Mayock is an Emmy nominated broadcaster who spent several seasons alongside raiders Coach Jon Gruden as ESPN analysts. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the hiring hadn't been announced. Jon Gruden doesn't have a great track record as a personnel chief and the Raiders have pivotal personnel decisions coming in the months ahead.
The team originally had one first-round draft pick.
However, Mayock has never had front office experience in the National Football League, but did interview with Al Davis for the same position years ago. I've spent an terrible lot of time breaking those players down.
"The last 15 years, I think I've tried to be the GM for all 32 teams", said Mayock at the press conference. "I have watched the last eight game tapes just trying to be prepared for my interview and working with the Raiders".
"I'll be sitting down with every position coach. I didn't know in what role. when the opportunity came to talk with Mike this time around, he was one of the first people we wanted to talk to, and he hit it out of the park". Once they have the guys they want to keep/plan on utilizing in their future plans, they need to be smart with their money heading into free agency. He has to find proper scheme fits and players whom members of Gruden's staff can develop into quality professionals.
The Raiders fired general manager Reggie McKenzie in early December.
With the mind of Mike Mayock and his eye for talent, this is going to be a huge asset for the Raiders because it allows him to evaluate the incoming talent and what is left when the Raiders are on the clock to determine if they should grab someone, trade it for a play, or even a later pick.
Gruden said his relationship with Mayock dates back to 1995 when he was offensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles, and that the two have met often over the years and discussed the possibility of joining forces. "I have that. I have a lot of guys I respect, but the most important thing is to respect the guys who are here first".
