Wait ... You mean they can afford to pay a veteran DE?

Long term? :shock: :)


:lol:

Think Raiders still have about 30M or so in cap inclusive of draft pick monies, so they can choose to take on Clark's contract if they wish too. Grucock have shown that they are not averse to paying monies to players not named Mack.

Not arguing Clark is close to Mack, but the difference off the field would be
a) Mack + 2020 2nd vs Clark + #27 + 20 1st + 20 3rd (downgrading #4 to #21, but an available Mack would have meant a few more wins, so offsetting the picks)
a) 3-5M savings in cap

Wonder how Clark compares to the rookie pass rushers?

There can be worse ways to get a pass rusher I guess, but all that said, I don't believe the Raiders would be willing to trade #4 for Clark + 21st (believe that trade values Clark as a #16)

For those interested in easy money:

There are win total over/under lines up to 6.5 (under -120) for Oakland right now.
Just cash in, baby.

RAIDERS Front Office came out with a bold statement before tonight's draft:


" Watch out at pick #4, we're going to Shock the world."

MY guess..Quarterback..Dwayne Haskins.

My guess - it will be a lucid smart pick

I guess nobody wanted to trade up with the raiders?

I think there were some better prospects but I don't think it's a huge reach or a terrible pick. I'm guessing they went with Ferrel over Allen is due to him being better at setting the edge against the run

The thing about the Clelin pick is that OAK set themselves up to be blow our minds great but it turns out they are settling for pretty good.

I think we did well tonight overall. Really glad we didn’t take a QB. Now either Carr will take the next step (doubtful) or he will fall on his face and we will be in position to take one of the excellent 2020 QB’s.

Yeah Raiders did alright. I honestly thought they would screw up big but they didn't
