53. Dexter McDonald
McDonald was a Raiders seventh-round draft pick in 2015, so his familiarity with the staff and the system gives him a little bit of an advantage over other plays fighting for a spot on the 53-man roster.
McDonald posted ridiculous athletic numbers at his Pro Day: 4.42 40-yard dash, 40.5″ vertical jump, 11’2″ broad jump, just to name a few. All at 6’1″, 203 lbs., making it more impressive.
That size and speed combination is obviously coveted, to the physical tools are there. He still need a lot of refinement in his cover skills, but he’ll compete with D.J. Hayden and Neiko Thorpe for a roster spot at the back-end of the position.
