GM McKenzie addressing the media today

By Steve Corkran
Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013 at 1:37 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie is scheduled to hold a news conference today in Alameda to address the NFL draft, which begins Thursday and runs through Saturday. The Raiders hold the No. 3 pick in the draft, and McKenzie certainly will shed some insight into whether the Raiders intend to keep that pick or trade down in an attempt to acquire more picks.
Soon after the news conference, we will provide some stories on what McKenzie said, what it means and where the Raiders stand moving forward.
We’ll also post the entire transcript from the question-and-answer sessions with Bay Area media. There also will be Tweets from the news conference, so follow @corkonthenfl and @jerrymcd

    1- DT Star
    3- DE C Lemonier
    4- DE B Jenkins
    6- TE J Fauria

    Mock draft and wishlist.
    —————————

    I’ve seen you post this a couple times. I agree 100%. If we don’t get Star though, I wouldn’t mind Fisher, Jordan, or a trade down resulting in Warmack and a second rounder. Any of those with the first pick, combined with the rest of your suggestions would be one hell of a draft for us!
    $$$$$$$$

    Fisher and Trade down are good options, but I don’t get the hype about Jordan and Ansah.
    Lemonier is a freakish athlete with similar college production.

    Didn’t Mayock have us taking Bruce the workout warrior for Tackle in the first round when we ended up taking him in the 4th round?

    Suh? How’s detroits defense? Their record?

    U made my point for me.

    U and b@uce and the other igoramuses can think a fat body in the middle will miraculously do something but real football minds know differently.

    I wish we can trade down to draft DE D Jones and NT J Hankins.

    LDE: Jones
    DT: Hankins
    DT: Houston
    RDE: C Lemonier

    —-

    I like where your heads at, just he players are off IMHOFO..
    ******************

    I like it…Lemonier will have to gain some weight but he perfect as a RDE

    D Jones would be excellent on the strong side as he can play the run and also rush the passer some

    Hankins is a run stuffer and Houston is really a 3 tech guy
    $$$$$$$$$$$!

    Exactly.
    Lemonier is bigger than Jordan at 255 so he only had to gain 10+ pounds. No problem.

    One thing that RM has done that Al never did was castrate the media. Reggie has the local media trained. No criticism, blame everything on the old regime and no one questioning any of Reggie’s decisions. And all it took was a better buffet table and letting the press out of the pre-season box to watch practice………And getting rid of Herrera.

    Who knew?

  • angry little man

    Almost every GM in the league wanted Peyton Manning, it just so happend that John Elway got him.

    So it dosent take a genuis to say you want Peyton Manning on your team. Oh and by the way Tebow has a better playoff record in Denver then Peyton Manning does. Peyton Manning has 8 opening playoff losses in his career, which is a NFL record. His best days are behind him , you can quote me on that.

    On the possibility of trading down: I hope RM dosent trade down just for the sake of trading down, this team needs players that is obvious but this team also needs good players , which we dont have a lot of.

    I would keep the pick and draft Floyd or Star, unless another team gives us a deal we cant refuse.

    by Big Frank 12:33 PM

    I guess Cork doesn’t like the idea of Houston playing 3-tech, yet he suggests that if we take a DT at #3 it should be Floyd. This makes no sense to me what-so-ever.

    Any ody else a lil weary of dion jordan? I mean he looks good and conbine was cool. Decent numbers in college. A lot of ppl comparing him to aldon smith. When i see jordan i see a guy who could end up being like aldon smith, but at 6’6″ 239 with a bad shoulder, not being able to show if he is ben strong, could just the same be aaron maybin. It doesnt help me, actually it bothers me even more, how my cousin who goes to oregon isnt sure about jordan in the top 5.

    Honestly, picking at 3 I would only be comfortable taking Star or Fisher. Other than that I take the best trade down offer I can get.
