Raiders fans show positivity according to results of SB Nation Reacts survey
Thanks to the SB Nation Reacts survey, we are even more confident during this NFL offseason that the Las Vegas Raiders are trending in the right direction. The SB Nation Reacts survey gathers questionnaires sent out to Raiders fans across the country, and the most recent survey shows uplifting results that the team is on the right track for the 2021-2022 NFL season.
The SB Nation Reacts survey was conducted after the recent 2021 NFL Draft with the purpose of trying to get a quick first impression of how the Las Vegas Raiders fans are currently feeling. The most recent SB Nation Reacts survey reveals that about 79 percent of the Raiders fans who have responded to the question “Are The Raiders Headed In The Right Direction?” replied with “Yes”.
While grading the Raiders’ draft class, a majority of respondents replied with “B” with 44 percent. 21 percent graded the draft class an “A”, while 29 percent gave them a “C”. Only 6 percent replied with a “D”, while zero percent gave them a “F” grade. This goes to show that it is clear that Raiders fans were confident with the draft results.
Just for a refresher, the Las Vegas Raiders selected Alambana OT Alex Leatherwood with pick 17 in the first round. The Raiders then followed up with safety Trevon Moehrig from TCU with pick 43 in the second round.
Back to back picks in the third round went to Buffalo defensive end Malcolm Koonce with the 79th pick and Virginia Tech safety Divine Deablo with the 80th pick. The fourth round 143rd overall was acquired from Minnesota via New York Jets and used on Missouri safety Tyree Gillespie. To finish it off, Illinois cornerback Nate Hobbs was drafted in the fifth round and Pittsburgh center Jimmy Morrissey was selected in the seventh by the Raiders.
