I am sad about this, probably my favorite analyst, especially at draft time.
mayock is the best draft "expert"
sad to see him go but will be interesting to see how he does running a team. joke's on whoever hires mel kiper
Yep the draft wont be same without him
Figured he would eventually take chance as GM and given his relationship with Gruden it makes sense
With how important the draft will be for Raiders in next few years he is exactly the type of man they need
Raiders really gonna be a reality TV show team.
I think Daniel Jeremiah is the guy I would hire to run my team if I was picking out of network guys.
Jeremiah or Louis Riddick. Both former personnel guys but kind of wonder why they haven't gotten back into the league. They are both young.
Raiders on Hard Knocks needs to happen.
No idea how he'll be as a GM, especially with Gruden in charge, but I'm going to miss his draft coverage. DJ should take over that role as the main draft analyst and do just fine.
Didn't Riddick kind of sound off when the niners took Lynch instead of him as gm?
People actually watch drafts these days?
This would normally be good but with the amount of money and power Gruden now has i'm not so sure.
The NFL draft did better ratings than the Stanley Cup Finals last year and did great ratings. So yes, people are watching.
DJ has apparently had chances to be in the mix for jobs but turned them down. I think he'll get a chance eventually.
Yeah, I’m optimistic about this but can’t go anywhere but up.
Raiders have 3 first rounders this year, back to the drawing board.
Everything does better than the NHL. Hockey is a niche, regional, class based sport. The winter olympics always draw far worse than the summer games. So I mean thats not earth shattering.
Drafting hasn't really been a strong area for Gruden so bringing in Mayock in a year like this could be really good for the Raiders if he's allowed to do his job without interference.
Which is specifically why Mayock has been brought in to do.
Also, he can upgrade the personnel on the team too..which player can fit in to which position.
This is essentially if a team took a chance and hired Pierre McGuire their GM in the NHL.
Mayock knows his stuff to a pretty damn high degree so i can see why one would take the gamble. The problem becomes more apparent when you realize this was a Gruden hire so it just reeks of being a giant meme like the rest of that franchise.
He's going to strictly run the drafts for them, I doubt he';ll make a trade without Grudens consent.
GM: Gruden has 'final say' in Raiders' decisions
No wacky Raiders drafts in the future?
