Raiders Pick or Pass: Tremaine Edmunds

Raiders Pick or Pass: Tremaine Edmunds

Should the Raiders select the First-Team All-ACC linebacker with the tenth overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft? While Reggie McKenzie has historically opted to draft linebackers in the middle rounds, the Raiders will have a huge need at the position if free agent NaVorro Bowman does not re-sign with Oakland. One prospect the Raiders could consider with their first round pick is Virginia Tech linebacker Tremaine Edmunds. Would the First-Team All-ACC playmaker be a wise selection for the Raiders at ten overall? The staff at Silver and Black Pride weighs in. Tyler Green...

NFL draft 2018: Raiders biggest needs

NFL draft 2018: Raiders biggest needs

By the end of this week the Raiders will have a lot of new, young talent in house. They like to say they are going for ‘Best Player Available’, but pure BPA drafts are a myth. It’s always a combo of need and BPA, usually leaning heavily toward need. With that in mind, here are the Raiders top needs heading into this draft: Offensive tackle Most positions this offseason the Raiders added players who were either an outright replacement for a player lost or a slight upgrade. But not offensive tackle. They cut Marshall Newhouse and signed 32-year-old Breno Giacomini. Though the team says...

Raiders add former third round pick CB Daryl Worley, college teammate of Karl Joseph

Today the team announced they have added free agent cornerback Daryl Worley. The former third round pick (77 overall) is entering his third NFL season out of West Virginia where he was teammates with Raiders safety Karl Joseph. Both players were selected in the 2016 draft, Joseph in the first round at 14 overall.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie: Draft a ‘collaborative’ process with Jon Gruden

Reggie McKenzie may be soft-spoken, but as general manager his words have carried plenty of weight in the Raiders’ draft room the last six years. This year, though, there’s another voice in the room: That of Jon Gruden, the new head coach who signed a 10-year contract with the franchise. In the past, McKenzie has maintained that he lets his pre-constructed draft board have the final say when it comes time for the Raiders to select players. At a news conference last Friday, McKenzie was asked which voice will register loudest this year when the Raiders are...

Raiders sign cornerback Daryl Worley

The Raiders added another cornerback Monday, signing former Panthers starter Daryl Worley. Worley was traded to Philadelphia in March but released by the Eagles on April 15 after he was reportedly arrested near the team’s facility. NFL Network reported that Worley was found passed out in a vehicle blocking an intersection and arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence along with weapons and disorderly conduct charges. The Eagles acquired Worley in a trade that sent receiver Torrey Smith to Carolina. Worley, 23, was a third-round pick by the...

Raiders exercise fifth-year option on WR Amari Cooper

The Raiders made the easy call Monday to exercise their fifth-year option on receiver Amari Cooper, keeping him under contract through the 2019 season. Cooper, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2015 draft, is one of just three players to record 70-plus catches and 1,000-plus receiving yards in each of his first two NFL seasons. He had 48 catches for 680 yards in 14 games last season but also set a career-high with seven touchdowns. New head coach Jon Gruden has said he plans to make Cooper a “focal point” of the Raiders’ offense next season. As a former...

Watch: Brett Kollmann video mock draft puts player to Raiders whose ‘obsession’ matches Jon Gruden

This one is for those who hated my mock draft. And to be completely honest, I’m not too happy with it either. Putting together this year’s mock has been as difficult as I can remember any mock draft in years past. If you hated it, you understand how hard it was for me to have the Raiders passing up on an elite talent for a trade down to fill a glaring need. Well, Brett Kollmann will make your day a little brighter then, because he has the Raiders taking the very player I have them passing up in favor of a trade down. In his 1-hour mock draft special, Kollmann makes his case for his...

Mike Mayock talks Raiders draft options at 10 overall, beyond

This week NFL Network’s most respected draft expert hopped on conference call to answer the media’s questions. Some of those questions were about what the Raiders might do with the tenth overall pick. On best case scenario at 10 and trading down: MAYOCK: I’ll tell you what, it’s been kind of fascinating watching Coach Gruden and Reggie and everybody working the free agent period. I think they were probably more active than anybody. What they’re trying to do, I think, was sign a bunch of one-year contracts to fill a bunch of needs so that when the draft day came, they could deal...

Rookies will have opportunities to help Raiders

The 2014 draft was a windfall for the Raiders, bringing a franchise quarterback (Derek Carr), a star edge rusher (Khalil Mack), a Pro Bowl guard (Gabe Jackson) and a defensive tackle (Justin Ellis) who just signed a three-year extension. Recent drafts have not been so fruitful. The Raiders landed receiver Amari Cooper in the first round in 2015 and starting safety Karl Joseph in 2016. Otherwise, production from their last three classes has been limited — something new head coach Jon Gruden has pointed out on multiple occasions. At the recent NFL owners’...
