I have nothing personal against DJ Hayden.  When he was drafted I thought "Who the fuck is this guy?".  My next thought was "What the fuck.  Reggie was suppose to fix our Draft Room".    Then I researched him and saw that he didn't play against any compitition in college and had the horrible injury and really got pissed off.  You don't roll the dice with first round picks.  Espcially when you start out with the 3rd pick in the draft.  

You don't draft non proven talent with horrible injury history in the 1st round period.  

Again not DJ's fault.

 

Agree 100%.  I reacted the same way when RM picked him.  I'm sure if a record of that draft is still on the forum here...it would bare me out.  Many experts questioned the pick too despite DJ being rated high as a CB....just too many red flags to take that high.  

But yet, he's shown enough promise to be our starter... outplay 2 veterans in Rogers and Brown and take their spot/s, outplay the next drafted, top prospect CB, of his draft class... and is a reason we haven't addressed the position...  even up to this date...

He may bomb this year, he may even play pretty damn well... but jeez louise, the sky isn't falling just yet folks, lol...  
He should not be in the starting lineup PERIOD.....

He needs to watch more film and learn how to defend his opponents routes.

He depends to much on his athleticism I think.

If he continues to be exposed like he is... He needs to be put down to the bottom of the depth chart..

It might humble his ass.

Its getting pretty old watching him not turn his head around and not putting his arms up to knock the

ball down.

Football 101

Lineup McGill with TJ and see what happens...

Won't hurt

You know it takes major film study to learn an opponents routes... Whats the point of that when its preseason and you have no clue who you will be playing against...  I mean sorry he didn't spend the whole offseason studying up on "Charles Johnson"... lol...

And again, you guys are basing this off 20 or so snaps at CB?  In the preseason?  Ok...  Have fun pulling your hair out...  lol....

Really you're talking about ONE game, because he didn't give up a catch in the Rams game.... amd gave up 3 for 35 (1TD on a perfect throw and catch) in the Vikings game....

The sky is falling, the sky is falling, lol...

And I think he led the team in pass deflections last year, in half a season...

Sounds to me that JDR is basically saying to the whole team, "I don't care who you think you are, you will need to compete and perform to get on this team." We don't know how Moore has looked or how hard he has worked since the hip operation.

I'm ok with this approach.

I'm leaving for a camping trip early on the 8th.  I'll be gone for about week, and I'll be way up in the mountains probably without internet or phone access.  If I do it on autodraft, will it automatically set up a Week 1 roster based on the order of the picks at each position?  If it will, I can live with that.   Grin

Does the 6th or 7th work better?

Yes, but I'll autodraft if it will also set my first roster.  I don't expect you guys to suffer for my fun.   Grin  (I can't change the date I leave.  Not my call.)

I think players who started on 3-13 teams probably need to get on the field and show their new coaches what they can do. The Raiders have been mum on Sio's injury, but by JDR's comments, it sounds like he believes that Sio needs to get on the field.

While Moore has been on the shelf, somebody else has been working every day to get better. Until Sio can show that he can out play him, then he'll find himself on the outside looking in.

Entering his fourth season as general manager, Reggie McKenzie is excited about what he considers to be his best roster since joining the Raiders.

By recent standards, expectations are high in Oakland. Derek Carr, Amari Cooper and Khalil Mack have given the Raiders a superstar appeal that has been lacking for a decade. That’s the good news.

The bad news (albeit not that bad) is the roster still appears to be a year away from breaking through the AFC West. If the Raiders are going to make waves in the division, it may well come down to McKenzie’s 2013 draft.




 
While some of the 2013 class is gone, the Raiders will lean heavily in 2015 on five third-year players – at key positions.

DJ Hayden: Reggie McKenzie said he would have drafted him third overall in 2013 (had he not traded the pick), but Hayden has looked more like a mid-round talent after two seasons. Finally healthy, Hayden has been cast into the startling lineup with just 10 NFL starts on his resume. If Hayden struggles, things could become complicated – the Raiders haven’t shown great depth at CB in preseason.

Menelik Watson: One of this year’s preseason surprises, Watson has held on to his job at right tackle despite the fact that his backup (Austin Howard) is on the second year of a 5 year, $30 million deal. Watson has been impressive as a run blocker and hasn’t stood out as a liability in pass protection.

Sio Moore (hip) was injured for most of training camp and the coaches may be getting impatient. Yesterday, Jack Del Rio said Moore is “competing to be a role player somewhere.” Most likely a motivational tactic from Del Rio? It will be a huge disappointment if Moore doesn’t emerge as a starter.

Latavius Murray: For all the conversation about Hayden, Murray might be the most important player on this list. By far the best running back on the roster, Murray could be in for a huge season if he can stay healthy. His combination of size, speed, and vision is something Raider fans should be excited about.

Mychal Rivera emerged as one of Derek Carr’s favorite targets down the stretch in 2014. The Raiders plan to incorporate more two tight end sets and the dual threat of Rivera and Clive Walford could be a nightmare for opposing coaches to defend.

Bump.

Just needs some writing and it's done. Or something along this theme. How about it Doc? Most people like it, I think.

I love it! Let's get it done!
