Agreed. WR, RB, DT are the three major weaknesses on the team right now.

Watkins - WR (R1), Tuitt - DT (R2), Freeman - RB (R3) and throw in a LB, Interior OL, TE, and a few other players, and the Raiders will be looking pretty damn good on paper heading into training camp.

What about QB ? They need a QB to develop. If they are not picking a QB at 5, they would benefit from a trade down there.

Go QB in R3 instead if needed.

But honestly, one reason why Kaepernick has been successful with the 49ers is because he had talent in place. Alex Smith finally performed at a high level after that talent developed, and Kaepernick reaped the benefits.

Let Schaub be the unquestioned QB for the year and see how he performs with a good offensive core around him. Watkins, Jones, and Moore make up a SOLID WR unit. O-Line has improved. Their D will be much better with key vet additions.

If Schaub falls on his head, then enjoy having a high draft pick and select your QB in 2015.

Hate to say it, but I think the Raiders have a decent chance of being a surprise team and even winning the AFC West. McKenzie just needs to have a good draft.

No way. DEN, KC and SD, in that order, are much much better.

I don't see it. The Raiders can hang with them.

Not as long as Dennis Allen's their HC. They can sign as many people as they want they still won't crack 500
If Schaub goes back to his pre-2013 self they should be much better. At least they might look like an actual NFL team for once.
Raiders will be better, but no way they compete for the West. Their roster pickups have been OK, but most of those guys are on the tail end of their career. So they're gonna be screwed again in 2 years.
I can't wait to beat the s**t out of the Raiders this year even with all their new additions
They will be better BUT not enough to compete in their division.

Broncos really improved. The Chiefs will e better and Chargers are a question mark as always.

IMO, the wars are still won in the trenches and they need to rebuild them for the future.

We made a great move by getting Davis & Iupati to fix out line. That will help any QB & running game.
They are turning into the Washington Redskins of old. The new "Over the Hill" gang with all these signings on the down hill side of their careers.
Do they have any worthwhile CB worth trading low round picks for?

They DEFINITLY need more picks.

What are you basing Allen ineffectiveness as a coach on ? He has had little to nothing to work with. Has been in a tough situation since being hired and IMO it's hard to gauge what kind of a job he has done to date.

All those older players they've signed are 1-2 year deals save for MJD. Unlike the Skins who would sign guys to big money multi year deals. Also keep in mind they needed to spend 89% of their available cap space (60 mill) and are not an attractive landing spot for the bigger named (and younger) free agents.

Have you watched a lot of raider games under allen? He's a horrible decision maker on the sideline. I'm not here to say they can't go .500 or better under him, but if you're asking what is the basis of his ineffectiveness, it's clearly the proof of how he's operated on gameday. Reminds me of Nolan, the way he does s**t that makes you say "WTF .
