Interesting quotes from Raiders rookie minicamp media session

Thearon W. Henderson



Raiders.com published a series of "Media Sessions" with most of our drafted rookies, and here are some blurbs that stood out to me (weirdly, they were on offense):

Mychal Rivera

Q: How does your game translate from college to the pros?

Rivera: In college, I played a lot of different positions. I played fullback. I played wide receiver and I’d go in-line tight end. The Raiders are doing the same thing with me here and moving me all around and I’m having a lot of fun doing all the versatile stuff that I always do.

Aaron Hernandez anyone?

Latavius Murray

Q: How would you describe your style as a runner? Are you different than Darren [McFadden] or are there some similarities in your style?

Murray: Well, I think with just my size and speed, we have some similarities, but, for me, I just try to run downhill, get tough yards with my size and when it’s time to get outside, use my speed if I can.

So basically, the same.

Tyler Wilson

Q: You’ve seen the playbook, how does it compare with what you have done in the past?

Wilson: We were very much pro-style at Arkansas, but there’s three or four different offenses in the NFL and we were kind of the other side of the West Coast. We were very much not West Coast at Arkansas. So, we were doing multiple formations, multiple sets, motions and a lot of language in the huddle, but it was a completely different set of verbiage, so a lot that I’m learning there.

This one was the big one. West Coast Offense again? Seems well suited for Flynn.
