I'll give it a B. I like that we addressed some offensive positions. Sio Moore, that guy will be brilliant in S&B. And the Murray pick, excites me.

I really like the Rivera pick because of his sister


But in all seriousness, I think we have done really well so far. My favorite pick in the draft was Sio Moore. I expect him to have an impact rushing the passer.

A from a Broncos fan. The Raiders had a great draft imo. Moore and Watson were great value and both have a ton of upside. Hayden was my number 1 corner in the draft. Wilson has potential and worth a flier in the 4th. Kasa and Murray were both prospects I liked later in the draft too.

C.

Started good, but never helped our pass rush. Like the Wilson pick up in the 4th and Hayden in the first.

LOVED 4 out of the picks, so I gave it a B.

-I loved the first two picks. Filled needs and weren't just need based because both these guys (Hayden and Watson) have serious potential and talent.

-Sio Moore looks like an absolute beast. Just watched his game films against 3 teams and he gives it his all every play. It's gonna be fun rooting for this guy. He's fast too, and looks like a really good tackler. I can see why BP needed to change his pants after we drafed him.

-Not a huge fan of the Wilson pick. Could've gotten a guard here or a DT. Not a terrible pick by any means, and should be a good competition for the backup spot.

-Both TE's look really good to me. Rivera looks like a really good pass catching threat (even better than Myers) and probably can block better too. The other TE looks HUGE and should help dMac out a ton. Both these guys should make the team and I expect Gordon to be released if he hasn't been already.

-Murray looks decent. Follows his blockers really well with good speed. The only thing is that he doesn't look like a guy that can make you miss. He's not going to make plays by himself but hey that's probably why he's being drafted in the late rounds.

-McGhee looks like a nice run stuffer. Love the pick.

-Butler looks big and runs good routes. I would like to see some more YAC but atleast he seems to have good hands. It's a shame he never can break any tackles.

-Finally, David Bass (DE) looks like he has potential

Overall, I'm happy with this draft, and offseason in general so far.

In terms of the offseason as a whole, I'd give Reggie a B+

Only con is that we waited too long to address the DL.

Give it a B. Love Hayden, Moore, Kasa & Murray. Like Watson and Butler and OK with the rest.

Hayden, Kasa & Moore will will compete for a starting job right away. Watson has a good chance to compete at RT, but is still very raw.

B, would have been an A if we didn't draft Kevin Kolb 2.0. Brian Schwenke would have been awesome if we didn't trade down.

With picking up the DE in the 7th I will jump to a C+. 3 years from now we will be looking at an A Cool Laughing

TE Mychal Rivera is a great late pick up

Round 1: DJ Hayden, CB - B - Shut down corner if completely healthy. However, can't ignore the freaky injury as a potential problem. Could move to an A or become a terrible choice. I'm giving it a solid B for now, as I'm trusting the medical reports.

Round 2: Menelik Watson, RT - B - RT has been a horrible black hole for the Raiders. Menelik has huge athletic gifts, but is relatively inexperienced. Fortunately he's coming into a good situation with Sporano as his position coach.

Round 3: Sio Moore, OLB - A - Great value, great player. Does everything well and plays with an attitude. Going to be a really good fixture for the Raiders

Round 4: Tyler Wilson, QB - C -Good value, but we could've added a starter somewhere as their was alot of talent here. I'm not convinced that Wilson is the next great QB, so I'm not thrilled with the selection.

Round 6: Nick Kasa, TE - B+ - Love this kid and feel like he could be a really good TE for us. Blocks really well and can stretch the field. 6th round starter for the Raiders, gotta love it.

Latavius Murray, RB - B - Great value in the 6th round, but I'm not overly convinced that he's the future as a 6'3ish RB that isn't 260lbs (for the inevitable Brandon Jacobs is 6'3 comment)

Mychal Rivera, TE - D- - Hate this pick. Good hands, but a small and slow TE is not exciting to me. Especially after selecting Nick Kasa earlier.

Stacy McGee, DT - F- - Hate this pick even more than the last one. Yes we needed D-line talent but McGee is not the answer and has WAY too much baggage. Runs counter to McKenzie's choir boy and locker room guys theme

Round 7: Brice Butler, WR - B - Seems like a really good prospect with speed, height and ball skills. Definitely worth a 7th round for me.

David Bass, DE - A- - Small school pass rusher w/ ridiculous production. Great measurables, Al would be so proud. Absolutely love him as a 7th rounder.

Overall I give it a really solid B

I gave a C since I have no idea if any of these guys will turn into impact players or at least solid, long-term starters.

What I do like is that our staff stuck to BPA types who fit a specific mold of smart, disciplined, hard working football players and the two top picks were underdog/outside the box types. This shows me some front office unity, vision and I can finally see the type of team they're really trying to build here, and that excites me and will keep my interest sparked for this season, regardless of our record.

I gave this draft a B since we picked up a second TE when we could have picked up Rambo and gotten a S prospect. Evil or Very Mad
