A look at Raiders’ decade of second-round picks

A look at Raiders’ decade of second-round picks

Mario Edwards | Photo by Brett Carlsen/ P.J. Hall’s failure is the latest in a long line of Day 2 draft busts The Las Vegas Raiders were widely criticized for throwing in a 2020 second-round pick in their 2018 trade of Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears. It seemed excessive and unnecessary. But maybe they were onto something. The Raiders just aren’t very good drafting in the second round and this week’s release of defensive tackle P.J. Hall is the latest example. Hall was the No. 57 overall pick in 2018 and he did very little before the Raiders gave up on him after just two seasons....

Can the Raiders be this season’s Titans?

Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/ And then some ... After their 10th game of the 2019 season, the Tennessee Titans must have been feeling really good about themselves. Though they weren’t in line for a playoff berth yet, mounted comeback-after-comeback in a home game against the Kansas City Chiefs, eventually winning 35-32. The eventual Super Bowl-winning Chiefs led by scores of 10-0, 19-13, and 29-20, but the Titans would not accept some fate that they couldn’t beat Patrick Mahomes with Ryan Tannehill. But they could. They had to have Derrick Henry and all, but yeah, they could. First...

Don’t be surprised if Raiders use Lynn Bowden Jr. under center

Lynn Bowden Jr. | Photo by John Byrum/Icon Sportswire via Rookie’s versatility could lead to a Taysom Hill-type role at times  When the Las Vegas Raiders drafted Lynn Bowden Jr. out of Kentucky, there were many questions. Did the Raiders have a plan of making Bowden a wide receiver like he was mostly with the Wildcats? Were the Raiders intrigued by his emergency work as a quarterback for last year? It soon was realized that Bowden would primarily be a running back for the Raiders. However, coach Jon Gruden made it clear he would move around the offense and that Bowden would play the...
