    He's going to be a stud. Early reports are good, hopefully Flynn looks his way early and often!

    Oakland Raiders class of undrafted rookies, led by wide receiver Connor Vernon, garnering much praise.

    Good News - Bad News:
    Conner Vernon is impressing at the Raiders mini-camp; Sam McGuffie is not.

    "WR Conner Vernon – Vernon joined the silver and black as a rookie free agent after being undrafted. However, the 6’0â€￾ receiver had a solid career at Duke, being particularly known for his solid hands and being able to get some yards after the catch.On Saturday, he demonstrated his hand-eye coordination, not having any noted drops by any of the media present. While any undrafted free agent faces an uphill battle to make the squad, Vernon took the first step, today, by catching the balls that were thrown to him. TFDS' Levi Damien said that Vernon was a "crisp route runner, doesn't break stride, watches ball in."

    WR Sam McGuffie – another receiver that came to the Raiders after going undrafted, McGuffie had a forgettable day. He didn’t make any catches or plays worth mentioning, and, as TFDS’ Levi Damien said on twitter about McGuffie not standing out, “no news is not good news.â€￾

    Awesome! Makes zero sense why the Raiders wouldn't just draft the guy. It all comes down to money. Pay the brother and have whitey come in as UDFA. Just like in college(walk-ons).

    I think McGuffie has a small chance at getting some playing time this year. He would probably have to make it to the practice squad first.
    I am not going to jump out on a limb here but he has the athleticism to be a Percy Harvin type player and should at least get a shot at returning kicks while playing wr and maybe rb sparingly.
