Oakland Raiders: Final grades for the rookies of 2018
By Brad Weiss
The final selection of the 2018 NFL Draft for the Raiders was Oklahoma State wide receiver Marcell Ateman, who did not make his debut until Week 11. Ateman looked very good during the preseason, possessing good physical qualities, and showed he could get the job done at the NFL level late in the season.
Standing at 6-foot-4, with good leaping abilities, Ateman is a guy who could be a serious red zone threat for the Raiders moving forward. Oakland does not have much depth at the wide receiver position, and Ateman is a guy who is going to get a long look this offseason if the team can get him under contract.
During the team’s 40-33 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, Ateman went up and hauled in a nice grab in the end zone of the Silver and Black, and that is a sight all of Raider Nation could get used to seeing. He has the talent to make it in the league, and hopefully, that will be with the Raiders.
