No Mayock this draft season (Raiders New GM)


Recommended Posts

For those interested in the watching the draft leadup, this is big news. Mayock is my favorite to listen to on the big tv channels, and him and Rich Eisen always seem to have fun together. Congrats on his GM job, but I'm going to miss listening to him for sure.

I think this is a good move, I like him as a draft analyst too....and good for Mayock putting his money where his mouth is(unlike some draft commentators who have had a spat with this team in the past, yet made no real move to actually run a team).

"Who the hell" are you talking about, anyway? :lol:

Who will get angry at an orangutan on national tv now? He's the primary reason I switched  to watching the draft on NFL Network.

I agree. And as a hardcore draftnik, and a person who was also annoyed with the simian, I am anxious to see who fills his chair

Personally, I am glad to see Mayock go! That blowhard is nowhere near as good an analyst as Mel Kiper Jr. and his hair doesn't even come close to greatness of best draft guru in the business!

Now that is one good looking draft guru!

 

(of course this whole post is sarcasm best of luck in Oakland Mr. Mayock)

Happy for him. I think it’s a good fit. First you have someone who a lot of people respect that really has a history with Gruden (watched his presser), which kinda debunks all these rumors about how football people don’t like Gruden. Also pretty much confirms that Mayock was the best of all the so called draft guru’s. It’s funny because the other draft analysts are the ones bashing the hire out of pure jealousy. He’s been offered a job or two in the past. What experience did John Lynch have when the 49ers picked him?

 

I’d expect Lance Zerlein to become the guy. He already does all of the prospect write ups on NFL.com. No one would have the chemistry Mayock had with Rich Eisen though. I wonder if he’ll bring anyone over with him. Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks are both former pro scouts and Brooks played in the league.

Yeah I'm interested to see how this goes.

 

Everyone likes to give their mock, and their opinion on the draft, and nobody is ever right.

 

I'm always like "Well why aren't you getting paid to draft for an NFL team?" and now one of the most famous draft people is actually doing it.

Unless they can somehow get Greg Cosell to do it, I agree with you there.

I don't know how I feel about Cosell. I can't say I follow him a ton but the times I have, I think I've been split on his opinions. I guess I probably wouldn't hate it if he were to take Mayock's old gig.

    • Good lord. I simply posted an article from rotoworld. If you don’t like it then let them know you disagree with the people who are usually correct with the info they receive. I wasn’t aware I would be told I was wrong for posting an article from a highly reputable site. You seriously need to relax. 
    • Eh maybe but I think it was more of let’s see how the draft shakes out and who is cut yet to make room to sign the rookies they picked. There’s still teams that have to cut some players just to get under the cap once the rookies sign. 
    • Dude I agree, but our base kinda concept is T2 with their personnel I think.  They play a variety of zones and trade off a lot.  They get lost in the secondary.  It’s actually complex as hell.   It’s possible Rock and Blackmon are gonna click as they learn the system, but it’s also possible IMO they continue to play replacement level foot ball.  Rock has issues but on many of his plays he gets NO help from the safeties. they want these guys to play downhill like T2, but they have to show they can cover first.  It might work and be exciting as hell.                       I am in lockstep with the Walker thing.  That’s why you never seem to know wth this team is trying to do well with SCHEME AND PERSONNEL.   sorry for yelling.  I don’t think our ideas about this team are really very different.     Franks a pretty good coach man.
    • Wentz wasn't my favourite option when we got him but watching some of his games from his rookie and 2nd year the guy has magic, can't wait.
