And, the Raiders. I think Josh Allen is the guy. Speculation all week it'll be a surprise and they sent scouts home so nothing got leaked, but losing Mack, this drops perfectly for them.

My thinking exactly.

Raiders should be Allen or White. Anyone else in the mix there?

If there is a "surprise," the only one that would do that is Hockenson, right?

Raiders provide first surprise. I like Ferrell....just didn't think Gruden liked him that much.

Cool. Talent keeps falling our way. As long as the QB desperation stays in the top ten we may have a great shot at some real talent.

Reach. But a good pick.  Now it gets interesting.

I LOVE Ferrell.   Forget the testing...or lack thereof...he's an incredible talent.  Sometimes teams and fans just need to ignore the underwear olympics and just draft football players.   Would have been a 1st rounder last year but wanted that National Championship - great football character.  Great pickup by Oakland even considering players still available.

Ferrell is a good football player. If he's their guy, no problem. What they will be scrutinized for is they probably could have gotten him by trading down a bit and getting extra picks. Maybe they knew another team was targeting him around their pick. We'll see how it works out.

That's the problem participant - nobody knows if a player truly would have been available later.  Sometimes if you like a guy you just need to take him

Totally agree. He's been the 2nd best edge in the draft all along. OAK got it right.

Bottom line is sometimes you don't dink around - you just grab your guy!
