Reggie McKenzie says the Raiders need to focus on getting their draft board right

raidersPeople can talk trash all they want about Reggie McKenzie as the Raiders general manager, but he has done a pretty impressive job.  Last year the team drafted Derek Carr, and Khalil Mack, and the year before that the team drafted Latavius Murray, who looked like the best running back on their roster.  Well McKenzie talked about the draft today on Sirius XM Radio and he said they will work hard to ensure their draft boards are right.

“You’re talking about seven picks,” McKenzie said Wednesday in an interview with SiriusXM NFL radio. “We feel like we need more than seven players, so we’re going to set this draft board right and pick the best player at that particular time.”

“If I felt like we just needed three players, then I would say I have an idea of the three (positions) I want. Not at this point. We want to get the best players we can and give our coaching staff and other guys in that locker room the best playmakers possible. … The bottom line is that you want set the draft board and trust it.”
