The Raiders Placed A Bet On Gareon Conley

The Raiders took Ohio State CB Gareon Conley with the 24th pick of last night NFL Draft, much lower than he was expected to go a week ago, and much higher than many teams were willing to take him. Conley is the subject of a rape investigation in Cleveland, and it’s pretty exhausting that, yet again, things like this are a standard part of the discussion of draft value.

Conley, 21, is named as a suspect in a police report detailing the events at a downtown Cleveland hotel in the early morning of April 9. According to Conley’s accuser, she refused to participate in group sex, so Conley pulled down her pants and sexually assaulted her. According to Conley’s friends, who were in the room, there was no sexual contact at all. Conley has not spoken to police; the woman had a rape kit taken at a hospital.

Given the directly conflicting claims and the potential DNA evidence, it feels like the police investigation will be fairly straightforward—but it’s still ongoing. (The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office said Cleveland PD has not yet turned over any information in the case.) I don’t know what happened in that hotel room, nor does anyone aside from the five people who were there, and NFL teams sure as hell don’t know what happened. And yet:

“We did our due diligence throughout this whole process and we trust our research, reports, everything we have on Mr. Conley, and we feel really good about picking Gareon Conley and having him join the Raider team and having him be a great teammate for our players,” Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said.

“The research was done, and it wasn’t just a gut [instinct]; it was based on research, and we are very confident in all the information that we gathered.”
That mention of “due diligence” only serves to remind us that everything we’ve learned about the NFL and its clubs over the last few years indicates that they are very, very bad at investigations, and that “due diligence” can generously be read as “the bare minimum,” or even just “here’s hoping.”

The counterpoint is perhaps that they’ve learned from the Ray Rice fiasco and won’t possibly fuck things up like that going forward. The fact that a polygraph test is being touted as a mark in Conley’s favor would indicate they’ve learned nothing.

Ian Rapoport reported last night that one NFL team asked Conley to submit to a polygraph test, and that he passed. Adam Schefter later said on air that the team was the Ravens. A two-thirds majority of scientists surveyed consider polygraph results to be “pseudoscience”; polygraph testimony is inadmissible in court in most states; a federal law prohibits the vast majority of employers from using polygraph tests on employees or potential employees. Trusting or touting the results of a polygraph test is barely better—and in some cases much worse—than doing nothing at all. But this is all about the dreaded “optics.”

It was be more accurate and less insulting if the Raiders would just acknowledge what’s actually happening here. That they don’t have any idea what actually happened, but are gambling on Conley’s innocence. At some risk, they’re betting that they were able to land a bargain. Other teams refused to take that bet. On some level, that’s every draft in a nutshell. Teams are smart enough now to pretend that their calculations here are any different.

Hate to break the news but.......now Conley has changed his story. He originally said he had no contact with this broad. Now he's saying there was sexual contact but he says he never banged the bitch. Glad Reggie did "miles and miles" of research on this!! Maybe he still gets off on the charge but the fact that he lied already doesn't look good. Anybody surprised? Are we stupid? OF COURSE THE DUMB i love rainbows IS GUILTY!! They are ALWAYS guilty. We'll see what unfolds but once again Reggie puts his fat foot in his mouth. Disgraceful niggger

Reggie thought he was slick drafting an alleged coon rapist that no one wanted and it comes back to maybe bite him...it was a risky pick hopefully he is cleared of all charges.

Reggie is a fucking idiot to gamble with our future like this. Plenty of other picks we could have gone with that were need positions. Hopefully he does get off but one thing we all know the dumb coon is guilty. I don't care if hes guilty or not I just want him to play. Reggie trying to outsmart himself in these drafts. Witch isn't hard to do

There are 2 witnesses that say nothing happen, in the military, if you have 2 people say you did you did it, and vice versa. He is innocent as far as I'm concerned.

Its funny how you white boys forgot about roethlisberger with 2 sexual assaults, nothing ever happened.

Rothlisraper is a scumbag who is white employed by the NFL's darlings the Rooney family...he got the slap on the wrist because of that...Conley better get off we need his skills on the field this year.
