This kid Hayden can play. Hopefully we can pick him up in the 3rd round. I still say it be best if we could trade down and get more picks. I think the St. Louis lambs got 2 picks in the first. I we could swap our first for one of there's and get an additional pick would be ideal.

Raiders a lesson in draft mismanagement
http://min.scout.com/2/1281226.html

Tough reading but I can't help but wonder if it would have made any difference who we drafted (when we hadn't thrown our picks away). Gallery, Huff, McClain and yes, even Fatass himself, were all regarded as good picks at the time by the majority of "experts". Was it rank bad luck none of them panned out or was it the organisation itself? Were they all doomed the minute they were dropped into the Raider environment with the pressure and $ of a 1st round pick?

I feel it's a mixture of all of the above. Realistically, the odds of use having that much bad luck with top tier picks are very slim. Organization, the never ending bad coaching, too much money, too much pressure to produce for a horrible team... All factors. Analyzing JaCarcass' cerebral substance before drafting him seems to have been neglected as well. Or maybe the experts liked setting Al to take the bad pick? I always wondered if that's why Al took Russell? Merely theory I know. I was hoping for Troy Smith that year honestly.

http://min.scout.com/2/1281226.html

so true, but painful to read. and even more painful to watch! they should put all these former raiders together for a reality TV show. something like "bullshit island" or "survivor: al davis."

i used to wonder how matt millen kept his job in detroit after all those shitty drafts, but now it makes sense. matt millen learned his trade from al. saying "i learned everything from al davis" might sound good if you're talking about something other than the draft.

nowhere to go but up from here!

Hi, I'm new to the forum. I go by 808 raider (from Hawaii). 808 is hawaiis area code. Anyway, as far as the draft goes, I think if we can't get shariif Floyd at 3, then we should trade down for more picks. Honestly, theres not many players in this draft that are first round prospects. And as far as free agency goes, I do have to back mckenzie up in a suttle approch to it. We've all seen what happens in signing big names in free agency (eagles). Look, bottom line is its going to be a rebuilding process in years to come. So we need to make the right decisions for the future of the raiders. Signing 30 something year old players to me, in my opinion, is not what we need to be doing. Sure some veterans can mentor young players, but some vets are just too expensive, and not much left in the tank. Its gonna be ugly for a few years, I hate to say it, cause its been ugly for far too long. But this has to be built from the ground up, so let's just hold tight, and the silver and black shall rise again! Raider nation!

Glad to have you on here, welcome!

haha...actually Miliner wouldn't be a bad pick talentwise but for me, I'm done with players from Alabama.  We have our own terd in Slowlando McLame but Dre Kirkpatrick (last year's Bama CB) is a bust so far.   Not even to mention 4 players got kicked off the team recently for theft............

Number of draft picks per year - Reggie McKenzie vs Al Davis
« Reply #42 on: March 12, 2013, 06:05:05 PM »
Green Bay Packers Draft History (# of picks each year Reggie McKenzie was there) - compared with how many picks the Raiders had during those years with Al Davis picking.

2011 - Packers 10 picks (Raiders 8 picks)
2010 - Packers 7 picks (Raiders 9 picks)
2009 - Packers 8 picks (Raiders 6 picks)
2008 - Packers 9 picks (Raiders 5 picks)
2007 - Packers 11 picks (Raiders 11 picks)
2006 - Packers 12 picks (Raiders 7 picks)
2005 - Packers 11 picks (Raiders 7 picks)
2004 - Packers 6 picks (Raiders 9 picks)
2003 - Packers 9 picks (Raiders 10 picks)
2002 - Packers 6 picks (Raiders 8 picks)
2001 - Packers 6 picks (Raiders 7 picks)
2000 - Packers 13 picks (Raiders 6 picks)
1999 - Packers 12 picks (Raiders 7 picks)
1998 - Packers 8 picks (Raiders 9 picks)
1997 - Packers 8 picks (Raiders 6 picks)
1996 - Packers 8 picks (Raiders 7 picks)
1995 - Packers 10 picks (Raiders 7 picks)
1994 - Packers 9 picks (Raiders 6 picks)


Totals for those 18 years:

Packers: 163 picks (average 9 picks per year)
Raiders: 135 picks (average 7.5 picks per year)


More important would be how many of those picks were successful. You can look that up yourself here:

I hope not.  I am not sold on this kid.  We need help everywhere - both lines, secondary, LBs....regardless of where you stand on Palmer or Pryor for our QB, we have 2 serviceable QBs for the time being.  IMO, we need help elsewhere.

Here's a player I think has the potential to add to our soon-to-be depleted D-line. Has great hands & frame that can be built upon entering the NFL. Hypothetically if we don't move down (which I think is the best choice given the opportunity). :

I also like a Jarvis Jones pick if we keep our 3rd.

Looks good from that description, but ESPN's Todd McShay puts him outside the top 10 in the 1st round due to "character baggage" (arrested in his Freshman year for possession of under 2 ounces of Marijuana). You know Reggie is concerned about character. You knows how he would feel about the marijuana arrest? Apparently he hasn't had any issues since that one.

I didn't know about his criminal past. That will become a factor in where he's drafted. I know McClain had run-ins with the law when he was younger & I thought it was a chance at taking him in the 1st but I figured if his play on the field out weighed that then it was worth it...lol Obviously NOT! Can't have another disappointment taken with a high pick let alone any pick. If that is the case, no matter how long ago it was, we don't need it on our team. Thanks Randy, for the extra info.


McShay is a JOKE! Look at #99 who had "issues as well.... RayLewis had issues..... There are Some growning pains that come with being a young millionaire..... We cannot have any more head cases here.... ONLY ones that are all out CRAZY and want to just BLOW EVERYONE UP!! Those are the issues that I want in a Draft pick!

On the other end, Mel Kiper has Moore going to the Jaguars with the 2nd pick in the 1st round:

In other mock drafts I've seen him going to the Eagles and Browns. McShay has him dropping to #13 (Tampa Bay) due to the character issues. Seems like he'll definitely go in the 1st half of the 1st round though.
