@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.
