NFL Draft 2016 - What to Expect From the Oakland Raiders

David Wilson – Apr 26, 2016

As we get to within two days of the draft, with free agency having played itself out (very favourably for the Raiders), the Raider Nation is wondering what they are going to get over this three day event.




Oakland Raiders could shock us all come draft day

Andrew Flores – Apr 25, 2016

The draft is 3 days away and so far this year’s draft has been anything but predictable. Yet with the 14th overall pick the Raiders could very well shock us all. While general manager Reggie McKenzie has always taken the best player available, this draft is different as the Raiders have no obvious needs and could gamble on elite talents with injuries in order to continue building a legitimate contender. Talents like Myles Jack, Jaylon Smith, and Karl Joseph are all likely to slide come draft day, while no one knows how far they will slide. These players are all blue-chip talents, and while they won’t make an instant impact they very well could develop into all-pro talents at their positions. Further the precedent for the Raiders to shock us by going against the grain has already been set, after all Reggie did gamble on D.J. Hayden in 2013 and while that didn’t set the best precedent. This move established that Reggie isn’t afraid to go against the grain, with that said here is my mock draft.


This Is Where the Raiders Belong

Raul Martinez – Jan 6, 2016

When I started writing for this blog, I made myself a promise that I would not broach the subject of the Raiders potential relocation until the end of the season. I felt that I owed that to the Raiders who had finally seemed to put an exciting and competitive team on the field. I didn’t want to ruin what looked to be the most promising season in a decade, with an article about a subject that can only serve to divide the fan base and take away from the pleasure of seeing our beloved silver and black’s reemergence to relevance.

Grading the Oakland Raiders 2015 Draft Class

Wilson – Jan 1, 2016

As this season nears it’s end, we now have now had enough football played that we can make a reasonable attempt to grade the Raiders 2015 Draft class.



Oakland Raiders Keys to Success: Green Bay Packers

Andrew Flores – Dec 15, 2015

In what I can only describe as the miracle in Mile High, the Raiders beat the Broncos. Khalil Mack was a monster dominating Denver’s offensive line and sacking Osweiler 5 times. Mack was so dominant I’d imagine he has quickly become the source of Quarterbacks’ nightmares. This win was critical for the Raiders and could not have come at a better time. Hopefully the win has the Raiders confident heading into a must win game against Green Bay. This week’s game will be an all-out war as both teams fight for playoff positioning. The Raiders are fighting to keep playoff hopes alive; while the Packers are fighting to win their division. Green Bay will be confident coming off of a win, but their 9-4 record is a bit deceptive. The Packers have struggled all season and it is my belief that the loss of Jordy Nelson has been the biggest factor in the Packers’ offensive woes.
