Thread: 2020 Draft Needs

    2020 Draft Needs

    Since it's slow for another month when camp starts, what do you see as 2020 draft needs? Gruden keeps praising Hudson, and he hasn't slowed down. Interior lineman last until their mid 30s. I see Hudson getting a new 3-4 year to wear silver and black in his mid 30s. I guess could see a mid rounder used on backup or swing interior lineman...here is my list of potential targets in 2020

    WR- AB and Tyrell should be around for awhile, but Ryan Grant and Hunter are unknowns. You would think Gruden would want to build an offense juggernaut, so another stud WR in the 1st is a strong possibility. Doss has potential but he is an UDFA. NFL is about the passing game, Gruden glory days had Rice, Brown, Joey Porter tearing it up
    DE/Edge- Ferrell should hold down one spot as a long time starter. Hopefully Key develop into a 3rd down specialist, and Mad Max/Bell are wild cards. Could use a blue chip across from Ferrell until we don't suck rushing the passer
    LB- Vontaze and Marshall could be stopgaps. Vontaze is a baller, but he has so many concussion. One more and his career could be done, Marshall is also a question mark? Whitehead is an okay starter. We have young depth who I think can emerge (might be a homer)in Morrow, Lee, Cabinda, Coney. see who can step up and showcase they need to be on the field
    G- Richie more of a stop gap. Jackson is making alot, and a Reggie guy who is coming off a down year. I could see Gruden revamping this unit next year in free agency/3rd round
    TE- Waller and Moreau both have potential, but both unknown. Could be a need if one doesn't emerge
    CB- really like Conely as CB1, Joyner looks to be the slot. Who is going to the step up as CB2 Worley, Nelson, or Mullens. I'm confident one of the them emerges so this position down the list
    S- if Joyner plays more slot, Joseph is in a make or break year. I like Joseph and hope he tears it up, but we did decline his option. Harris, Riley, and Richards more of depth pieces. Could be a need if Joseph walks, would be nice to have a long term stud next to our stud Rookie
    so before camps, my draft position targets in 2020 draft (obviously subject to change based on camp&season)

    1- WR

    1- DE/EDGE

    3- G

    3- LB

    As much as I like Grant Delpit from LSU, I can't see Gruden taking a safety in back to back years and the Raiders talking one high 4/5 years.

    Unless there is a off the charts good WR, I don't see the Raiders going WR in the first. I think depending how the season shakes out we go D line/linebacker possible o line. in the first. Hopefully Mike can wheel and deal for more picks again.

    LB - We again patched this group with vets and hope an UDFA pans out, will be a need again
    DE - Well said, Ferrell is one end and well the other needs an upgrade as well, Key does not look like an every down DE, Mayowa, Mauro are this year's Frostee Rucker.
    OG - Definitely need an LG, Incognito is just a patch.

    Thankfully you are not pulling the trigger on decision with the raiders. We just drafted a RB in the first round and Carr isn't going anywhere unless he has a career ending injury.

    I'm glad you have so much faith and confidence in Carr. Unfortunately, I don't share that confidence. This is a make or break year for DC, and if he doesn't perform well or up to expectations, he will almost certainly be gone - career ending injury or not.

    As for RB, I'm well aware that we drafted Jacobs. I really like Richard. Hope CW3 is the real deal and possible bellcow. Don't like Wahington. Muscle Hamster isn't for long. So, I'm not satisfied with a backfield of just Jacobs and Richard if CW3 doesn't pan out. Think RB will be an area of need in 2020.

    All we have is BUST Ferrell.
