2017 RAIDERS DRAFT – This is our pre-combine 2017 first round Raiders draft. Biggest needs for Oakland are an interior pass rusher followed closely by CB. The Raiders also have to address the inside linebacking corps and both offensive tackle spots.
There’s still a lot of speculation that Latavius Murray will leave without Oakland putting up much of a fight and we think that is in fact, largely speculation. While the Raiders will probably let Murray walk if another team extends a $6M+ contract, the Raiders will fight to keep him if the market comes in lower. The front office may not match entirely on salary but could structure a deal giving Murray a respectable salary laden with performance incentives.
For our part, we would love to see Latavius stay with Oakland. He’s been a good teammate, a true Raider, and the team just isn’t the same when he’s off the field. That’s not a knock on Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington but rather a deserving compliment to Murray.
