaime Olguin

    I’m with you on this one Vic, hopfully we could add a wide out with one of these last three picks, and we still
    have the undrafted there will be some great players out of that bunch as well.
    GO RAIDERS!!!!!!

    The jackals will scream no matter what….they are not true Raiders fans.

    Nice job Reggie!

  • Gregg Brennan

    Excellent draft, just wish we’d picked up a WR but all the best ones were gone very early and I think Carr is a better pick than Marquise Lee. Gabe Jackson is a mauler and should settle in on the line nicely next to Wiz II. Mack should be a monster, possibly better than Clowney…and how awesome would that be? Tough schedule this year, but I don’t think we’ll be going 4-12 again. Good job RM.

    ur going to love keith mcgill. he’s a true safety but switched to corner last year. hard switch but he did it. excellent size and speed. has a little trouble catching the ball which is why he plays defense !! seriously, he will be a shut down corner. give him two years of experience before passing any judgments. he’s got a lot of learning to do.
