SB Nation Reacts fan poll isn’t overly kind to Las Vegas’ selection of Alabama tackle
Teams around the league hope to have made big improvements to their roster on Thursday night in the first round of the NFL Draft. In addition to making the right picks, the Raiders hoped to excite the fan base as well.
But according to the latest SB Nation Reacts survey, Raiders fans don’t fully support the team using their first-round pick on OL Alex Leatherwood.
Thirty-nine percent of responders gave the pick a “C” grade, while only six percent thought it was “A”-worthy, and 11 percent gave it a pitiful “F.”
The biggest stories of Thursday night overall came, as they often do, from teams hoping to have found their franchise quarterback. Five signal callers went in the first 15 picks.
According to fans around the league, the Jacksonville Jaguars made the right choice with the first overall pick. Fifty percent of NFL fans think Trevor Lawrence will be the best quarterback drafted this year. The Chicago Bears decision to jump up in the draft also appears to be well received, with 15 percent thinking their new quarterback Justin Fields will be the best QB.
The draft continues Friday before coming to an end on Saturday. Following the final pick, fans will once again have a chance to grade the Raiders when the next Reacts survey is sent out.
