10. Marcus Smith Louisville (Late Round 2)

Smith was second in the NCAA in sacks last season and has already garnered interest from the Raiders who were quick to speak to him at his pro day. Smith may not be the most explosive player, but he is a grinder with solid hands and some consistently effective moves. Early in the second round may be a reach, but if the Raiders or anyone else can grab him in the late second or early third round they will have a seriously good player at that spot.
