QB Coach Rich Scangarollo Has A Misunderstanding With New QB Gardner Minshew

Regarding whether the Las Vegas Raiders will select a quarterback in this year’s NFL Draft, there was a lot of conjecture for months.

They didn’t.

According to Raiders general manager Tom Telesco, there wasn’t much consideration to draft a quarterback after Day 1.

“On the third day? No, Telesco declared following the draft. Not even on the second day, really. Yes, the first day. But not after that.”

When the Raiders turned to choose in the first round this year, all six of the top quarterbacks in the class were gone. All of the conjecture that had been swirling over the past few months regarding Michael Penix Jr., J.J. McCarthy, and Heisman Trophy winner Jayden Daniels was abruptly dashed when Las Vegas was selected at number 13.

After that, the Raiders were happy with veteran Gardner Minshew II and quarterback Aidan O’Connell, who was back.

“Yeah, if we felt there was a quarterback out there that was better than we had, or could
potentially be better, certainly we would have done something out it,” Telesco said. “But it didn’t line up.”

It’s not exactly “shocking” the Raiders didn’t go with a quarterback anywhere in the draft, as we knew that was a possibility. For the most part, though, the club did address several positions of need.

“So, what I’ll do sometimes, late in the process I’ll look at the board and just say first-round
wise this is kind of where the players are,” Telesco said. “Because it’s not like in the first round you’ve got every position group we have a player to take and maybe a position group that’s a little bit of a weak point here, so I’ll look up there and basically say, ‘Hey, in the first round we’re looking at these three or four positions more than likely.’ How does that line up with our short-term needs and long term needs. I’ll do that the first three rounds, after I really can’t do that. But yeah, I’ll kind of eye it up and then we’ll do some different things that if we take a certain position in the first round, how will that affect second and third. But that’s kind of how it rolls.”
