I wonder if at least a little bit of this had to do with the off-field issues as much as the on-field failures of several of his draft picks

Gruden had the final say on personnel decisions so in theory Mayock could hide behind that and say "hey, every one of our early round busts? That was the racist, sexist and homophobic Chucky doll's fault for overriding me". My hunch is either he didn't keep any receipts (or at least convincing ones) that explained he wanted no part of Leatherwood, Arnette, etc in the first rounds, and/or there's just too much of a stink on Mayock that he was "Gruden's guy" and it's just time to turn the page in Vegas.

Mayock's first round draft picks:

Clein Ferrell - a 4th overall pick who lost his starting job and had 14 tackles this year

Josh Jacobs - the best pick of the lot, but he's an above average RB and they have a 1500 carry cliff

Johnathan Abram - pure box safety who can't cover or play deep

Henry Ruggs - going to tear it up in the Nevada Penal league

Damon Arnette - more online death threats than games started

Alex Leatherwood - two big penalties that contributed to the Raiders' playoff loss

It seems to have been their pattern at least the last two years to say "Well we wanted to move back but we couldn't get a deal..." which sounds like you reached and this is a way to try and bail out.

I thought for sure Gruden was taking Jerry Jeudy because of his route running.  Not that Jeudy has torn the league up but it just sounded like the Gruden move.  Seems like his guys on TB were slower than the TE but he will in the spot you want every play.

I hate cleaning Mayocks off ship hulls.  Always chewing on the power cables.

TBF, Ruggs was looking like a good receiver prior to his DUI/wreck. That was a less a bust and more a dumbass ruined his life and killed someone in the process.

Oh geez, Leatherwood. Drafted to be their right tackle for the next few years, but failing at right guard, the easiest position on the line.
