The Raiders will go into the offseason with a major need for adding a pass rusher, as they were historically bad at getting after the quarterback in 2018. When it comes to this draft class, there are a handful of guys who are going to be elite players in the NFL at the position, including Clelin Ferrell from Clemson.
During the Tigers’ College Football Playoff National Championship Game victory over the Alabama Crimson Tide, Ferrell made star Alabama left tackle Jonah Williams look like he did not even belong on the field. The Raiders need that kind of talent coming off the edge, and Ferrell is a legitimate option at No. 4 overall.
In the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Oakland selected Arden Key, who should be a very good player down the line. They also grabbed defensive tackle Maurice Hurst in the fifth round, and he led the team in sacks this past season, so adding Ferrell would give the team a very young, very talented front four in 2019 and beyond.
