The Oakland Raiders have been quite the disappointment this season, and on Sunday, they laid an egg against the Buffalo Bills. With ten days rest, and coming off a huge divisional victory against the Kansas City Chiefs, many expected the Silver and Black to get their season off the rails. Instead, they lost to another team in front of them in the playoff race, and it looks like they will once again be picking high in the first round.
With that pick, the Raiders should look to bring in more defensive back help, which has been the theme of their first rounds the last few years. Tarvarus McFadden is a good-looking cornerback from Florida State and would slide in with 2017 first rounder Gareon Conley to give the Raiders a solid, young cornerback tandem. Of course, that all depends on whether Conley can ever get himself healthy enough to play, which is looking like a worrisome situation at this point.
Oakland may go on a run late in the season, but the schedule suggests otherwise. Moving to a different offensive coordinator has really stunted the growth of this offense, which is built to win now. Derek Carr is still young and may have his best football still ahead of him, but this season has been a serious letdown for the fan base as we enter Week 9.
