Bottom Line

I’ve only seen and heard about the Raiders being linked to Thomas, Cobb, Hudson and Suh in the media. Iupati and Hardy are my own thoughts but I know I’m not the only one thinking about that. Iupati and Hudson would give the Raiders the best offensive line in the NFL with what’s already there.

Cobb would give the Raiders a legitimate passing attack because he would be the Raiders’ legitimate No. 1 receiver. Hardy and Suh would give the Raiders a legitimate pass rush, making the Raiders a legitimate team. I’m sorry, I keep using the word legitimate because the words legitimate and Raiders have been an oxymoron since 2002.

But putting that together with a good draft would have the Raiders looking pretty good. Because McKenzie isn’t going get a bunch of backup players and try to make them into starters like last year. This year, he’s going to get some “real” players, choosing quality over quantity next week.

Just win baby!
