Reggie McKenzie looking to draft for the future, not the present

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie told reporters that he’s looking to draft for the future rather than the present.

“You draft for the future,” McKenzie said, via the Contra Costa Times. “You don’t draft for right now. That’s not the way you do it. That’s not the way I do it.”

The draft is a way for teams to build for the future.  It’s very difficult to find players that will make an immediate impact.
