The Paranoid Raiders Became a Punchline for Making Their NFL Draft Scouts Go Home

April 22, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO (95.7 The Game) -- There are some tweets that just make you go, "Wait. What?"

This is one of them...

The draft, in which the Raiders hold three first-round picks including the No. 4 overall selection, begins Thursday.

Gruden, who is in the second year of a 10-year, $100 million contract as the Raiders head coach, has full control of football personnel decisions.

The Raiders hired Mike Mayock as general manager this offseason. Mayock worked as NFL Network's lead draft analyst in recent years. Oakland fired former GM Reggie McKenzie in December.
