#5 Oakland Raiders: Anthony Barr, OLB UCLA

Rory’s Take: Many people think that after Dennis Allen’s comment on Monday that their franchise quarterback is not on this roster means they will take a quarterback early, but I think it just means they will continue finding quarterbacks they like for the combo of talent and value. This means Reggie will go best player available and that is Anthony Barr who fits as an ideal Leo.

Chase’s Take: I think we will be seeing the Raiders looking at this QB class and thinking that they can get the same value with one of the QB’s left in the second round, this might signal a very likely trade down for Oakland as a player like Tyler Murphy from Stanford might be more appealing to McKenzie as a pass rusher than selecting Barr with the fifth pick. Either way Barr or Khalil Mack will likely be getting their name called at this juncture of the Top 10.
