Sioasi Mariner | Photo by Andy Altenburger/Icon Sportswire via Raiders’ undrafted free-agent signing starred for Utah State in 2019 We’ve been digging into some of the Raiders’ undrafted free-agent signings (the team has not announced any of them yet). So, let’s look at receiver Siaosi Mariner out of Utah State. He was a favorite target of Green Bay Packers’ first-round pick, quarterback Jordan Love, in 2019. Mariner had 62 catches for 976 yards and 10 touchdowns for the Aggies, and caught 41 passes for first downs. He was second-team All Mountain West and first team...

Poll: Where do Raiders belong in post-draft NFL power rankings?

Poll: Where do Raiders belong in post-draft NFL power rankings?

Cory Littleton | Photo by Harry How/ How much do you think they improved this offseason? Now that the NFL draft is over and the 2020 rosters are pretty much set, sans for a few tweaks here and there, many late offseason power rankings are popping up. Most of the rankings I’ve seen have the Raiders in the 21-24 range. They drafted No. 12, so basically they ranked No. 21 after the season. They went 7-9 in 2019. After the Raiders added big on defense in free agency and added weapons on offense in the draft, where do you think they rank in the NFL? Remember, other teams got better, too....

Raiders rookie DT Mike Panasiuk will do whatever it takes to make the roster

Mike Panasiuk | Photo by Adam Hunger/ “I’d play fullback or offensive line if they want me to,” says former Michigan State undrafted free agent After the dust had settled on the 2020 NFL draft, the Las Vegas Raiders signed former Michigan State defensive tackle Mike Panasiuk this week. Did the fact that the Raiders didn’t draft a player at his position help make Panasiuk’s decision to sign with them as an undrafted free agent any easier? “They could have drafted 12 defensive tackles in front of me, I wouldn’t care,” Panasiuk told me in a phone interview this week....

Jameis Winston’s new contract pales in comparison to Marcus Mariota’s

Jameis Winston’s new contract pales in comparison to Marcus Mariota’s

Marcus Mariota, Jameis Winston Mariota’s deal with Raiders is much better Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota will always be connected. They won back-to-back Heisman Trophies, Winston was the No.1 overall draft pick, while Mariota was the No. 2 pick, in 2015 and they are both on new teams this year after having spotty results as starting NFL quarterbacks. So, yes, the comparisons will always continue. But in terms of their second NFL contracts, there is no comparison. Mariota blows Winston out of the water. On Wednesday, details emerged about Winston’s one-year deal with the New...

Silver Minings: Raiders don’t get great consensus draft grades

Damon Arnette | Photo by Gregory Shamus/ Many draft experts don’t give Las Vegas high grades We know draft grades right after the draft don’t carry a ton of weight, as you need to see about three years of NFL play to get an accurate account of a draft class. Yet, we all do them and we all read them. So, draft grades being assigned immediately after the process will live forever. To that point, this is a very cool chart. It gives a look at several of the top draft experts on the internet and break them down. Check it out, it, be warned ... you won’t like it. The Raiders’...
