How Mike Mayock can give Raiders draft advantage

This tweet by Mike Lombardi –a longtime former front-office assistant to Al Davis – got me thinking.

Good part about not moving the draft, it will help cut down on bias, bad part, too many players are missing critical data. Tape analysis will rule the draft--which might be a good thing.

I’m thinking that Lombardi is right. The circumstances of next month’s NFL draft will change because of the coronavirus crisis. The ability for due diligence has been lost.

The draft is going to come down to the basics – game film.
