Grueling Truth

● By Samuel Teets
The Las Vegas Raiders are entering a pivotal year for their current regime. Jon Gruden is in his fourth season with the organization and hasn’t produced a winning record yet. He and General Manager Mike Mayock haven’t performed well in the draft either. Another year of draft day failure should shut the door on Gruden’s second stint with the silver and black. Since Gruden returned to the Raiders in 2018, he’s used 25 draft picks and six first-round selections. The team only added one Pro Bowler (Josh Jacobs) in that haul and recently parted ways with 2018 mid-round selections Maurice Hurst Jr. and Arden Key. Lynn Bowden Jr., P.J. Hall, and Johnny Townsend also aren’t on the team anymore despite two of those players being Day 2 selections.
