Only 1 Elite Prospect in 2014 Draft !!!!!!!!

Hello fellow Raiders the draft is almost upon us and I decided to do a FanPost. I have an opinion that I know many will disagree with, but here it goes anyway. There is only 1 Elite Talent in this Draft and it is Clowney. I know he won’t be there when we pick so that dream is dead but let me address the other so called elite prospects.

I personally don’t see the need for a WR in this draft everyone says we need a True #1 WR I’m here to say we may already have one but due to so iffy QB play they were unable to shine. Let us check the stats of our current WR

Now I know James Jones wasn’t on our team last year but I posted them just to show what we have and also there may be an Ausberry sighting. Now the numbers put up by our returning WR aren’t great but not too shabby either when you consider how BAD QB play was at times last year. We have a Vet QB who could return to a decent form and we still have 3 young WR who contributed last year. Everyone seems to think Watkins would come in and be the man HA Nope not gonna happen the most dominate Rookie season ever was from Randy Moss even the great Megatron had a so so season (and yes I know he was their only target) need proof check this out here.

I don’t see the point of drafting a tackle early when we have Penn, McCants, and Watson I know Penn had a bad year but he is a stop gap anyways McCants played well when given the chance and we need to find out about Watson health willing. Why keep drafting what we already have if you won’t give them a chance to develop?

No QB is worth a top 10 pick in my opinion and the 1st QB for me would be Bridgewater but I honestly don’t want a QB in the 1st I would even be fine with not drafting a QB at all if we happen to suck bad enough this year we will have a new coach possibly GM and a new QB for sure.

A lot of people follow what has been said by so called experts and scouts I’m not paid to do what they do but no one is perfect. People have all of a sudden changed their minds on TB, Manziel, Robinson, Bortles and now I even have begun to see people boosting up Tom Savage like he has been a great QB in college. The one thing I hate is we hear about is potential all the time and no one wants a player who is basically a finished product that is stupid Potential get’s you fired Players keep you employed.

To everyone out there new is not always better and with that I say we focus strictly on defense in this draft now if an offensive player is there that is just too good to be true take him but we are young on offense and need to groom our D for the eventual retirement or just departure of the vets we have signed.

I had a whole lot more to say but I cut it short I think I made all the points I needed too if not we can get to it in the comment section.
