@Hansgrohe Since when is a 4th round pick supposed to fill a need? While i didnt necessarily agree with the pick, it shouldnt be too hard to understand. McGloin is in his final year, and backups command more more noney in free agency than the Raiders will be willing to spend. Instead, the Raiders will be paying Cook at a 4th round salary. He will have a year to develop before being asked to play the role of primary backup. His ceiling is high enough that if Carr goes down, the Raiders can still compete, and, he could serve as trade bait down the road as well. NOT a horrible pick.
Summary: Rahim Moore stood out in the 2009 campaign when he intercepted 10 passes and sort of coasted home the following year with only one. Still, that standout season showcased his ability to get his hands on the football which is a key element to the free safety position. He will benefit from being part of a soft crop of safeties, but has to muscle up if he is going to be an elite safety in the pros.
