ALAMEDA –- Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie hoped to find a big-play receiver in the 2014 draft, but came up empty.
ALAMEDA -– Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie came into the 2014 NFL draft with seven selections. He left making eight picks. That’s far fewer than he’d hoped for.
ALAMEDA -– The Raiders pride themselves on employing players of character. They did so throughout free agency and the early portions of the 2014 NFL draft.
ALAMEDA -– The Raiders had a short list of players they would draft No. 5 overall. It varied some based upon the trade-down proposal, but there was one absolute exception to the rule.
So it’s agreed – the Raiders won Draft Day by picking someone all the punditomaniacs like. And that’s all that anyone can be sure of now.
