    I agree with this, take the trade and then package 12 and a second to move back into the top 10.

    Do you still take Nelson?
    I would probably take that trade and the Draft Nelson if he is still there at 12 or McGlinchey if he isn't.

    If we get Nelson fifth and Ronald Jones II at 40 we may have one of the most dangerous running offenses in the nfl

    And what evidence do you have to support this claim? You're just stating this because you have no intention of trying to prove your statement...

    That's a tough question for me. I definitely take Darnold over Nelson...maybe Rosen or Allen, but not Mayfield. The thing with QBs is they are so important to a team, but if you draft one high and they bust it can set a team back years. Yes, other positions can bust but the investment in time and development isn't the same.

    And Nelson can bust, but it isn't likely. Players that are considered "great" by the consensus of draft gurus almost always work out. There isn't a single draft expert that thinks Nelson has any real weaknesses.

    Darnold is the only player I would for sure take over Nelson. I "may" take Rosen, Allen or Chubb, but I'm not 100% sure. I'm glad I don't have to make the decision.

    I do know one thing...the one player in this draft I'd hate for the Raiders to draft at #10 is Nelson. I sure don't want us to have to play against him twice a year for the next 12-15 seasons.

    Simple reason, you can get a Hernandez, Daniels, Price, Wynn etc at 40 and a QB ideally at 5.

    Dont know how simple it can get as to why you dont take Nelson that high.

    He hasn't allowed his QB to be tounched in 2.5 years. I am unsure why you think he will struggle in pass protection.

    So you make a statement that he will struggle in pass protection, I give you stats that he was the 2nd best guard in the country for pressures allowed and your reply is "Ok we shall see." If you're going to call out a player at least back it up with some sort of evidence.

    Got to disagree. I get your logic about the G...and I really like every G you listed, a lot, I wish the T class was this loaded...but you lost me at the draft QB at 5. I love Nelson, but with Chubb, Barkley and Ward, I think any of those would be more improvement than risking it on 3rd or 4th best QB who will sit the bench 1-2 years....and whichever QB we have fallen for....we haven't shown to be a franchise to bring along drafted QBs now. Waste of a pick if we pick QB at 5. Draft someone that can produce now and live off the FA QBs while our D is still somewhat in tact.
