Raiders coach Jack Del Rio lauds 'authentic passion' of Marshawn Lynch

THIS IS NOT A DRILL Tom Hanks Is Boycotting The NFL Because Of The Raiders

Reggie McKenzie trusted his research and went with anything but a safe pick.

He wasn't even sure if Oakland was looking at him as a cornerback or safety although the fact that the team's first-round pick was Ohio State cornerback Gareon Conley, it would appear likely that he will remain a safety. "I can tell you that if our due diligence had turned out the other way, we would not have picked the player". The woman accused him of having sex with her after she told him to stop, though witnesses have said that Conley did nothing wrong.

With all that said, it still stands as a risk for the Raiders, who had a chance to grab an impact linebacker in Alabama's Reuben Foster.

Conley said he took a polygraph test earlier Thursday and is scheduled to meet with police Monday.

McKenzie said that Conley was "hands down" the best available player when Oakland went on the clock. Conley does fit the Patriots from a measurable and testing standpoint.

Conley spoke publicly, denying the accusations vehemently.

"I pride myself on doing things the right way on and off the field", Conley said in a statement. "I can't put it into words", the 6-foot-4, 224-pound Melifonwu said in a conference call Friday night. I realize that I put myself in the situation and I could have used better judgement.

Kevin Durant sizzles with 38, Warriors up 3-0 over Jazz
The Warriors hit back to back threes (one from Curry and one from Durant) to increase the lead to 8 with about three minutes left. Olynyk knocked him to the ground on an illegal screen, and Oubre leapt to his feet, sprinted at him and bowled him over.

Though Conley had originally been predicted to be drafted on Thursday, an allegation of rape reported on Tuesday brought into question whether or not he would be drafted at all.

The front-end depth of the Oakland secondary, which also includes two-time Pro-Bowler Reggie Nelson and Karl Joseph will afford Conley, who allowed a pass completion rate of 37 percent, according to Mercury News' Jimmy Durkin, time to adapt to the National Football League game-speed and develop into the a starter opposite Amerson.

Ohio State defensive back Gareon Conley runs a drill at the NFL football scouting combine in Indianapolis.

Covering tight ends has been a major bugaboo for the Oakland Raiders ever since Jack Del Rio arrived as coach in 2015.

Conley is seen leaving the bar at around 2.20 am - 25 minutes prior to the woman's testimony, TMZ says - with the victim and her friends following. His last meeting with the Raiders before Wednesday was on April 5 and that is when he first expressed his desire to play for them.

"Really talented corner that's capable of playing man or zone".

Del Rio is excited about the defensive haul at this year's draft.
