Oakland Raiders: 2017 Mock Draft

David Wilson – Apr 16, 2017

This years draft is interesting, because of both the quality of the current roster the depth of talent at a number of positions that Oakland needs to upgrade.

Beast Mode is Back

Andrew Flores – Apr 26, 2017

 After what seems like a lifetime of waiting everyone’s favorite running back is back in black. Just when we thought they wouldn’t pull it off, the Raiders got Beast Mode. It seems like some things are just meant to be. While Carr is the unquestioned face of the franchise, Beast Mode brings so much to this Raiders team. I won’t pull punches Marshawn Lynch is a tone-setter and his bone-crushing, no-nonsense run style is going to give the Raiders offense the knock-out power it will need. In a whirlwind of an offseason where the Patriots made move after move, the Raiders needed to make some moves. Trading for Beast Mode was a hell of a move.


Advisory: Traveling HOF Exhibit is Excellent, But....

Binta – Apr 13, 2017

On April 12, 2017, a couple of students walked with me to the museum that displayed the Canton Hall of Fame exhibit on the campus of Texas Southern University, in Houston, Texas. The display was excellent, but I was disappointed that no mention of the veterans who have been recognized on a HOF Honor Roll was included to encourage those at the host university.



Why Free Agents Will Want to Come Join the Raiders

Elias Trejo – Jan 9, 2017

Not too long ago Oakland was deemed the place where careers go to die. Whether you were a new draft pick or a veteran player it was likely you weren't going to play your best football in Oakland. Something about the environment there was toxic and players did everything they could to avoid it. Coaches advised players to avoid Oakland. Players advised players to avoid Oakland. Being a Raiders became just a place to go get your final paycheck.
