Raiders sign OLB Jelani Jenkins (1 year, $1 million): A+ Grade
Jelani Jenkins, also from the 2013 NFL Draft, has not been a bust. Chosen in the fourth round that year, Jenkins played well in large part for the Dolphins prior to this past season. He was atrocious in 2016, however.

Jenkins is the ideal candidate for a 1-year "prove it" contract. His 2016 struggles can be attributed to a knee injury he sustained in Week 1, prompting him to miss seven games. Jenkins had been out for just four contests prior to this past season, so odds are that he'll recover and remain healthy going forward. If so, he'll provide the Raiders with a much-needed boost in their poor linebacking corps.

This is the fifth A+ I've handed out this offseason, and it's well deserved. The Raiders made a great signing, as they're buying incredibly low on a solid player who figures to improve his upcoming year. Oakland is poised to make a run at Super Bowl LII, and Jenkins could end up being an important part of the team's defense during that push.

Text from someone I trust with the Dolphins.. (Jelani) Jenkins upside is pro bowl level but needs to stay out of the training room


That is best case scenario and I like it as a value signing. Think we still draft a backer and hope James and Ball can contribute.

I would also watch out for after draft cuts and waivers leading up to and in camp.

Our scouting has found and signed alot of guys this way. They don't all workout but we do find and deliver talent outside of the two main avenues.

This


LBs I could see being traded during draft or let go after...

Mychal Kendricks
Rey Maualuga
Paul Posluszny/Dan Skuta
David Harris


All those names make sense but not sure I'd want any of them over Riley. Not a hard no because obviously I can't really scout the guys but none of them move me enough to not sign Riley due to his play and acquaintance with the team and defense.


There goes the first name on that list.
