2014 NFL mock draft: LT Jake Matthews to Pittsburgh Steelers with 15th pick

With the 15th pick in the 2014 Arrowhead Pride mock draft, Pittsburgh Steelers GM SacramentoDrew selects... The Pittsburgh Steelers are in the midst of a somewhat major rebuild having lost key players and leaders across the board over the last couple of seasons such as James Harrison, LaMarr Woodley, Brett Keisel, and most recently Emmanuel Sanders. However, one thing that they have that other teams in rebuild mode usually don't possess is a true franchise QB in Big Ben Roethlisberger. When I think of Big Ben, the images that come to mind are getting knocked around in the pocket, limping...

Raider Draft Radar 2014: Running back

Must Reads Raider Draft Radar: Quarterback Levi Damien Must Reads Raider Draft Radar: Quarterback We continue with the Raider Draft Radar series, moving on to the running backs. There are some intriguing running backs in this class but not many fit the bill for the Raiders. With the off-season additions of Maurice Jones-Drew and CFL star running back, Kory Sheets, running back is down the list a ways as far as major needs. With that in mind, it would have to be a guy they really like who is shockingly still on the board for them to set aside greater needs in favor of...

USC WR Marqise Lee has already overcome the odds

There are a lot of people in professional sports that have amazing back stories of overcoming obstacles and surviving tough situations. In that way the story of USC WR and potential first round pick Marqise Lee is not unique, but it is still uplifting and deserves to be spotlighted. He recently told his story of growing up in the rough area of Inglewood California to ESPN. “I grew up in Inglewood, which is pretty bad. Violent. Unsafe. You had to look over your shoulder 24/7. It wasn't a place you wanted to stay.” says Lee as he is driving through his old stomping grounds. At just...

Lack of big contract and addition of MJD has all the pressure off Darren Mcfadden

Lack of big contract and addition of MJD has all the pressure off Darren Mcfadden

It has been awhile since the bulk of Raider Nation has had faith in what Darren McFadden was able to do on the field. There are legitimate reasons to have lost trust in McFadden, he hasn't played well the last couple years and he has never stayed healthy. He is being given the chance to change all of that. There has never been less pressure on Darren as a Raider, and in fact he probably hasn't had less pressure on him since all the way back to his high-school days. The Raiders have brought in a known (though aging) star in Maurice Jones-Drew as his competition this year so they are not...

With the 6th pick in the 2014 Mile High Report Community Mock Draft, Atlanta Falcons GM DeBroGermany selects... The Falcons would prefer a high quality pass rusher, but Jadeveon Clowney and Khalil Mack are already off the board. That's okay; the Falcons can pay attention to another tremendous need. Last season the offensive line was a mess, and even after the signing of RG Jon Asamoah there were still a lot of question marks left.

Maurice Jones-Drew coins moniker for Raiders 2013 free agent class:

Maurice Jones-Drew coins moniker for Raiders 2013 free agent class: "The Throwaways"

The theme of the Raiders off-season has been that of the team adding those players other teams gave up on. They're all "salty veterans" with "chips on their shoulders" and "something to prove". And as in most cases, the talk gets tiresome so the need is to take that talk and use it to one's advantage. "It's OK every now and then to be the bad guy, I guess," said Maurice Jones-Drew. "We're just kind of the throwaways it seems like." "The Throwaways" has a nice ring to it. Sounds a lot like the action film "The Expendables" which was cast mostly of over the hill action stars. NFL players are...

Justin Tuck: "I feel like I'm 25"

One of the first veteran players the Raiders brought in this off-season was former New York Giants defensive end, Justin Tuck.

Some Clarification is in Order: The Offensive Line and the Run Game

When people analyze the effectiveness of a team's run game, most know each teams offensive line has a role in the potency of said running attack but we too often overlook them or just focus on the running backs themselves. Today I want look at the what coaches expect of their offensive lines. From high school up through the NFL (or any professional football league for that matter) the goals of the offensive line remains clear and simple. These coaches expectations for offensive lines are uniform and focus on two goals: Goal #1: Ensure the back makes it to the line of scrimmage This is the...

Details on Alex Smith's contract talks with the Kansas City Chiefs

Alex Smith's reps are talking to the KC Chiefs about a new multi-year contract in the $14-17 million per year range, according to a report. We've known since the end of the 2013 NFL season that an extension for Alex Smith was coming because Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt said that the two sides would like to do that. And when the owner wants his quarterback extended, the quarterback is usually extended. What we've been left to wonder is a.) when a contract could get done and b.) how long the extension will be and c.) how much it will pay Smith per year. Mike Florio of Pro Football...

Marcel Reece: Matt Schaub will allow Greg Olson to be "as creative as he's been in his career"

As far as being the face of the Raiders and the identity of this team, they don't get much more ideal than Marcel Reece. The seven-year Raider is coming off a second consecutive Pro Bowl appearance and just signed a new long term deal with the team this off-season. Reece watched as a lot of good Raider players left town this off-season. Most notably Jared Veldheer and Lamarr Houston. The Raiders tried to fill Veldheer's shoes early in free agency when they brought in Roger Saffold, but he failed his physical. They then signed Justin Tuck to fill Lamarr Houston's shoes at defensive end. The...
