​The ​Oakland Raiders' stadium project is under way in Las Vegas and it's moving quickly. Darren Rovell, now of the Action Network, tweeted out some drive-by footage of the Raiders' new home on Wednesday.

The progress of the stadium is not the only excitement for fans of the Raiders, a team that recently hired NFL Network's ​Mike Mayock as their new general manager.


While Mayock acknowledged that final say over personnel will ultimately be head coach Jon Gruden's decision, the 14-year draft analyst described how he expects things to go with his new team, speaking to ESPN's Steve Levy Monday.

"In all honesty, Jon's got final say, if it ever comes to that, and I've got zero problems with that," Mayock reiterated. "Now, having said that, I think we're going to come to a consensus, and I like a little yelling, a little screaming, a little fighting for what players you believe in. But at the end of the day, I guarantee you, Jon Gruden and I are going to know what a Raider looks like and smells like. I don't think we're going to have any issues."


While Mayock has never held an NFL front office position, his player evaluation skills are what drew Gruden and Raiders owner Mark Davis.


The Raiders will need Mayock to hit on players immediately after a four-win season that saw them lose All-Pro defensive end ​Khalil Mack, and two-time Pro Bowl receiver ​Amari Cooper to trades. 


Mayock will have three first round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft to start the Raiders rebuild. If Oakland can build their team as quickly as they're building their stadium in Vegas, they'll be in good shape.
