The Raiders have been expected to make significant changes to their front office for quite some time now. It's a new era for the Silver and Black, with general manager Mike Mayock and coach Jon Gruden running the show.
On Tuesday, those changes were announced. Here's a long list of hirings the team announced to their personnel department.

Raiders promotions: Tom Delaney (senior vice president - director of football administration), David Christoff (director of football analytics), Teddy Atlas (assistant director of college scouting), Trey Scott (assistant director of player personnel).— Scott Bair (@BairNBCS) May 21, 2019
It's no secret that Mayock and Gruden want to work with a specific group of people they can trust. That was evident when the GM sent several members of the scouting department home before the NFL draft and told some they wouldn’t be coming back.
Now that the names have been announced, the Raiders can focus on the task at hand for their final season in Oakland.
