Which Raiders’ First-Round Picks Are No Longer With the Team?

Even though Jon Gruden’s time as a head coach is over, NFL fans continue to mock his decision-making. On Tuesday, the former Las Vegas Raiders head coach lost his final first-round pick, making him one of the biggest losers of roster reductions.

The Raiders waived Alex Leatherwood, the No. 17 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft, on Tuesday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported, solidifying Leatherwood’s unfortunate status as one of the biggest busts in recent NFL draft history, according to Yahoo! Sports.

The Raiders’ roster move on Tuesday was the latest in a string of embarrassing moves. In total, they have parted ways with their last three first-round selections and elected not to exercise the fifth-year options for their previous three first-round selections.

According to a tweet by a Raiders fan, Gruden and former general manager Mike Mayock are no longer on the Raiders’ Christmas card list.

In his rookie season, Leatherwood was ranked No. 80 out of 82 NFL guards by Pro Football Focus, according to the report.

Tuesday, Gruden joined the Little Rock Touchdown Club, a Little Rock, Arkansas social club, to discuss the scandal and his career in general.

According to a video of the event that was published on Twitter, the former head coach claimed he was “ashamed” of what he wrote in the emails but still considers himself a “decent person.”

“I attend church. My marriage has lasted for 31 years. I have three wonderful boys. Still, I enjoy football. “I’ve made some mistakes, but I don’t believe anyone in this room hasn’t, and I simply ask for forgiveness and another chance,” he stated.

According to Sports Illustrated, Gruden’s agency recently stated that the head coach deserved another NFL job.
