    Trading Down

    Think logically if J Gruden was really looking for a Qb, would he make his intentions be known. Of Course he wouldn't. He be talking about the defense lineman bigtime. There is zero chance the Raiders trade up in this draft, they most likely trade back .( reason they are rebuilding the roster , and aren't one , or two players away) . It wouldn't surprise me if the Raiders traded back to the Redskins.(15) The redskins need a Qb bad,( A Smith career could be over) , and Raiders can pick up more draft capital.(probably another first rounder next year) The Raiders have a lot of draft capital in the next two years. They have a chance to replenish their roster fast. Mike Mayock built up a lot of contacts with these college coaches over the years working the draft. Let's see how much he can use that to his advantage.

    Trading Down

    Sure because he wants one of the players that probably goes before his pick( Bosa, J Allen, or QWilliams) . By hyping up one of the Qb's , some team trades up in front of the Raiders, and one of those players drop to him. If those players go off the board, the Raiders are most likely to trade back in the draft.

    Dolphins coaching staff and FO

    The Raiders aren't trading Carr. There is a rumor of a Raiders and Dolphins trade - The Raiders would trade one of their late first round picks(# 24,or #27) for the Dolphins CB Xavien Howard.( whose a Fa after the season) . There is no way I make that trade as good as Howard is. ( giving up too much for player in last year, versus a guy you would have control for five years). The Dolphins seem like they are going in tank mode the next couple years. ( total rebuild) They want one of the elite Qb's .( next year ,and 2021 Qb draft class much stronger)?. If that's true , I wouldn't be surprised if R Mckenize eventually becomes their GM.

    Kyler Murray

    Unfortunately the fourth pick in the draft is where the Qb hungry teams most likely make there move up. The first three teams in the draft aren't missing out on N Bosa,J Allen, or Q Williams . Not to mention it's really expensive to get up in the top three of the draft. Also the Jaguars are a win now team , they need a veteran Qb( N Foles) as a rookie Qb does them no good. ( you aren't winning anything with a rookie Qb) You trade up in the top three ( cost a lot of draft capital) you almost have to play that Qb right away. Beside the Giants , the two most likely teams to try and trade up for a Qb are the Dolphins , and the Redskins.

    Free Agency Strategy

    I doubt Cowboys move any of their offense lineman , as they are trying to upgrade that unit . Some of the free agent defections on the offense line have hurt that offense line effectiveness. I see the Cowboys investing probably through the draft in upgrading that offense line. ( they want that to be a strength again). I see them cutting in other areas than messing with the offense line.

    Free Agency Strategy

    Another Tidbit on Dallas . Is that Amari Cooper is going on his fifth year option. Amari Cooper has the same agent as K Mack .( why the Raiders moved him) . What that means is you can expect a holdout for Amari Cooper till he gets a longterm deal from the Cowboys. ( traded a first for him) So the Cowboys are going to have to pay him this year. That's going to have an effect on who they can keep this year too.

    Hearing Broncos will let Paradis test FA.

    Yes signing Denver Fa offense lineman has worked out great for teams in the past. Hey sign him to a big contract, as one of these Denver offensive lineman eventually has to work out for a new team. I know he's not a center but if you want a guard, I could see J Gruden moving K Osemele in a trade this offseason.

    Flacco to the Broncos

    Arizona didn't bring in Aj McCarron( Raiders traded for him). Mike Glennon was the Qb they brought in for a Josh Rosen. Denver made that trade probably to be able to draft one of the top cb's with their first pick in this draft. ( they aren't moving up for a Qb)That defense hasn't been the same as they need another CB . Jaguars I see most likely team to get N Foles. ( Eagles aren't going to let him go to the Redskins. Only thing maybe preventing that is a lot money they are paying Bortles. The Giants probably can get their Qb at 6. Redskins could be a team to look out for. 15 is a big drop back in the draft.
  9. From @mortreport and me: Mississippi St. DT Jeffery Simmons, projected to be a top 15-pick in April, suffered a knee injury during training that is thought to be a torn ACL, per league sources. A statement to offer clarity on Simmons' injury is expected to be released today.
  10. The Raiders are sitting in the ideal spot most likely where a team trades up to get the Qb. The Raiders are going with the top pass rusher left on their board at four. Can probably trade back, and still get the guy left they covet. ( or similar graded pass rusher) While getting more draft capital in the process. Also the pass rusher that would be left on the board probably isn't worth the fourth pick . Why ideally they would look to move back.

    Mac has to trade down...

    The Raiders aren't trading up in this draft, and are the most likely team to trade back in this draft. ( there are three players head and shoulder above the rest - N Bosa , Q Willians, and Josh Allen ). The Raiders sitting at 4 will draft a pass rushing De( can drop back and still get a guy like M Sweet) . D Carr is the least of the Raiders problems. He isn't going anywhere. Let's see first year playing in a new system( J Gruden) , offensive line due to injuries was suppose to be a strength - was really bad.( started two rookie tackles). Not to mention Gruden gutted the wr position. The first thing the Raiders must do is upgrade Rt position as B Parker wasn't ready to start(was never expected to play last year- D Penn injury forced him into the lineup. Probably can fix the offense line internally. LT K Miller , Lg Gabe Jackson( played with torn labrum he did in week one) C R Hudson RG D Good ( Fa expect them to re-sign) Rt K Osemele ( Would move him from lg to Rt. Lets see what Rams give the Raiders for giving them a gift.( Cj Anderson) when Gurley was hurt. The Raiders cut him after signing him , so his buddy S Mcvay could sign him. Time to wink wink return the favor.
  12. More likely Redskins trade for Aj McCarron ( 5 million ) or similar veteran Qb , than go just the rookie Qb route. THE redskins coaching staff is under pressure to win now. ( won't survive another losing season).

    Sam, Quincy, Bilal

    That's just silly. Jets have their Qb, and it just takes time . Anyone who thought a rookie Qb wasn't going to go through growing pains , weren't being honest with themselves.

    Khalil Mack couldn't protect a 20-0 lead.

    Only way the Raiders come out ahead is if Arden Key, Pj Hall,Maurice Hurst , and Fadol Brown become the pass rushers the Raiders think they can become. Raiders without a doubt traded away their best player on their team, but I expect the defense to improve because Paul Guenther is the best DC they have had in a long time. It's a shame K Mack never had a chance to play for him, and they really didn't get anything back that can help them this year.

    Khalil Mack couldn't protect a 20-0 lead.

    I'm surprised K Mack looked as great as he did missing all offseason, and training camp. Just came in a few days before the season started. His conditioning was pretty good for someone who been out that long. I'm stoked the Bears lost( give me top five pick in 2019 draft) , and I'm still alive in my suicide pool.( had the packers yesterday).
  16. Raiders defensive coordinators weren't very good the years K Mack was a Raider. ( that is a fact) . Paul Guenther is a legitimate DC who would have freed up K Mack to become without a doubt the best defender in football. ( K Mack will get much better the next couple of years- still has a lot room for improvement. Case in point you take K Mack rookie year versus Arden Key now. Key has a lot more pass rushing moves than Mack had his rookie year. K Mack needs to incorporate more of his pass rushing moves, than rely just on power. ( more time goes on he will understand this).
  17. That's just silly . k Mack is one of the best players on defense in this league . ( he doesn't take a back seat to any of those players) Those other players you mention just had better pieces around them . Football still a team game, and not just how great an indivisible is. ( 11 guys are on defense). Why it was a shame K Mack never got to play with the youngsters the Raiders brought in this year. Just would have freed him up to have a real special year. Sucks that they traded him without getting anything to help the 2018 team out .
  18. K Johnson was a legend in his own mind.( he wasn't Tampabay down fall, it was Gruden inability to draft a young Qb) . Sure probably the Raiders will never draft a talent like K Mack ( once in a lifetime talent) . One player doesn't make a defense , and you have to see the defense the Raiders eventually put out there. Will the defense be great with more parts ( ability to pay a lot more guys)than having one superstar defensive player getting Qb money . ( going to effect your ability to keep a lot of guys around him on defense.
  19. The rumor is the Jets did outbid the Bears. They just weren't trading him to Afc team.
  20. The one saving grace for the Raiders is that Raiders defensive coordinator Paul Guenther ( has total control over the defense) . He will draft the players on defense that fit his defense. Case in point see the players the Raiders drafted on defense this year.( DT Pj Hall, De Arden Key,DT Maurice Hurst , and CB Nick Nelson) . Gruden will pick the players on offense. ( thank God they have their Qb because he's terrible drafting Qb's). D James play made me sick today, and wasn't a surprise what K Mack is doing tonight.( just felt like a kick in the balls).
  21. The Raiders weren't ever going to trade K Mack to an Afc team- especially the Jets. It was pure fantasy he was ever going to be a Jet.
  22. No Reggie Mckenize ( who Gruden will blame) will take the fall no matter what happens with that trade.

    Mack traded to Bears

    What that tells you the Raiders are expecting the 2019 draft to be stronger than the 2020 draft.

    Mack traded to Bears

    J Gruden speciality is offense. Do you really think he cares about defense . If the Raiders signed Mack to that extension , you could kiss Amari Cooper gone.,. A Cooper is easily a 1,500 yard receiver this season. Raiders defense will be so much better this year than the 2017 version. ( even without their best player ) . Way better defensive coordinator . It's a shame we never got to see k Mack play in this new defense. she could easily put up 20 sacks this year. Arden Key winning D -ROY this year will go a long way in getting over this Mack trade.
