Are Raiders that bad at tight end? One NFL analyst disagrees

Thearon W. Henderson


John MiddleKauff doesn't think so. The former scout for the eagles RAVED about our two new tight ends.

Love the Nick Kasa & Mychal Rivera combo in the 6th for the Raiders. A coach told me they cldnt cover Rivera all Spring in OTA's

Rivera will play more of a Aaron Hernandez role (bad timing I know)... move him around, matchup vs LBs/SS... TUFF Cover

59m

But Kasa has BIG TIME upside - talking about a kid 6-6 270 4.70 who only played 1 year @ TE. Hes bigger than Gronk!

58m

Depending on QB obviously - I could see Rivera catching 40/50 balls.

53m

Rivera is another example of the 40... ran a 4.8 but got open vs Georgia and Florida. So what is more important to you?

52m

Paraphrasing Belichick - People don't come to see guys run, jump, & lift on Sunday - they come to watch them play football!

46m

Rivera is a just a savvy route runner, what VG during practice @ the SR bowl, while the Raiders had the chance to coach Kasa that wk

44m

this is true. After covering all the OTAs, Rivera's speed and route running got him open quite often.

29m

The are headed in the right direction, just need to stick behind Reggie, and obviously find the QB of the future

Sorry for the copy/paste job but i figured some of you might enjoy reading this as much as i did. Optimistic!
