The Oakland Raiders are set to hire NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock as their next general manager, reports ESPN.com's Adam Schefter.

Mike Mayock is on board to work with Jon Gruden and help rebuild the Raiders. On Monday, December 31, the first day after the conclusion of the regular season where most people are anxious about losing jobs, Mayock was hired by the Oakland Raiders. "I don't really know anybody who loves it and studies it more than Mike Mayock".

Reported surfaced on Sunday that suggested that Mayock had become a strong candidate in Oakland's GM search, and sure enough, the franchise made it official by bringing in the former National Football League draft analyst.

Gruden said his relationship with Mayock dates back to 1995 when he was offensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles, and that the two have met often over the years and discussed the possibility of joining forces. With three first round picks at their disposal, this can be a huge opportunity to grab some new promising talent or even trade out picks to possibly grab a veteran guy from another team. Oakland has just one winning season in the past 16 years, going 12-4 under Jack Del Rio in 2016. "To sit in there and try to pretend I did would be disingenuous". He never played for the Steelers, though, as he was cut by the team and instead played his rookie season with the CFL's Toronto Argonauts. Oakland ranked last in points allowed and had the second-worst points differential in the NFL. They are moving to Las Vegas in 2020 but don't have a lease for next season.

A decision is expected before the Super Bowl. He was in the process installing entirely new systems of football and he leaned on McKenzie to run the scouting department and provide information for the draft and free agency.
