It's Been Reported That Reggie McKenzie Will Become The Raiders Next GM

Source -- Oakland Raiders to hire Reggie McKenzie of Green Bay Packers as GM - ESPN. That is some disappointing news. As director of football operations, McKenzie has been in charge of the player personnel department for the Green Bay Packers. I think his focus was more at the pro level, while John Dorsey was in charge of the college scouting. Here's what former GM Ron Wolf had to say about McKenzie:

"Reggie's a tremendous evaluator. He can tell you who can play and who can't play. That's what it's all about. Some can write reports but can't tell you who can play.

"Whatever that is, he has that. He has a feel."

I'm a huge admirer of Wolf, but he did also think Mike Sherman would make a great GM.

With a Super Bowl win, and a 15-1 record, it's not surprising to see some people being hired away. The Packers have been promoting from within in recent years, but that could obviously change at any time. We'll have to wait and see how this re-shapes the front office.
