@nationalmockdrafts Season Prediction for the Oakland Raiders! This is the time. The Raiders are finally back to being a Championship contending team. Almost all the pieces are there. Only concern may be the interior of the DL and the LB core, but this is an offensive team. Arguably one of the best, if not the best. Signing Cordarelle Patterson is not only good for the Raiders, but good for Patterson. With multiple targets on this roster Patterson may have to deal with weaker competition.
I was not a huge fan of the Raiders’ draft. If Gareon Conley is innocent, then they will get a steal with their first selection. I like the Melifonwu selection. A player with a lot of potential, give him time. Questionable reasoning for taking Eddie Vanderdoes so early. Durabiltiy issues had him as a late Day 3 selection. Like the David Sharpe selection. Brings depth to the great OL. Lee, Luani, Ware, Hood and Hester will all fight to make the roster.
I expect the Raiders to make a deeper run in the playoffs. If Derek Carr can remain healthy throughout the season, they can easily make it to the AFC Championship game. Beastmode will not have to be relied on heavily and I expect him to continue his strong running style. The Raiders are back.
