    So can we get another wide-out from 'Bama? This kid Ridley is good.

    I’d rather have Fitzpatrick.

    Me too, he and Conley could potentially be a great pair of corners...

    ...Pittsburgh letting their Offensive Coordinator walk and having their QB coach take over even if said OC led them to nine MORE points per game in his stead. Looks familiar.

    Air Force: Prep Assistant 2000
    Air Force: Varsity Assistant 2003-2005
    Air Force: RBs 2006
    Air Force: Run Game Coordinator/RBs 2007-2010

    Arkansas: ST Coordinator/RBs 2015
    IND: RBs 2016-2017
    Frank Gore rushed for 1000 yards, first Colts RB since 2007. First RB to hit 1000 at 33+ since 1984. Just missed it (961) in 2017, too. Colts ran a lot - 451 carries, and their RBs caught 59 passes in 2017 after running 409 times and having RBs catch more than 80 passes in 2016.

    Frank Smith
    Saints: 2010-2012 Offensive Assistant/Assistant OL
    Saints: 2013-2014 Offensive Assistant/OL
    Bears: 2015-2017 TEs
    The Bears have worn out their TEs (in a good way), throwing 87 passes to them in 2015, 100 in 2016, and 98 in 2017. That's close to the 110 TE targets Oakland had this year. No offense to Chicago, but the Raiders have better receiving options at TE in Cook and Walford.

    I'm seeing a pattern here - lots of targets, lots of weapons. Last season, Oakland's 552 targets were super top heavy, with 197 going to Coop and Crab, despite their fact that they both missed two games. Roberts saw another 65 targets, meaning that the top three WRs had half of all the targets despite their relative ineffectiveness at times. Oakland likes to hit their RBs out of the backfield, and that will continue.

    ^I was thinking the other day if Roberts even had a TD catch. He did... One.

    Plus catastrophic miscues. Penalties, drops, and fumbles. Yikes.

    Early mocks I've come across has Oakland drafting Barkley Penn State RB or Roquan Smith Georgia LB... I'm fine with either one but leaning more towards the latter. I'd rather have an O Lineman to be honest.

    I’m okay with Saquan. I’ve also seen Mike McGlinchey. That would be great.

    Peter King of SI just threw out the notion that Oakland could be in for Pittsburgh's Le'Veon Bell if he decides to go for free agency... Too many variables to consider. $21 mil asking price, attitude issues, mileage (high in the NFL for usage the last two seasons), injuries.

    I'd rather draft a potential replacement for Lynch if he was retained for another season.
