Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged-in Las Vegas Raiders fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, more than three-fourths (i.e. 79 percent) of responding Raiders fans are confident the team is headed in the right direction.

That level of confidence in the team comes shortly after the Raiders welcomed in their 2021 NFL Draft class. A majority of Raiders fans gave the team either an A or B grade on the draft.

While Raiders fans are clearly happy with the team’s draft, fans around the league think another team did even better — 37 percent of fans said the Chicago Bears were the biggest winners of the draft. Much of that support is likely due to the Bears trading up to draft quarterback Justin Fields.

After the Bears, 17 percent of fans said the Cleveland Browns had the best draft followed by 16 percent who picked the New York Jets.

On the other end of the spectrum, nearly a third of fans said the Houston Texans had the worst 2021 NFL Draft. They were followed by the 22 percent that picked the Green Bay Packers and 21 percent who think the Raiders were the worst.
