Neiron Ball

With pick 161 in the 5th round of the draft the Raiders select Neiron Ball adding depth at OLB. This was not an expected move perhaps the Raiders are looking at using Ball as a situational pass rusher, as he did have a few sacks last season. Not a good pick based on the fact that he is coming off of injury and could have been taken later in the draft. This pick should have been used to address our secondary.

Grade: D

Max Valles

At this point I am feeling a bit frustrated with the Raiders. Valles addresses our need for a pash rusher he is viewed as very raw but physically he has a high ceiling and could eventually develop into a solid player for the Raiders.

Grade: B
