Next Years QB

So the time has come, as it has come every year since 2002, where my attention shifts from this year to next. It took longer than usual this year, but that is mostly due to the ineptitude of the rest of the AFC than the success of our Raiders.


Much of the talk this year has been about the most important position on the field, Quarterback. Whether you are team Pryor or Team McGloin you have to admit that both have shown flashes of greatness, mostly mediocrity, and some downright terrible play. Does this mean that either can’t be a viable QB? Not at all, frankly I like both of them. They both have had great attitudes and handled hard situations with dignity and deserve our upmost respect. That being said, I don’t think either of them is the QB that will lead us to the promise land.

With our draft pick rising with every passing week there are murmurs of us trying to get Bridgewater or Carr, but I will say patience is a virtue. With a pick that high in every round we can get a great value at QB in round 3. My choice would be to hold off and draft Zach Mettenberger. Most analysists had him going late in the first round before the ACL tear. He was never mobile so it shouldn’t hurt his game, just his development time table. Keep McGloin under center for the beginning of next year while Mettenberger heals. Let his decent play build his value and once anyone offers us a 2rd or 3rd pick, grab it and run, and I promise you, someone will.

Mettenberger has a monster arm and what most people where loving in his game this year was the huge strides he made in reading defenses. He is 6’5" and is hard to bring down like Big Ben.

Use the first two picks to draft an actual number one receiver like Mike Evans so that we have a jump ball king down the field and the second pick to choice the best DE left on the board at that time (fingers crossed for Vic Beasley).
