AP, BEAST MODE, OR BLOUNT?

None, best o-line in the AFC, I could get 4 ypc running behind them (though I probably wouldn't survive the 1st Quarter).
No point wasting money on expensive over the hill backs, especially one trick ponies like those three. Plenty to be had in the draft.

Agreed although I might take a flier on beast mode if they strike out on draft day

I wish Joe mixon was in the mix but not a chance as the Raiders don't entertain anyone with a domestic violence history.

AP. He will still work his butt off, because he's a sociopath. 

Beast Mode is now in retirement mode, I don't think he'll give you much effort.

Blount is so darn slow, and he might not jibe outside of New England.

I'm a big Lynch fan so I'd like to see him back for 1 year.

If I were the Raiders...I would draft Joe Mixon with their 2nd round pick.

Not a chance. Raiders will never sign anyone accused of DV, period.

They had an interview with Joe Mixon. Says "he's a good kid" and they'll do the necessary research to find out what happened. He's also a guy who isn't quick to judge after one mistake. Especially for the young athletes coming out of college. I think they do grab Joe Mixon though, in the second rd if he's still available. Possibly third.

mixon would be a great fit but I thought they stayed away from anyone with a DV rap sheet do to something that happened to Biletnikoff's daughter. I've been wrong before like when I fat fingered the duplicate post
