Arnold’s 6.65 3-cone time removed my draft block. So many players did not run the 3-cone or short shuttle at the combine, why was that this year?
Everybody is leery of huge jumps in the 40 but no one is questioning a 6.65 3-cone? Normalizing the time for his 3-cone puts him at ~6.8. Do you still feel okay about him with a 6.8 3-cone and a short shuttle that was so bad that no one is posting it?

How will Arnold fare against 4.21 Xavier Worthy when Mahomes is chucking the ball?
 
If you have a second round grade on a guy, you don't take him at 13. Period.

Ignoring talent for need is how bad teams stay bad. Someone pointed out the year we took Mack the Rams to Aaron Donald. They already had Michael Brockers and another studly DT.

Thing is, the Raiders have actual holes at T and CB and G. I don't take a G at 13.

Here's what I'd like to see: top four QBs are gone, but other teams desperate for a QB are calling. Trade down, acquire picks. Trade back up to grab a player you see is falling, or build a roster in a draft that is deep.
Every one of the top 6 QBs is top-16 on the big board.

Trading down to let someone else take a QB when you have Minshew and AO'C is how the Raiders stay the Raiders.

No! How the Raiders stay the Raiders is by reaching for players year in and year out. Draft good players period and stick to your board.

Stick to whose board? If they take a player at a certain spot I’m assuming it’s because that’s where they valued him. Getting starters at key positions is starting to get underrated. I assume most people would draft Phillip Rivers over Will Shields 10 out of 10.

Build a better board then. Thats probably why we are on our 4th GM in 8 years.
 
Hopefully all the guys who had Leatherwood above Darrisaw or Ruggs above Lamb or Arnette above anyone are fuckin gone.
One would hope! We’d be in a better place had we just kept Reggie..
