Mike Mayock’s daughter responds to report that Raiders don’t trust own scouts

The Oakland Raiders are reportedly taking every precaution necessary to protect their plans heading into the NFL Draft next week, but general manager Mike Mayock’s daughter wants to make sure no one within the organization takes it personally.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported on Friday that Mayock and Raiders head coach Jon Gruden sent their own scouts home for the weekend and are not expected to let them return to the draft room before the big event. While some took that to mean they don’t trust their own scouting department, Mayock’s daughter Leigh insists that is not the case.

This is the second time Leigh Mayock has shared that same story. Around the time of the NFL Scouting Combine earlier this offseason, she said Mike didn’t even trust her with his draft binder.

Apparently the practice is not as over the top as people think. Former Dallas Cowboys executive Gil Brandt, who now works as an analyst for NFL.com, says he and his co-workers used to take similar precautions around draft time.

There have been a lot of rumors floating around about what the Raiders might do in Mayock’s first draft with the team, and there’s no way to avoid that. However, anyone who is actually inside the draft room would have access to some sensitive information. I guess you can never be too careful, even if it means risking the possibility of peeing on your draft binder.
