45. Neiko Thorpe
With the additions to the Raiders secondary, the depth for this unit is much improved, which may put Neiko’s place in the group up in the air.
But if the second-rounder tended placed on him this offseason is any indication, than Ken Norton Jr. has plans for him.
Thorpe can play both safety and cornerback, and position versatility is something we all know that McKenzie and the staff love. Thorpe is also 6’2″ and he ran a 4.40 40-yard dash, so he has impressive physical tools.
He has shown some ball skills as well, so it’s just a matter of cleaning up his technique and becoming more disciplined.
