The Raiders coaches are about to get another up close and personal look at the next wave of NFL prospects. Several of their coaching staff have agreed to be in Indianapolis next week to help the pro prospects to prepare for the 2013 scouting combine.
Those coaches will be quarterbacks coach John "Flip" Defilippo, wide receivers coach Ted Gilmore, defensive backs coach Johnny Lynn, defensive coordinator Jason Tarver, scout Mickey Marvin, and defensive line coach Terrell Williams.
Having these coaches at the combine will give the Raiders an inside look at each of the prospects which will be invaluable in their scouting for the 2013 draft.
This isn't the first time the Raiders have gotten an up close and personal look at future NFL prospects. The entire Raiders staff also coached the North squad in the Senior Bowl this year.
I think it's safe to say no NFL coaching staff will be more prepared than the Raiders in their player evaluations this year. Which is good because few teams need to have a better draft than the Raiders this year.
