Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie summed up the day like this:

"Well, we're excited that we added 10 new players. We feel like we got 10 young guys that will help this ballclub and I want to congratulate and say thanks to all the personnel staff and the coaching staff and everyone involved in this whole process. It was a, ended up being a good day. Ended up well, and we're excited for the future of the Raiders."

McKenzie on ending up with 10 picks after starting the draft with seven and if that was the plan:

"No, it developed that way. I mean, going into this today and the whole draft week I wanted to make sure we added seven good players. If we it happened to turn into five or 12, there was no way to determine that, especially going in to it. I didn't want to go into it making trades, but I did want to stay true to the board and if it tells me, hey, you should move down because of the value of it, then I'm going to look into it, I'll take the calls."
